London, June 14th, 2007–Slitherine ( www.slitherine.com) and Matrix Games ( www.matrixgames.com) are proud to announce the release of Commander– Europe at War! Now gamers can snag a copy of this highly anticipated strategy title from Slitherine’s digital distribution system.

Iain McNeil from Slitherine Software said of the release“It’s been fantastic working with Matrix Games yet again and we here at Slitherine are particularly excited about the release of Commander– Europe at War. We’re confident that gamers will enjoy the infinite replayability and rich game dynamics of Commander– Europe at War for many years to come.”

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said“Commander– Europe at War is one of those games that just makes time fly by with its addicting qualities and fantastic gameplay. One moment the game is loading up for the first time and the next time you look away from your screen, hours have evaporated when they seemed like only minutes!”

Commander– Europe at War puts the player in charge of any major nation’s army during World War II. With only two goals at mind, survive and conquer, the player is charged with advancing and smashing enemy lines and developing cutting edge technology to outsmart their opponent and unite Europe under their victorious banner!

Commander– Europe at War is easy to learn but hard to master. Players will find themselves immediately immersed in the delicate situation preceding the Second World War and then undoubtedly glued to their chair when all mayhem breaks loose across the continent. Research new technologies to gain an edge on your opponent, manufacture armies, fleets, and bombers, and use all available strategic and tactical might to best the enemy. Commander– Europe at War includes detailed and realistic combat that models supply, morale, terrain, leadership, equipment, training, strategic weapons and fog of war. To capture the immense scope and distance of WWII, Commander– Europe at War will include 6 epic scenarios including the famous Barbarossa campaign, D-Day and the battle for France, and a Grand Campaign that will let the player re-fight the entirety of the Second World War the way they see fit!

Get more information about Commander– Europe at War from the official game page on the Slitherine website. North American gamers can also get their hands on a copy of the game from Matrix’s website.
