When the Little Corporal met the Iron Duke

The classic Scourge of War series moves to Europe

Arlington, VT, March 24, 2014.

I used to say of Napoleon; that his presence on the field made the difference of forty thousand men.” (Duke of Wellington).

For the first time, developer NorbSoftDev studio ( www.norbsoftdev.net) is leaving their beloved American Civil War for a brand new setting and is heading across the Atlantic Ocean with, Scourge of War: Waterloo!  Excitement is mounting for the highly-praised Scourge of War series – “ One of the finest computer war games ever published” (Real and Simulated Wars), “ I recommend this game in the possible highest terms” (Armchair General), “A real must-buy for strategy and tactic fans” (7idgaming)

A new chapter in the Scourge of War series will be written on the battlefield of Waterloo. Napoleon and his Grande Armée are facing their ultimate challenge in this final encounter against the troops of the Seventh Coalition. Players will be able to prove that the Emperor’s return in March 1815 was not in vain, or join the armies led by the Duke of Wellington and von Blücher to eliminate the French threat forever.

We are ecstatic to announce that Matrix Games will be the exclusive worldwide publishing partner for the Scourge of War: Waterloo. JD McNeil CEO of Matrix Games comments: “Norb and I have been buddies for many years and it is of great personal satisfaction to me that he has taken his very specific style and brand of games to a new level. I know that Norb is supported by a truly magnificent team and the level of research and attention to detail that they bring to their games is quite outstanding. It is a joy and privilege to be working with these guys into the future”

In order to celebrate this announcement, the award winning Scourge of War series goes half price for the entire week. This is a great opportunity for fans of the series to complete their collection and for the newcomers to join the ranks of the Scourge of War battalions!
