OK, it’s not a new game but it’s a biggie game and one with a significant discount of 30% so if you’re a fan of these big strategic games, but don’t yet have this one, now must be a good time to have a punt. Ypu can always check out our review from back in 2011 and see what Jim Cobb had to say about it before you buy.

 

PR stuff follows, with links to get the game. There is also a Twitch stream tonight demonstrating the game – another chance to see it before you dive in and buy (or not depending on what you think of what you see &hellip

.

 

Arlington, VT - July 9, 2015.

"Here they found real war, but they were not ready for it. They were used to easy victories.” (Georgy Zhukov - Soviet military commander)

 

Originally released in 2010, Gary Grigsby’s War in the East, the most detailed computer wargame ever created about the Eastern Front of World War 2, has benefited from five years of ongoing and regular support since release, with many major updates following one after the other, including the v1.08.04 update just released today.  Along with the release of several very ambitious updates which have expanded gameplay and increased realism and historical depth, there have also been two expansions.  Today, War in the Eastone of the 50 Best Strategy Games Ever according to Rock Paper Shotgun – is starting a new grand campaign with its official release on Steam.  Its two expansions Don to the Danube and Lost Battles are also available on the digital platform now as part of the combined package.

 

With this new release players have a new chance to dive into this conflict thanks to the accessible gameplay, the perfectly represented chain of command and order of battle and engage the enemy in massive, dramatic campaigns, including intense battles involving thousands of units with realistic and historical terrain, weather, orders of battle, logistics and combat results.

 

 

Gary Grigsby’s War in the East is a truly epic representation of the scope and sweep of the Second World War on the Eastern Front and is unparalleled in its scale, detail, and ambition!

 

In order to celebrate this important milestone, we are discounting the game and the Deluxe Edition (base game + expansions) during the week of the launch:


•    Base game $79.99, with launch discount of 30% moving it to $55.99

•    Package price $89.99 with launch discount of 30% moving it to $62.99

 

We are also going to offer a free Steam key to anyone who bought a copy from the Matrix Games or Slitherine store, once the game is available on these digital platforms!

 

And tonight, on July 9th, 20.00 (CEST), we are going to give players a sneak peak of the game on the official Twitch channel of the Slitherine Group!

 

Get more information on Gary Grigsby’s War in the East from its official product page

 

 

And on Steam.

Watched the stream :  Eric Rutin made this look so easy. (left click to select and right click to move or attack is basically all you need to know  )

 

I'm thinking about getting it and taking a year off from work.

 

If anybody has both, which one do you consider the best : War in the East or War in the West ?
