Cold War RTS “Armored Brigade” Now Available

Matrix Games and Slitherine have just released their Cold War RTS Armored Brigade.

Set between 1965 and 1991, Armored Brigade is a historically accurate RTS wargame that allows players to fight a theoretical direct conflict between NATO and the Warsaw Pact. You can check out the launch trailer above.

The game features 7 playable nations, over 500 units, and 4 gigantic maps based on real locations that likely would have seen the heaviest fighting in Europe if the Cold War ever turned hot.

Here’s a rundown of the game:

Armored Brigade is a real-time tactical wargame, focusing on realism and playability. The game has drawn inspiration from classics such as Close Combat, Steel Panthers and Flashpoint Campaigns: Red Storm.

In Armored Brigade the Cold War has turned hot, and Europe is once again torn apart by conflict. An “Iron Curtain” divides the Western Powers gathered together under the NATO banner from the Soviet Union and its Warsaw Pact Allies.

Take command of the deadliest mechanized formations available during an arc of time spanning from the Kennedy-Chrušcev confrontation to the final years, and fight your opponents in large and detailed maps all across Europe.

Large maps, modelled upon real terrain make each battle a true test of wits. Weather and visibility all play a role and with several munition types, including air to air combat and artillery, no battle will be the same. Exciting and challenging tank warfare only adds to the level of realism.

Armored Brigade is available on Windows PC via Matrix’s webstore.
