Exquisite Corps: Panzer Corps – Afrika Korps

A tank on holiday

Corps, corps, korps. Panzer Corps, a Panzer General for the new generation, looks a lot like it could have been from the previous generation, or even the one before. It’s the kind of game I imagine my grandpa would have played on his rickety Victrola while riding a Penny Farthing. It apparently maintains the high quality of its spiritual forefather, which means I really should play it at some point, and perhaps that time is close. Afrika Korps is an upcoming expandalone for the game, covering WWII’s North African campaign from the Axis perspective. So, roll into the Arabian Peninsula and “maybe even invade the underbelly of the British Empire and threaten its crown jewel: India”. That sounds very untoward. Surprisingly elegant trailer below.

Coming soon.

    bah, i missed the anniversary sale :(

    i had forgotten all about this game since last time i checked its price tag.
    to make things worse, it’s meanwhile spawned DLCs (total price: €43).
    i can only hope this game will make it’s way out of the matrix/slitherine ghetto.
    untill then, there’s still the original Panzer General series.

    That’s actually a pretty cool trailer. Unlike CGI trailer I watch yesterday
    Though I doubt I’m going to buy it anytime soon.

      The original was very good as well (the trailer, as well as the game).

    Oh nice. Panzer Corps was a lot of fun, and one of the rare strategy games these days that has the sense to include hotseat play. So I’ll probably play this as well.

    Why do tanks never seem to have shadows?

    They must be LIGHT TANKS.
