JTS/WDS Christmas Present #1

Hi All,

Well with the Holiday season we’re in a giving kind of mood!

We’re happy to announce that the first Gold updates for the Western European Panzer Campaigns are now available.

The two very popular Normandy ’44 and Bulge ’44 have been upgraded to the same Gold standard as the Eastern European games.

Both games code will now be standardized on the JTS codebase. There will be no further support for the HPS versions

Included in the Gold updates are;

  • All new game maps
  • All new 2D & 3D map graphics
  • All new unit graphics and counters on map
  • All new unit cards
  • All new in game sounds; weapon, explosion, background and miscellaneous
  • All released Volcano Man scenarios
  • For Bulge ’44, a brand-new Campaign game by Brian Jennings. Scenario #16_14s Wacht am Rhein (Herbstnebel) is a completely revised campaign game including strategy options and larger forces for both sides.
  • New ‘modern’ toolbar icons
  • Code update – disruption no longer halves movement during the day and is reduced by one third at night.
  • Code update – reinforcement ‘place all’ has been migrated across from the First World War Campaign series.

Brian’s new Campaign Scenario (#16_14s Wacht am Rhein (Herbstnebel)) has used significant new information that has become available over the last couple of years. This information was not available when the original Bulge ’44 campaigns were designed.  This scenario will be a real delight for prior players of Bulge ’44 as the availability of many units has changed and is a worthy addition for the Gold update.

Here are some additional screenshots (all can be clicked to view at full size);

  • I just wanted to offer some praise for Bulge ’44 Gold. I have been playing the simulation steady these past two weeks. In particular I want to single out Brian Jennings Herbstnebel Campaign scenario which offers a player a very detailed and immersive grand tactical Battle of the Bulge experience that is outstanding! I hope he and other WDS team members/contributors continue to produce this type of excellent bonus content for more PzC Gold releases.

    To all WDS staff I offer my sincere thanks for the brilliant results you have achieved with the PzC gold revamps it makes these JTS titles worth every penny spent in purchasing them.

    • CJ,

      Thank you! I know Brian will appreciate your commentary. We have another of his scenarios to include with El Alamein. For reference, he also contributed a new version of the Minsk campaign as well. We have been fortunate that a number of veteran players have taken the time to provide new campaigns that are great alternatives to the stock scenarios. You should be seeing more West Front games soon!

    That is good to hear that more Brian Jennings scenario’s are in the works for upcoming west front Gold releases.
    I have PZC Minsk ’44 on my shopping list so I look forward to playing Brian’s new scenario, also I am going to purchase Korsun ’44 at the same time and try out Caesar Libran Mareno’s new campaign scenario for that title as well.
    I and many other hollowed cheeked grognards are looking forward to the next PZC Gold releases as well as the brilliant Civil war gold titles that feature the impressive talent of the Old Banshee himself!
