Default Command: Chains Of War announced!

Chains Of War announced! Are you ready for 21st century warfare?



After the great success of Northern Inferno, WarfareSims and Matrix Games are proud to announce Chains of War, the second standalone expansion of Command: Modern Air / Naval Operations!

A new generation of warfare is about to commence. In a world where the speed in communication is the blood of modern armed forces, new weapons are being developed to protect – or to poison – this blood. Through 12 thrilling campaign scenarios, you will experience a full escalation in conflict over the Pacific Ocean between the United States and China, in which the high level of technology has broken all the old rules! Or go back in time and experience conflict in 4 different historical hotspots! Are you ready for the next level of War?

NEW! Communications disruption by network/cyber attack or any other arbitrary factor: Isolated units realistically limit their tactical awareness to only what they themselves can detect and engage, and are completely on their parent side of control. Say goodbye to Borg-view of the battlefield!

NEW! Cargo, landing and airdrop operations. Load mobile forces on ships, aircraft and even submarines, and unload them on any suitable point on the battlefield. Platforms are realistically limited by volume, weight and crew on what they can transport.

NEW! Comprehensive damage model for aircraft. Aircraft may be shot down outright or receive damage that will still allow them to limp back home. Different aircraft can absorb different punishment on their fuselage, cockpit and engines. Depending on the amount of damage received a plane may be "mission killed" if its repairs take so long that it misses the fight.

NEW! Advanced weapons for the new age of war. Tactical EMP weapons, railguns, high-energy lasers and more!

Get more information about Command: Chains of War from its official Product Page!

Command: Chains of War
can be played as a separate game (with the possibility to upgrade it to the base game with all the available database and scenarios at any point in time). Alternatively, it can be integrated as a new set of scenarios for owners of the original Command: Modern Air/Naval Operations Game of Year Edition!

Everybody's in for a real treat with this one. And the campaign is just the icing

I'm impressed at how much CMANO has managed to expand both in depth and breadth, even just over the past year or so. This update is actually a big deal, because it makes another major push in both of those directions, making smaller scenarios more interesting, and bigger scenarios more manageable. And Command's scope was already pretty flexible to begin with.

The new features are platform update right and aren't exclusive to Chains of War?

Hi,

The new features can be enabled and used on any scenario as long as the player has purchased the Chains Of War DLC.

Thanks.

Howdy, any word on pricing?

Also, do lasers require this EP to work now?

Hi,

1. Pricing is TBA. This DLC will function similar to Northern Inferno (both standalone and also as expansion if CMANO is already installed).

2. Existing lasers (ABL-1 COIL-laser and LaWS) are the "Phase 1 HELs" and do not require any DLC license. The new laser types introduced with Chains Of War will require the DLC license in order to be usable in a scenario.

Thanks!

Zircons are OP in the game, even with lasers and rail guns and what not.

I just hope the North Korea scenarios aren't too many and the meaty focus is fighting the Chinese Navy in South and East China seas.

Would be great if the Chinese Navy was to be playable too in the scenarios.
