Afrika Korps big expansion announced!

Panzer Corps: Afrika Korps

Afrika Korps is the first major expansion for Panzer Corps. It brings to the table a lot of new content, but also a number of novelties in gameplay and a full-blown support of desert warfare into the game.

Welcome to the desert!

The year is 1941 and you will lead the German Afrika Korps, and it`s Axis allies, into Libya and Tunisia during the North African Campaign of World War II.
The reputation of the “Deutsches Afrikakorps” or “DAK” was synonymous with that of its first commander Erwin Rommel, now it is up to you to overwhelm the Allied forces in North Africa, secure the Suez Canal and take hold of the oil rich lands of the Arabian peninsula, maybe even invade the underbelly of the British Empire and threaten its crown jewel: India.

 

New Features:

  • A branched brand new Afrika Korps campaign with 20+ new scenarios.
  • Several new MP scenarios set in the African theatre.
  • More than 20+ new units added to the equipment table, like gliders and flamethrowing tanks.
  • More varied scenario objectives.
  • Scenario objectives could be changing during the course of a battle.
  • New desert-related weather types.
  • Added are 10 new Afrika Korps heroes.
  • Improved AI.
  • New media like: new concept art, music, etc…
  • New Intro Trailer.
  • The Library extended with the most prominent WW2 airplanes.
  • New desert tile-set and desert camouflage units.
  • All new units and tile-sets will be available for use by the modding community through the existing editor.

    At least! so nice lovely news!!!

    BTW,I was wondering any chances to know which r gonna be the upcoming campaign expansions for Panzer Corps?

    Cause from what I heard so far, there is gonna be a West 43-45 expansion for the Axis, and after that u r gonna get focused on developing expansions for the Allied (mostly for UK, USA but for the Soviets as well) in their European theater of war.

    So no more new expansions, like a Japanese expansion?
    Thnx!!!

      We have plans to offer the Western campaigns from the Axis side after Afrika, later on offer the Allied campaigns, both East and West. A Pacific theatre is possible, but no decision on this is made yet.

    I realtime love this game and was verre happy with the new release :)
    New stufs like the multiplayer option and the map editor are realy great.
    Playing against other humans give’s you à total different game then playing the games AI.
    Looking forward to the new expansions with the improved AI.
    The editor is great but if i play my own scenario’s the enemy realy makes à lot of stupid mistakes wich makes it verry easy to win sometimes,even on the highest dificult level.
    Is there something i can do within the editor to improve this ?

    Any chance there will be an “overrun” attack on any future releases or patches like in Panzer General 2? This was a nice feature when my Tigers could destroy a unit of 1 artillery and then go after a unit of 1 infantry.

      We had many discussions and debates about this, in Beta on the forums… looking at all the pro`s and contra`s we , so far , have always decided not to include it.
