Autre sortie intéressante cette semaine, le premier épisode de la nouvelle série d’extensions de Command – Modern Air Naval Operations est désormais disponible. Intitulé Old Grudges Never Die, il s’agit d’un scénario vous mettant dans la peau, soit coté russe, soit coté turque, d’un commandant de forces aériennes confronté à un incident prenant rapidement des proportions très alarmantes.

Basé sur des faits s’étant déroulés en novembre l’année dernière, et n’ayant fort heureusement à l’époque pas donné lieu à une escalade militaire, ce petit DLC vous propose pour à peine trois euros de simuler avec précision l’hypothétique scénario d’un embrasement russo-turque de la poudrière syrienne.

Pour plus d’informations sur ce premier volet de Command Live, dont nous tacherons de vous reparler dans quelques temps, voyez cette fiche chez Slitherine ou celle-ci sur Steam. A lire aussi en complément ce document présentant le scénario au format PDF et à la façon d’un journal.

Quant au jeu de base et à sa précédente extension Northern Inferno, reportez-vous à notre test de Command – Modern Air Naval Operations, à notre AAR Opening Moves, ou encore à cette fiche chez l’éditeur ou à celle-ci sur Steam.

Command LIVE. Play history live, as it happens
The first episode is out on Matrix Games and Steam
Epsom, UK – July 19th, 2016.

The Command LIVE project has officially taken off. The first release, Old Grudges Never Die, is out on our site and on Steam. You can check it here.

We are really proud of this first episode and of the project as a whole. Developers WarfareSim and Bart Gauvin, an experienced designer from the community, have worked hard to bring this project to life and this is only the start. It’s the first time a detailed simulation takes on real life events to create such detailed fictional, but true-to-life scenarios.

The first DLC to be released under this name is Old Grudges Never Die. Players take control of either Russian or Turkish forces in the attempt to maintain national honor and pride, while keeping a lid on hostilities to prevent the outbreak of larger conflict.

This scenario follows on from the real events of November 2015, when a Russian Su-24 was shot down by a Turkish F-16. The consequent geopolitical situation and the interests at stake, including the involvement of NATO, Syrian and rebel forces and ISIS, create a set of circumstances where every false move can end up in a bloodshed.

To better understand the historical landscape and the forces in play, the Command LIVE News Network has put a reporter on the ground and we just received their video report. The editorial team has also sent a report that we have published into the first issue of a newspaper that will be published alongside each Command LIVE scenario.

Old Grudges Never Die is an expansion for Command: Modern/Air Naval Operations will be available on July 19th on our stores and on Steam!
