Operation Sea Lion scenarios structure revealed!

The German Invasion of Great Britain is probably one of the most momentous what ifs of the Second World War: what was the German plan? What were the key objectives of the invasion?

To answer these questions Panzer Corps is back with a huge DLC, comprised of over 30 scenarios covering all the possible phases of the invasion: Operation Sea Lion!

Designer Nico has worked hard alongside the core developer team to make this expansion one of the most challenging ever created for Panzer Corps.

The complex structure of the campaign allows you to choose between different attacking vectors depending on your actions on the battlefield. Take a look at the branching campaign below!

Be prepared! Operation Sea Lion will release on October15th!

The campaign can be started with the core force from DLC 40, so you can begin the invasion of England with the core forces that emerged victorious in France. Alternatively you can start with a preset core force.

Panzer Corps: Operation Sea Lion announced!

“[However] a German invasion of England would be a matter of life and death for the British, and they would unhesitatingly commit their naval forces, to the last ship and the last man, into an all-out fight for survival” Erich Raeder, commander-in-chief of the Kriegsmarine

Great Britain, the propulsive core of the British Empire, is surrounded. After the fall of Scandinavia and France only a few miles of sea divide the land of Albion from the Reich. It’s only thanks to the Home Fleet and to the Royal Air Force that the Germans are not yet raising their flag on the Big Ben.

But for how long?

Panzer Corps: Operation Sea Lion is the latest expansion of the multi award-winning strategy title Panzer Corps, and it is focused on one of the most famous what if scenarios of the Second World War: the cancelled (but planned) German invasion of the British Isles, which was the plan to put an end to the war on the Western Front and to force the remnants of the Commonwealth forces around the World to surrender.

The campaign can be started with the core force from DLC 40, so you can begin the invasion of England with the core forces that emerged victorious in France. Alternatively players can start with a preset core force.

Scenario list
Channel Islands, Eagle Attack, Dover, Canterbury, Gravesend, Crossing the Thames, Basildon, Luton, Brighton, Newick, Guildford, Reading, Farnborough, Milton Keynes, Gibraltar, Lyme Regis, Minehead, Plymouth, Shepton Mallet, Bristol, Besieging London, Storming London, Oxford, Coventry, Irish Sea, North Sea, Hadrian's Wall, Antonine's Wall, Orkney Islands, Reykjavik.

Easy to learn, simple interface, hard to stop playing once you start, you don't have to be a serious wargamer to appreciate.

9/10 - CPU Gamer
When it comes to being Panzer General, Panzer Corps beats the pants off the competition.

Overall, PanzerCorps is one of the best “beer and pretzels” turn based wargame releases in years. The game is very polished and stable. It is fun to play.

...nothing short of brilliant.

This was seriously one of the best games that we have ever played. If you do not pick this up, you are missing out.

If one asked how would Panzer General be like if it was released today? The answer is simple - it would be Panzer Corps.

9/10 - EntDepot
Panzer Corps has me dreaming in hexagons nowadays.

Now that the official review is complete, if this were any other game it would go on the shelf next to other games that have been “finished” but I have every intention of firing it up again.ລ

Jawoll, Generalfeldmarschall!
Accessibility: 9/10
Replayability: 8/10
Graphics: 6/10
Sound: 8/10

Panzer Corps is an accessible wargamer in the tradition of Panzer General. As the name suggests, it is a Korps-level wargamer that focus on maneuver and combined arms tactics. It eschews complex supply lines and routes in favor of easy to understand icons and actions. Playing a grand campaign from the cobbled stones of Poland in 1939 to the plains of Ukraine in 1943 and back to ruined Berlin in 1945 is gratifying in the sense that you get a sense of ownership in the accomplishment of your units. They will earn their Ritterkreuz, and so will you too if you last that long.
Multiplayer is good, not exceptional. Be prepared for a long evening if you so chose to play.
A serious quibble in this otherwise impeccable game is the DLC's which seem to pester and tease gamers with content. The DLC's are quite enjoyable in its own right but not worth the asking price. Get the core game, it is worth it. Get the DLC's when they are on sale.

Easily one of the best games I've ever played. Endless replayability, a massive amount of content. A classic game that's easy to learn, hard to master. Complaints? Two big ones: the price and a lack of polish. The price speaks for itself. As far as the lack of polish goes, there's an unforgiveable absence of multiplayer features. No leaderboard, not even a way to track your win/loss ratio. The menus are cluttered, unorganized and rather ugly. No Steam workshop support. The game is practically screaming for these features but it seems that the developers have turned a def ear. Perhaps they feel the game has enough content, and maybe they're right, but for the price they're asking, one would expect a more complete experience.

A game anyone would certainly enjoy, but in it's current state, I can only recommend it when it's on sale...

This is like the talented son of Panzer General II! If you're looking for graphics and flashy animations, look elsewhere. This is old school "Just one more turn as the hours go by quickly" gameplay. It's pretty basic, but quite strategic. Move all your units during your turn, then the computer does the same. The great thing about this game is that you can customize your army as you see fit. If you like a massive airforce with a few tanks to use blitzkrieg it! Do you like to use artillery to soften up city defenses before sending in the's there. some strategies work better than others, but no matter how you play it....IT'S FUN....and so addictive. Change history...invade England...invade the USA...if you're good enough. Spending your prestige points after battles is like opening presents at Christmas. Pay no attention to my hours on this game...I purchased it a long time ago from the original producers and have over 1500 hours logged in. Purchased every expansion and to this day I still play it most played game ever. One of the things I really like is that periodically a unit will get a bonus modifier applied to it as a reward (+3 Attack, +1 defense, +1 spotting, etc.) These modifiers actually make the unit noticeably better so it truly feels like a reward. As units gain experience in scenarios, you can also overpower them making stronger as the war progresses and when new technology arrives you can even upgrade them! I personally like the campaign modes and I like to try and rewrite history. Difficulty is adjustable as well as prestige points which allows you to upgrade and purchase new units. You can set it to be hard as hell or make it so easy that you just annihilate the enemy. Love the navy units as well! If you ever played Panzer General II and liked it, you'll feel right at home here. Lots of fun!!

Panzer Corps is a brilliant in depth World War 2 strategy game. The top down turn based strategy game is based on the classic Panzer General. If you are a fan of World War 2 games or a strategist at heart you will love this game. Check out my Tutorial videos if you are just getting started.

A Panzer Corps Review

Alright, I am a wargamer and I have a "thing" for WW2 so I might not be that objective when I'm saying that this game's pretty damn good! Beating the campaign on Field Marshal, testing my skills with people on multiplayer, spending that many hours of my life (not only on this but many other wargames as well) give me the right to review this, I think :P

On with a brief presentation of the game!
Panzer Corps Wehrmacht (PC) is a light, turn based (Igo-Ugo) strategy game and a reimplementation of the old school Panzer General (PG). If you liked PG you'll almost definitely love PC and the opposite of course. The idea is simple. You start the second world war commanding part of the German army, starting from the invasion of Poland and decide its fate with possibilities ranging, depending on your performance, from its historical demise to a *minor spoiler* glorious blitzkrieg through the entire US.

The fun of the game derives through its tactical simplicity though it leaves a lot of room for depth—for those willing to look for it.
All you have to do is move and fire your units in any order you desire. Simple enough, huh?
Sure, but in order to master the game you have to grasp many subtle mechanisms. Panzer Corps features: a variety of terrain with unique characteristics, unit suppression, an interesting initiative system, unit retreat/surrender, a weather system, supply (albeit in an unrealistic form due to the lack of supply lines), entrenchment, zone of control, strategic redeployment and many more interesting elements.

Furthermore the game comes with many units that, besides chrome, offer many tactical opportunities. Will you plow the battlefield with slow-moving King-Tigers or blitz with Panther tanks? Will you dominate the skies with a combined fighters-dive bombers force or follow a fighter-bomber doctrine? Due to the many different unit types offered, the efficiency of combined-arms really shines.

Another aspect of Panzer Corps is its subtle yet engaging strategic element.
First of all you are given command of a core force that you control through the entire game, in contrast to a couple of secondary/temporary units that are provided for a single scenario. This core force can be expanded by buying units between or during the scenarios but, friendly note, don't try to figure the scale; units may be divisions, corps, armies or whatever, depending on the scenario. In addition, every unit gains experience through combat and the dilemma of how to replace loses, through regular (inexperienced and cheap) or elite (battle-hardened and expensive) replacements, arises. This of course means I have to explain prestige as well...

Prestige (the game currency) depends on your performance on the scenario. That is the capture of objectives (primary/secondary) and the battle outcome (normal/decisive victory or defeat). A decisive victory may have to come many times through attrition which may cost in the long-run. Even more choices!

However not everything's great...
To begin with, the A.I. is relatively uninspired. It doesn't act terribly ahistorically or plain silly (besides two rare situations) but the difficulty of most scenarios comes through the numerical advantage of the enemy. Then we have the repetitive objectives, at least in Wehrmacht, "Capture all cities in X turns". A few people nag about the lack of replay value as well but I beg to differ. Another thing that bugged me is the fact that, although there is an option of a detailed battle sheet both before and after each combat, the game lacks detail both in the tutorial and the manual. This leaves those eager to dig deeper no option other than to go through many forum posts. For example artillery has a rate of fire stat that isn't mentioned anywhere in the game! Every basic piece of information is covered however and the interface, in most cases, is intuitive and elegant.

Finally, the realism issue arises. Due to its abstract nature this game is far from a simulation at a strategic level. The lack of many important details make it unrealistic at a tactical level as well. At its heart however every decision the player makes is realistic, in a sense that the same dilemmas arose to WW2 generals as well. Somehow, through the careful deduction from realism, this game manages to remain true, as much as a light wargame can, to the nature of the war.

All in all, Panzer Corps is a strategy game I would recommend to everyone; both the uninitiated who wants to discover the joys of wargaming and the grognard who wishes for a simple game.

Rating: 9/10
