Arlington, VT, February  21, 2013 –  Matrix Games ( www.matrixgames.com) is proud to announce the release of Unity of Command: Red Turn, the first DLC for Unity of Command, for both PC and Mac. The story is set shortly after the events of the Stalingrad Campaign focusing on Operation Citadel, the ill-fated German attack at Kursk.

Unity of Command: Red Turn is  a Turn-Based strategy game developed by 2x2 Games that relives the gigantic Soviet campaign made by German Army in  Eastern Front near the city of Kursk in July and August 1943. It is remembered as the largest series of armored clashes and the costliest single day of aerial warfare in history.

The Soviet campaign features 17 scenarios, which put together tell the story of how a maturing Red Army won the war through perfecting the art of the deep operation – essentially a Soviet variant of the blitzkrieg. 2x2 Games has added scenarios that cover everything from large scale operations such as Rumyantsev or Bagration, to the more confined and intricate affairs such as the Battle for Kiev in November 1943.

There are also four scenarios that have been developed specifically for multi-player, including the tense Korsun Pocket and Operation Konrad.

The PC and Mac releases of Unit of Command: Red Turn are available in the Matrix Games Online Store.  The Mac version of Unity of Command: Red Turn requires the 1.04a update.
