For Immediate Release

Epsom, UK – March 12, 2014

The award-winning strategy game Panzer CorpsA perfect Introduction to the wonderful world of wargaming (PC Gamer UK), One of the best beer and pretzels turn based wargame releases in years (Armchair General), A great turn-based strategic wargame that captures Panzer General’s deep and involving gameplay (Gamespot) – is now launching an attack on a new platform with its release on Steam!

Thanks to the fans that supported the game with thousands of votes, Panzer Corps was Greenlit on Steam last December. After two months of optimizing and adapting the game to this platform, and implementing 84 unique achievements, Panzer Corps and all of its expansions are finally out! This means the players have access not only to the base game but also to the 10 Grand Campaigns, Afrika Korps and Allied Corps expansions.

This project would not have been possible without the full support of our fan base. In order to thank the Panzer Corps community, we are pleased to announce that we are giving a free Steam key to anyone who has a copy of the game, wherever they bought it from. All they need to do is register their serial number here and they will be able to redeem their code!

“We are very pleased to announce that we will be taking a selection of our titles to Steam.”, said JD McNeil, Chairman of the Slitherine Group. “Without doubt Steam is the uncontested leader in the PC distribution market and it is difficult to see what competing Distribution platforms have to offer other than their persistent policy of deep discounting. Whilst this may preserve the Distributors revenue stream it does little to aid Developers. We are of course Publishers and our relationship with our developers is quite different. We work together with them throughout to build and market their games and this new relationship with Steam is a further expansion of this policy”.
