Panzer Corps iPad is ready
Release date and details announced
Epsom, UK – December 13th, 2013 – It’s finally here. One of the best strategy games of the past decade is coming to iPad on December 18th, unchanged and with no features left out. Panzer Corps Wehrmacht has been defined as “a great remake of a timeless classic”, “a great wargame”, “the most compelling game in years” and now it’s coming to the touch generation.
The work on Panzer Corps for iPad has been a real team effort between our internal production team, Flashback Games and The Lordz Games Studio”, said Iain McNeil, Development Director of the Slitherine Group. “We really wanted the game to include every single feature the PC game has and that’s why it’s taken such a long time to release it, but we’re sure players will think it was worth the wait. We’ve even added some cool new features not on PC”.
Panzer Corps will release with full cross platform multiplayer, allowing players to match up against friends all over the world on any platform. It will also include all previously released DLCs and expansions, including the recently release Allied Corps and the ten linked Grand Campaign add-ons.
We are willing to give this market something new, while staying true to our wargaming niche values”, said JD McNeil, Chairman of the Slitherine Group. “This project is a stepping stone because it shows we work with our development partners to bring the games to the next level even years after they’ve been released”.
With the recent announcement of Panzer Corps being Greenlit on Steam it promises to be a very bright future for the series. For more information about the game, check out the product page.

Cool. Going to check it out tonight when I get home.

$20 is a pretty steep price tag for an iPad app, though...hopefully this is absolutely amazing and cooks me dinner, too!  8)

Buying the base game, plus all the add-ons will cost you a minimum of $80 ($20 for base game + $60 for all add-ons).  Its very expensive for a mobile app, but Slitherine claims it is a direct port of the PC experience with no material cut.  Whether or not this justifies the price tag, I suppose, is a subjective thing.
