Epsom, United Kingdom, April 6th: Slitherine is pleased to announce that its Second World War turn-based strategy game Panzer Corps 2 will be released on Xbox Game Pass PC on April 12th. Panzer Corps 2 will be arriving as one of the first deep strategy games for PC gamers on Game Pass to date, joining Slitherine’s recent Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector on the service.
Originally released in March 2020, Panzer Corps 2 follows as a spiritual successor to 1994’s Panzer General – a true pioneer in the hex-based WW2 genre. Built on Unreal Engine 4, Panzer Corps 2 sees players enter battles through a variety of single-player and multiplayer modes. The game features a staggering 1,000 unit types that can be commanded on the battlefield, and its single-player campaign contains more than 60 unique scenarios.
As of present, the Panzer Corps franchise has sold one and a half million copies on PC, and it shows no signs of slowing down any time soon. Slitherine has published five DLCs for Panzer Corps 2 following its launch (Axis Operations 1936, 1939, 1940, 1941, 1942), and a new Pacific DLC is set to arrive in early 2022. This upcoming DLC will be available on day one for owners of the Game Pass version, but a separate purchase will be required.
Panzer Corps 2 received a glowing response from fans at launch, and it has maintained a ‘Very Positive’ response on Steam with 2,100+ reviews. Slitherine is thrilled to now be able to bring the Panzer Corps series to a whole new audience of players on Xbox Game Pass PC.
