WarPlan -- new game announced from Matrix Games

This looks very promising -- like a nice bridge to the gap between Gary Grigsby and Strategic Command games.  Beta signups are open!

I'm definitely interested.  Looks like the map only covers the European theatre?  No Pacific/Asia campaign then.
Forgive me my old friend.  But I must use all my experience...to get home.

The dev commented in the form when asked about that and replied they wanted to shake out the concept  before going the whole world war route.

Hopefully they can distinguish themselves, it looks super bland.

This is a hilarious comment to me because I can't tell any of these games apart! :D

They all look awful, it's probably the main reason I haven't seriously dived into any of them.  Ironically enough I was thinking this might be the game I buy to take the plunge.

It will look better when IronX does a counter and map mod for it, something like this http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=4584600  :)
