Saudi Arabia and Iran’s international relations are getting worse, after the news of gunfire between an Iranian marine ship and Saudi forces.

Command LIVE: Black Gold Blitz will be available on November 7th.

command-live-black-gold-blitzThe conflict that sees Saudi Arabia facing Iran explodes once again. One of the Iran’s marine ships returns fire after it has been attacked by a Saudi force.

While both sides refuse to take responsibility for what happened and the truth will never be known, the situation goes out of control when the Iran decides to retaliate against the Saudi Arabia for its behaviour.

Both nations’ weaponry, military and navy forces have advanced considerably during the last few years, and both sides’ objectives are clear: to strike at the enemy’s economic heart, the oil infrastructures.

The rest of the world can only stand by and watch as the war arises.

Command LIVE: Black Gold Blitz is the latest expansion of the Command series that will bring you in the Middle East, for one of the bloodiest battles of modern times.

This November, the 7th you will have to choose one side and lead it to victory!

  • Playable as Saudi Arabia or Iran.
  • Asymmetric warfare, matching a large fleet of advanced aircraft against an enemy weaker in that field but strong in ballistic missiles and unconventional operations.
  • Both offense and defense must be considered. Knowing how to balance defending your own oil infrastructure while destroying that of your enemies is essential for victory.
  • Special operations that are both risky and possibly lucrative.
  • A large target set consisting of everything from derricks and pipeline segments to valuable refineries.
  • A wide range of playable units that range from cutting-edge aircraft such as the Eurofighter Typhoon and F-15SA to Cold War classics like the Tornado, F-4 Phantom, and F-14 Tomcat.
  • Coordinate units based on the length of two gigantic countries.

command-live-pole-positionsMatrix Games announce that Pole Positions, the sixth installment in the Command LIVE series, has been released. This new episode explores a scenario in which the United States have to conduct a dangerous operation against Russian infrastructure without being detected!

The militarization of the Arctic is in today’s lead stories, as the region is playing an important but underrated role in the fragile post Cold-War balance between Washington and Moscow. The access to areas previously hard to reach has convinced most coastal states to increase their claims in the region.

The United States, in particular, are worried by news of the great progress made by the Russians in the deployment of the SHELF’ underwater Sound Surveillance System (SOSUS), and experts say that we might expect a reaction to this threat.

Can this reaction trigger an open conflict?

command-live-pole-positionsCommand LIVE News Network is always on the run! We are receiving rumours of an increased military activity in the North Pole. The United States is boosting their readiness in the Arctic after getting confirmation of the deployment in the region of the “Belgorod”, a Russian Oscar II submarine converted for “special operations” among the Northern Fleet. This is just the latest of a long list of actions aimed to militarise the Arctic, due to the presence of high-valuable resources beneath its surface.

We have sent a special team to investigate and gather all the information about this mounting crisis!

command-live-pole-positionsThe North Pole is hitting the front-page news these days, turning to be the next element of confrontation between Washington and Moscow.

Russia is in the 4th year of a 15-year project to install the ‘SHELF’ underwater Sound Surveillance System (SOSUS), a very modern equivalent to the US Navy’s Cold War system of listening arrays in the Greenland-Iceland-UK (GIUK) Gap.

And it’s news from yesterday that a Russian submarine launched a cruise missile in Arctic Barents Sea, testing Moscow’s offensive-defensive capabilities in the far north.

The United States are seeing this revamped interested and military activity from the Russians as a main threat to their claims over the Arctic, as the region has always been considered a military and economic choke-point of extreme importance.

Do we have to expect a reaction from Washington or will it choose other, subtle, ways to protect its National Interest?

command-live-korean-missile-crisisFor decades, North Korean elites have tried to make their Armed Forces strong enough to discourage any possible foreign intervention. The main strategy adopted so far has been to increase missile capabilities, both to threaten border nations and for self-defense.

But recent news is confirming the fear that the Pyongyang’s regime has made significant progresses in developing an intercontinental rocket, making its reprisals harder to predict and counter.

This new menace has forced Washington and Moscow to put into action their own Contingency plans, and no one knows how this conflict will escalate.

Korean Missile Crisis, the fifth installment in the Command LIVE series, has been released! This scenario explores what could happen if Russia and the United States decide to act independently to put an end to Pyongyang’s ambitions.

command-live-korean-missile-crisisWe are receiving news from the Korean peninsula about an American mobilization of troops and warships after the confirmation that Pyongyang has conducted a new series of nuclear tests! The Command: LIVE Team has been dispatched in the region to gather all the information about this crisis! Watch the report here!

The situation on the Korean peninsula is becoming more dangerous month by month. The bellicose statements from the ‘Supreme Leader’ notwithstanding, its North Korea’s foray into the Nuclear weapons arena that has made the situation critical.

The Supreme leader of North Korea, Kim Jong-un, in somewhat typical fashion has been making extremely provocative boasts in the lead up to Generalissimo Day, a day which honors his father Kim Jong Il, the 14th of February. The main thrust of these rants is characteristically anti-western but there was a hint of something big that intelligence communities are taking seriously. True to form, both a successful missile launch and a Nuclear test on the same day startled the world.

Command LIVE: Korean Missile Crisis will be available on February 28th!

command-live-korean-missile-crisisNorth Korea has been a pariah for many decades among the International Community. Its totalitarian regime has strongly pursued the policy of “military-first” (or Songun), building one of the largest military apparatus in the world.

His ambitions have achieved a new phase with the active development of a nuclear deterrent, and different warheads have been tested in the last years, violating numerous UN resolutions.

What if he develops the capacity to directly hit the continental area of the United States? What kind of response would this threat trigger?

Korean Missile Crisis is the latest installment in the acclaimed Command LIVE series, and it aims to explore a scenario where Russia and the US are competing to put an end to Pyongyang’s ambitions

command-live-don-of-a-new-eraDon of a New Era, the fourth installment in the Command LIVE series, has been released! This scenario explores what could happen if Russia decides to military intervene in Ukraine and Transnistria, and what kind of countermeasures NATO and US could take in response!

The Ukrainian conflict of 2014 has undoubtedly contributed to destabilize an already fragile region. All along the borders of Ukraine, Moldova and Russia, tensions are rising frequently, and no one knows exactly what would happen if Moscow, the biggest player, will decide to force the situation escalating the conflict.

Even if an open war could have limited military objectives, a new successful Russian intervention – probably justified by the necessity to help “the oppressed Russian minorities” – might have tremendous political repercussions, especially for Eastern Europe NATO countries.

What is certain, is that the air superiority will play a key role in an asymmetrical war involving unconventional forces, and both the USA and Russia have dispatched their best assets in the region, including stealth fighters as the F-35 Lighting II and the Sukhoi T-50 PAK-FA.

If Russia fully mobilizes, could NATO prevents her moves?
