This update includes a large list of fixes and improvements, ranging from a final fix for some reported sound issues to many AI opponent enhancements and a reduction in the effectiveness of PT boats. Over sixty fixes and new features to the game system combine with 115 data fixes and updates to make this a must have patch for every War In The Pacific player.

The v1.30 update is available online as a comprehensive update for all previous versions as well as a smaller incremental update for owners of War In The Pacific who already updated to v1.21 and are experiencing no sound issues.

Based on the highly acclaimed Uncommon Valor design, War In the Pacific is a completely new and massive undertaking that is considered the latest masterpiece from the veteran team at 2 by 3 Games, which includes Gary Grigsby, Keith Brors and Joel Billings.

The scale of War in the Pacific: The Struggle Against Japan 1941-1945 is 60 miles per hex and losses are individual vehicles, aircraft, guns and squads. Since half the planet Earth is covered by the titanic Pacific struggle, the game is massive in scope, covering thousands of ships tens of thousands of aircraft. Virtually every ship, air group and battalion sized or larger troop formation is covered in exacting detail.



2 by 3 is about World War 2 games done by 3 guys – Gary Grigsby, Keith Brors and Joel Billings.  Veteran designers and developers with multiple Hall of Fame titles under their belts, they are in the midst of a scheduled three game series which started with the highly acclaimed Uncommon Valor.  War in the Pacific is their second design in this series for Matrix Games, which will be followed by the highly anticipated grand strategy title World at War in early 2005.  For more information, visit their website at http://www.2by3games.com/.

Decisive Campaigns: Barbarossa is now unleashed!

Tuesday, November 24, 2015

22 June 1941. The German-Soviet border. The signal to unleash Operation Barbarossa has been given!

Strong Panzer groups break through the Red Army lines. Ambitious generals like Guderian and Hoth push their mechanized forces to their limits.

Initial resistance by a confused and surprised Red Army seems weak... and the Soviets take massive casualties.

But soon the realities of war on the Eastern Front will become clear.

Play as the Germans and experience the chain of command from the inside. Fend off the demands of your superiors and corral your strong-headed subordinates into working together as a coordinated team. Politics and people and are just as important as the sweeping advances conducted by your Panzer Divisions.
