Back to News Listing Matrix Games Releases War In The Pacific v1.60 Update

Posted: Wednesday, June 22, 2005 by Matrix Support

Type: Update

Map Changes and Bug Fixes Abound!

Matrix Games and 2 by 3 Games (www.2by3games.com) are pleased to announce the release of the sixth post-release update for the acclaimed War In The Pacific.

This update focuses on some minor bug fixes and a multitude of subtle map changes to better mimic the War in the Pacific.  The bug fixes number just over 20 fixes and changes to the War in the Pacific system.  Some of the more important items include fixes involving the capture of enemy bases, the loss of experience when replacing large numbers of soldiers in a unit, and unit “all follow” commands.  Additionally, there are 41 map changes that more accurately depict the war.  They are all minor in size but may play a major role in forming new strategies in a few specific areas of the world.  Special Matrix Games and 2by3 thanks to a dedicated fan, Andrew Brown, for these map improvements.

 

The v1.60 update is available online as a non-comprehensive update that requires the previous installation of War in The Pacific 1.50. 

 

Based on the highly acclaimed Uncommon Valor design, War In the Pacific is an expanded and massive undertaking that has been recognized as another masterpiece from the veteran team at 2by3 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.

Pandora: Eclipse of Nashira gets release date

Thursday, August 28, 2014

Since the release of Pandora: First Contact in late 2013, developers from Proxy Studios have been carefully collecting players’ feedback and thinking about the pros and cons that were highlighted by the community. At the core of this debate were requests about the diversity in this 4X sci-fi game, and the richness of the diplomatic relations between the factions. As a result the team has been working hard to make the game deeper and released several patches and a free expansion – Return of Messari – that went in this direction, and brought brand new content with a game changer that ensured fun and challenge for the late game.

“This war, like the next war, is a war to end war.” (David Lloyd George – UK Prime Minister)

One hundred years ago today, Russian and German forces were standing facing each other in East Prussia. This early confrontation on the Eastern Front – known as the Battle of Tannenberg - resulted in the almost complete destruction of the Russian Second Army and the suicide of their main commander, Samsonov.
