Back to News Listing New v1.020 Update Available for War Between the States

Posted: Thursday, August 07, 2008 by Sean Drummy

Type: Update

Another update is released for the turn-based American Civil War grand strategy hit!

Matrix Games and 2 by 3 Games (www.2by3games.com) are proud to release an update for their popular American Civil War grand strategy game, Gary Grigsby’s War Between the States. The update includes over a dozen fixes, and three rule changes: one to prevent damaged units being sent to border states, an improvement in scouting rules and levels, and a change to make smaller cavalry raids less destructive.  We recommend that all players upgrade to v1.020.

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “The legendary 2 by 3 Games team has done it again with War Between the States. This new grand strategy game is already being hailed as a must-have classic.  It brings fantastic innovation and addicting gameplay to one of the most important events in American history.”

 

Taking gamers back to the start of the American Civil War, Gary Grigsby’s War Between the States allows players to experience the trials and tribulations of the role of commander-in-chief for either side.  Historically accurate, detailed and finely balanced for realistic gameplay, War Between the States is also easy to play and does not take months to finish.

 

Promote and cultivate talented young colonels or brigadiers to build Corps and Army commanders that will help you fight and manage the war effort from battles to training of recruits with the utmost efficiency and success.  An innovative multi-faceted rank promotion system allows leaders to gain in abilities and power based on their successes, while also simulating the historical progression of leaders during the war.  Each decision you make must be weighed carefully, as promoting and demoting leaders, entering neutral states, raising troops and many other actions cost you the political capital that will determine your ability to achieve victory.

Buzz Aldrin’s Space Program Manager gets release date.

"But why, some say, the Moon? Why choose this as our goal? And they may well ask, why climb the highest mountain? Why, 35 years ago, fly the Atlantic? " - US President John F. Kennedy ; 1962.

On July 20th 1969, the Apollo 11 mission successfully landed. For the first time in history, human beings walked on the Moon. The conquest of space that had started a few years after the end of WWII reached its climax with a manned lunar landing. In competition with the USSR, the US gained a decisive advantage when images of Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and their lunar exploration module were broadcast on live TV all over the world from the Sea of Tranquillity. President Kennedy won his historic gamble by landing a man on the Moon and returning him safely to the Earth before the end of the decade. A whole new era of space conquests was opened…
