Back to News Listing Gary Grigsbys World at War: A World Divided is Updated

Posted: Wednesday, March 09, 2011 by Sean Drummy

Type: Press Release

A new scenario, some rule changes, and even some new features coming this way!

Matrix Games and 2by3 Games (www.2by3games.com) are proud to announce the release of the comprehensive 1.040 update for their awarding-winning WWII grand strategy game, Gary Grigsby’s World at War: A World Divided. The update comes with the usual bug fixes, some increases to moddability including a file structure overhaul, new features like widely variable screen resolution options (all the way up to 6400x4800!), rule changes, a new scenario, and more.

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said, “Critics and gamers agree, 2by3 Games knows how to make world class World War II strategy games – and World at War: A World Divided is certainly no exception. Even several years after its release, this grand strategy gem continues to grow and improve!”

Gary Grigsby’s World at War: a World Dividedbrings you to back to the dawn of the greatest and most terrible war the world has ever seen. The forces of the Axis, including Germany, Japan and Italy, face the might of France, Great Britain, the United States, China and the Soviet Union in the epic struggle of World War II. Starting with the blitzkrieg attack on Poland, the course of the war is determined by your actions as the leader of one or more major factions, opposed by human or computer players. A World Divided takes this conflict one step further, with a future what-if scenario that occurs right at the end of the war. Allowing players to go continuously from the end of their game into this new scenario, Russia’s land army powerhouse and consolidated position squares off against the Western Allies naval and air superiority, and who’s territory is massive, yet less easily defended.

At your disposal are the full air, land and sea forces of each power, A World Divided now features spies and signals intelligence as well, capable of stealing technology and other information on the enemy, and providing an upper hand in combat situations. Each unit can be upgraded in a variety of researchable areas. Build more tank divisions, improve your fighter planes or focus on strategic bombardment – the choice is yours. More expensive units take longer to build and shortages in industry, resources or manpower can play havoc with your plans. Take command in this dynamic, turn-based strategy game of World War II that puts you in the role of some of the most legendary leaders of history. Four tutorials, three campaigns and five scenarios let you learn the system quickly and start fighting the whole war and beyond. Make it happen in Gary Grigsby’s World at War: A World Divided!

Get the update here. The update is comprehensive and will bring all previous versions of Gary Grigsby’s World at War: A World Divided to version 1.040. Get more information on Gary Grigsby’s World at War: A World Divided from its official product page.
