Back to News Listing Starshatter v4.0.3 Released!

Posted: Monday, September 20, 2004 by Matrix Support

Type: Update

New Version of Innovative Space Combat Simulation Available Now! Matrix Games and Destroyer Studios are pleased to announce version 4.0.3 of the exciting new 3-D space combat simulator, Starshatter. Released this summer, Starshatter is the next generation in space combat simulation games. The new update, version 4.0.3, is a comprehensive patch that updated every version of Starshatter. Compared to the original release version, it includes 45 fixes and enhancements, including a new updated version of the built in Magic modeling software for mod-makers. The most important improvements since 4.0.2 are some rare crash fixes, improved AI fighter landing behavior and addition of specular texture map support. We recommend that all Starshatter players update to this release.

Starshatter extends the gameplay concepts of the classic space sims by combining fighter and starship combat in a single game. You begin the game as either a fighter pilot or the commander of a small starship. As you progress through the game, you can earn promotions and awards until you are commanding a massive fleet carrier with three wings of fighters and a complete escort of warships.

Starshatter integrates elements of real-time-strategy games by allowing fleet commanders to direct the battle on a tactical level, launching fighters and directing destroyers to defend the fleet and annihilate enemy forces. You will arm fighters for patrol or strike missions. You will send orders to your escorting destroyers and frigates to engage enemy starships or defend the fleet from attack by enemy fighters. You are the admiral, and you decide how to employ all of your forces in battle. It is all up to you.

Game Features:

  • Exciting and original science fiction universe
  • Integrated fighter and starship combat
  • Seamless blend of space combat simulation and real time strategy
  • Dynamic campaign engine with four dynamic campaigns

    To End All Wars Breaking The Deadlock Released!

    Tuesday, February 24, 2015

    Once the mass of the defending infantry become possessed of low morale, the battle is as good as lost.” (Douglas Haig – Commander of British Expeditionary Force)

    Early 1915 – After a massive initial push from the Central Powers on the Western Front, the war is bogged down. Commanders from both sides protect their positions with strong defensive structures and fail to find breaches in the enemy lines. Artillery and barbed wire make the assaults deadly and wasteful. But in Breaking the Deadlock, the first expansion of Ageod’s World War 1 wargame To End All Wars, players can develop new tactics to outsmart their opponent and break the stalemate once and for all!

    Breaking the Deadlock focuses on key moments of the Great War. It provides a series of short, intense and very detailed scenarios in which every single turn has decisive consequences on the final outcome of the battle!

    And It's not over! We are also releasing patch 1.02 for the base game, bringing a host of improvements, including bug fixes, scenario changes and much more!

    In the 22nd century, we left a dying earth so that a fortunate few could settle the new home.

    In time, we would learn that life on a frontier colony is neither prosperous nor peaceful. Our first encounter with the creatures started with hostilities and confusion, and ended with sacrifice. Fourteen years later, our leaders remain politically entangled and unable to see the threats that linger, both afar and within our own walls…
