Thursday at 10:00 PM, Eastern US Time from the Matrix Games Website
Matrix Games together with 2by3 Games (www.2by3games.com) and Justin Prince Designs are proud to announce a live chat with Justin Prince, creator of War Plan Orange: Dreadnaughts in the Pacific 1922-1930, a standalone expansion and mod for the critically acclaimed War in the Pacific. The live chat will take place from the Matrix Games chat room, available under “Services” at the top of the screen, on Thursday December 8th, 2005 at 10:00 PM Eastern US Time.
The year is 1922, World War I has come to a close but tensions still run high. The United States, fearing the worst, developed a system of plans for a potential war in the Pacific against Japan. In the real world most of these plans never saw the light of day, but in War Plan Orange: Dreadnoughts in the Pacific 1922-1930, the conflicts that the planners envisioned actually occurred.
Gone are the strategic bombers and large carrier task forces. In their place are dreadnoughts, battleships, battlecruisers and biplanes. Face off ships from World War I and the inter-war years, including (depending on the scenario) hypothetical ships such as the Battlecruiser Lexington, the 18” South Dakota Class, the British G3 and the Japanese Kii.
War Plan Orange: Dreadnoughts in the Pacific 1922-1930, from the team that brought you the critically acclaimed historical air, naval and land combat wargame War in the Pacific, puts you in control of Japan or the Allies (including The United States, Great Britain, The Commonwealth, France and the Netherlands) in a hypothetical post-World War I conflict that would have reshaped the future of the world. Enjoy the historical accuracy and meticulous attention to detail through one of the most immersive strategic and operational wargame engines ever created.
Two campaigns with three variants each as well as two smaller scenarios (eight scenarios total) cover two hypothetical wars in the decade of the 1920s.
So join us for the live chat this Thursday, December 8th, and discuss anything about the game or the historic period with Justin Prince. Again, it is at 10:00 PM Eastern US time from the Matrix Chat room, which is available under the “Services” tab located at the top of the screen.
