Major Update for Modern Wargame
Matrix Games today announced the release of a major new official update for their grand tactical war game of modern combined arms combat, Flashpoint Germany. The new version 1.10 is now available from the Matrix Games website and represents nearly a year of additional development effort on the original release.
This new update contains dozens of changes to Flashpoint Germany including new features, improvements to existing features, and a host of minor fixes including improvements to LAN and PBEM play. Some new items include a more realistic combat model, many interface improvements, major improvements to reporting, map and counter resizing, better use of recon units, improved sighting rules, better AI and additional new units such as the M-60A3 and the BMP-1.
Flashpoint Germany occurs at the height of the cold war. The historical outcome we know hasn’t happened yet and this time things will end differently. This time, with the world at the brink of World War III and the Soviet Union in a state of near collapse, the decision to seek a military solution was made. Square off as either the Warsaw Pact or the NATO alliance in this war to end all wars!
Matrix Games recommends that all owners of Flashpoint Germany download and install this new version. This is a comprehensive update which will work on any previous version of Flashpoint Germany and is now the only update required for owners of the game.
Flashpoint Germany spans 17 different scenarios and comes complete with a scenario editor, order of battle guide and equipment database. Additionally, players can play online, by e-mail, or against a competitive computer opponent. Each battle map is a detailed representation of the German landscape, representing the actual terrain that would have influenced battles throughout West Germany.
This patch can be downloaded from the Games or Downloads section of the Matrix Games website, or the public FTP.
