Sequel to Award-Winning World at War with Diplomacy, Espionage and Events!


Matrix Games (www.matrixgames.com) and 2by3 Games (www.2by3games.com) are proud to announced the sequel to the acclaimed Gary Grisby’s World at War is now available. As a special promotional offer, owners of the original Gary Grigsby’s World At War can save 35% off the regular price. If you’re a previous owner go to http://www.matrixgames.com/discount/ggwaw-aworlddivided.asp to enable your discount.


David Heath, CEO of Matrix Games said “2by3 Games represents the old school game design and development and once more proves it here. The new features and enhancements provides players with many new levels of game play and strategies.”


This new sequel, Gary Grigsby’s World At War: A World Divided, adds a host of new features to grow the engine well beyond the original game in terms of grand strategy. A World Divided includes spies, neutral country diplomacy, variable political events, unit experience and scenarios that occur after the war as well as starting earlier than the original.


The original game was recently awarded the 2006 Origins Vanguard Unique Game of the Year Award, following an IGN Game of the Year and Editors’ Choice Award. The focus of the series places players at the helm of one of the five major nations during the Second World War. Managing supply lines, production, troop movement, and resources, it has a simple and elegant design with variable levels of difficulty and detail.


Gary Grigsby’s World at War: A World Divided takes this design to the next level, adding espionage, code-breaking, variable political events, unit experience and neutral country diplomacy. These changes vastly affect the dynamics of play and add entire new layers to the grand strategy mix of the original. Players will have to learn to be more flexible with their tactics, facing more important decisions on these new fronts.


In addition to the new features in Gary Grigsby’s World At War: A World Divided is a completely new ‘what-if’ scenario that carries forward from the end of the war into a conflict between the Western Allies and the Soviet Union. Russia’s massive and experienced army is up against the West’s well equipped forces and industrial might. In addition to simply starting with this scenario, players have the option to jump right from the end of their normal campaign game of WWII into this alternate history. This creates a whole new set of strategic choices as players will have to think into the future and plan for their war against the other super-power while still fending off the Axis forces.


The overall ease of play is retained in Gary Grigsby’s World at War: A World Divided. The game ships with four tutorials, three campaigns, and five different scenarios starting from 1939 and the invasion of Poland and extending into the mid 1940s.

Any hints on how one might purchase this game as a gift?

Can I pay with credit card to enable someone else to download?

For that matter, can I use my GGWAW discount to purchase the game for someone else, or will I need to get his GGWAW registration information to do that?

Each GGWaW registration number may be used once to get a discount coupon. So you can use your own if you like (but only once), or get the reg number from your friend.

I don't remember how the download process works as to whether you can send the download info to your friend or if the download happens immediately. Can someone else help out with an answer on this?

Runs to store, madly waving money in fist.  Stop, looks around.  Searches very carefully ... no "A World Divided" anywhere in sight.  Whole body slumps and trudges off. 

Joel, you are such a tease.

I must admit, I've seen it come and go (at least the main item listed on the right of the store showing recent releases). The one time I didn't see it in the US store I clicked on WWII and it was listed there. I was able to add it to my cart so I figured it was ready to go. I can't explain why it is going in and out. When I tried it now, I can't get it in the store at all but I see it in the UK and Europe stores. I'm sure Matrix will sort this out before too long. There may be a glitch of some kind with the store.

Just checked again and as of 2:30 PM California time I see it in the US store.

I can report that one Brit is excitedly downloading right now- currently 12%.  Very much enjoyed WAW - and that was only against the computer.  Very much looking forward to this update and determined this time to take on real people via PBEM.

Hi,

Please go to www.findmyorder.com, you'll be able to retrieve it there. Also, we do send an e-mail out so you may want to check to see if it got stuck in your spam filters.

Regards,

- Erik

Can you explain in idiot friendly terms exactly how you did it. I'm not having a lot of luck figuring how or where to use my serial number.

Grrrr I even get the wife's permission on this too.

I finally mastered the process of how to end up with my promo code.

I fill in all my info, go through all the processing, last possible step is reached, I get a window wanting one more layer of verification of my credit card, and it won't accept my details for love of money.

On the third refusal of my card code and postal code it informs me "Sorry Les your card is now locked, please contact your card service to get it unlocked.
Well I did, and according to them, it isn't locked.

Is there a fly in YOUR programming is what I am wondering currently.

Well, I'm off to try again.
