Fix the bayonets and prepare to charge, this turn-based American Civil War strategy tour-de-force is coming your way!

Matrix Games and 2 by 3 Games (www.2by3games.com) are thrilled to announce that Gary Grigsby’s War Between the States is now available for purchase! Now gamers can experience the award winning design talent of Gary Grigsby and his team as they take us to the American Civil War in a brand new grand strategy game that is sure to be viewed as a masterpiece of the genre.

The release of this highly anticipated title comes after an in depth promotional video in addition to the release of some strategy sections of the manual and a forum after action report. Altogether, the newly available media will give gamers a clear picture of the engaging and addictive gameplay to come.

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “The 2 by 3 Games design team has triumphed once again with this remarkably deep and realistic but also accessible American Civil War title. With so many wargaming classics to their names, it’s no wonder why so many gamers have hotly awaited this release!”

Taking gamers back to the American Civil War, Gary Grigsby’s War Between the States allows players to experience the trials and tribulations of the role of commander-in-chief for either side. Historically accurate, detailed and finely balanced for realistic gameplay, War Between the States is also easy to play and does not take months to finish.

Promote and cultivate talented young colonels or brigadiers to build Corps and Army commanders that will help you fight and manage the war effort from battles to training of recruits with the utmost efficiency and success. An innovative multi-faceted rank promotion system allows leaders to gain in abilities and power based on their successes, while also simulating the historical progression of leaders during the war. Each decision you make must be weighed carefully, as promoting and demoting leaders, entering neutral states, raising troops and many other actions cost you the political capital that will determine your ability to achieve victory.

Explore the historical tactics of the day to find the best way to win. Use cavalry to raid the enemy supply depots and conduct reconnaissance to determine the best place to strike and then engage the enemy head on and watch the epic push and pull of battle unfold in front of you. In between battles, the mighty Union navy or brave Confederate raiders can strangle and disrupt supply flow at critical times in your campaign. Build river gunboats and transports to exploit the strategic value of the Mississippi and entrench and fortify key locations to deny passage to the enemy.

Test your mettle and strategic vision in one of the most bitterly fought contests in history – the War Between the States.
