New features, rule changes, and bug fixes adding more shine to this award winning game

Matrix Games and 2by3 Games (www.2by3games.com) are pleased to announce the release of another update for their critically acclaimed American Civil War strategy game, Gary Grigsby’s War Between the States. The update includes almost a dozen bug fixes and nine rule changes/added features.

Gary Grigsby’s War Between the States was recently elected Wargame of the Year by Gamer’s Hall and Flash of Steel and has received many favorable reviews and accolades from game reviewers around the world.

The v1.040 update includes a number of important changes to gameplay, such as an accumulating time factor that influences leader initiative, lower initial amphibious transport capacity, reduced Confederate ironclad production and adjustments to supply costs for depots and forts, among others. It is strongly recommended that players read through and print out the Rules Addendum (added to the Documentation folder by this update) to see all the important changes with references to the relevant manual sections. The in-game tutorials have been updated to reflect the rule changes, but the video tutorials do not include any of the rules changes that have been included in the patches made since the initial game release in June 2008.

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “It’s no surprise to us why Gary Grigsby’s War Between the States has won so many awards. In fact, some of us feel that this is arguably the best game design in Gary Grigsby’s hall of fame career, and it just keeps getting better. This new update adds more reasons, if any more were needed, for any American Civil War fan to pick up this game right away.”

Taking gamers back to the start of 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.

Get the update here. This update is comprehensive and will bring any previous version of War Between the States to version 1.040.

What are the differences between this update and the 1.034 Public Beta, if any?

None, just a number change.
