Hope that's right but to me looks like it might be just some screenshots although they alone are enough to make the mouth water

Sorry, November 23rd is not the scheduled release date - where are you seeing this? We are releasing a game on November 23rd, but it will be Revolution Under Siege.

http://www.matrixgames.com/products/396/details/Revolution.Under.Siege.

War in the East still looks good for a pre-Christmas release though. The manual printing has just finished and they are on their way back to our warehouses.

Regards,

- Erik

If the release is imminent now, how about a teaser?

Like the large map (similiar to what we got for WitP AE) I asked some time ago for, a .pdf excerpt from manual, or even better: a tutorial video.

Erik I didn't know it was that far along. I have to say that this is my most anticipated game since I started gaming 40 yrs ago with the AH game Blitzkreig. 4 of us spent more than a few all nighter's playing SPI's War in the East and I fell in love with the period and scope of the campaign. ( almost cost me my future wife! ) I have read most of the posts and the commitment that seems to have gone into this game has amazed me. I wish I had the time to playtest, but I must say thanks to all of the effort that has gone into the game and the constant info that has been available almost making us part of the process. I'm sure I am not alone when I say I am waiting to support the game with a purchase. Based on what I have seen I'm sure I won't be disapointed whenever it is complete. I am willing to wait so they get it right! In the meantime I'm going back to shooting down allied B-17's in BTR which will probably have to move to 2nd on my all time list of favorite games.

Thanks!

Jimbo

If the manuals are printing that means this game's release could be any time now. Now all we need is a War in the West covering North Africa and Western front from Gary Grigsby.

The printed manual is about 130 pages. It is the first 5 sections, including the main section on the interface along with all the important charts and tables that appear in the later sections. The full main manual .pdf file is 26 sections and it looks like it's going to be somewhere between 325 and 400 pages (and that's not counting the tutorial and the editor documentation which are separate .pdf files). Now in that main manual you not only get all the rules, but also 5 pages of strategy notes, a couple of pages of designer's notes, and a 15 page article about the evolution of the armies during the war by Jim Wirth. There's also an extensive recommended reading list (with English and Russian entries). Lots to look at.

Hey I thought a game of this magnitude would have a detailed manual!

Just about fell out of my chair when I read the 23rd, as it's my birthday, but a few days longer won't matter...what a great surprise. Looking forward to some serious reading material over the holidays.

Comic books, maybe.

Glad to hear that this will (probably) be out before Christmas.

Horrible news!
I had hoped War in the East would be delayed for another couple of years.

90% of my spare leisure time is tied into WitP AE for the next 2-3 years.
How on earth will I be able to handle War in the East at the same time!

War on several fronts is hell guys, be warned

The "horrible" part here is, that WitE was the last 'big' game in Matrix current pipeline. Aside of WiF, whose release is arguable. It might take years until we'll see another grognard title.

Eric, there is a mistake on the product information screen. It says there is no AI for this game.

Wild if you notice it does say 1-2 players, so there has been a typo when it mentions no AI. I've been playing the game and I think maybe the AI isn't really artificial as it does seem quite clever.
It also says that download time is 0min.
Once the game is ready for release you'll find that the product diescription is a bit more detailled.
