Posted: Thursday, May 08, 2008 by Sean Drummy

Type: Update

A new v3.9.2 update is available and a new Development Initiative takes shape!

Matrix Games and Advanced Gaming Systems (www.advancedgaming.biz) are pleased to announce the release of another quick update for their famous naval warfare simulator, Harpoon: Advanced Naval Warfare. The comprehensive 3.9.2 update brings another quick fix to a land unit logistics issue and also marks the announcement of a new community-focused development initiative.

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “This latest update brings another small but effective change to make the Harpoon experience all that it can be. We’re proud to be working with Advanced Gaming Systems to bring gamers this award winning naval combat simulator!”


The 3.9.2 release is the second in a series of 3.9.x updates that are intended to improve game stability and increase responsiveness to customer feedback, with the goal of improving the entire game experience for the Harpoon community.  Please check the Harpoon 3 ANW forum for information on how to be a part of this initiative.


Erik Rutins, Director of Product Development at Matrix Games, stated, ”Together with AGSI, we’ve embarked on a new initiative to make it our development priority to work through the outstanding issues reported to us by the community and release frequent updates as these issues are addressed.  As a part of this new focus, we’ve entered the entire community-maintained issues list into our tracking system and opened that up to the public.  Along with this increased visibility into our progress on these issues, the public will also have the ability to submit reports directly into our system again.”


Harpoon 3 – Advanced Naval Warfare is the culmination of decades of development and fan support, resulting in the most comprehensive, realistic, and accurate simulation of modern combined air and naval operations available to the gaming public. Harpoon 3 gives the player an opportunity to manage some of the most advanced air and naval assets available in the world, putting them in the middle of many historical and ‘what if’ scenarios. Players will have the chance to battle it out against a variety of enemies using technology from all of the premier naval powers of the day: Iranian Revolutionary Guard in the Persian Gulf, re-live Operation El Dorado Canyon, strike at the heart of Libya, guard the Greenland-Iceland-UK gap to stop a Soviet naval invasion of the Atlantic, or stalk unwary U.S. shipping in a Soviet Akula-class submarine.


Get the update here. The new update is comprehensive and will bring the game up to version 3.9.2.
