The wargaming legend Gary Grigsby has done it again. After massive games like World at War, War In the Pacific, War between the States and above all War in the East and its expansions Don to the Danube and Lost Battles, Gary and 2by3 Games are developing a new impressive masterpiece to bring joy to eager wargamers: Gary Grigsby’s War in the West.

Mr Grigsby, along with Joel Billings of 2by3 Games (www.2by3games.com), presented the game during the Press Conference we hold at Historicon.

Players will discover a huge game covering the whole Allies’ Campaign in the West front, from the invasion of Sicily and Italy in 1943, through France, Belgium and Holland in 1944 and through the crossing of the Rhine and the end of the war in Germany.

Gary Grigsby’s War in the West contains huge improvements to the War in the East engine in the areas of logistics, land and air combat and amphibious and airborne invasions, allowing the players to choose among multiples strategies in both air and land battles.  It also features a bigger map (36k hexes versus 25k for WitE), new terrain types, detailed Strategic Bombing and improvements to non-ground support missions, more realism in Logistics and Weather conditions, new Amphibious and Airborne Landing Rules, new Victory conditions… and much more!

The game just entered into Beta Testing!
