Back to News Listing Flashpoint Germany v1.02 Update Released!

Posted: Wednesday, April 6, 2005 by Matrix Support

Type: Update

New Version of Cold War Strategy Game Includes Fixes and Enhancements Matrix Games today announced the release of a new official update for their grand tactical war game, Flashpoint Germany. The new version 1.02 is now available from the Matrix Games website.

Flashpoint Germany occurs at the height of the cold war.  The historical outcome we know hasn’t happened yet and this time things will end differently.  This time, with the world at the brink of World War III and the Soviet Union in a state of near collapse, the decision to seek a military solution was made.  Square off as either the Warsaw Pact or the NATO alliance in this war to end all wars!

This new update adds new AI enhancements, improved off-map counterbattery fire, expanded equipment-specific unit silhouettes, a new map rendering system and other new features.  In addition, virtually all reported issues since the previous v1.01 update have been addressed, including an occasional crash, a few interface glitches, PBEM corrections and some map overlay issues.

Flashpoint Germany spans 17 different scenarios and comes complete with a scenario editor, order of battle guide and equipment database.  Additionally, players can play online, by e-mail, or against a competitive computer opponent.  Each battle map is a detailed representation of the German landscape, representing the actual terrain that would have influenced battles throughout West Germany.

China’s political elites are seeing the chance to fulfill their ambitions of a Chinese sphere of influence over the Pacific, and even if the United States are refocusing their military efforts in a revamped War on Terror, they haven’t left their interests in the region unprotected.

Now the question is not when, but who will be the first to strike.
