Major New Addition to Harpoon Series Includes Multiplayer!

Matrix Games and Advanced Gaming Systems (www.advancedgaming.biz) are pleased to announce that Harpoon 3 Advanced Naval Warfare, the new multiplayer addition to the distinguished Harpoon modern air and naval strategy series, is scheduled for release this quarter via digital download and game on demand from the Matrix Games online store.

Harpoon 3 Advanced Naval Warfare is the result 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.  The new Multiplayer support raises the bar for the Harpoon series to a whole new level of immersion and gaming excitement!

 

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, stated, “We are privileged to have a chance to work on the Harpoon series and the great team at Advanced Gaming Systems that has worked hard to bring it to a whole new level.  If you’ve ever played or thought about playing Harpoon, this enhanced, fully upgraded releases are a must have for your game collection!”

 

Harpoon 3 Advanced Naval Warfare gives you the opportunity to manage some of the most advanced air and naval assets available in the world and puts you in the middle of many historical and ‘what if’ scenarios (including six multiplayer scenarios).  Battle Iranian Revolutionary Guard in the Persian Gulf – or to take the opportunity to re-live Operation El Dorado Canyon and strike at the heart of Libya.  Try your hand at guarding the Greenland-Iceland-U.K. Gap to stop a Soviet naval invasion of the Atlantic – or stalk unwary U.S. shipping in a Soviet Akula-class submarine.  The NATO versus Warsaw Pact conflict that never came to be serves as fertile wargaming ground to provide many chances to explore any eventuality.  You'll have the chance to play from either side, experiencing a wide variety of challenges.

 

Don Gilman, President of Advanced Gaming Systems, said, “Harpoon 3 Advanced Naval Warfare has been a while in the making, but we feel the result is well worth the time spent.  We’re excited to be working with a wargame-friendly publisher such as Matrix Games on this release and we are looking forward to the response from strategy and wargamers around the world!” 

 

Your control over your forces gives you the flexibility to manage air strike loadouts, determining what kind of weapons to place for the aircraft's upcoming mission.  Task force composition and layout can be determined, so specific ships can be set to anti-air, anti-submarine, or anti-surface warfare; you can set threat axes and guard against enemy incursions. You can even set sonar variables for surface ships and submarines alike, commanding their crews to sprint, drift and scan passively, sprint again, and scan with active sonar – all control over these aspects, and more, is completely up to you.

 

Harpoon 3 Advanced Naval Warfare also gives you access to other players over the Internet, allowing two to six players plus additional spectators to be engaged in a single game. When not shooting the seas up in multiplayer mode, a single player mode is available allowing you to access any one of the scenarios and fight against a savvy A.I. opponent that knows how to control and coordinate large and small forces alike.

 

Harpoon 3 Advanced Naval Warfare supports third party databases, two of which will be announced on the Matrix website on launch.  These are in addition to the updated Legacy database and the scenarios shipping with the game (giving you over 300 scenarios total).  Also included is a configuration and launcher system to allow for easy tuning of the many configuration options addressed by this sophisticated simulation. Additionally, for ultimate control over your gaming experience, Harpoon 3 Advanced Naval Warfare ships with the Scenario Editor, and features two database editors (to be shipped later).  These provide the tools to create your own fleets, weapons, and scenarios.
