Back to News Listing Gary Grigsby’s World at War: A World Divided Released

Matrix Games (www.matrixgames.com) and 2by3 Games (www.2by3games.com) are proud to announced the sequel to the acclaimed Gary Grisby’s World at War is now available. As a special promotional offer, owners of the original Gary Grigsby’s World At War can save 35% off the regular price. If you’re a previous owner go to http://www.matrixgames.com/discount/ggwaw-aworlddivided.asp to enable your discount.

David Heath, CEO of Matrix Games said “2by3 Games represents the old school game design and development and once more proves it here. The new features and enhancements provides players with many new levels of game play and strategies.”

This new sequel, Gary Grigsby’s World At War: A World Divided, adds a host of new features to grow the engine well beyond the original game in terms of grand strategy. A World Divided includes spies, neutral country diplomacy, variable political events, unit experience and scenarios that occur after the war as well as starting earlier than the original.

The original game was recently awarded the 2006 Origins Vanguard Unique Game of the Year Award, following an IGN Game of the Year and Editors’ Choice Award. The focus of the series places players at the helm of one of the five major nations during the Second World War. Managing supply lines, production, troop movement, and resources, it has a simple and elegant design with variable levels of difficulty and detail.

Gary Grigsby’s World at War: A World Divided takes this design to the next level, adding espionage, code-breaking, variable political events, unit experience and neutral country diplomacy. These changes vastly affect the dynamics of play and add entire new layers to the grand strategy mix of the original. Players will have to learn to be more flexible with their tactics, facing more important decisions on these new fronts.

In addition to the new features in Gary Grigsby’s World At War: A World Divided is a completely new ‘what-if’ scenario that carries forward from the end of the war into a conflict between the Western Allies and the Soviet Union. Russia’s massive and experienced army is up against the West’s well equipped forces and industrial might. In addition to simply starting with this scenario, players have the option to jump right from the end of their normal campaign game of WWII into this alternate history. This creates a whole new set of strategic choices as players will have to think into the future and plan for their war against the other super-power while still fending off the Axis forces.

The overall ease of play is retained in Gary Grigsby’s World at War: A World Divided. The game ships with four tutorials, three campaigns, and five different scenarios starting from 1939 and the invasion of Poland and extending into the mid 1940s.

Look at this ongoing AAR being published on https://forums.spacebattles.com/!

“Our story begins on the Korean peninsula, site of the last American-Chinese war. The North Koreans are famous for their aggressive posture, so you might expect them to be shooting first. You'd be right, too - if the South Korean administration, determined not to be embarrassed by another Cheonan or Yeonpyeong island incident, wasn't ready to beat them to the punch!”
