Back to News Listing A New Update Ships Out for Harpoon 3

Posted: Wednesday, May 30, 2007 by Matrix Support

Type: Update

The longstanding naval warfare simulator is now vastly improved with new features and even more stability

Matrix Games and Advanced Gaming Systems (www.advancedgaming.biz) are excited to announce the release of the latest update for their venerable naval warfare sim, Harpoon 3: Advanced Naval Warfare. Having gone through multiple iterations and improvements over the years, this latest incremental update brings dozens of changes and improvements in addition to multiple new features. These new features will please gamers with an even more streamlined game interface and further tweaked and improved gameplay, reinforcing Harpoon 3’s already impressive level of realism.

Specifically, this latest update release will add spectator support to players who have been eliminated in multiplayer in addition to substantially improved targeting calculations to be even more realistic. Also, the latest update includes a number of new hotkeys to speed up navigating Harpoon 3’s interface and issuing commands. Full details on the large variety of improvements that come with this incremental update are available from the file’s readme.

 

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “Harpoon 3 provides the most accurate naval simulation available to the public while still presenting accessible and engaging gameplay. This latest update is yet another improvement towards striking the delicate balance between the realism our gamers want and the fun gameplay they deserve.”

 

Harpoon 3 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 variet 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.

Buzz Aldrin’s Space Program Manager gets release date.

"But why, some say, the Moon? Why choose this as our goal? And they may well ask, why climb the highest mountain? Why, 35 years ago, fly the Atlantic? " - US President John F. Kennedy ; 1962.

On July 20th 1969, the Apollo 11 mission successfully landed. For the first time in history, human beings walked on the Moon. The conquest of space that had started a few years after the end of WWII reached its climax with a manned lunar landing. In competition with the USSR, the US gained a decisive advantage when images of Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and their lunar exploration module were broadcast on live TV all over the world from the Sea of Tranquillity. President Kennedy won his historic gamble by landing a man on the Moon and returning him safely to the Earth before the end of the decade. A whole new era of space conquests was opened…
