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.

To End All Wars and Commander: The Great War 50% Discounted!

Tuesday, March 21, 2017

The 1918 Kaiserschlacht (or Spring Offensive) was the last attempt by the German High Command to make a breakthrough in the Western Front.

On the 21st  of March 1918, a series of attacks along the front line held by the British Fifth and Third Army began. Strengthened by divisions coming from the Eastern Front and with an extended use of troops trained in infiltration and assault tactics (Stormtroopers), the Germans were able to achieve the largest territory advance of the war.

However, this all-out offensive didn’t gain a decisive victory. The Germans lost irreplaceable veteran troops and the conquest of the new territories resulted in hard to defend positions with a supply line that was stretched too far.
