Back to News Listing Hornet Leader PC Gets a Major Update!

Posted: Tuesday, January 15, 2008 by Matrix Support

Type: Update

New v1.2 update includes many improvements and fixes

Matrix Games and Dan Verssen Games (www.dvg.com) are pleased to announce that a major new update for Hornet Leader PC is now available. This second update for the popular turn-based tactical air combat simulator includes a display performance overhaul, multiple new player requested features and fixes all known issues.

Among the improvements is a switch to a DirectX-based display system to reduce interface lag, new on-map altitude change arrows, an Abort Mission button that is always available, random pilot selection and smarter bandit AI.

 

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “The Hornet Leader community has continued to give us great feedback and we’ve taken it to heart. Thanks to two months of additional development from Storm Cloud Creations and Dan Verssen Games, Hornet Leader PC is better than ever and coming your way.”


Dan Verssen of Dan Verssen Games added, “We hope our community members will appreciate this free update, which polishes Hornet Leader PC further and addresses many of the top player requests since the original release. We also hope players who may be interested in Hornet Leader PC but are still on the fence will take a look at these improvements and give it a try.”


In Hornet Leader PC, you command a squadron of the U.S. Navy’s elite F/A-18 Hornet Strike Fighters! You select the pilots and arm the aircraft based on real-world mission briefings. Once you reach your objective, you evaluate threats, and do what needs to be done to destroy the target!


Each pilot has his own set of unique skills and abilities. With each mission, a pilot’s skills increase, but so does his fatigue level. You must decide how hard to push your men as one of the many decisions that go into every mission. You will fly high intensity missions over Iraq, Libya, and North Korea from 1991 to 2007. Your weapon selection for each campaign is updated to accurately match the weapons available for that era.


We’ll see you in the pilots’ briefing room!


Get more information on Hornet Leader PC from its official Matrix Games webpage. This update will bring the version of the game up to 1.2 and is comprehensive.

The Sons of Cadia are coming!

Tuesday, September 26, 2017

The Red Waaagh seems unstoppable: Grukk Face-Rippa and his orks rampage through the Sanctus Reach system and planet after planet fall to the greenskins. Billions die, and there doesn’t seem to be an end to the xenos offensive. 

It is on the planet of Alaric Prime that Castellan Jakren Stein mounts his last stand. This proud son of Cadia knows that there won’t be no retreat, no surrender. It’ll be victory or death.

The men and women he leads are exceptional individuals, forged in the flames of war and ready for the ultimate sacrifice. They are brave soldiers, utterly loyal and fierce, and will obey any order without hesitation. They know that it’s only their bravery and valour that protect the light from the darkness. They are the first, last and often only line of defense of the Imperium. They are the Astra Militarum!
