Back to News Listing War in the Pacific: Admiral's Edition Manual Preview

Posted: Wednesday, June 10, 2009 by Erik Rutins

Type: News

Anticipation has been reaching new heights with the approaching release of War in the Pacific: Admiral's Edition.  This sequel to War in the Pacific will require ownership of the original and is aimed at the veteran wargamers who have been enjoying War in the Pacific and asking for more.  Among the many things fans are looking forward to is the full color 330 page printed manual that will be included in the first official "Collector's Edition" release here at Matrix Games.  This is the largest, most comprehensive manual we've released and the first one of this size to be printed in full color.  As a special preview for those who are already familiar with War in the Pacific and as thanks for their patience during the development process, we are making available a series of excerpts from the final manual - in total a whopping 75 pages of new information (still just a fraction of the actual manual though!).

We hope this helps fans of War in the Pacific prepare for the new features and changes in Admiral's Edition and also makes the waiting a bit easier.

Please note that the preview manual has been compressed to make the download size manageable, with the unfortunate result that some of the screenshots look a bit blurry.  The screenshots in the actual PDF manual and the printed manual are crisp and clear.

Strategic Command Beta AAR: First Moves

Thursday, July 28, 2016

Welcome to the first Beta-AAR of Strategic Command WWII: War in Europe.  This is a mini AAR, and as such, the AAR will only cover the inital shots in Gleiwitz Poland in September of 1939, to the fall of France in mid 1940.   Since the game is still in Beta, there might be some changes of the material covered between now and the final release, but the game already feels complete and the development team assures me that they don’t expect much to change other than minor items to ensure any final polish and balance to the main campaign.

Players familiar with the Strategic Command series will immediately notice the much bigger map. In the north, the passage around Norway to Archangelsk is ready for sub warfare, and in the south, a large part of Africa has been modeled as well.

Command LIVE: You Brexit, You Fix it!

Tuesday, July 26, 2016

Is there anything that seems more crucial in recent European history than the possibility of Great Britain leaving the European Union?

Probably not, because it’s really too early to say what the likely outcomes are for the near future. Nevertheless, many military observers seem pretty much convinced that this event could make NATO, the main western collective defensive system, weaker and less effective: What if other countries decide to follow the British example and like in a domino effect, the internal cohesion and cooperation of the European nations is diminished as a consequence?

We are really proud of this first episode and of the project as a whole.

It’s the first time a detailed simulation takes on real life events to create such detailed fictional, but true-to-life scenarios.
