Back to News Listing War in the Pacific: Admiral’s Edition Updated!

Posted: Tuesday, September 15, 2009 by Sean Drummy

Type: Press Release

The first official v1.00.84 update for the WWII Pacific monster strategy game is now available!

Matrix Games, 2by3 Games (www.2by3games.com) and Henderson Field Designs are pleased to announce that the first official update for War in the Pacific: Admiral’s Edition, the sequel to the legendary War in the Pacific, is now available.  This v1.00.84 update includes over 200 changes, fixes and improvements to the original release. 


Please note, a new v1.00.84e Hot Fix is now also available to install on top of the v1.00.84 official update.

 

Of particular note are a set of new configuration switches to better support the newest dual and quad core processors, as well as four new scenarios (including “Quiet China” variants), interface improvements and improvements to surface combat and pilot training as well as other areas of gameplay.  Most of these improvements and fixes can be applied to existing games in progress simply by loading the saved game and continuing play.  The full set of changes is documented in detail in the included update readme file.

 

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “Henderson Field Designs have put together a quality update in a little over a month since release that addresses the issues reported as well as making a number of great improvements.  War in the Pacific: Admiral’s Edition delivers quality and immersive gameplay at a level of detail and realism you can’t get anywhere else and it just got better!”

 

War in the Pacific: Admiral’s Edition is the result of many additional man-years of development from a dedicated and experienced team including subject matter experts and experienced programmers.  This has resulted in an improved War in the Pacific experience across the board. This is the entire War in the Pacific down to individual aircraft, vehicles, ships, guns and squads - more than just a game, it's an encyclopedia of the war compiled from many sources to an unmatched level of detail. Add in a much improved AI and more secure PBEM play and you have the makings of a new classic!

 

War in the Pacific: Admiral’s Edition is a stand-alone release which does not require ownership of War in the Pacific.  The Admiral’s Edition installation process will not overwrite original War in the Pacific files, but instead the expansion installs along side the original installation of the game and runs as a separate game.

 

Owners of War in the Pacific are still entitled to a limited time $20 discount on War in the Pacific: Admiral’s Edition.  This offer will expire three months after the release date of Admiral’s Edition.   To get your discount, you will need your original War in the Pacific serial number.  You can trade it in for discount code at this link: http://www.matrixgames.com/discount/witp.asp .  Note that each serial number is good for one discount code and once the code is retrieved, the serial number is considered used.  So read the instructions on the discount code page carefully and don’t lose your code!  We encourage all War in the Pacific owners to take advantage of this discount while it lasts.

 

The ”Victory at Sea Sale” is also continuing for three months after the Admiral’s Edition release date and offers the following discounts: War in the Pacific is $20 off the normal price ($49.99 instead of $69.99), Uncommon Valor is $10 off the normal price ($19.99 instead of $29.99) and War Plan Orange is $10 off the normal price ($34.99 instead of $44.99).  Whether you’re looking to complete your collection or you’re a new wargamer trying to get your feet wet before jumping into the Admiral’s Edition, there’s never been a better time to pick up these releases!

 

The individual features and improvements to Admiral’s Edition are far too numerous to mention in total in this announcement, but the product page goes into enough detail to please any War in the Pacific fan.

 

As our first "Collector's Edition", the boxed version also comes with a Full Color Printed 330 page manual!

Command: Chains of War is Released!

Thursday, May 18, 2017

It’s 2018, the near future and the World is on the verge of a Third World War.

Tensions in the Korean peninsula region are erupting on a scale rarely seen before. Many countries have pursued particularly muscular policies in recent years, hardening a situation, ready to light the fuse at any moment.

China’s political elites are seeing the chance to fulfill their ambitions of a Chinese sphere of influence over the Pacific, and even if the United States are refocusing their military efforts in a revamped War on Terror, they haven’t left their interests in the region unprotected.

Now the question is not when, but who will be the first to strike.
