Type: Press Release

Performance optimization, bug fixes, and more bring the engines to full throttle!

Matrix Games is pleased to announce the release of the comprehensive 1.02 update for Gary Grigsby’s Eagle Day to Bombing of the Reich. The update includes some dual/quad global core performance options which can greatly improve performance on many machines, a new drawing method for target and aircraft highlights that also increases system performance, and a host of other fixes and tweaks.

 

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “Eagle Day to Bombing of the Reich boasts a vibrant community and given its fantastic gameplay, it’s no wonder why. This update is another step in polishing and improving Eagle Day to Bombing the Reich, with a lot of focus given to ironing out the last remaining performance and compatibility issues on modern systems.”

 

Gary Grigsby’s Eagle Day to Bombing of the Reich is a detailed simulation of the Allied strategic bombing campaign against Germany in World War II. Combining both classic titles Battle of Britain and Twelve O'Clock High into a single updated game package, this in depth air war simulation includes all the original appeal of the original two titles with a huge list of new features and improvements.

 

Gary Grigsby’s Eagle Day to Bombing of the Reich comes packed with AI improvements, new aircraft types, units, and locations, a massive pilot database with over 18,000 pilots, and much more. Players can also enjoy new nationalities like Axis co-belligerents, the USSR, and Brazil. In addition, fans of the immense detail of these classic strategy games will find richer detail across the entire game with more data tracked and displayed.  Statistics like ground kills by pilot and unit, pilot and aircraft losses by unit, pilot loss date and more are now at the player’s fingertips!

 

Stop the Eagle Day directive in its tracks and spearhead the Bombing of the Reich!

 

Get the update here. This update is comprehensive and will bring all previous versions to 1.02.
