Back to News Listing War in the Pacific – Admiral’s Edition Gets a Major Update!

Posted: Wednesday, March 3, 2010 by Sean Drummy

Type: Press Release

New variable resolution complete with widescreen support and so much more!

Matrix Games and Henderson Field Designs are proud to release a major new update for their award winning WWII Pacific Theatre mega game, War in the Pacific – Admiral’s Edition! The new comprehensive 1.01.02a update comes with heaps of changes, fixes, and improvements including support for variable resolutions and even widescreen support. Gone are the days of 1024x768 – you can now see as much of the gorgeous map as your monitor will allow! Other changes include adjustments to anti-sub warfare and torpedo effectiveness, many interface improvements, gameplay improvements galore, and much more – well over 100 changes, fixes and improvements.

 

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “Unparalleled in its realism and scope, War in the Pacific – Admiral’s Edition is a must-have for any Pacific Theatre buff. This new update, the third official update since its release, ensures that War in the Pacific – Admiral’s Edition will continue to remain on many hard drives for years to come!”

 

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.

 

The individual features and improvements to Admiral’s Edition are far too numerous to mention in total in this announcement, but the product page link below 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!

 

War in the Pacific – Admiral’s Edition is a standalone release and does not require War in the Pacific to install and play.

 

This update is comprehensive and will bring all previous versions of War in the Pacific – Admiral’s Edition to version 1.01.02a. Matrix Games recommends that all owners of War in the Pacific – Admiral’s Edition update to this version.

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.
