Back to News Listing Storm over the Pacific Now Available

Posted: Tuesday, June 15, 2010 by Sean Drummy

Type: Press Release

Plus a boatload of screenshots and an at-release update for physical copies!

Matrix Games, Slitherine Strategies (www.slitherine.com) and Wastelands Interactive (www.wastelands-interactive.com) are pleased to release Storm over the Pacific!  This new and accessible Pacific Theater strategy game from the developers of WW2: Time of Wrath is aimed at strategy and wargamers who want to play smaller Pacific scenarios or the whole Pacific campaign in a weekend.

 

Additionally, customers who purchase the physical version of the game should also note that there is an at-release v1.01 update available for download. This will bring the game to the same version as the digital download copy, which is already updated to v1.01.

 

Last, but not least, be sure to check out the new 30+ screenshots showing off nearly every aspect of play in Storm over the Pacific!

 

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “Storm over the Pacific portrays the massive conflict that was the Pacific Theater of World War II. This one is not “grognards only”, but is at a scale and detail that makes it accessible to wider range of gamers.  Wargamers who have played WW2: Time of Wrath will know that Wastelands Interactive specializes in making ambitious and detailed strategy games that are also fairly straightforward to play.  That makes for a pretty addictive package, gameplay-wise.  Add in a full editor and good support for modding and this is a one-two punch that is tough to turn down!”

 

The creators of WW2: Time of Wrath move to the Pacific theater with Storm over the Pacific. Depicting the epic conflict between Japan and the United States, players choose from 26 available countries with historically accurate orders of battle including land, sea and air units and leaders. Concentrate on directing one country or command several to lead an alliance of nations. Engage in battle over the vast expanse of the Pacific with 16 unit types modeled with an intuitive supply system and governed by realistic and historically accurate weather patterns.

 

Behind the front lines, players can also manage alliances, monitor economic conditions, and research new technologies. With shrewd management of research resources, players may even embark on a dramatic race to develop Atomic weapons and turn the tide of the war! Even the best laid plans may still falter, though, as hundreds of historical events may occur throughout a campaign, adding the element of surprise and unpredictability that is so commonly found in war.

 

Storm over the Pacific also sports a configurable user interface that allows you to freely arrange the information and orders panes on the screen. With this sort of freedom, commanding armies and managing nations is easier than ever! Create your own intuitive interface suited to your play style so you can concentrate on plotting to defeat your enemies!

Command LIVE Spratly Spat is out!

Tuesday, September 20, 2016

The dispute over the Spratly Islands in the South China Sea has reached a turning point.

China has never hidden her intent to extend her power in the region, both diplomatically and militarily. And the nearby countries have always tried to do the same, in temporary coalitions or alone. The United States, despite their interest in countering the Chinese’s ambitions, have been involved too much in the Middle East to be able to have a strong presence in these waters.
