Back to News Listing Storm over the Pacific Is Updated

Posted: Tuesday, June 29, 2010 by Sean Drummy

Type: Press Release

Some new events, map improvements, and some AI tweaks complement this popular new release

Matrix Games, Slitherine Strategies (www.slitherine.com) and Wastelands Interactive (www.wastelands-interactive.com) are pleased to release the comprehensive 1.02 update for their newly released Pacific theater strategy game Storm over the Pacific! The update includes a handful of new events, corrected OOBs and maps, and several AI improvements with particular attention to improving the use of naval power in the defense of coastlines and in securing Guadalcanal. The update also corrects a bug for disappearing units in the China 1941 campaign, a few CTD issues, and some other bugs.

 

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “Storm over the Pacific provides an accessible yet historically engaging strategic experience of the Pacific Theater during World War II. While Storm over the Pacific does not come with exhaustive detail, it’s so easy to pick up and play that armchair generals can wage the entire Pacific campaign in a weekend!”

 

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!

 

Get the update here. The update is comprehensive and will bring all previous version of Storm over the Pacific to 1.02.

Tuesday, January 10, 2017

On July 1943, the German war machine had the chance to deal a mortal blow to the Red Army. After the defeat at Stalingrad, it was necessary to regain the initiative and secure the Eastern front. For this purpose, the German High Command massed a huge quantity of Panthers and Tigers tanks in proximity of the Kursk salient, hoping to destroy the bulk of the Russian forces in this area.

But the Soviets, knowing in advance the Hitler’s plan, created over 190 miles of depth defense to stop the Panzerwaffe and they moved their armored forces in reserve for the counter-attack.

The largest tank battle of the entire Second World War was about to commence…
