Back to News Listing War in the Pacific Ė Admiralís Edition Gets a Major Update!

Posted: Thursday, July 22, 2010 by Sean Drummy

Type: Press Release

Another major update is headed for hard drives at flank speed!

Matrix Games and Henderson Field Designs are proud to release a significant new update for their award winning WWII Pacific Theatre mega game, War in the Pacific Ė Admiralís Edition! The new comprehensive 1.01.06g update comes with 80 fixes and improvement, including the ability to show all patrol zones and gameplay balance and realism improvements to naval bombardments and flak.

 

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said ďUnparalleled in its realism and scope, War in the Pacific Ė Admiralís Edition is a must-have for any Pacific Theatre buff. This is the fourth official update since the release of Admiralís Edition and the fixes and tweaks here continue to polish and hone the gameplay based on feedback from the community to guarantee years of future enjoyment.Ē

 

War in the Pacific: Admiralís 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: Admiralís Edition is a stand-alone release which does not require ownership of War in the Pacific.  The Admiralís 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 Admiralís 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 Ė Admiralís 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 Ė Admiralís Edition to version 1.01.06g. Matrix Games recommends that all owners of War in the Pacific Ė Admiralís Edition update to this version.
