Back to News Listing Harpoon - Commander's Edition Is Updated

Posted: Tuesday, March 08, 2011 by Sean Drummy

Type: Press Release

A hefty new update to bring the Commander’s Edition up to Ultimate Edition caliber

Matrix Games and Advanced Gaming Systems (www.advancedgaming.biz) are pleased to release the comprehensive 2009.050 update for their classic naval warfare simulator, Harpoon – Commander’s Edition. The update polishes the Commander’s Edition to play more like the Ultimate Edition with AI improvements, additional features for the scenario editor, database updates, and many other changes and bug fixes.  This will be the final planned update for the separate Commander’s Edition, which will continue as part of the Ultimate Edition package.

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said, “As part of our commitment to making the rich and growing Harpoon community all it can be, we are proud to give existing owners of Harpoon – Commander’s Edition many of the same benefits and improvements found in the Ultimate Edition of the game.”

Larry Bond's Harpoon – Commander’s Editionis the latest addition to the longstanding naval warfare simulation series that has brought awards and accolades from naval strategy fans and military personnel alike. Like its predecessors, Harpoon – Commander’s Edition allows players to assume the role of a fleet commander, making the same type of decisions he has to make, using the same type and quality of information he might expect to get in wartime. As players take to the seas and command a huge variety of ships in an equally as varied choice of theaters and historical conflicts, naval officers and naval strategy fans alike will revel the depth and richness of Larry Bond's Harpoon – Commander’s Edition. Experience realistic gameplay with all new features, art, and more! Choosing from an accurate and editable database of platforms, weapons, and sensors, players can fight one of 269 provided scenarios covering the height of the Cold War to Pirates in Malaysia, or use the provided editors to create their own.

Larry Bond's Harpoon - Commander’s Editionis the newest in a series of computer adaptations of the award-winning Harpoon wargame system that served as a reference to Tom Clancy’s The Hunt for Red October, Clancy/Bond’s Red Storm Rising, and Bond’s Red Phoenix. Harpoon has shocked naval professionals, entertained the public, and educated everyone, since 1989. Harpoon is so accurate an earlier edition was the first (and only) software ever sold by the US Naval Institute. Harpoon strikes the perfect balance of accuracy, playability, and accessibility.

Get the update here. More information on Harpoon – Commander’s Edition can be found  at the product page of the newer and highly enhanced Harpoon compilation, Harpoon – Ultimate Edition.

Since the release of Pandora: First Contact in late 2013, developers from Proxy Studios have been carefully collecting players’ feedback and thinking about the pros and cons that were highlighted by the community. At the core of this debate were requests about the diversity in this 4X sci-fi game, and the richness of the diplomatic relations between the factions. As a result the team has been working hard to make the game deeper and released several patches and a free expansion – Return of Messari – that went in this direction, and brought brand new content with a game changer that ensured fun and challenge for the late game.

“This war, like the next war, is a war to end war.” (David Lloyd George – UK Prime Minister)
