Back to News Listing Gary Grigsbys World at War: A World Divided is Updated

Posted: Wednesday, March 9, 2011 by Sean Drummy

Type: Press Release

A new scenario, some rule changes, and even some new features coming this way!

Matrix Games and 2by3 Games (www.2by3games.com) are proud to announce the release of the comprehensive 1.040 update for their awarding-winning WWII grand strategy game, Gary Grigsby’s World at War: A World Divided. The update comes with the usual bug fixes, some increases to moddability including a file structure overhaul, new features like widely variable screen resolution options (all the way up to 6400x4800!), rule changes, a new scenario, and more.

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said, “Critics and gamers agree, 2by3 Games knows how to make world class World War II strategy games – and World at War: A World Divided is certainly no exception. Even several years after its release, this grand strategy gem continues to grow and improve!”

Gary Grigsby’s World at War: a World Dividedbrings you to back to the dawn of the greatest and most terrible war the world has ever seen. The forces of the Axis, including Germany, Japan and Italy, face the might of France, Great Britain, the United States, China and the Soviet Union in the epic struggle of World War II. Starting with the blitzkrieg attack on Poland, the course of the war is determined by your actions as the leader of one or more major factions, opposed by human or computer players. A World Divided takes this conflict one step further, with a future what-if scenario that occurs right at the end of the war. Allowing players to go continuously from the end of their game into this new scenario, Russia’s land army powerhouse and consolidated position squares off against the Western Allies naval and air superiority, and who’s territory is massive, yet less easily defended.

At your disposal are the full air, land and sea forces of each power, A World Divided now features spies and signals intelligence as well, capable of stealing technology and other information on the enemy, and providing an upper hand in combat situations. Each unit can be upgraded in a variety of researchable areas. Build more tank divisions, improve your fighter planes or focus on strategic bombardment – the choice is yours. More expensive units take longer to build and shortages in industry, resources or manpower can play havoc with your plans. Take command in this dynamic, turn-based strategy game of World War II that puts you in the role of some of the most legendary leaders of history. Four tutorials, three campaigns and five scenarios let you learn the system quickly and start fighting the whole war and beyond. Make it happen in Gary Grigsby’s World at War: A World Divided!

Get the update here. The update is comprehensive and will bring all previous versions of Gary Grigsby’s World at War: A World Divided to version 1.040. Get more information on Gary Grigsby’s World at War: A World Divided from its official product page.

Aggressors Dev Diary #9 - Infrastructure

Friday, August 17, 2018

We have already covered most of the main game mechanics and features yet there is still one big question we want to discuss today. How to build up your empire and what to do in time of peace in Aggressors?
 
It might seem that antiquity was all about wars and conflicts, but people of those times mostly wanted to live in peace and prosperity like anyone else. Emperors might have had great ambitions and pushed the boundaries of their empires still further but at the same time they had to maintain and improve the state infrastructure to keep ahead of other nations.

Battlestar Galactica Deadlock - Dev Diary #9 'Evasive Action'

Monday, August 13, 2018

It’s quieter than you’d think. Even in the middle of the worst furball.

“Open racks and engage.”

No one else does what we do, out here in the quiet. One single pressure lock between life and a violent, cold, improbable death.

“Thrusters nominal. RCS is green. I'm good to go.”

Look at those big motherfrakkers. Debris means nothing to them. That armor could take a hundred salvos of heavy ordnance. Frak, on a bad day they’ll spill their tea after taking a nuke on the chin.

“Turkey right four lower three. I'm committing.”

In our world, one stray slug is all it takes.

“Tin can on my tail, take it down take it down!”

The difference between hearing your name whispered one more time, or never again.

“Krypter, krypter, krypter! I’m winged! Krypter, krypt--“

Aggressors Dev Diary #8 - Trade Routes

Friday, August 10, 2018

One of the things which was pretty difficult to implement in Aggressors was the way the game handles resources.

Initially, the number and types of resources were hardcoded in the game's core and the only thing which could be changed (or modded) was the amount required for certain actions.

Field of Glory II Rise of Persia New DLC is coming! Dont miss the Twitch Preview!

"The Assyrian came down like the wolf on the fold, / And his cohorts were gleaming in purple and gold;

And the sheen of their spears was like stars on the sea, / When the blue wave rolls nightly on deep Galilee." – Lord Byron

Ashurbanipal, Nebuchadnezzar II, Cyrus II ... these great kings are now covered with the dust of time, but the empires they created and the wars they fought shaped the Middle East irreversibly.

Here, in the cradle of civilization, the Assyrians ruled with an iron fist, until the Medes and Babylonians rose against them and ended their reign of terror. The Babylonians then repeated the cruelties of the Assyrians, razing the Temple of Jerusalem and deporting the Hebrews to Babylon.
