Type: Press Release

A special demo with the US Naval Institute is now being put to sea

The US Naval Institute, a forum for independent thought since 1873, Advanced Gaming System, award winning developer of the computer Harpoon series, and Matrix Games/Slitherine, the largest independent war and strategy game publisher, are pleased to announce a special demo version of AGSI's Harpoon - Commander's Edition designed for those who are interested in modern air/naval wargaming but haven't had an opportunity to try their hand.

This demo version features five scenarios highlighting the US actions in Libya in 1986, Attain Document III and El Dorado Canyon. This special bundle also includes a special quick start guide and two YouTube videos showing how to install the game and a quick walk through of the scenarios.

The special demo version is only available from this joint USNI-AGSI page.

Larry Bond's Harpoon – Commander’s Editionis an exciting 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.

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.
