Type: Press Release

 

A major update in preparation for a new expansion release

Matrix Games (www.matrixgames.com), Slitherine (www.slitherine.com), and 2by3 Games (www.2by3games.com) are proud to release a comprehensive 1.06.04 update for their acclaimed WWII strategy mega game, Gary Grigsby’s War in the East. This massive free update includes hundreds of improvements to gameplay, including a more challenging AI, improved game balance, improved aircraft data, interface improvements, an improved scenario editor and a new editor manual and a new small scenario on the Demyansk Pocket. 

 

This is all in preparation for the release later this week of the first War in the East expansion, Don to the Danube, which comes with a wide array of later war scenarios ranging from short but intense 6 turn bouts like the Battle for Kharkov (1942) to immense 37-turn engagements taking place across multiple nations like Drama on the Danube (Summer 1944 – Spring 1945). The development of Don to the Danube helped inspire the new features and improvements in the 1.06.04 update, which is available free to all owners of Gary Grigsby’s War in the East.

 

Erik Rutins, Director of Product Development at Matrix Games, said “War in the East has won award after award since its release slightly more than a year ago.  In addition to two CSR Awards, it won praise from respected critics at Quarter to Three who stated War in the East was ‘Almost certainly the most important wargame to come out in the past ten years.  The 2by3 Games team has gone above and beyond in delivering another major update with significant improvements free to the community and the new Don to the Danube expansion is on the way later this week!”

 

Gary Grigsby’s War in the East: The German-Soviet War 1941-1945 is the spiritual heir to the great Eastern Front board and computer wargames of the past; a turn-based World War II strategy game down to the division and brigade level, stretching across the entire Eastern Front at a 10 mile per hex scale. Gamers can engage in massive, dramatic campaigns, including intense battles involving thousands of units with realistic and historical terrain, weather, orders of battle, logistics and combat results.  As with all the award-winning titles made by the 2by3 Games team, factors such as supply, fatigue, experience, morale and the skill of your divisional, corps and army leaders all play an important part in determining the results at the front line.Gary Grigsby’s War in the East comes with 4 massive campaigns as well as many smaller scenarios all with different strategic and operational challenges.

 

Gary Grigsby’s War in the East represents a truly epic representation of the Second World War on the Eastern Front and is unparalleled in its scale, detail, and ambition!

 

Get the update here. The update is comprehensive and will bring all versions of War in the East to 1.06.04. Get more information on Gary Grigsby’s War in the East from its official product page.
