Specifically, this latest update release will add spectator support to players who have been eliminated in multiplayer in addition to substantially improved targeting calculations to be even more realistic. Also, the latest update includes a number of new hotkeys to speed up navigating Harpoon 3’s interface and issuing commands. Full details on the large variety of improvements that come with this incremental update are available from the file’s readme.
David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “Harpoon 3 provides the most accurate naval simulation available to the public while still presenting accessible and engaging gameplay. This latest update is yet another improvement towards striking the delicate balance between the realism our gamers want and the fun gameplay they deserve.”
Harpoon 3 is the culmination of decades of development and fan support, resulting in the most comprehensive, realistic, and accurate simulation of modern combined air and naval operations available to the gaming public. Harpoon 3 gives the player an opportunity to manage some of the most advanced air and naval assets available in the world, putting them in the middle of many historical and ‘what if’ scenarios. Players will have the chance to battle it out against a variet of enemies using technology from all of the premier naval powers of the day: Iranian Revolutionary Guard in the Persian Gulf, re-live Operation El Dorado Canyon, strike at the heart of Libya, guard the Greenland-Iceland-UK gap to stop a Soviet naval invasion of the Atlantic, or stalk unwary U.S. shipping in a Soviet Akula-class submarine.
