Staten Island, NY, November 3rd, 2004 - Matrix Games and 2 by 3 Games (www.2by3games.com) are pleased to announce the release of the third post-release update for the acclaimed War In The Pacific.
This update includes a large list of fixes and improvements, ranging from a final fix for some reported sound issues to many AI opponent enhancements and a reduction in the effectiveness of PT boats. Over sixty fixes and new features to the game system combine with 115 data fixes and updates to make this a must have patch for every War In The Pacific player.
The v1.30 update is available online as a comprehensive update for all previous versions as well as a smaller incremental update for owners of War In The Pacific who already updated to v1.21 and are experiencing no sound issues.
Based on the highly acclaimed Uncommon Valor design, War In the Pacific is a completely new and massive undertaking that is considered the latest masterpiece from the veteran team at 2 by 3 Games, which includes Gary Grigsby, Keith Brors and Joel Billings.
The scale of War in the Pacific: The Struggle Against Japan 1941-1945 is 60 miles per hex and losses are individual vehicles, aircraft, guns and squads. Since half the planet Earth is covered by the titanic Pacific struggle, the game is massive in scope, covering thousands of ships tens of thousands of aircraft. Virtually every ship, air group and battalion sized or larger troop formation is covered in exacting detail.
