Staten Island, NY, Feb 15th, 2005 - Matrix Games (www.matrixgames.com) and 2 by 3 Games (www.2by3games.com) are very excited to release the final update for Uncommon Valor, which adds a few new elements found in the 'sequel' game War in the Pacific and fixes a few issues reported since the last update.
The changes in Uncommon Valor include seven bug fixes, mostly rare problems in combat formulas such as high altitude bombardment being too accurate. Also, however, they have added four new features to the game. Patrol crafts and minefields were both adjusted to emulate the routines used in War in the Pacific while two other changes make groups of submarines easier to spot and stop subs from following units into known minefields. The patch is available from the Matrix Games website at www.matrixgames.com.
Uncommon Valor features campaign scenarios in the South Pacific during 1942 and 1943. With incredible detail and accuracy and near infinite micro-management Uncommon Valor is one of the most robust strategy games produced by 2 By 3 Games. Uncommon Valor also features an editor for units and scenarios for endless replay against an intelligent AI or against other live opponents via PBEM.
