Staten Island, NY, March 31st , 2005 - Matrix Games (www.matrixgames.com) and 2by3 Games (www.2by3games.com) announced today that Gary Grigsby's World at War is now available in retail stores in the US and Canada and available online via direct download from the Matrix Games online store.
Gary Grigsby's World at War takes the second world war and places you at the helm of one of five possible powers: The Western Allies, China, Russia, Germany, or Japan. Command your army and coordinate your attacks. Gain supplies, resources, and factories to fuel your war machine. Manage your supplies and supply lines to ensure you have the resources necessary to capture territories and press your attacks. Gary Grigsby's World at War has been hailed as an elegant and accessible game design with adjustable realism and detail; where the difficulty can be tailored to your specific level and your opponents range from a challenging computer AI to up to four other human players.
David Heath, Director of Operation at Matrix Games said, "The early previews and reviews are in: Gary Grigsby's World at War is another classic from the hall of fame design team at 2by3 Games. This is grand strategy with all the right elements – easy to learn but difficult to master and incredibly replayable and deep."
Gary Grigsby's World at War takes you through four World War II scenarios where five playable powers battle across thirty-eight different countries with fifteen different unit types. Each unit type has up to fourteen attributes, which you can upgrade through careful research of new technology during the war. The design covers everything from strategic movement to cold weather, nuclear weapons, special historical events and even managing supply lines in the advanced mode of the game. With a top-notch AI, Play-by-Email capability, and two in depth tutorials, World at War will make you a general in a day but keep you occupied year round.
The game will be available from retail stores in the US and Canada including Wal-Mart (Canada), Electronics Boutique, Gamestop, Staples, Bestbuy, Fry's, CompUSA, Circuit City, and more! Additionally the game is available from the Matrix Games website at www.matrixgames.com for download. Retail copies come boxed with a printed manual but are otherwise the same as the download version.
