Staten Island, NY, July 11th, 2006 - Matrix Games (www.matrixgames.com) and 2by3 Games (www.2by3games.com) today announced the release of a new update for their World War II grand strategy war game, Gary Grigsbyâ€™s World at War. The new version 1.202 is now available from the Matrix Games Website. It is a minor update that fixes a few minor issues with the major v1.20 update released earlier this year.
Three fixes are included in this update, resolving a possible combat animations crash, a replay problem and an issue with strategic airdrops. It is recommended that all players upgrade to v1.202. The v1.202 update is a comprehensive update and will work on all previous versions of Gary Grigsbyâ€™s World at War, whether US or International.
Gary Grigsbyâ€™s World at War takes place in 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 Grigsbyâ€™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.
Gary Grigsbyâ€™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. Gary Grigsbyâ€™s World at War will make you a general in a day but keep you occupied year round.
