Staten Island, NY, June 10th, 2005 - Matrix Games (www.matrixgames.com) today announced the release of a major new official update for their grand tactical war game of modern combat, Flashpoint Germany. The new version 1.03 is now available from the Matrix Games website.
Flashpoint Germany occurs at the height of the cold war. The historical outcome we know hasn't happened yet and this time things will end differently. This time, with the world at the brink of World War III and the Soviet Union in a state of near collapse, the decision to seek a military solution was made. Square off as either the Warsaw Pact or the NATO alliance in this war to end all wars!
This new update includes over forty enhancements to the AI, new sudden death options and rules, improved artillery supply calculations, many map visualization improvements including new overlays, new movement path and fire arrows, a main screen victory bar, improved reporting and faster animations. Over a dozen additional bug fixes make this the definitive new version of Flashpoint Germany.
Matrix Games recommends that all owners of Flashpoint Germany download and install this new version.
Flashpoint Germany spans 17 different scenarios and comes complete with a scenario editor, order of battle guide and equipment database. Additionally, players can play online, by e-mail, or against a competitive computer opponent. Each battle map is a detailed representation of the German landscape, representing the actual terrain that would have influenced battles throughout West Germany.
