Staten Island, NY, August 21st, 2008 - Matrix Games (www.matrixgames.com) and IQ Software (www.worldwar2.pl) are thrilled to announce the release of the first official update for the new release World War II: Road to Victory. The new comprehensive update file will bring the version of the game up to 1.201 and comes with dozens of bug fixes and a handful of new features, including PBEM play. This is a major update for World War II: Road to Victory and it concentrates on addressing all reported serious issues with the initial release of the game to smooth out gameplay and assure the best possible experience while conquering Europe!

With the 1.201 resolving most major issues, the IQ Software team is hard at work putting new enhancements, features, and improvements into the game so
stay tuned for subsequent updates because there is much more to come. This is not to say that the first update is without its share of enhancements and new features! The AI's garrisoning protocol is improved along with a tweak to make the AI better at sea transporting. New features include PBEM support for up to 8 players, a new "siege" function and rule set for surrounded cities, new sea zones, Lend-Lease events, the addition of Malta as a
territory, and much more!

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said "The IQ Software team has been very responsive in working to improve the gameplay and overall experience in World War II: Road to Victory. This first update brings a healthy list of improvements and exciting new features but this is only the beginning!"
