Flash: War Plan Orange Updated!

New Version 1.205 Improves Realism and further improves AI

Staten Island , NY , July 20 th , 2006 Matrix Games (www.matrixgames.com) together with 2by3 Games (www.2by3games.com) and Justin Prince Designs are pleased to deliver a new v1.205 update for the popular new wargame War Plan Orange :  Dreadnoughts in the Pacific 1922 – 1930.    This update is now available from the Matrix Games public FTP and the game updates section of the Matrix Games website.

The v1.205 update focuses on adding more detail to the already extraordinarily accurate database of information.  A new ship type, the Armed Merchant Cruiser (AMC) has been added to the war replacing the anti-aircraft cruiser.  Depth Charges have been adjusted to reflect historical values making depth charge hits more lethal while US Subs are now equipped with at least a single AA Machinegun for their surface defense.  US Battleship combat range and fuel capacity has been adjusted to be more historically accurate, and thus the US Battleships have a much shorter range.  These updates coupled with a host of minor updates, ship refits, and overall improvements round out the list of 56 changes included in this patch.  Take control of your forces and execute War Plan Orange!

This new update is a comprehensive update, which will upgrade all previous versions of War Plan Orange to the v1.205 level.

Following World War I, The United States, fearing the worst, developed a system of plans for a potential war in the Pacific against Japan .  In the real world most of these plans never saw the light of day, but in War Plan Orange : Dreadnoughts in the Pacific 1922-1930, the conflicts that the planners envisioned actually occurred. 

Gone are the strategic bombers and large carrier task forces.  In their place are dreadnoughts, battleships, battlecruisers and biplanes.  Face off ships from World War I and the inter-war years, including (depending on the scenario) hypothetical ships such as the Battlecruiser Lexington, the 18” South Dakota Class, the British G3 and the Japanese Kii.

War Plan Orange: Dreadnoughts in the Pacific 1922-1930 , from the team that brought you the critically acclaimed historical air, naval and land combat wargame War in the Pacific , puts you in control of Japan or the Allies (including The United States, Great Britain, The Commonwealth, France and the Netherlands) in a hypothetical post-World War I conflict that would have reshaped the future of the world.  Enjoy the historical accuracy and meticulous attention to detail through one of the most immersive strategic and operational wargame engines ever created.

Two campaigns with three variants each as well as two smaller scenarios (eight scenarios total) cover two hypothetical wars in the decade of the 1920s.

War Plan Orange : Dreadnoughts in the Pacific 1922-1930, while using the War in the Pacific engine developed by 2by3 Games, is in itself an entirely different game with a very different combat dynamic and eight new scenarios, including multi-year campaigns, to play against the AI or by e-mail with a human opponent.
