Flashpoint Germany v1.02 Update Released!

Flashpoint Germany v1.02 Update

New Version of Cold War Strategy
Game Includes Fixes and Enhancements

Staten Island, NY, April 6th, 2005 –
Matrix Games
  today announced the release of a new official
update for their grand tactical war game, Flashpoint Germany. The new version
1.02 is now available from the Matrix Games website and gamezone.com


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 adds new AI
enhancements, improved off-map counterbattery fire, expanded equipment-specific
unit silhouettes, a new map rendering system and other new features. In
addition, virtually all reported issues since the previous v1.01 update have
been addressed, including an occasional crash, a few interface glitches, PBEM
corrections and some map overlay issues.

In total, 21 enhancements and 12
fixes are included in this update. 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.
