Yet another update improving this famous naval combat simulator– the benefits of the community development initiative at work!
For Immediate Release
Staten Island, NY, June 10th, 2008– Matrix Games ( www.matrixgames.com) and Advanced Gaming Systems ( www.advancedgaming.biz) are proud to announce the release of another update for Harpoon 3: Advanced Naval Warfare. Serving as a significant sign that the new community-focused development initiative is working, this 3.9.3 update repairs roughly a dozen crashes or bugs posted on the community issue tracking system.
The release comes as the third update in just a few months, with more improvements and fixes in subsequent updates on the way. As was mentioned in our 3.9.2 release, the 3.9.x series of updates are aimed at improving game stability and increasing responsiveness to customer feedback, with the goal of improving the entire game experience for the Harpoon community. Matrix Games and Advanced Gaming Systems encourage Harpoon 3 fans to head to the official forums to become a part of this new initiative.
David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said“This new community-based development initiative is really working hard to improve this great naval warfare sim for everyone. We’re proud to be working with Advanced Gaming Systems and this robust, dedicated community to frequently and effectively better Harpoon 3.”
Harpoon 3– Advanced Naval Warfare is the culmination of decades of development and fan support, resulting in the most comprehensive, realistic, and accurate simulation of modern combined air and naval operations available to the gaming public. Harpoon 3 gives the player an opportunity to manage some of the most advanced air and naval assets available in the world, putting them in the middle of many historical and‘what if’ scenarios. Players will have the chance to battle it out against a variety of enemies using technology from all of the premier naval powers of the day: Iranian Revolutionary Guard in the Persian Gulf, re-live Operation El Dorado Canyon, strike at the heart of Libya, guard the Greenland-Iceland-UK gap to stop a Soviet naval invasion of the Atlantic, or stalk unwary U.S. shipping in a Soviet Akula-class submarine.
Get more information on Harpoon 3: Advanced Naval War from its product page. The update will bring the game up to version 3.9.3.
