Harpoon 3: Advanced Naval Warfare Updated

For Immediate Release

Staten Island, NY, March 11th, 2009– Matrix Games ( www.matrixgames.com) and Advanced Gaming Systems ( www.computerharpoon.com) are pleased to release the v3.9.4 update for their award winning naval warfare simulator, Harpoon 3: Advanced Naval Warfare. The new update includes over 50 fixes and several additions and tweaks to overall gameplay.

As was mentioned in our past few releases, 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“The community effort behind the 3.9.x series of updates is proving to be a great success. Both Advanced Gaming System and Matrix Games have been listening directly to our customers to make our product the best it can be and the latest 3.9.4 update is the latest result of that effort. We feel that it reflects a significant improvement in the Harpoon 3 ANW experience over the 3.8.x and 3.7.x series. If you haven’t given Harpoon 3 ANW a try, now is a great time to come aboard.”

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.

This update is comprehensive and will bring any prior version of the game to version v3.9.4. Get more information on Harpoon 3– Advanced Naval Warfare from its official product page.
