Staten Island , NY , December 3 rd, 2010– Matrix Games ( www.matrixgames.com) and 2by3 Games ( www.2by3games.com) are thrilled to release another batch of screenshots for their highly anticipated turn-based WWII strategy game, Gary Grigsby’s War in the East! The new images show some intense late war action: the Germans are in full retreat and rush to fortify Berlin for the final, massive push from the Red Army!

There’s so much content and buzz surrounding War in the East, it’s hard to keep track! Here’s a rundown of what’s out there (and there’s more on the way):

    <*>We have round two of our developer chat scheduled for today (Friday, December 3) at 1PM EST (6PM GMT). Don’t miss it! <*> A new AAR has just been published on Armchair General. <*>A two part AAR feature is also newly published on The Wargamer. <*>Lead Designer at 2by3 Games, Joel Billings, also offered his thoughts on developing WITE in a Developer Diary feature, also on The Wargamer.
 

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said“ War in the East is the product of years of hard work by the 2by3 Games team and we can’t wait until gamers can enjoy this truly magnificent game! Much like the Red Army closing in on Berlin, we are rapidly approaching the release date for War in the East, stay tuned!”

Gary Grigsby’s War in the East: The German-Soviet War 1941-1945 is the spiritual heir to the great Eastern Front board and computer wargames of the past; a turn-based World War II strategy game down to the division and brigade level, stretching across the entire Eastern Front at a 10 mile per hex scale.  Gamers can engage in massive, dramatic campaigns, including intense battles involving thousands of units with realistic and historical terrain, weather, orders of battle, logistics and combat results.  As with all the award-winning titles made by the 2by3 Games team, factors such as supply, fatigue, experience, morale and the skill of your divisional, corps and army leaders all play an important part in determining the results at the front line. Gary Grigsby’s War in the East comes with 4 massive campaigns as well as many smaller scenarios all with different strategic and operational challenges.

Gary Grigsby’s War in the East represents a truly epic representation of the Second World War on the Eastern Front and is unparalleled in its scale, detail, and ambition!
