For Immediate Release

Staten Island , NY , October 21 st, 2010– Matrix Games ( www.matrixgames.com) and Wastelands Interactive ( www.wastelands-interactive.com) are pleased to release the comprehensive 1.8.1 update for WW2: Time of Wrath. The update adds more screen resolutions plus new map and counter skins in addition to fixing a number of minor bugs. Also, new functionality has been added: you can pan the map with Right Mouse Button and hotkey locations on the map with the number keys.

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said“Still Wastelands Interactive shows a commitment to excellence in their products with yet another update for WW2: Time of Wrath. Matrix Games is more than happy to support their efforts and we’re sure there’s more of the same on the way!”

From the front lines in France and Russia to the deserts of North Africa and the airfields and convoys of Britain, the campaigns of World War II are yours to command in WW2: Time of Wrath! This turn-based grand strategy title, the highly improved and expanded sequel to WW2: Road to Victory, puts the player in charge of the political, economic and military decisions of one or more Axis or Allied nations, including minor nations. A diplomacy system based on political points allows you to sway possible allies to your side. An upgraded and expanded naval combat system includes fleet engagements, combat patrols, massive aircraft carriers, elusive raiders and U-Boats as well as a convoy system. 

Concentrate precious industrial resources on building, training and upgrading a wide variety of combat units from airborne soldiers and armored divisions up to nuclear weapons! Historical leaders enhance the performance of your armies and hundreds of historical events like the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact, Lend-Lease and more give you choices that can change the course of history. WW2: Time of Wrath is fought across turns that vary in length by season and 25 km hexes with divisions and corps, giving the player a broad strategic picture of the war while still leaving enough room for operational decisions.

This update is comprehensive and will bring all previous versions of WW2: Time of Wrath to 1.8.1. Get more information on WW2: Time of Wrath from its official product page.
