Staten Island , NY , February 3 rd, 2011– Matrix Games ( www.matrixgames.com) and Advanced Gaming Systems ( www.computerharpoon.com) are pleased to announce the release of the new 3.10.1a update for their definitive collection of computer Harpoon games, Harpoon– Ultimate Edition. The update serves as a hotfix for a critical issue that could cause the game’s executable to expire, in addition to fixing issues with the Harpoon Media Viewer that could occur when multiple versions of Harpoon 3 were installed.

The update is available for download or via the auto-updater found in the Harpoon– Ultimate Edition game menu.

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said“This update is our swift response to customer feedback concerning a critical EXE expiration issue in addition a few other improvements to smooth out the overall game experience. Further updates are in progress, but we wanted to get this hotfix out as quickly as possible.”

Harpoon– Ultimate Edition is the best and most comprehensive compilation of computer Harpoon games ever assembled!  The two flagship products in the Harpoon line up, Advanced Naval Warfare and Commander’s Edition come highly expanded and improved from their previous versions. Advanced Naval Warfare comes with a full suite of editors, upgrades and expansion to the sonar models, boarding actions, encrypted databases, and more! Commander’s Edition sports an all new EMCON AI, an expanded WestPac BattleSet, a greatly improved HCDB database, and more!

To celebrate the 20th Anniversary of Harpoon and give fans who enjoy playing the older versions a great archival edition, Harpoon– Ultimate Edition includes more than 20 previous releases of Computer Harpoon including Harpoon 3 v3.63 and Harpoon Classic.  This allows players who have databases or scenarios tied to these older versions to continue to enjoy them for years to come, and it will also allow new players who purchase the Ultimate Edition access to this rich older content.
