Harpoon sets sail again

May 9th, 2006 by Troy Goodfellow · No Comments · Uncategorized

Matrix Games has announced that it will be publishing Harpoon 3 Advanced Naval Warfare. Advanced Gaming Systems has been keeping the Harpoon flame alive for quite a while now, but H3 has been in “community beta”status for a while. The big deal about Harpoon 3 is that it has multiplayer.

The original Harpoon was the first game I got heavily addicted to. It remains the gold standard for naval simulation games. Matrix has now resurrected Harpoon from obscurity (though it isn’t quite the same as getting Harpoon 4) and also been working on updating the Norm Koger epic game Operational Art of War.

So, kudos to Matrix for making me a very happy wargamer. The more people who play this, the better for naval sims in general.
