Matrix Games Goes to Origins

New Games, Special Guests, and Plenty of Gaming!

Staten Island, NY, June 27th, 2006 – Not to be outdone by last year’s great showing, Matrix Games ( ) is pleased to announce that another great lineup of new games, first looks, and special guests will be on hand at the Origins Gaming Convention in Columbus, Ohio from June 29th to July 2nd, 2006.

The New Games:

In addition to the recently released PureSim Baseball 2007, The Operational Art of War 3, Conquest of the Aegean, and Harpoon 3, Matrix has a great lineup of first looks at our newest games. Perhaps most important is the official release of the new tactical 3D WWII game, Panzer Command: Operation Winter Storm, which will take place on day 1 of the show.


Visitors to the show will also be able to get first looks and hands-on time with some of our products that will be released later this year, including SSG’s Battlefront, Destroyer Studio’s sci-fi space combat game, Starshatter 2: The Gathering Storm, and Western Civilization’s new Civil War game, Forge of Freedom. We also may get to see the next, as yet unannounced project from 2By3 Games.
