Preview of Game Manual for War in the East


Matrix Games and 2by3 Games have announced the release of a preview section from the thoroughly and beautifully crafted manual coming with their highly anticipated Eastern Front strategy game, Gary Grigsby’s War in the East.

This preview of the manual gives gamers a look at Section 7 of the manual: Ground Units. The Ground Units section offers only a small snapshot of the epic, in-depth gameplay coming with War in the East and is indeed only a small piece of the extensive documentation shipping with the game. The boxed Standard Edition Gary Grigsby’s War in the East will ship with:

1. A PRINTED Quick Start Guide with well over 100 pages! (Black and White)
2. Full Manual that’s nearly 400 pages (Full Color PDF E-Book)
3. Tutorial Manual (Full Color PDF E-Book)
4. Editor Manual (Full Color PDF E-Book)


David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “War in the East is no doubt a game of epic proportions, but we’re not going to throw you into the front lines without the proper training. The documentation coming with War in the East is beautifully laid out and assembled, but it’s also thorough and deep enough so even the most intense wargamer will not be left wanting for more information!”

Gary Grigsby’s War in the East: The German-Soviet War 1941-1945 is being touted as "the spiritual heir to the great Eastern Front board and computer wargames of the past." It is a turn-based World War II strategy game that goes down to the division and brigade level and stretches across the entire Eastern Front. Each hex represents10 miles. Gamers can engage in massive campaigns, including intense battles involving thousands of units with realistic and historical terrain, weather, orders of battle, logistics and combat results.Factors such as supply, fatigue, experience, morale and the skill of 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 four massive campaigns as well as many smaller scenarios all with different strategic and operational challenges.
