The Falklands War: 1982 Demo Ready For Action!
Two Scenario Demo Now Available for the Windows OS!

Cary, NC, 16 May 2005

Travel back twenty-three years and join the fight on a remote South Atlantic island chain
in which the sheep outnumber the human inhabitants, and blood was spilled all in the
name of a dictatorship trying to cling onto their rule. This is The Falklands War, a
British/Argentina conflict that only lasted a short while but whose memory is still fresh
today for the nations that fought.

Now serious students of military history and true wargamers can take a gander at reliving
this period by downloading the demo for ProSIM's upcoming game on the conflict, The
Falklands War: 1982, published by Shrapnel Games and available for the Windows
operating system. In an era of bloated demos that provide more style than substance, The
Falklands War: 1982 demo weighs in under twenty megs and provides players with a
wonderfully rich gaming experience.

The demo includes two scenarios: a tutorial that covers a SAS raid on Pebble Island, and
a regular scenario detailing a British attack on Argentinean defensive positions. Both
scenarios feature fully detailed and highly engrossing mission briefings that do a
wonderful job of setting the scenario up for the player. Even if you were only vaguely
aware of the conflict before playing the demo you will soon have a better understanding
of it (and if you play the full retail game you'll be on way to becoming an expert on the
subject matter in no time!). And with ProSIM's excellent AI the replay value of the
demo is extremely high as you search for the perfect plan of battle.

Using a modified game engine that debuted in another excellent ProSIM title on modern
warfare, ATF: Armored Task Force, and which was also used in the recent Raging Tiger:
The Second Korean War (of which noted grognard James Werbaneth said recently in
Line of Departure, "…it abundantly delivers a very interesting, enlightening even,
wargame experience."), The Falklands War: 1982 is a perfect blend of simulation and
education. With such details as bayonet charges, melee combat, amphibious landings,
naval gun fire, close air support, armor, and much, much more The Falklands War: 1982
game will let players fully appreciate the difficulties faced by commanders during that
conflict from the safety of their desk. Additionally, hypothetical scenarios will give
gamers a chance to try a variety of "what if" scenarios to see if the outcome could have
been different with say, heavy armor in play.

You've played the rest. Now play the best. Grab the demo at

wargaming experience available to the general public brought to you by the modern war
wizards at ProSIM and the indie uberpublisher, Shrapnel Games.
