Victory at Sea Video Game 1.1 - IJN

Victory at Sea Update 1.1: The Imperial Japanese Navy
It's been almost three months since we launched and we've really been amazed with the great response we've had so far to the video game version of Victory at Sea. I'd like to thank our community who have been immensely helpful with all their feedback.

Since launch one the most requested feature has been to play the campaign as the Axis powers. With this update we're starting to deliver on that with the Pacific campaign for the Imperial Japanese Navy.

We've added in much requested control over starting positions of your fleet in battles (and a much needed boost to submarines who can be positioned anywhere at the start of the battle). We've also added group orders and squadrons to help you control larger fleets easier.

Also in this update is a big change to visibility. With restricted vision range in both the campaign and the battles (particularly at night time) you'll have to be a lot more careful out there. To balance this out we've also added RADAR and spotter planes to help you track down your enemies.

This update also includes all the features from our previous balancing/bug fix patches including Smoke screens, hidden submarines and torpedo spreads.


New features:

- The Imperial Japanese Navy is now playable in the campaign. Can you drive the British and American forces from the Pacific?
- Fog of War. Campaign map vision is now restricted based on night/day and whether you have radar or aircraft. Battle map vision is similarly reduced - you’ll have to find the enemy before you can sink them.
- Starting positions: Choose where your ships are placed at the start of battle.
- Squadrons: Group your units into column and circle formations, order the lead to move the entire squadron.
- Reinforcements. Picking a fight in an area crowded with enemy fleets is no longer quite so easy.
- Spotter aircraft added to appropriate ships to assist locating the enemy in battles. Spotter aircraft will also increase your fleet’s vision in the campaign map.
- The Battle of Cape Matapan and the Battle of the Java Sea are now playable historical battles.
- The US Northampton-class heavy cruiser, the Dutch Sumatra- and De Ruyter-class cruisers, and several destroyer classes have been added.
