Talked to my contact at matrix games, the Harpoon series has been picked up by them.

The new version, never before released, will have multi-player capability.

They will also release Harpoon Commander's edition, which will have hundreds of scenarios and be fully windows compatible.

Did hell freeze over? Did Venom take a bath?

These, and many other questions may be answered if I call him again!

Harpoon 4 is the board game. Ubisoft did promise a Harpoon 4 all singing and dancing computer version but shelved it.

Harpoon 3 is available now. Harpoon 3 MP (multiplayer) has just entered open beta - they've had a closed beta for over a year now. Buy it here (Mac or PC, CD or download);

You can either buy Harpoon 3 now and get a big discount on the multiplayer when it's finished, or you can do what I'm doing and just wait for the multiplayer.

My reason is simple - if I enter the open beta I wouldn't leave home for MONTHS.

Tell 'em to make a start on World in Flames rather than poaching titles that enthusiasts have worked on for years.

Bloody headhunters. :shoot:

Be happy they picked it up, getting publishers for games is getting more and more difficult.
