Three ProSIM Titles Added To Digital Distribution!
Wage Modern Warfare Within Minutes Of Purchase!

Hampstead, NC, 05 August 2008

Modern warfare enthusiasts will be excited to learn that Shrapnel Games has now made
available for immediate download three more titles from the undisputed masters of
bringing the modern battlefield to your desktop, the ProSIM Company. Gamers can now
experience the thrill of armor clashes in the Middle East, an airmobile assault at the top
of the world and an infantry landing at the bottom, all within minutes of purchase. Not
only that, but gamers get the best of both worlds: an immediate download to start playing
right away and a physical copy shipped quickly to your door, where ever that door may
be, all at one great price.

Joining other dual-media titles already available for download by ProSIM are The
Falklands War: 1982, The Star and the Crescent, and ProSIM's latest titles, Air Assault
Task Force. All three titles are available only for the Windows OS.

"We are really excited to have this new delivery method for our games," Patrick Proctor,
founder and president of ProSIM remarked. "We take a great deal of pride in these
games. Each is a meticulously detailed recreation of the historical battles they represent.
I truly believe that they are the most realistic simulations of modern combat
commercially available. We think wargamers will agree."

Indeed. Each title has earned high praise from fans and critics alike. Amongst some of
the accolades earned by all three The Bovine Conspiracy awarded The Star and the
Crescent a choice "9", PC Gamer rated The Falklands War: 1982 an excellent 82%, and
Bill Macon of the Wargamer called Air Assault Task Force "...a great wargame."

But don't just take a reviewer's word for it! ProSIM titles are also in use around the
world by professionals such as Lockheed Martin, Boeing aerospace, defense contractors
and military organizations, and all with good reason. No other commercial titles can
match the realism of modern combat like a ProSIM title. These are not simply games,
but true simulations with all that being a simulation entails: high fidelity weapon,
equipment, and terrain modeling all using real world data, realistic AI behavior, rewards
for appropriate and accurate use of tactics, and the ability to teach through play. Of
course these are also highly entertaining games, playable against the computer or other
live opponents, in a command-time real time setting.

While each title shares enough similarities that familiarity with one allows a minimal
learning curve for the others (additionally by owning the latest, Air Assault Task Force, it
will upgrade previous titles to take advantage of all the new features found in that game),
each title features its own flavor and has its own focus. Picking the right one is simply a
matter of deciding what you're looking to simulate. Of course variety is also the spice of
life so it wouldn't hurt to pick the entire ProSIM catalog up to satisfy those wargaming
cravings that hit!

The Falklands War: 1982 examines the historical conflict between Great Britain and
Argentina in 1982. Featuring company to brigade sized units (with battalion level
amphibious landings) this is primarily an infantry battle amongst windswept hills and
flocks of sheep. Hypothetical situations are also examined, such as the effects armor
would have had on the battle. Dynamic weather and the ability to modify troop quality
before each scenario creates a high level of replayability.

The Star and the Crescent recreates historical Arab-Israeli conflicts along with including
possible future regional conflicts. Perfect for the gamer who enjoys the clash of armor,
The Star and the Crescent has mechanized forces, close air support, extensive radar
modeling, individual buildings, and much more. Since it covers from the past to the
future gamers will also appreciate the variety of equipment found in the game, especially
since most of the regional powers tended to use a hodge-podge collection of weapon

Air Assault Task Force is the latest title from ProSIM and begins a new era, with a brand
new interface and many, many refinements under the hood-all of which can be
retroactively applied to earlier ProSIM titles using the ATF game engine. Air Assault
Task Force is all about airmobile and features battles from three pivotal moments in the
history of air assault: the Ia Drang valley in Vietnam, Mogadishu in Somalia, and Shah-i-
Kot valley in Afghanistan. An upgraded damage modeling system allows individual
weapon destruction and personnel injuries.

All three titles are available right now for immediate download at the Shrapnel Games
online store, the Gamers Front. In addition to the immediate download you will also
receive the physical game. Each ProSIM title includes an extensive 100+ page manual.
That's right, a thick hard copy manual that will remind you of what you used to always
expect from your games but has since become so rare. March over to the Gamers Front
