The update will bring a brand new scenario called Tarawa taking place in November 1942, a hefty number of editor improvements to make custom scenarios that much easier to create, and plenty of gameplay improvements and scenario tweaks. The new scenario, Tarawa, comes with plenty of mystery variants so you can never be sure what forces are opposing you or what their plans will be.

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “Carriers at War is one of those games that just stays on your hard drive long after you’ve installed it. This new release is following in the footsteps of the original by adding more improvements and more content as time goes on. Now with a brand new scenario and plenty of mystery variants, there’s still no reason to stop playing this addicting title.”

Gregor Whiley of SSG also added "The new scenario and its mystery variants are a fantastic strategic puzzle. Combine those with dynamically changing weather conditions and the constantly teetering scale of luck and there’s yet another endlessly replayable scenario that should keep armchair admirals guessing for quite a while."
