All the details you need on Warlords II Deluxe are listed below. We will
have stocks in the US in about two weeks from now, so you can send in that
upgrade right away if you want to.

Strategic Studies Group announces Warlords II Deluxe
Suggested Retail Price for IBM $69.95. Distributed by SSG.

Warlords II Deluxe features an upgraded version of Warlords II, with
enhancements such as network play, an improved Warlords II Scenario
Builder, plus over twenty four brand new scenarios, all on CD-ROM. The
total value of this package is $160.00, if purchased separately.

Warlords II was created due to overwhelming demand from players of the
original Warlords game. The Warlords II Scenario Builder was likewise
released because warlords fans demanded the ability to create their own
scenarios. Warlords II Deluxe is the product of users' desires for a
networkable version of Warlords II.

To create Warlords II Deluxe, with all its enhancements and network
features, the entire program had to be rewritten. SSG also took the
opportunity to make a number of improvements to the Warlords II Scenario
Builder, and to redo all scenarios in 256 color SVGA graphics.

New features include:
*       Support for networks (NETBIOS), E-Mail, modem and null-modem play.
*       Improvements to Warlords II game options.
*       Improved movement system and faster gameplay
*       Much requested Undo function for movement.
*       New 256 color SVGA graphics for all scenarios.
*       Enhancements to Warlords II Scenario Builder to make scenario
creation easier.
*       Over 24 brand new scenarios with many different army and city sets.
*       New underground scenarios and terrain types.
*       Improved computer routines.
*       New musical score.
*       New painting tools for Warlords II Scenario Builder.
*       Conveniently presented on CD-ROM.
*       Special upgrade offer for existing Warlords II owners.
