Western Civilization Software and Matrix Games release their American Civil War grand strategy title.

Matrix Games and Western Civilization Software (www.west-civ.com) are pleased to announce the release of Forge of Freedom: The American Civil War strategy game. Based on the Crown of Glory engine, Forge of Freedom: The American Civil War is the latest incarnation of Western Civilization Software's already popular Napoleonic War title.

David Heath, Director of Operations expressed his excitement that the next grand strategy project from Western Civilization has finally come to fruition: "Forge of Freedom: The American Civil War includes all of the addictive gameplay that brought such high acclaim to Crown of Glory while still capturing the look and feel of commanding large armies during the Civil War. Forge of Freedom: The American Civil War is a fun, accessible game for strategy fans and a rich historical journey back to the 1860s for Civil War buffs and grognards."

Forge of Freedom: The American Civil War is a operational level turn-based strategy game that allows the player to command brigades at the tactical level in classic hex-based combat. However, Forge of Freedom: The American Civil War is not only a standard operational military strategy game as it also gives you complete control over military, economic and political
developments.

Forge of Freedom: The American Civil War is packed with historical detail as you can control the careers of more than 1,000 generals. In addition, you can custom tailor your army to meet your liking with over than 50 types of period firearms and artillery, historical field armies containing the Iron Brigade, the Orphan Brigade or 100 other legendary units, and over 700 authentic flags to choose each units' own standard. On the management and operational side of things, as a General you will be charged with allocating resources toward research in order to gain improved technology and logistical support in five different areas. Forge of Freedom: The American Civil War also contains an in depth naval aspect as well. You can command your navy to hunt blockade runners, blockade ports, launch amphibious assaults, and even launch a good old fashioned fort bombardment.

At the moment only digital download ist possible. Will there be also the possibility to choose both, digital download and getting also a boxed version ? I would prefer that. I´m writing from Europe, Austria.

Great Work again from Matrix games (as COG and so on)

Ok now you've gone and done it! You have put me in an awful predicament. I bought Space Empires V last month and have a great game going, I told my kids that I want Medieval Total War II and Warhammer Mark of Chaos for Christmas and now you guys go and release Forge of Freedom. Man how am I going to explain to the wife the new bill that is going to show up on the credit card just before Christmas? And how the heck am I going to play 4 games at the same time? Not to mention that I have a year long WitP PBEM game going on and I'm about to make level 60 with my World of Warcraft warrior. I'll just have to quit work now so I'll have time to play FoF. I hope you guys are proud of yourselves.

All kidding aside, congratulations on getting the game published before Christmas. I’ve been looking forward to this game since you started working on it. Based on my experience with Crown of Glory I’m sure I will get many hours of enjoyment out of FoF. Great job!

Any word on when the boxed version will be out?  I've got someone willing to get it for me for Christmas, but I want them to get the boxed version.

Hello!

in the message on the 30.11.06 it was written:

"Yes, in about 5-7 days, we will announce this on the forums. "

Now, 18 days are over!



When the boxed version will be out?

Best regards

Pomakli

The delay has been due to the introduction of the printed manual into the process. We were hoping this would be done by last Friday. Our new target is this Wednesday, hopefully it will be sooner.

Regards,

- Erik
