Plenty of improvements, an updated in-game manual, and lots more come with this massive first update!

Matrix Games and Australian Design Group ( are thrilled to announce the release of the first update for Empires in Arms. This new update brings loads of changes, improvements, and fixes, ultimately leading to a substantially improved game! Specifically, the update improves the AI’s DoW (declaration of war) strategy, adds several enhancements to the user interface like a news event banner at the beginning of the reinforce phase, and several updates and clarifications to the in-game manual.

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “With this significant first official update, we’ve focused on fixing reported problems and addressing as many initial release issues as possible. The updated Empires in Arms runs smoother than ever and as we near the end of the issues list, development will continue on several requested improvements. Anyone with an interest in Napoleonics or who enjoyed playing the original table top system should definitely give this game a try.”

Marshall Ellis, Lead Developer of Empires in Arms, added "The testing and development team has worked hard to make this patch a great improvement over the initial game. As long as fans of Empires in Arms continue to offer their feedback to us on improving the game, we’re more than willing to continue doing just that."

Take command of one of the many factions in early 19th century Europe! Empires in Arms is a grand strategy turn-based race to prove which nation is the greatest in Europe. In a bid for mastery over the continent, players can succeed where Napoleon failed or try to stop the military genius quicker than his historical enemies could! Diplomacy and economics will be the sharp bayonet and ferocious cannon that complement your direct military might as any of the major powers in 19th century Europe! As you conquer your weaker foes, use the money and resources from fallen nations to recruit new units and replenish your ranks. France, Great Britain, Prussia, Turkey, Russia, Spain and Austria all stand ready with their full resources, generals, armies and fleets for you to take command. Join the intricate and deadly contest of power that changed a continent.

The slightest mistake could be the difference between the crown of Europe or exile to St. Helena. Step into history and find your destiny in Empires in Arms!

Get more information on Empires in Arms from its official Matrix Games webpage. This update is comprehensive and will bring the version of the game up to 1.01.

Is there a change log/fix list for the new patch? I checked my install and couldn't find one. Thanks.

In a PBEM game, how to proceed to install the patch ?

Does the player have to install at the same time the patch ?
When ? End / Beginning of the turn ?

We are closer to the end of the March phase.

Is this the same as the 1.01 patch we have been testing or is this the 1.02 patch?

Sorry for being dense.

I installed the offical update over the 1.01b beta update. It still showed 1.01b. I uninstalled EIA, deleted the folder, reinstalled EIA, then the offical 1.01 patch. The version still showed 1.01b. It appears to be the same as the 1.01b beta.

Any timeframe on when 1.02 will be ready. 2 months, 6 months, 1 year, etc?
