Plenty of improvements, an updated in-game manual, and lots more come with this massive first update!
Matrix Games and Australian Design Group (www.a-d-g.com.au) 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."
