Any chance of a Field of Glory: Napoleonics release?

Theres is a void in PC games about the Battles of Napoleon at the Grand Tactical level, and FOG: Napoleonics fits very well , using the engine of Field of Glory II.

I hope that it will be released any time :)

Sounds really good to me. Or a 7 Years War Field of Glory. Or a Civil War Fields of Glory.

But, beef up the campaign module.

Napoleonic Era of Friedrich der Groesse Era - either of those would be a sure buy!!

Too many napoleonic games as it is. That's all we ever get mostly is Napoleonics, American Civil War and WWII(eastern front most common). Kinda sick of those 3 myself. Ready for some more ancients and from what I've read the developer is going back in history first before going forward I'm happy to read.

If you think about it, other than the John Tiller series, there is no definitive grand tactical Napoleonic battles game. The goes for the Frederick the Great era. For either one, Matrix/Slitherine has my support all the way. I look forward to either one.

I agree with all statements above. I want everything up to the Franco-Prussian War, ideally in time for Xmas :)

Definitely not, a decent napoleonic tactical turn based game is longed for since Battleground/HPS series

I bought Bonaparte's Peninsular war last week and its a lot of fun. I specifically bought this title because I thought the smaller battles would be easier on the AI and my patience. The funny thing is I also bought Scourge of War Waterloo Collectors edition last week too and I think the John Tiller title better captures the Napoleonic era. Scourge was designed for the Civil war and that's how it still feels to me. Wish Matrix has a return policy. ;)

Imperial Glory is a good old game, but its pretty simplistic, it was like a NTW lite.

A really good oldie in terms of Napoleonics and one that can still work on systems now with a few compat tweeks is War and Peace from Microids - it is brilliant and fun and a decent challenging AI,



but as for napoleonic tbs that is actually historical and based on specific campaigns/years there hasnt been anything since John Tiller and Frank Hunters Campaigns on the Danube
Napoleons Campaigns and Victory and Glory are superb but are not at the tactical level that something like Field of Glory Napoleonics could be .
absolutely nothing has been done regarding 1813 and 1807 - two massive years of campaigns in Poland and Germany, not even John Tiller has done 1807 yet.
If any developer was interested in doing something new napoleonically or something like a new Horse and Musket - for Friedrich the Great's era, i would keenly provide art for it too

Yes an excellent game that far too many haven't tried.

Alexander and Persian wars and Early Spartans is likely to happen before all that.

I - and some wargamers more, I think- am not looking for strategical Napoleonics, or quasi-tactical (Battleground), but for a similar scale as the Field of Glory games.

And at that scale, no, there is not a lot of games :(

Battles of Napoleon circa 1980's and it still works on modern computers with DosBox. May not have the pretty graphics of FOGII but a good rendition just the same.

Then today you have Norbsoft's Napoleonics series and Fields of Glory from the early 90's. So yes you are ahead of the scope when it comes to Napoleonics wargames. It doesn't have to be identical to be too many.

actually apart from teh JTS games, there have been some other napoleonic games of late from Hexwar, which are tactical turn based but i think they are only on mobile platform still, i wouldnt be surprised if they appear on steam eventually, they had a peninsular campaign, russian campaign and waterloo campaign and they make for a bit of light fun.

Does anyone recall the "Napoleon's Battles" game from around 2001 or so - it ended up being a free cd in the boxed copy of Eric Youngs Squad Assault, - possibly the worst ever tactical napoleonic game made,(though still better than much of cheap asset flip garbage on steam)

I have a couple of them, good games but just for "very easy and relaxing time" (yes, expecially that kind of moments...) not else.

I really would enjoy something more similar to an evolution of the old Napoleon 1813 a buggy but very interesting game .

you have my absolute agreement! Wargamer: Napoleon 1813, made by Steven Green (who was also behind the old microprose Field of Glory) is the greatest napoleonic game that almost was - if Scourge of War took up the 1813 campaign it would be the greatest, though i guess that is getting away from the Turn-based style that is the main topic here

I like Norbsoft's games as they are more command and control than having to move every individual unit though you can if you take up the Army command. I like to take a regiment or battery and play; dealing with the orders the ai sends me (usually right into the thick of things) and find those types most enjoyable.

Someday we may see Napoleonics in Fog2 but, not any time soon I would think. They have a lot of history to go through before they get to Napoleonics unless they bypass a lot of history which I don't recall them doing in FogI.

well thats fin by me, i mean you are right FoG have alot and i would welcome more Renaissance and 17th-18th century too. I have for now too many games and not enough time, even less with a 5 month old now to look after, so really this is all just a bit of delighting in fantasy of what could possibly be and i am sure eventually will come to be
