Posted: Thursday, May 29, 2008 by Sean Drummy

Type: Update

The latest update to this Napoleonics grand strategy game brings tons of fixes

Matrix Games and Australian Design Group (www.a-d-g.com.au) are pleased to announce that a major new update is now available for the computer adaptation of the hit Napoleonic strategy game, Empires in Arms. This v1.02 comprehensive update includes over 150 fixes as well as some enhancements.

A focused effort has been made to address as many issues reported sincethe original release as possible and v1.02 represents a significantimprovement in play quality in both AI and multi-player PBEM modes. While work continues to respond to all reported issues and make furtherimprovements to AI and PBEM play, we strongly encourage all players toupdate to the v1.02 level.


David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “Empires in Arms is one of those rare games that wholly captures the excitement and fun of a classic board game and takes it to the PC. By bringing the amazing Australian Design Group system to the PC with all its elegance and splendor, Empires in Arms serves as a must-have for board game and PC fans of Napoleonics alike!”

 

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!

 

The game moves in monthly turns where diplomacy and builds are conducted.  Within the monthly turns there are a variable number of impulses where corps and fleets move about. All movement is simultaneous with battles occurring at the end of the impulse. Battles are resolved by players both picking a strategy and fighting a series of rounds in an attempt to break the enemy. Make and break alliances, declare war, invade minor nations, propose peace terms, build armies of landwehr, regulars, guards, light cavalry, heavy cavalry and artillery. Many historical leaders from the period are included to command corps and fleets, from Admiral Nelson to Marshal Davout to the Pashas of the Ottoman Empires.

 

Diplomacy and economics will complement the sharp bayonets and deadly cannons of your direct military might when you take the role of 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 and created a legend.

 

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 the update here. This update is comprehensive and will bring Empires in Arms up to version 1.02.

Aggressors - Dev Interview!

Friday, May 18, 2018

We had the chance to chat a bit with Pavel Kubat, developer of Aggressors, our epic upcoming 4x game set during Ancient Rome!
 
Matrix: First of all, thanks a lot for your time and congrats for the outstanding job with this game so far. What moved you to adopt the Ancient Mediterranean during the period of the rise of Rome as setting?
 
Pavel Kubat: The Aggressors was initially supposed to be released as a multimod game, but I eventually realized that this was simply not possible. Not just because we had a very small development team, but also because the amount of testing required and likelihood of bugs would not let us finish it.

Battlestar Galactica Deadlock - Dev Diary #6 'The Broken Alliance'

Tuesday, May 15, 2018

Youd think theyd be better shots,said Tobias. There were slugs littered throughout the plating beneath him, but the belt armour had taken most of it. It was like the Cylons hadnt even tried to aim anywhere else. Yknow, for sentient calculators.

Emaline crested the hull a few metres further down, the headlamps of her helmet lost in the flood lighting of the yards dock. Why should they be any better? Field ballistics requires intuition just as much as calculations.
