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.

One hundred years ago today, Russian and German forces were standing facing each other in East Prussia. This early confrontation on the Eastern Front – known as the Battle of Tannenberg - resulted in the almost complete destruction of the Russian Second Army and the suicide of their main commander, Samsonov.

Technology was an asset that could make all the difference in the years to come…
