Napoleonic Game of Conquest Available Late June

Matrix Games announced today that Crown of Glory by Western Civilization Software (www.west-civ.com) has officially “Gone Gold” and will be available from the Matrix Games store in the final days of June.  Additionally Crown of Glory will be making its debut at the Origins Gaming Convention (www.originsgames.com) in Columbus, Ohio from June 30th through July 3rd.

On the year of the 200th anniversary of the start of the Napoleonic Wars, Western Civilization Software has produced a stunning strategy title that will take you back to where it all began.  Command eight major powers, including France, England, Spain, Prussia, Russia, Austria, Turkey, and Sweden, in an operational strategy game where glory is paramount.  Glory can be earned through a variety of methods, ranging from combat and conquest to culture and diplomacy.

 

David Heath, Director of Operations for Matrix Games said, “Crown of Glory brings Napoleonic strategy gaming to a new level.  Combining strategy and tactics in one design along with detailed models for diplomacy, trade and economics truly set this title apart from the crowd and the beautiful graphics are the icing on the cake.  Matrix Games is proud to have worked with Western Civilization Software to bring such an enjoyable and rich strategy game to the many game-starved fans of the Napoleonic era.  If you have any interest in the Napoleonic era, Crown of Glory is not to be missed!”

 

Crown of Glory is divided into two segments of play, a month by month strategic mode where you control the production, troop movements, diplomatic missions, and development decisions of your country, and a tactical or quick battle mode, with turns consisting of twenty minute intervals to decide the outcome of major battles.  Crown of Glory covers both land and naval warfare.  Armies and Navies feature a variety of realistic units, each with distinct advantages and disadvantages.  Battle maps cover the whole range of terrain and weather conditions, depending on where and when on the strategic map you fight.  Take artillery, horsemen, jaeger infantry, frigates, privateers and famous leaders into battle for glory and power!

 

The robust economic, trade and diplomatic systems allow for a wide variety of strategies beyond the production of military units.  You will interact with 90 minor powers spanning over 200 different provinces, creating treaties, trade agreements, and convincing them to join your side as protectorates.  Use money and social influence to gain control where force is unwise or unnecessary.  Develop or plunder to boost the glory of your homeland.  Glory may be fleeting, but obscurity lasts forever!
