Major Update for Napoleonic Conquest Game

Matrix Games and Western Civilization Software (www.west-civ.com)today released the first update for Crown of Glory, the just-released Napoleonic era game of grand strategy. This first update resolves all major issues reported since release and also adds several requested features and gameplay adjustments.

The v1.1 Update fixes all known crash issues, adds a save/restore feature for detailed battles, increases the number of in-game tooltips, resolves some multi-province minor country issues, fixes an occasional PBEM save issue and addresses many other minor issues. All told, the change list includes nine new features, eleven gameplay adjustments and fifteen bug fixes. We recommend that all owners of Crown of Glory update to v1.1 for the best possible game experience.

Crown of Glory takes you back to the Napoleonic era, where you can command eight major powers, including France, England, Spain, Prussia, Russia, Austria, Turkey, and Sweden, in an mixed operational and grand strategy game where glory is paramount. Glory can be earned through a variety of methods, ranging from combat and conquest to culture and diplomacy.

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!
