Type: Press Release

Better documentation, Improved PBEM security, and much more for this Napoleonic strategy classic!

Matrix Games and Australian Design Group (www.a-d-g.com.au) are pleased to announce they have released an update for Empires in Arms, the PC adaptation for the award winning Napoleonic strategy game of the same name.


The comprehensive update will bring all previous versions of Empires in Arms up to version 1.07.01 and comes with an updated manual both in-game and in PDF form, a handful of rule tweaks, bug fixes, and a few AI improvements. The update also includes a major new PBEM security feature which pre-rolls combat dice to prevent cheating by re-playing a combat engagement.


David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said Empires in Arms has taken several big steps forward since its initial release and we are proud to continue to support its development and improvement. This update is one among many and there are more on the way!


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.


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 all previous versions of Empires in Arms to version 1.07.01.
