Back to News Listing Another Important Update for Field of Glory

Posted: Friday, March 12, 2010 by Sean Drummy

Type: Press Release

Several fixes and minor changes coming in hot on the heels of the previous update

Matrix Games and Slitherine Strategies (www.slitherine.com) are pleased to release another update for their acclaimed turn-based ancient warfare game, Field of Glory. The comprehensive 1.1.1 update brings several tweaks and fixes including a rule change where units can no longer change their facing if they have already engaged in a melee attack for that turn.


Please note: It is strongly recommended that all customers install this update. This update is required to continue using the multiplayer feature of Field of Glory. The update will also allow owners of Field of Glory to also play against people who purchase the Rise of Rome expansion and is part of the ongoing support related to Rise of Rome, which will be released through the Matrix Games Online Store next week.


David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “Field of Glory becomes more and more polished with each new release and the imminent Rise of Rome expansion means even more solid content to keep ancient warfare buffs battling it out!”


Based on Slitherine’s popular tabletop wargaming system by the same name, Field of Glory now comes to the PC in a faithful adaptation of this acclaimed miniatures wargame! Without the calculations and measurements required for a tabletop game of Field of Glory, the PC version accurately represents ancient combat where you make the important and fun decisions on the battlefield. 


March mighty legions across famous ancient battlegrounds from Zama in North Africa to the battles of Boudicca’s revolt in Britain. Later releases will expand to new periods and new areas of the ancient and medieval world. Field of Glory sports an easy to use interface with a focus on having fun in ancient combat. Field of Glory also includes a map-maker and scenario-creator which are just as easy to command as your soldiers are on the battlefield, as well as excellent multi-player support.


This update is comprehensive and will bring all previous versions of Field of Glory to version 1.1.1.  This update is required to continue using the multiplayer feature in Field of Glory so it is strongly recommended that all Field of Glory owners install this update.

Strategic Command Situational AAR The Road to Warsaw part 1

Wednesday, October 19, 2016

Greetings, and welcome to this second series of beta After Action Reports (AAR) for Strategic Command WWII: War in Europe. This and succeeding AARs will be a little different from others you may have read. First, they will not concentrate on a single campaign; more reports will be forthcoming, but each will instead focus on a different perspective and theatre, such as Germany attacking Poland; the Allies defending North Africa; and the Soviets attempting to repel the Axis invaders, among others. I will also vary the focus onto certain aspects, such as naval warfare, Diplomacy, Research, and so on.

The recent asymmetrical conflict in Ukraine is only the last one plaguing the region. Situation is still fragile in Moldova and Transnistria, where tensions between Pro-Russian separatists and the rest of the population are part of the daily agenda.

How far Moscow will want to go further in escalating the conflict? And will the NATO countries be able to overcome their differences and act as a whole?
