Back to News Listing Empires in Arms Gets a Major New Update!

Posted: Tuesday, October 12, 2010 by Sean Drummy

Type: Press Release

This gigantic new update arrives on the scene like a masse de rupture of improvements and fixes

Matrix Games and Australian Design Group (www.a-d-g.com.au) is please to release a major new update for their award winning Napoleonic grand strategy game, Empires in Arms. This comprehensive 1.08.04 mega-update addresses the most important issues reported by the Empires in Arms community since the 1.07.01 release.

The update includes dozens of important bug fixes, rule fixes, gameplay and interface enhancements and AI enhancements, as well as some improvements for Windows 7.  This is a must-have update for owners of Empires in Arms and we strongly recommend that all players upgrade to this new version as soon as possible.

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “We’re excited by the sheer size and breadth of this update, which reflects our long-term commitment to support the Empires in Arms community.  It’s a great time to grab a copy of Empires in Arms and start your bid for the mastery of Europe!”

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 any previous version of Empires in Arms to version 1.08.04.

Empires Apart Dev Diary - The goal of the game

Tuesday, March 13, 2018

In our previous dev diaries we focused on the different available game modes, as well as the design behind the UI. Today we are going to cover a number of different subjects, but all have something in common: why we decided to make Empires Apart.

It’s no secret that we drew heavy inspiration from games that marked our childhood: Age of Empires, Empire Earth, and others. We wanted to bring back that feeling, the familiar atmosphere of games we loved, but also add our own touch, as well as modernize the formula, bring it to 2018’s standards. Empires Apart is, basically, the game we wanted to play.
