When Can We Order???

Crown of Glory: Europe in the Age of Napoleon, the player controls one of the crowned potentates of Europe in the Napoleonic Era, wielding authority over his nation's military strategy, economic development, diplomatic relations, and social organization. It is a very thorough simulation of the entire Napoleonic Era - spanning from 1799 to 1820, from the dockyards in Lisbon to the frozen wastes of Holy Mother Russia.

Combining a few previous replies:

The initial release will only be through our online store (and at Origins) for $39.99 Digital Download, $49.99 Boxed. We are working on a later retail release possibility, but no word on that yet. The initial release will be in English, but we plan to add French and German shortly after release.

As with all of our game on demand / digital download titles, we can't offer a printed manual at this time. The manual will be available as a searchable and printable E-Book. Between the game manual and the short tutorial manual, there's close to 200 pages of documentation. Boxed copies available on release will have full color DVD box and printed full color CD with serial number, shipped from either our warehouse in the US or the EU depending on which store you order from.

If a retail release becomes a reality down the line, we would hope to have a printed manual included there but I cannot promise a date or that it will happen for certain.

Crown of Glory should weigh in around 400Mb. Assuming you have around 640k DSL, it will take around 1 Hour and 20 minutes to download the full game. You'll get a serial number when you place the order and it will be e-mailed to you as well. If the download aborts or is corrupt, you can always re-download within the first 30 days after the order by going to www.findmyorder.com.

The download speed should not be affected by your geographic location. Your own internet connection and your internet provider will be the main determinants on the speed of your dowload as our servers have more than enough bandwidth to handle many, many simultaneous downloads.

We advise backing up the game installer to CD once you have downloaded it, writing the serial number on the CD and keeping it in a safe place. If you have any problems, just e-mail us at support@matrixgames.com

Regards,

- Erik

How many computers am I allowed to install it on? I have a home desktop, laptop and would like to install it on my computer at work (for those slow days of course [:D]). Is this ok?

I have all my Matrix games on my work PC, except for World at War, which unfortunately was the one game that my notebook could not handle.....

You're allowed to have it on two PCs as long as you don't use both at the same time.

Correct, as with our other titles there will be a download + box option for $49.99.

Origins will have our usual show special:

Boxed copies at conventions are sold for digital download prices, so you can get a boxed copy of Crown Of Glory at any convention we attend for $39.99 (provided we haven't sold out).

We also usually have a special of some sort like "buy two games, choose one of these for free", etc.

You're allowed to have it on two PCs as long as you don't use both at the same time.

Hi... I'm a newbie poster on this forum, but I've been following the progress of this game with great interest. It being relaesed June 30 is both good and bad for me... Good because it's soon and I can't wait to have the game. Bad because I just came home from school for the summer, so my laptop's internet connection (wireless) is unavailable.

I can download it to my home computer.. burn the cd.. and transfer it to my laptop correct? That's all I really need to do, but your quote here makes me wonder if internet connection is needed to play the game? (To check if only 1 copy of the game is being run). Would I still be able to play it without internet connection?

Thanks!

No you do not need an internet connection for it to run...there is no problem of saving the setup files on a CD and putting it on your notebook.....

You only need an internet connection for Multiplayer, not for playing it "alone"

Hey there, i'm living in Denmark, and it is impossible for me to attend that convention, but why don't you make that kind of bargain, special price on your website, buy 2 games and get one for free or buy 3 games and get the cheapest for free. That would be something of interest to all us people who doesn't live near that convention, i myself would be very interested. Battles in normandy, battles in italy and crown of glory for the prize of 2.

We usually do special discounts once a year, but as a general rule setting these things up is pretty complex and the accounting is a nightmare so we avoid it except in rare cases.
