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!
