Field of Glory: Empires

field-of-glory-empiresMatrix Games has announced the start of the Field of Glory: Empires – Diplomacy Open Beta.

Field of Glory: Empires developers didn’t rest on their laurels. As previously anticipated, the next big thing about Empires is the Diplomacy Update, designed to enhance greatly the way the game makes players and AI kingdoms interact through diplomatic efforts. You won’t have to wait any longer as today it is the day.

Since this update is significantly massive and would probably affect the overall balance and gameplay mechanics in multiple ways, we opted for releasing the Update as a public Open Beta. Everyone willing to help us with feedback and thought is very welcome to download it and to try it.

The update is a separate installer, meaning that it will be like downloading a separate game, so no one will be forced to play with the Update in place if that is not his intention.

The Diplomacy Version can be downloaded in the members area section accessible through the “My Page Area”. We have created a dedicated sub-forum thread here, whare you will also find out more about the Field of Glory: Empires – Diplomacy Update.

field-of-glory-empiresThe day has come! Today you’ll have the opportunity to get one of the most anticipated strategy games, set in the Ancient Era. Today is Field of Glory: Empires day!

Choose one from among 77 civilizations of that time and be prepared for the greatest challenge ever made: to preserve and to enrich the Culture of your Civilization, making your Legacy stand for centuries.

Field of Glory: Empires is a grand strategy game in which you will have to move in an intricate and living tapestry of nations and tribes, each one with their distinctive culture. Set in Europe and in the Mediterranean Area during the Classical Age, experience what truly means to manage an Empire.

Expand your dominion through wars of conquest and make your culture a beacon of light, but be careful though. The risk of Decadence is not trivial. Many civilizations have collapsed for not having seen in time the signs of impending crisis. The older your empire, the more challenges will lurk in the shadows. Just expanding your borders without carefully shaping your form of government and culture won’t be the wisest of strategies.

Have a look at the tutorial videos recently released!

For you willing to have direct control over specific battles, if you own Field of Glory 2, you can import tactical battles from Empires into FOG2 and vice versa. We have set up a Field of Glory Masters Edition. This edition is a bundle including FOG2 and FOG Empires 25% discounted. This means:

  • If you already have FOG2 in your library, you can buy FOG Empires at 25% off, and vice versa
  • If you want to buy both, the cumulated price for FOG2 and Fog Empires is 25% discounted

The Masters Edition is available only on Steam. The non-Masters Edition is also available on Steam and at the official Matrix Games Store.

BLUF – Bottom Line Up Front: They nailed it. Slitherine-AGEOD’s new grand strategy game Field of Glory: Empires is here and I think it just set the standard on how challenging is was to be top dog in the days of Rome. I’m talking at least XII Ave’s for not only producing one of the best ancient grand strategy games on the market, but because the designers have also taken the genre one step beyond.

In a month you’ll be able to forge your civilization and lead it toward the heights of History!

Alexander the Great just died on the limits of the known world, and its dominions shatter in pieces. A tragedy for the Greek and Macedonian civilization, but a golden opportunity for a new leader to forge a new Empire from one of over 70 playable factions, each with its own set of national traits and units.
