Acclaimed by both wargaming specialists and fans of the Napoleonic era earlier this year, Scourge of War: Waterloo was praised for its incredible historical and military accuracy and its high replay value thanks to the varied scenarios and the sandbox campaign.

A few months after its initial release, Scourge of War: Waterloo offers a refined experience due to several updates that enhanced the gameplay and fixed the issues reported by the community. Today, the game is reaching a new level with a new patch and a release on the Steam platform, and we are very excited to be able to show this epic strategy title to a whole new audience!

Get more information on Scourge of War: Waterloo from its official Steam page.

Important! Along with the Steam release, the game has been updated to version 1.0043!

This new version brings a lot of improvements and bug fixes! Among all a bug in cavalry column reserves formation have been fixed and now the advance of scripted French officers in initial stages of WL06 has been restricted so they don’t approach too close to enemy lines!

But the list of changes is very long so be sure to check it here.

For non Steam users you can download the update from this link or in the dedicated section of the product page.
