Posted: Friday, February 01, 2008 by Sean Drummy

Type: Update

Plenty of improvements, an updated in-game manual, and lots more come with this massive first update!

Matrix Games and Australian Design Group (www.a-d-g.com.au) are thrilled to announce the release of the first update for Empires in Arms. This new update brings loads of changes,improvements, and fixes, ultimately leading to a substantially improved game! Specifically,the update improves the AI’s DoW (declaration of war) strategy, adds several enhancements to the user interface like a news event banner at the beginning of the reinforce phase, and several updates and clarifications to the in-game manual.

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “With this significant first official update, we’ve focused on fixing reported problems and addressing as many initial release issues as possible.  The updated Empires in Arms runs smoother than ever and as we near the end of the issues list, development will continue on several requested improvements. Anyone with an interest in Napoleonics or who enjoyed playing the original table top system should definitely give this game a try.”

Marshall Ellis, Lead Developer of Empires in Arms, added "The testing and development team has worked hard to make this patch a great improvement over the initial game. As long as fans of Empires in Arms continue to offer their feedback to us on improving the game, we’re more than willing to continue doing just that."

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!  Diplomacy and economics will be the sharp bayonet and ferocious cannon that complement your direct military might as any of the major powers in 19th century Europe! As you conquer your weaker foes, use the money and resources from fallen nations to recruit new units and replenish your ranks. France, Great Britain, Prussia, Turkey, Russia, Spain and Austria all stand ready with their full resources, generals, armies and fleets for you to take command. Join the intricate and deadly contest of power that changed a continent.

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! This update is comprehensive and will bring the version of the game up to 1.01.

"But why, some say, the Moon? Why choose this as our goal? And they may well ask, why climb the highest mountain? Why, 35 years ago, fly the Atlantic? " - US President John F. Kennedy ; 1962.

On July 20th 1969, the Apollo 11 mission successfully landed. For the first time in history, human beings walked on the Moon. The conquest of space that had started a few years after the end of WWII reached its climax with a manned lunar landing. In competition with the USSR, the US gained a decisive advantage when images of Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and their lunar exploration module were broadcast on live TV all over the world from the Sea of Tranquillity.
