Back to News Listing Field of Glory System Is Updated!

Posted: Thursday, April 29, 2010 by Sean Drummy

Type: Press Release

Another update launches into battle with bug fixes, a new scenario, and more

Matrix Games and Slitherine Strategies (www.slitherine.com) are proud to release another update for the much vaunted Field of Glory system. The comprehensive 1.2.6 update comes with a fix in multiplayer where players can join battles when they don’t have the required army pack and a fix to possible registration issues in multiplayer. Also included are over a dozen rule tweaks, a new battle for Storm of Arrows owners, and a few fixes for bugs in the DAG and general gameplay.

 

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “Were happy to work together with Slitherine to provide our customers with regular updates that not only improve the game experience but add new content as well. The Field of Glory system is steadily improving and growing with each new update and expansion!”

 

Based on Slitherine’s popular tabletop wargaming system by the same name, Field of Glory now comes to the PC in a faithful adaptation of this acclaimed miniatures wargame!  Without the calculations and measurements required for a tabletop game of Field of Glory, the PC version accurately represents ancient and medieval combat where you make the important and fun decisions on the battlefield. 

 

Field of Glory – Rise of Rome is the first expansion pack for Field of Glory, bringing tons of new content and features in addition to a comprehensive Digital Army Generator (DAG). The DAG allows you to design armies to a specific number of points and then take these armies in to single player against the AI or online in multiplayer. Making its first ever appearance on a Slitherine title, the DAG is a powerful tool for any wargames addict! If the ability to create one’s own finely tuned army isn’t enough, Rise of Rome also includes 5 new terrain types, 6 new battles, a random battle generator, and over 100 new units including camelry, scythed chariots and artillery!

 

This award winning ancient combat system has also been catapulted into the medieval era with its second expansion pack, Field of Glory – Storm of Arrows! Covering the armies of Western Europe from 1300 to 1500 AD,Storm of Arrows allows you to fight against armies from the same period for historical match ups or engage in “what if” battles across different army packs to see how armies across the centuries would have fared against one another.

 

Please note: Rise of Rome and Storm of Arrows and REQUIRE ownership of the original full Field of Glory game.
