A new Medieval expansion for the acclaimed historical warfare system!

Matrix Games and Slitherine Strategies (www.slitherine.com) are thrilled to release the second expansion pack for Field of Glory, entitled Storm of Arrows. Bringing this popular ancient warfare turn-based system into the medieval period, fans of the Field of Glory game engine can now wage war with over 100 new unit images, new features, new battles and more!

 

Please note: Field of Glory – Storm of Arrows REQUIRES ownership of the original full Field of Glory game.

 

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “Field of Glory has a bustling community, critical and fan acclaim, and a positively fantastic game system ‘underneath the hood.’ This expansion to the Medieval period not only gives gamers more content to enjoy but it brings the system into a new and exciting historical period!”

 

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. 

 

Now this award winning ancient combat system is 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.

 

Storm of Arrows also sports over 100 new unit images, new features like archers’ stakes, new Digital Army Generator features, and more. Field of Glory commanders will also enjoy new units like Knights, Crossbows, Medieval Artillery and Battle Wagons, giving them the ability to utilize awesome medieval firepower and devastating cavalry charges!

 

Please note: Field of Glory – Storm of Arrows REQUIRES ownership of the original full Field of Glory game.
