Re: Field of Glory: Empires Beta is open

Hey guys, sorry for not replying earlier.

The first round of the beta test is underway, but we haven't notified those who have not been selected simply because we will have several more rounds with more additions, in the near future. So you may still get picked for one of these later rounds.

Re: Field of Glory: Empires Unveiled!

Maybe the political overlay in the stream didn't help, but I think our map is quite pretty. :) But yes of course it is different in style from the 2D maps of old AGEOD games, but this solution is more flexible for us.

Re: Field of Glory: Empires Unveiled!

But the original game (without use FOG2 , mixt tactical and strategy are never a good thing for me) it is playable in multi right? I mean it is a kind of game that you want play in multi, many factions, many possibilities of diplomacy. Yes of course! As mentioned during the stream, thanks to the WE...

Re: Import from Matrix/Slitherine into Steam

Actually, in case of the FOG2 DLCs, the Slitherine store serial number functions as a Steam key. Just activate it as a product on Steam normally.

Check the link below for on how to activate the game (expansion) in your Steam account:

Re: Field of Glory: Empires Unveiled!

So a bit of a good news on the FOG2 DLC requirement topic: there isn't any. :) There will be the possibility for some of the Legions Triumphant units to show up in your converted battles (maybe), but that doesn't matter: to convert battles from (and to) Empires, you will only need the base version o...

Re: Field of Glory: Empires Unveiled!

This is something we need to finalise the details on ourselves, but IF DLC content will be used in a particular converted battle than ownership of that DLC will be necessary to convert the battle. Hi Tamas, From my understanding of how the security encryption works, I am not sure that is the case. ...

Re: Field of Glory: Empires Unveiled!

I am very happy with what i see. I have been waiting for this since Sparta/Gates of Troy. It's almost the Legion 2 we have been waiting for. I guess we won't have the city-view of Legion, Chariots of War and Sparta? I really liked it and would hope you can add it at some point. If possible, i would...

Re: Field of Glory: Empires Unveiled!

I have a question about something though - how will it work in terms of me having some, but not other DLCs of FoG2? Will Empires only use core FoG2 army lists? Or will it be able to use units from DLCs, depending on what the player own? Or maybe it will use anything it needs, even if the player doe...

Re: Field of Glory: Empires Unveiled!

My understanding is that AGEOD tried something very similar for their American Civil War game with the Take Command series. The idea was that you could export a file from AGEOD's ACW into the Take Command game. You would fight the battle using the Take Command battle engine and then export the file...

Re: Variety of units

Ahh, so in the AJE engine , units were containers for “elements”. It sounds like these elements will translate to the Fog2 tactical units, or something similar? Any hints on what kind of “strategic” traits units might have? Light Cavalry foraging / raiding scouting etc as an example? There's no "co...

Re: Field of Glory: Empires Unveiled!

I understand the concern and I well remember the uproar during Total War 2's launch. I happened to be one of the players who were not too bothered by it. :) Simulating history in a game involves translating various real-life processes into a workable and fun system. In Empires, we want to simulate t...

Re: Variety of units

Bottom line is, with the unit variety we have, figuring out how to assemble an army against a particular enemy and making sure to fight on the terrain (region) of your choosing is quite important (and fun!). Having just an army with the larger aggregate combat power is often not enough.

Re: Field of Glory: Empires Unveiled!

why 2 years per turn? doesnt that mean your characters will die too fast? besides army could move quite a distance in two years, while here it looks like you only move to neighboring province is kinda strange... it was one of the big mistakes Creative Assembly did with Rome 2 Total War, so its kind...

Re: Field of Glory: Empires Unveiled!

Empires is definitively not only about combat. There is a very strong 'develop your civilization' feature into it. Plus decadence, the rise and fall of empires. I was never suggesting it´s only about combat. But that´s my point: 4X and tactical combat resolution tend not to go well together. Each o...

Re: Variety of units

In addition, while nation X and Y both have "heavy infantry" in Empires and thus might translate to two different unit types in FOG2 as explained by Richard above, units in Empires can have different traits depending on their nationality, so they won't be exact copies of each other in that game eith...
