There is something we truly hold dear, something which greatly increases replayability and allows players to expand the boundaries of any game: modding.
We always try to give you the tools to mod our games, as well as the know-how. Thanks to that, over the years we have published several games whose modding communities truly flourished. We’ll have a look at those games, starting with Pike & Shot: Campaigns.

“I depart, but the State shall always remain” - King Louis XIV on his deathbed
King Louis XIV de Bourbon,following in the political footsteps of Cardinals Richelieu and Mazarin, is strengthening the power of the monarchy to the detriment of the feudal aristocracy.
The Thirty Years’ War’s end – won over an exhausted Holy Roman Empire – has not brought a stable peace. Spain is still acting aggressively against France’s interests and many German and Dutch princedoms are starting to fear France’s unmatched military power.
But despite all the enemies he is facing, internal and external, Louis XIV is strongly inclined to make the Kingdom of France the Arbiter of Europe. Like a Sun determining the orbits of the other minor celestial bodies around it.
Le Grand Siècle- the "Great Century” – has begun!

"The Lord God is my Armour!" - Gustavus Adolphus, refusing the steel body armour offered by his aides, 16th September 1632.
Since the beginning of the Italian Wars in 1494, Europe has been turned into an endless killing ground. Armies are raised one after another, sooner or later involving all the powers and kingdoms of the Old Continent in the conflicts. This is a time of cruelty and great military innovations. This is the era of the birth of Modern States and the definitive death of the Middle Ages.
This is the Iron Century!

“Never do any enemy a small injury for they are like a snake which is half beaten and it will strike back the first chance it gets.” – Niccolò Machiavelli
Boots are pounding the ground for days. Dirty and grimy soldiers are marching in the ranks with the sergeants trying (mostly in vain) to keep them disciplined.
Too many days have passed since the last plundered town and now food is starting to run out. The men are nervous.
Suddenly a cry from the head of the column. Scouting cavalry have spotted enemy heavy pikemen formations supported by artillery.
It is time to spill some blood!
Pike and Shot: Campaigns is a brand new all-in-one package. It includes the Pike and Shot base game and the Tercio to Salvo expansion, plus 21 new skirmish army lists for the rest of Europe during the period of the Italian Wars (1494-1559) covering the armies of England, Scotland, Denmark, Sweden, German States, Austria, Hungary, Transylvania, the Ottoman Empire, Poland-Lithuania and Russia!
But the main new feature is the strategic map system, implemented to allow you to lead your armies to victory over an entire theatre of operations, taking into account strategic considerations such as terrain, available manpower, supply, attrition, sieges and economic damage.
