Slitherine is a publisher who knows how to pick the games they will release. Some of their most prominent titles include Warhammer 40K: Gladius – Relics of War, Battlestar Galactica Deadlock, Panzer Corps, and Field of Glory. The last has been at the centre of attention during the special live event the studio recently organized.
According to the announcement, we will soon get the chance to play a fresh addition in the strategy genre under the name Field of Glory: Empires. It is a new instalment in the FOG series and we can expect it in 2019, although no official date has been confirmed yet.
What we do know is that the timeline for the game will be between 310 BC and 190 AD, which means between the appearance of the Roman Republic and the Empire fall. The developers will be the same as for FOG 2 – a studio named AGEOD from France.
The game utilizes the Archon engine which was developed by Slitherine. The battles will involve plenty of tactics and be turn-based. The map seems huge and like it has been ripped from Europa Universalis. It ranges from the Indian south are up until Scotland in the north.
Historical Accuracy Still the Top Priority
There will be more than 450 different units, as well as a unique roster of characters that were inspired by relevant figures throughout various parts of history. It was announced that there will be over 1,000 figures represented as the accuracy remains the top priority. Tactics will play a great role and, just like other generals of the time, you will be able to win against larger armies if you employ the right strategy.
Except for the battlefield, you can also expect politics, trade, and diplomacy endeavours. All these should create a unique experience that perfectly resembles the timeline of Ancient Rome.
Until we find out the release date and Field of Glory: Empires hits the digital shelves, you may test yourselves in the Field of Glory 2 which is available on Steam.
