Given the nature of our regiment I should think most of you has some interest in the Napoleonic Wars so I thought it prudent to announce that Paradox is releasing a new Grand Strategy game set in the Napoleonic wars on February 18th. It is much in the same vein as the Europa Universalis/Victoria/Hearts of Iron games, some of the features are:

  • Take command: Rise in power in the era of the Napoleonic Wars, the ten years of conflict in Europe between the years 1805 – 1820, and move on to claim the control of Europe

  • Lead your nation: Attack your opponents and defend your nation’s border while the tension rises in Europe. Expand your nation with war, negotiation and keep your empire from falling apart

  • Europe is at your feet: Explore a historical topographic map in full 3D with a complete view of Europe

  • Command your troops: Use the combat order system and manage your troops to secure as much power as possible

  • Experience true warfare: Organize your armies, manage logistics, raid your enemy's supply lines and manage your leaders, produce units and set the strategy for your army and fleet management

  • Use diplomacy: Form coalitions against other major powers

  • Explore the new idea system: Embrace new technology, military tactics and economical organization to customize your nation, using the idea system to reform your nation and rise from defeat

  • Become the dominant power of Europe: Experience the Victory System that allows you to dominate the other powers on land and at sea, with the ultimate goal to establish lasting supremacy over Europe

  • Multiplayer: Battle against your friends in this heavily multiplayer focused game where you can engage in multiplayer for up to 32 players

And it seems you will be able to recruit specific units, the old guard being very likely to be among them, as well as detailed after-battle reports such as:

"Hour 9, Marechal Ney ordered a charge against the Russian flank and cut a bloody swath through their ranks forcing them to retreat in panic and was able to capture their battle standard."

You can pre-order it on Steam and Gamersgate right now for 10% off and you receive a free game; Sengoku, it's pretty much Crusader Kings II in feudal Japan.

And here's a Multiplayer preview from Rock Paper Shotgun. Apparently it's good.

You cannot define ALL strategy games off this piece of shit. Yes there is alot of strategy that goes into this game, no doubt about that. But how you find this "fun" is just wrong. I shall stick to total war, European escalation and men of war type Strategy games.

Oy, calling PDS games "a piece of shit" is just silly. Fair enough that you can't get into them, they're relatively complex games. But they ARE good.

Total War (mostly), Men of War etc. deal with tactics. Moving individual units around on a battlefield. Which is also fun, in a completely different way.

PDS games deal with strategy - supplying your forces, building them up, in this case putting together the armies, deciding who leads it and then manouvring the armies to take out the enemy. Plenty of stuff to do. Respect it or leave it Wink
