This latest update brings over 50 tweaks and fixes, some of which are major stability improvements. In addition, there are a score of scenario improvements. Overall, the update brings more stability and playability to World War One.
Also, the final full high resolution manual is now completed! This manual will be included with the update. It is much larger, more comprehensive (and prettier) than the existing manual and it is recommended that all players give it a look.
David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “AGEOD has steadily been improving the gaming experience of World War One since its release. Additionally, we are happy to present to gamers the completed full, high resolution manual which will no doubt be of great use to all players.”
As Europe mobilized in August 1914, both sides of what would be called World War I chanted “Home before the leaves fall!’’ Four long and bloody years later Europe lay in ruins and many once-enthusiastic patriots returned home disenchanted and broken ... Will YOU be able to prevent that outcome?
Take charge as a military and political leader during the most trying and critical times of World War One! As either a member of the Central Powers, the Entente or a neutral nation, you will confront the epic gauntlet of challenges that faced the likes of Kitchener, Joffre, Luddendorf, Clemenceau, Czar Nicholas II or Enver Pasha in scenarios that range from single theatres to the entire grand campaign.
Gaze over an incredibly detailed, beautifully crafted, and massive WWI map as you control dozens of different ground units, planes, and ships. To add further flavor to an already chaotic and intense period of conflict, hundreds of military, economic, political and technological events can help turn the tide of war for or against you. Deftly craft new alliances and jockey for any advantage that can break the deadlock by using ambassadors in an innovative and intuitive diplomacy system.
This update is comprehensive and will bring any previous version of the game to version 1.0.6A.
- “WW1” will offer single and multi player gaming (up to 4 simultaneous players) through LAN or TCP/IP through 1 grand campaign, 4 campaigns and several smaller scenarios.
- Players will be able to play wild cards (Lenine, Mata Hari, Fokker, etc.) disturbing their opponents strategies in order to influence the course of the war.
- Each player will pick different war plans at the beginning of the conflict allowing strategic surprise and great replay value.
AGEOD's World War One : La Grande Guerre is scheduled for release on November 11, 2008
