'Field of Glory' Announced - Screens

Based on Slitherine’s popular tabletop wargaming system, Field of Glory is a faithful adaptation of this miniatures wargame! Without the calculations and measurements required for a tabletop game of Field of Glory, the PC version accurately represents ancient combat where you make the important and fun decisions on the battlefield.

Last year saw the arrival of the Field of Glory set of wargames rules. Now translated into all major European languages, the rules have appeared on the shelves of bookstores across the world. To date sales have exceeded 200.000 copies and FOG releases comprise 9 additional Companion Books, with 4 more in production to complete this popular series.

Fans worldwide have praised the quality and realism of this production which is created by Wargames specialists Slitherine and distributed by military history book specialists Osprey Publishing. Over 50,000 posts on the FOG forums and an ever growing community of fans have built on the success of the original system and now Forum members are contributing towards FOG’s expansion into the Renaissance and Napoleonic eras.

The Field of Glory brand has become so popular within the wargaming community, that the brand is now supporting a range of wargaming products such as specially designed FOG terrain from manufacturers Miniature Worldmaker.

Slitherine is therefore proud to announce the Field of Glory videogame, specially created with figure gaming fans in mind. This is the latest production coming from the Kameleon Project talent incubator. The Field of Glory strategy game is made by wargamers specifically for wargaming fans.

Developed by UK Developer Hexwar, the games is turn based and set during the Rise of Rome, from Zama in North Africa to the battles of Boudicca’s revolt in Britain.

The game's main features are:

  • Gameplay that allows key decisions to decide the results of historical battles
  • Detailed and accurate depiction of ancient warfare
  • 12 historical battles with hundreds of units to control
  • Play as Rome, Carthage, Gaul, Germanic Tribes and the Spartacus Slave Revolt and even the Roman civil war
  • Single and 2 player head to head modes
  • Comprehensive scenario builder included

Later releases will include additional battle packs and an army designer where players will be able to choose their favourite armies and match their skills against opponents of their choice, on an almost infinite selection of battle fields.
