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.

Field of Glory is an approachable and fun wargame system for your PC that covers the ancient and medieval worlds. It's intuitive user interface makes it an ideal game to pick up for new comers to the hobby, while it's subtlety and depth ensure long term interest for the grognard. Find out what it is like to be a Caesar at the battle of Philippi against Pompey.  Command from the rear or imspire your men and risk death and injury from the front line. The initial release covers during the Rise of Rome from Zama in North Africa to the battles of Boudicca’s revolt in Britain.

The Rise of Rome expansion pack is now available for pre-order at the special price of £11.99 – that’s a 20% saving on the normal price of £14.99!
