The 1.3.3 update includes significant improvements in evasion logic, additional allied army unit images, new maps for the DAG, an auto deployment feature, AI improvements, and plenty of fixes. Particularly important fixes include the resolution of several multiplayer issues from 1.2.8 including some crashes and freezes.

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “The Field of Glory system has steadily been getting bigger and better since its release. With several awards to its name and many expansions to choose from, Field of Glory is now the game to play for ancient and medieval turn-based tactical wargaming and there is much more still to come!”

Based on Slitherine’s popular tabletop wargaming system by the same name, Field of Glory now comes to the PC in a faithful adaptation of this acclaimed 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. 

March mighty legions across famous ancient battlegrounds from Zama in North Africa to the battles of Boudicca’s revolt in Britain. Later releases will expand to new periods and new areas of the ancient and medieval world. Field of Glory sports an easy to use interface with a focus on having fun in ancient combat. Field of Glory also includes a map-maker and scenario-creator which are just as easy to command as your soldiers are on the battlefield, as well as excellent multi-player support.

Field of Glory 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.
