Back to News Listing Wars of Succession soon on Steam

Posted: Wednesday, May 23, 2018 by Daniele Meneghini

Type: News

Released back on January, Ageod's Wars of Succession has been praised by many for its incredible accuracy in recreating two of the major wars of the XVIII century that, for intensity and extension, can be easily considered forerunners of more modern global conflicts
 
One of these wars was the War of Spanish Succession (1701-1713), pitting the French & Spanish Bourbons monarchs against the Grand Alliance built by Austrian Habsburg, Britain and the United Provinces. 
The other is the Great Northern War (1700-1721), between Sweden and Russia (and her allies), most of which focused around the succession of Poland. 
 
Ageod is proud to announce that this gem will be released on Steam very soon!

Stay tuned for further updates!
 
Check out the Steam Page here
 
In Wars of Succession, you will coordinate the movements of several armies of many different great powers and their allies, take care of their supplies, fatigue and seek better conditions to engage combat, hold sieges or retreat to recover if needed.
 
Scenarios
• Setting: the game covers all of Europe, from the Western seaboard to the Volga.
• Historical leaders: More than 200 historical leaders each rated on their abilities with over 200 different types of units from Grenadiers and Musketeers to Winged Hussars and Cossacks, as well as a dozen types of different warships
• Battlefield Tactics allow the player to make decisions that can turn the tide of battle

Field of Glory: Empires Dev Diary #8 Legacy

Tuesday, April 9, 2019

Winning the Game

In Empires, you are building your nation so that it endures the passage of time, and your achievement is measured through the legacy you’ll leave, even if in the end, your nation is no more.

There are several ways to achieve this goal of being first in Legacy. It’s not just something to be only achieved by conquering part of the map, although that approach remains a possibility, rest assured.

If you take a military approach, then you’ll want to plan your campaigns so that you conquer and hold your objective regions. These regions are set for each nation and represent loosely their historical progress or areas of interest. Some nations will have objectives set in a concentric way, around their capital, so they will expand outward in each direction.

Field of Glory: Empires Dev Diary #7 Provinces

Tuesday, March 26, 2019

Scaling up your Empire: Provinces

One of the common issues for strategy games is moving from a small nation with a handful of things to do per turn to a bigger one with dozens of decisions to make. What was fun and thrilling in the early game, like deciding if you want to build a cattle ranch or a sawmill becomes more mundane. And yet, sometimes for specific reasons, you still want to check, as the wise ruler you are, what’s going on in a precise location.

Many games try to create tools for this reduction in micro-management. But most if not all adopt a ‘forced approach’, where at some point the game tries very hard to make you do things in a very specific way. In Empires we decided that you can eat your cake and sell it too … with Provinces!

Field of Glory: Empires Dev Diary #6 - Culture and Decadence

Monday, March 18, 2019

One key feature in Empires is how it deals with the progress and decline of nations. This impacts how your empire will evolve in a major way and is a focal point for gameplay.

Practically, these mechanics first act as a limit on simply conquering as fast as possible as it is hard to assimilate your new gains without increasing your decadence. Thus your quickly acquired Empire might be impressive but will probably prove to be ephemeral. The new territories will be unruly, and in turn this can cause large issues for your government and ruler. However, decadence is not just a problem for the over-ambitious conqueror, it will affect almost every nation over time, no matter how grand, making long term stability a real challenge. Once you pass into relative decline, citizen loyalty will drop, civil wars and revolts will become more common making the risk of major collapse very real.

Field of Glory: Empires Dev Diary #4 - Commerce and Trading

Tuesday, March 5, 2019

Welcome to the fourth installment of the Empires dev diaries. This week, we will talk about trading and commerce, and how buildings are very important in relation to this.

As you might remember from our previous diary on buildings, they provide a lot of opportunities and benefits. But many will need trading goods to work to their full capacity. They will still function even if the trading good is not available, but you’ll pay a hefty sum each turn, to simulate the convoluted ways by which you manage to get a trickle of the precious trade good. For some buildings, this is sometimes worthwhile as they might be instrumental in how you have setup your empire, but in other cases you will be better to disable or destroy the building.
