Empires is the subtitle of another production under the Field of Glory label. We are talking about a series of strategic games based on the popular board game of the same name. The title was developed by AGEOD studio, and as with previous releases of the cycle, it was released by Slitherine.
Field of Glory: Empires takes us on a journey to an ancient Europe inhabited by a variety of tribes and nations that have developed diametrically different cultures. During the game we follow and shape the fate of the continent from 310 B.C. to 190 After Christ.
Field of Glory: Empires takes place on a vast map divided into more than a thousand regions. In the course of the game we mainly deal with the gradual shifting of the borders of our empire and the conquest of further areas. In order to strengthen our army and ensure the prosperity of our citizens, as well as the economic and cultural background of the state, we erect various buildings on the land we own, adjust the details of the functioning of individual territories and form provinces (which helps in the exercise of control over the country), as well as create trade routes.
Tactical battles fought in turn-based mode on maps covered with square fields play an important role in this production. The authors provide us with more than four hundred and fifty types of units and more than a thousand commanders and generals, without whose help we could not have been on the battlefield. However, the size of our army alone does not guarantee success - we have to know the strengths and weaknesses of individual subordinates and skillfully use the first ones during battles, as well as remember about the proper positioning of our units.
Interestingly, the game has implemented the original mechanism - a specific battle can be transferred to Field of Glory II, and then imported into Field of Glory: Empires.
Field of Glory: Empires has a single player mode as well as a multiplayer module, in which we play via e-mail.
Field of Glory: Empires has simple, three-dimensional graphics in a style reminiscent of the board original.
