Patch notes to FOG 2 refer to empires

After reading the patch notes to the latest FOG 2 patch, which came out last week, I noticed that they had a reference to something that was done regarding GOG Empires. It seems likat FOG 2 is now ready for Empires battles. Does this mean that FOG Empires will be coming out soon, after the Steam sum...

Then understand that no new game can be out during this period. So it must be before or after. :)



Ah, that makes sense. No doubt it will be4 after. Hopefully soon after.

When?

I have read all the developer diaries, watched the twitch video, looked at all the screenshots.

I want the game NOW.

I realize We will have to wait awhile, but could you give us a general idea of when we can actually buy this fascinating game?

Re: FoG:Empires vs Imperator:Rome

The above posts simply confirm my decision about these two games.

I will buy FOG Empires the day it comes out. I think it will be great, and I am very excited about it.

I have no interest in the Paradox game.

Re: Dev Diary #10 Units: Abilities and Modifiers

This sounds Great!

It looks like the military and tactical system will have a lot of depth to it, even if you do not use FOG2 to resolve battles.

Re: A few quick questions as the Bourbons...

This is very sad. The game has so many great ideas and attributes. All that really is needed to fix it would be to convert it into a two side game, the French and the allies. A few years ago, it looked like this was going to be done, but it never was, and most of the efforts of the Ageod team was pu...

Plus one. I do prefer the old style counters, I think it would be nice of Slitherine to include that option. But I will buy the game regardless, because it has so many interesting features, and because it is the new Ageod system and I want to support Philthib and Pocus, who have done so much to enri...

I am excited about resolving crucial battles in Field of Glory 2

One of the very nice new features in this game will be the option to resolve battles tactically, in Field of Glory 2. I am very familiar with FOG 2, and play it regularly. I have all four expansions and have enjoyed all of them. The controls a re simple, and the game is easy to learn, but it is very...

That is excellent news! It really adds some spice to the game, to think that any nation has a chance of generating a great leader.

This is odd. It is November,1703, and I have looked inside of Warsaw in the Great Northern War scenario. A Saxon Polish army of no less than thirty six units is inside the city, easily the biggest and strongest AI army in the game. Many of the units are cavalry, not exactly ideal for defending a cit...

Another possibility would be to have Karl removed from the game for five years by event if he does not capture and hold Moscow or Kiev by the winter of 1709.
