Wars of Napoleon New Scenarios?

Sun Jun 25, 2017 12:13 pm

Hello,

I tried searching the forum for any information about new scenarios, but not relevant results came up. I am considering buying Wars of Napoleon, but it only has

Grand Campaign 1805-1815 with 2 starting dates (January & August)
Austerlitz Campaign 1805
Jena Campaign 1806-1807
Waterloo Scenario June 1815

When are the new scenarios coming? I presume that the historical research can be carried over from Napoleon's Campaigns, which includes:

Austerlitz (1805), Trafalgar (1805), Iena (1806), Friedland (1807), Danube (1809), Russia (1812), Germany (1813), France (1814), Waterloo (1815), Peninsula War (1808-1814)

I am particularly interested in Russia 1812.

Or has further development of this game been abandoned like March of Eagles?

Many thanks!

My guess is they are busy trying to finish Wars of Succession.

WON also has some conceptual issues that arguably need resolving before new scenarios are developed. Namely, the idea of having all the minor countries and tribal confederations run by their own AI just doesn't work well, either in terms of gameplay or history. The AI generally would have trouble with as large a scope of game in any case. WON should have gone the route of Wars of Succession (and ROP, EAW, etc.) by making the campaign a two-player scripted experience. Maybe they will consider it if the next release is successful, perhaps as an expansion.

Many thanks for your insight! That's a good point, I'll have to stick with Napoleon's Campaigns until these conceptual issues are resolved.
