We are excited to announce, along with The Lordz Games Studio (www.thelordzgamesstudio.com) the release of the v1.1.4 update for the World War I grand strategy game Commander – The Great War.
The v1.1.4 update comes with a host of fixes, changes, and additions to give players a solid gameplay experience. Improvements were made to the naval aspect, such as reducing the cost for battleships and naval unit upkeep. Several new events were also added for Greece’s part in the war, along with capture events for Rome, Milan, Madrid, Sofia, and Washington.
The AI also received a boost for a better challenge, with German AI pushing harder in France and Central Powers AI building more subs, as well as improving the opening moves for Austria-Hungary AI. The AI for USA and Britain defend themselves much better if they are the only surviving nations. The settings for Easiest AI Difficulty have been corrected to give the AI a penalty, giving new and inexperienced players an easier war to fight.
The update is comprehensive and will bring all versions of Commander – The Great War to v1.1.4. To get the update, run “Check for Update” on the game menu or click here.
