A new Field of Glory - and two new DLCs!

Post by AlbertoC » Mon Jul 04, 2016 3:53 pm

We are finally there. The new and updated Field of Glory is finally coming!

The game has been completely remade using the Unity engine, allowing a greater than ever flexibility.
What is new in this version? Plenty of new scenarios and game settings both in Single and Multiplayer! A completely new and enhanced UI! A greatly improved AI! A full game replay system! Countless fixes and improvements to the data files!
This update will be released for free to all those who already own Field of Glory on the 7th of July!

But it’s not all: two new DLCs are being released alongside the update!

In Oath of Fealty you will relive the heroic deeds and epic feats of the age of Chivalry in medieval Europe. From England's Anarchy to the slaughter of the Albigensian Crusade, kings, nobles, and clergy all vied for power and wealth. Out of this bloodshed, however, arose one of the most honored ideals of history - the Code of Chivalry. With new troop types, historical backgrounds and accompanying maps and artwork, Oath of Fealty allows Field of Glory generals to take up arms in defense of honor, Faith and liege lord.

Get ready to experience the brutality of the Dark Ages in Wolves from the Sea. Attack from out of the sea mist to bring fire and sword to the peoples of Europe as a Viking Jarl, or stand in the Saxon shieldwall in defense of your homes with Wolves From the Sea, the new Field of Glory army pack. With the decline of Rome, the Empire fell prey to barbarian hordes – the dark ages had come. With hundreds of new troop types this army pack allows gamers to recreate and rewrite the entire history of this savage period, from King Arthur to Alfred the Great.

A real classic, getting a second life!

Congratulations - even from a FOG newcomer, it seems that it's been a long and difficult journey for you guys.

I enjoyed the first game I played of FOG (Battle of Marathon) and am now looking forward to the new UI and other features.

Hope the game lives on for a long time !

Great news about the new FoG.

However, you seem to have lost all details of my FoG orders in the 'My Orders' page.

How do I ensure that I am eligible for the free upgrade please?

Likewise. I see no FoG PC listed with my serials. Is there a way to track them all down? It has been a few years!

Also: On my page, I see a column labelled 'Downloads' and a couple games have [core] listed. What is that?

Look in your installation folder (C:\Program Files (x86)\Slitherine\Field of Glory for me). You will find a text file for FOG and any of the DLC you have installed (FOG, SAS, ROR, etc.). Inside the text file you will find your serial number.

Cool. Thanks. Good thing I tried the beta test at some point when I got this laptop a year or two ago!

Of course! ;)

All the DLCs are still compatible. With the new two DLCs and the new free scenarios you'll never run out of battles to play.

Here's some new screenshots! Click on them for a better resolution:

A new and functional expandable UI.

Rus vs Byzantines in Wolves from the Sea!

A classic look: you can hide the UI completely if you wish. Displayed is a battle in the War of the Roses.

All the DLCs are included into the new FoG(U), together with the two new ones WFS and OOF (which actually is a double addon, containing the merged content of the OFE and OFL addons)

It's due to problems caused by the new unified accounts transition period. The guys are working on synchronizing the product lists from the old accounts to the new unified ones.

Some questions about the new release:

- Are you planning a Steam release for the new FOG(U) version (in the future)?
- Will the old FOG version still be available (and supported) for download in the future?
- Are the two expansion packs FOG(U) exclusive?

This is to be decided. But as with all of our releases if/when we do a Steam release, you will be able to grab yourself a Steam key with your Slitherine serial.
- Will the old FOG version still be available (and supported) for download in the future?
No, support for the old version will cease with the release of FoG Unity.
- Are the two expansion packs FOG(U) exclusive?
Yes, they are FoG(U) exclusives.

Are you releasing the whole of "Oath of Fealty" tomorrow or do you still intend to release it in two parts? Thanks.

It will be released as a single (combined) DLC! You will see an "Early" and "Late" entries for it in the game, but the one serial number you will receive with your OOF purchase will unlock both.
