PC Game version of award winning tabletop game released on the web

Epsom, 16th November 2009.
Slitherine is proud to announce the online release of Field of Glory Digital. The PC turn-based strategy game is the official digital product of the award winning tabletop gaming system. Now translated into all major European languages, the wargames rules have appeared on the shelves of bookstores across the world. To date sales of the series have exceeded 200.000 copies and comprise of the full Wargames rule set plus 10 additional Companion Books, with the final Companion now in production to complete this popular series.

Fans worldwide have praised the quality and realism of this production which is created by Wargames specialists Slitherine and distributed by military history book publishers Osprey Publishing. Over 80,000 posts on the FOG forums and an ever growing community of fans have built on the success of the original system and now Forum members are contributing towards FOG’s expansion into the Renaissance and Napoleonic eras.

The Field of Glory brand has become so popular within the wargaming community, that the brand is now supporting a range of wargaming products such as specially designed FOG terrain from manufacturers Miniature Worldmaker.
Slitherine is now launching the digital version to allow fans to play single player battles against the AI or multiplayer battles across the internet. The innovative multiplayer system created specifically for this product has been designed to be an evolution of the play by e-mail (PBEM) system. Player will find there is no need to download files or any other complicated process to view your opponent’s turns. The game also handles multiple matches in real time without any interaction from the player. No more searching through lobbies for an opponent – your challenges can be issued and then accepted when you are offline, and your opponent can play his turn while you sleep and it’s all there ready for you in the morning.
Jointly developed with UK specialist Hexwar, the games is set during the Rise of Rome, from Zama in North Africa to the battles of Boudicca’s revolt in Britain.

The game's main features include:
· Game play that allows key decisions to decide the results of historical battles.
· Detailed and accurate depiction of ancient warfare (combat mechanics, leaders, morale).
· Single and 2 player head to head modes, together with a revolutionary internet based multi-player system.
· 18 battles of varying size and 3 user created scenarios from the Beta testers.
· Play as the Achaean League, Carthage, Caledonians, Gaul, Germanic Tribes, Macedonians, Spartacus Slave Revolt, Romans or even Romans vs. Romans at Pharsalus.
· Comprehensive scenario builder is included. There are graphics for 11 different terrain types with western European and arid settings. 141 different battle group types within the system, and also allowing almost limitless ability to modify their individual behaviour in the game.

Later releases will include additional battle packs and an army designer where players will be able to choose their favourite armies and match their skills against opponents of their choice, on an infinite selection of battle fields.

Excuse me, but I just saw the elaborate ranking system for the TT tournament version and I just love it! Would it be possible to create a more advanced ranking system (elo score?) for the online ranked battles as well?

It is on the wish list but will not happen in the immediate future. We have so much work to do on Rise of Rome at the moment!
