Field of Glory II: Medieval is coming soon

Post by Mantuvec » Thu Oct 15, 2020 4:37 pm



Field of Glory started out as a tabletop wargame over a decade ago. Designed by Richard Bodley Scott, Simon Hall, and Terry Shaw, the tabletop ruleset redefined wargaming by introducing unprecedented production values as well as setting new standards for the hobby. 

Richard Bodley Scott went on to port that experience for PC players and therefore gave new life to Field of Glory with Field of Glory II. Field of Glory II has been such an incredible success among wargamers worldwide, with over ten million multiplayer matches played in three years. It has 90% positive reviews on Steam and a Metacritic of 84 and has become a benchmark for the genre, so much that official tournaments attract hundreds of players across the world and the demand for new content is increasing fast.

The announcement of Field of Glory II: Medieval starts a new page in the franchise. Set in the High Middle Ages from 1040 AD to 1270 AD, which is the heyday of the mounted knight and the time when the entire European continent was in turmoil.  

Field of Glory II: Medieval is a deep, maniacally researched game of battles. Armies, equipment, alliances, formations; everything is accurate to the finest detail.

It’s not a game for everyone, but a deep wargame for dedicated wargamers. But it is also a beautifully crafted product that is yet again delivering in its mission to redefine the wargaming experience and bring fresh life to the genre. It also expands boundaries by attracting new players to the franchise. 

Beta signups start today for an expected release in Q1 2021.  Apply now.

To know more about the product, please consult the official product page

My impressions (in short) after the Twitch preview:

- Yes, I'm hyped.

- I was a bit confused at first that Medival will be a seperate game - but soon could understood why (complete overhaul of FOG2 mechanics/design).

- Absolutely love the new 3D unit art - kudos to the designer! :o

- Marvellous banners - and for each nation! (BTW: something I would love to see in FOG2 Ancients, too.)

- I'm not completely convinced of the new map graphic style; the ground textures are looking too ... let's say: blank. (FOG2 map style and textures are top tier IMHO. Why change it?)

- Seasons! Battles in winter! :o

- Looks like A LOT of work went into this ... Great achievement; thanks to the whole team! Love you, guys!

...

One question though: Will there be no further DLCs/updates for FOG2 Ancients?

Is this a seperate game or a DLC ? I would imagine that if it is a seperate game then it may well tie in with Ageod. Advancing Field of Glory Empires to the Middle ages, I have to say pure speculation on my part. Also a possible reason for the very long delay in releasing Dlcs, Or is the long delay all down to Covid 19 ?

Well said for every point except from the maps' one. I find this style of maps more close to the tabletop ones and thanks God (at least in the screenshots) there are not those full of hills and rought ground maps.
A question: So we will have to wait for a DlC to FoG2 Mediaval to play a Crusader Army?
For Byzantium!!

Carroccios, or similar standard wagons, were used by a number of other armies not just the Italians.

And as can be seen in the screenshots, each carroccio/standard wagon bears the emblem of its nation/faction on its side cloths and guards' shields as well as its banner.
