Update 1.04 "Triumph" - A Preview

Update 1.04 will land very soon and as you know it will bring numerous improvements, from the AI to gameplay balancing.

Among all the new things and changes, there are 4 that we'd like to highlight to you in advance, so to give you a taste of what's coming with the "Triumph" Update:

Military Buildings overhaul
Image

Build enough of them, and your military expertise will translate into better leaders and soldiers.

Cavalry in battles
Image

Cavalry is now able to flank attack armies relying only on foot soldiers. Horse power!

Retaliate Expedition
Image

Do you have enough of these pesky barbarians raiding your land? Retaliate against them, but don't take their filthy villages!
An army with a leader can attack with a 'Retaliate Expedition' order that will make them not conquer the region (and still fight the enemy)

Better Naval AI

A better naval AI building more ships and protecting troop convoys

Stay tuned for the official full release!

The tradition might return for the next patch, we are debating that!

When is soon! A few days...

So with the flank cavalry, going by the screenshot it appears that the two squares on the flank are available only for cavalry units - a nice addition to make cavalry more useful.

i have one question about it though, does this mean that all terrain type frontages will be increased to fit this in or will the frontage available to infantry just be decreased for all terrain types, or will some terrain types allow cavalry flanking and others (i.e.- mountain) not?

Terrain frontages has been reworked. Part of the slots are now reserved to cavalry, but some terrains are bigger. For example before the patch, plain had a frontage of 12, now it had a frontage of 10+4

Thank you! A use for horses and the retaliation sounds perfect. Can't wait.

15 culture is huge, and for a military feature.

Nice, I'm supposed to raid but dislike this. Counter-raiding is another thing :)
