Field of Glory: Empires - Persia 550 - 330 BCE is coming soon

Post by Daniele » Tue Mar 17, 2020 1:47 pm

One of the most innovative videogames in the grand strategy genre is ready to strike again.



Field of Glory: Empires - Persia 550 - 330 BCE new campaign starts 2 centuries before the Empires campaign. It brings players at the time when Athens and Sparta were still vying for supremacy over Hellas world while the Achaemenid Empire is more and more looming on the other side of the Aegean Sea.

This DLC adds new custom content for each faction in the game. Every nation will receive new sets of tools to further their goals alongside a totally revamped system of Impediments and Perks.

Federate some barbarians, form new colonies, decide to declare the Olympic Games, and many more options available!
Major nations of this time have seen a ‘special’ focus. Don’t expect to play Persia as you play Athens or Lydia! New Events, missions, national modifiers, special units and specific buildings will make you play differently.

Good description of my playing style. Random.

Fantastic news, especially in this time of plague.

Will this DLC involve revised combat mechanics for mass archers? More specifically Sparabara foot, which I believe consists of 9 rows of archers protected by 1 row of spear and shield.

They are modeled as being infantry with some archer rating. This was the best way to preserve balance regarding their cost and compared to others nations. But rest assured, they are quite efficient nonetheless. You get specialized Eastern Archers though, and all these models map 100% with the FOG II Persian roster, if you do the tac battles.

So when playing as Sparta, there is a chance that recruited units cannot end their formation due to the citizens failing the Agoge/due to the military training being too harsh ? Is that what the event is implying ? I think that these sort of random events are a good addition to the historical feel of the game and spice up the gameplay, looks nice !

When we wander into the deepest and darkest of barbarian lands and waters, any chance encounters with giant trolls, golems, minotars, medusas or sirens???

Not quite, but close somehow! The Agoge is already factored (alongside the very extremist views of the Spartan society on many subjects) by the huge manpower penalty for Sparta.

Here, that's the Stratopedon which is doing this effect, this is a building specific to Sparta (although historically a stratopedon was the word used for a military camp in general) which can be provide a lot of XP to many troops, but with some drawbacks: it won't work if the region is walled, and inexperienced troops will lose effectiveness while training.

No, but you will have to answer to the Germans. Furor Teutonicus!
