I'm really looking forward to this too, but mostly I wanted to just quickly post in support of comments about what a terrific developer Pocus is. When I've wanted to try some personal mods he has always been happy to answer my questions, (even my stupid ones!), and that has hugely expanded my enjoyment of the game and my immersion in it. Along with Richard Bodley Scott, I think Pocus shows what a massive difference it makes to have a developer who is fully committed to the community as well as the game. Long may they both continue to provide us with quality games!!!

Thanks, Bombax.
I'm still a player and I try to only do what I would like to see, as a player, from a developer. So good games (hopefully!) and proper support.

Does anyone know when this game will be released? Not an exact date, but will it be this year or 2023? The last game was fantastic so I have a hard time waiting :)

I too am having a hard time wairting for this. My feeling is that it will be one of the best games ever
made.

I know it is due to enter beta in September of this year.

Perhaps Pocaus can tell us more about the projected release date.

Beta call will indeed be in September, actual beta start later than that thus!
And so as you can expect, beta will 'spill over' spring 2023...

Thanks. That's a long wait, but good to know.

Hi Pocus -

Just to circle back on some suggestions made earlier in development, some quick questions:

1. Is it likely that when released the new game will have an in-game messaging capability that will include the ability to send confidential messages to both single players and groups? That is desperately needed to help foster diplomacy between players and is well-suited to a turn-based game like this, where diplomacy can play a key role. Currently, it is bothersome to require people to either use third party programs or exchange emails if they want to conduct diplomacy.

2. Will any improvements in the game engine and bug fixes be patched into FOG:E?

3. Will the new game have more scenarios than just the big campaign and a tutorial (like FOG:E did)?

4. Will the new game allow new players to pick up inactive positions in an ongoing game, to counter the usual attrition that slowly depopulates MP campaign games?

5. Will there be any more DLC for FOG:E before the new game releases?

Best,
JVJ

Hi Elxaime,

1. I'm lobbying for that. It is done by another team.

2. There will be a patch for Empires before Kingdoms is released and I'll fix bugs, and improve there and there when doable, using the new Kingdoms code. Not everything will be there though, it would require too much work to retrofit all Kingdoms code into Empires. But I expect a good amount of minor improvements done for Kingdoms making into Empires.

3. Yes, 2 mini-campaigns, playable from 2-4 players. Very adapted to medium-size PBEM.

4. I'm lobbying for that. It is done by another team. Yes, same sentence as (1) :D :roll:

5. Probably no. Unless you assemble a team of modders. I'm the only one doing gameplay, UI and AI in Empires/Kingdoms. I'm being helped on data and I don't do arts or rendering, but still.

Thanks Pocus! Sounds like we need to clone you! I hope you succeed in your lobbying for changes by the other teams. Those changes will really elevate the FOG system to another level. Also, great to see mini campaigns!

The question I’d like to ask players is then what a modders’ DLC would ideally contain:

1. Different mechanics (which?)?
2. More start dates (which)?

For Persia, have you tried either Sparta, Athens or even Rome? There is clearly a race against times when playing Rome, you need to intervene aggressively.
Personally, I tried Rome a few times but found that its neutering (no level III), spoiled the fun a lot. I did win as Lydia, though.

Try Babylon, their ruler is hopeless, but you can win.
More challenging is Media ...
