Field of Glory II: Medieval - Rise of the Swiss is coming soon

Published on April 28, 2022

Rise of the Swiss, the fourth DLC for Field of Glory II: Medieval, will be available on May 19th, 2022.

From the late 1300s some Swiss started to carry the long pike, at first as a minority weapon, but by the end of the fifteenth century it had become a dominant weapon. 
The Swiss system proved an astounding success on the battlefield: victorious in the Burgundian Wars, defeating the Holy Roman Empire in the Swabian War, and as mercenaries they were a key component of French King Charles VIII's armies in Italy. 
Soon pike formations were adopted in many western European countries, notably in Germany by the famous 'landsknechts'. 



This new DLC will include:

  • Additional coverage for the following nations and factions from the introduction of Swiss-style pike tactics or Hussite war wagons by themselves or their opponents until 1500 AD: Aragonese, Berber (Wattasid),  Bohemian (Catholic), Burgundian, Castilian, Danish, English (Lancastrian, Yorkist and Tudor), Florentine, French, German (Imperial, Feudal and City armies), Granadine, Hungarian, Hussite (Taborite and Utraquist), Low Countries, Milanese, Neapolitan, Papal, Polish, Rus, Scots, Swiss, Venetian. Each of these has their own historically-based banner. (Several European nations are already covered up to 1500 AD by previous DLC). 
  • 22 new units. 
  • 60 more army lists.
  • 8 more historical scenarios covering key engagements of the period on an epic scale: Kutna Hora 1421, Towton 1461, Brunkeberg 1471, Grandson 1476, Loja 1482, Bosworth 1485, Fornovo 1495, Dornach 1499.  
  • 41 more historical matchups added to Quick Battle mode, increasing the total to 239, most playable from either side. 
  • 4 more historically-based campaigns covering major leaders and conflicts of the era: Rise of the Swiss, Hussite Wars, Charles the Bold, Louis XI. 
  • Sandbox campaign expanded to include all the new army lists. 
  • Time Warp modules expanded to include the new army lists.
