Field of Glory Gets Another Update

For Immediate Release

Staten Island, NY, January 11th, 2010– Matrix Games ( www.matrixgames.com) and Slitherine Strategies ( www.slitherine.com) are pleased to release a new update for their ancient/medieval turn-based strategy game, Field of Glory. The comprehensive 1.0.3 update comes with a new scenario, a fix for a password bug in PBEM games, and a few other fixes.

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said,“Field of Glory is proving to be a formidable ancients/medieval game on the PC. With each update we seek to improve and polish this great game.”

Based on Slitherine’s popular tabletop wargaming system by the same name, Field of Glory now comes to the PC in a faithful adaptation of this acclaimed miniatures wargame! Without the calculations and measurements required for a tabletop game of Field of Glory, the PC version accurately represents ancient combat where you make the important and fun decisions on the battlefield.

March mighty legions across famous ancient battlegrounds from Zama in North Africa to the battles of Boudicca’s revolt in Britain. Later releases will expand to new periods and new areas of the ancient and medieval world. Field of Glory sports an easy to use interface with a focus on having fun in ancient combat. Field of Glory also includes a map-maker and scenario-creator which are just as easy to command as your soldiers are on the battlefield, as well as excellent multi-player support.

This update is comprehensive and will bring all previous versions to 1.0.3. Get more information on Field of Glory from its official product page.
