Field of Glory has been praised as 'accessible', 'accurate', 'satisfying', 'an excellent surprise' and 'a perfect wargame' by a number of press outlets around the world.
Inspired by the tabletop wargaming system, the digital edition of Field of Glory has been a worldwide success, bringing a great deal of innovation to the genre, especially with regards to the introduction of server based PBEM (Play by E-Mail) that makes multi-player accessible and fun and the revolutionary D.A.G. (Digital Army Generator) included in the army packs that allows player to create their own custom armies and battles and challenge other players over the internet.
The Mac version of Field of Glory is fully compatible with PC version, so Mac users can challenge PC users in multiplayer and vice versa.
A new patch for the entire Field of Glory system has also been released. The 1.2.8 patch fixes bugs, adds a load of new features and has numerous other improvements to existing features. This patch is also compatible with all versions from 1.0 up to 1.2.6, and even the beta patches released recently. It is compatible with the Matrix and Slitherine versions so is a truly universal patch. It is the last patch we will be releasing as all future updates will come from the built in updater program.
