Storm of Arrows also sports over 100 new unit images, new features like archers’ stakes, new Digital Army Generator features, and more. Field of Glory commanders will also enjoy new units like Knights, Crossbows, Medieval Artillery and Battle Wagons, giving them the ability to utilize awesome medieval firepower and devastating cavalry charges!
