Just so there is no confusion to new-comers..."Field of Glory II" is a totally different game and has absolutely nothing to do with the old "Fields of Glory". The Field of Glory series is a flexible turn-based strategy game based on a desk-top miniatures system.

Thats true, FOG 2 will be a continuation of P&S and SJ set up in Roman era, for me this is a good thing.

I must confess i made bad experience with pike and shoot. Even though i have playd in the lowest level i lost almost all games. I have practiced almost 2 years without sucess. Never had this problem with any other game. Have the fear FOG 2 will be the same hard nut.

Thank you for the offer, had help from different players without sucess. But maybe the problem is on me, i"m a nativ Panzergeneral player and PS is a different thing. However, i dont touch this game anymore. In anyway, a stratgame without hexfields felt always a little strange to me.
But despite all i whish your sengoku game, PS and also Field of glory 2 sucess and a lot off copys to sell.

By the way, just an idea. In peoples general we had some designers which created very hard , almost unplayable campaigns. Thats why a programmer mad a tool to give all units at once easely more power to give beginners a chance to win this campaigns. Maybe its possible to create such a tool for PS. As i said, just an idea.

If only they'd finally put proper Hotseat and MP options, instead of being forced to use their silly PBEM system in an awkward way.

Hotseat is must for such a game, but for me I still need the PBEM system and I guess many would like it to be there as well, the time difference and little time to play make it difficult to play multiplayer in real time for long period, PBEM made me play a lot of multiplayer games without to be worried about those issues.

Will this be DLC galore like the first title? I never jumped in cause I was late to the party and getting all the stuff turned out to be a much higher investment than what I was willing to pay.

The AI wasn't all that challenging in the first one. 

Then the pricey DLC started landing...


I enjoyed the original FOG, despite complaints.  But the very costly DLCs broke my will to continue.

I'm sure this new version, using this more successful engine, will be more to my liking... and hopefully more affordable in the long run.

Even if you don't get the DLCs, the community might be able to add new armies and scenarios for free.
The engine is moddable compared to the original FoG Digital.
