Field of Glory: Empires

I know there's discussion in the FOG thread, but probably going to be a lot of discussion going forward on this one.

Here's the reveal video

Cant watch the vid here at work, but is this another expansion for FoG 2 or a new game?

New game that will let you export battles to fight in FoG II.

I do hope it is expanded beyond the ancient era. Pike and Shot/Renaissance Era would be incredible.

The game engine doesn't appear to be intrinsically tied to FoG so it can go pretty much anywhere. As much as I liked the eras and depth that previous Ageod titles covered, the UI was a drawback. This is much more appealing.

I'd even like to see age of rifles.  I think the FOG system could work well with 18th century.

Pike and Shot is the same engine as FoG2 right? So that seems like an obvious next choice. Whoever thought of this is my hero of the day.

Different engines, P/S uses the old stub engine, FOG2 uses the new archon engine same as Sanctus Reach. So FOG2 and FOG:Empires use the same engine. The new Close Combat uses the archon engine also, as well as the new Steel Tiger.

Wow I did not know that. Very interesting. I hope linking this new layer to Pike and Shot is not too difficult.

Perhaps they should be awarded the Grogheads Order of the Golden Dongle.

(If that's not a thing it should be)
