Paradox is well known for their huge catalogue of innovative strategy titles, and they just announced a new one with March of the Eagles
. This one explores the campaign of Napoleon Bonaparte himself, and it makes me wonder why Paradox hasn't done a strategy game based on the conquering Frenchman before. This launch trailer is rather informative about the game's features, but I have to wonder: can I do insanely egotistical Napoleon things in this game, like crown myself emperor of France?
“March of the Eagles” Announced + New Trailer
Sign Up for the Beta for this New Napoleonic Strategy Game!
New York – August 29, 2012 – Raise the regimental banner and beat the drums of war, because the Emperor is calling you back into service with the help of Paradox Interactive and Paradox Development Studio. Announcing “March of the Eagles”, a strategy wargame covering the ten years of the Napoleonic Wars, when a Corsican boy used maddeningly clever new tactics to bring all of Europe to its knees.
Players will take control of any one nation of Europe in this geopolitical barfight, dispatch armies and envoys, raid supply lines, form coalitions and get with the times, already. Because one thing's for sure: Napoleon's Grande Armeé is coming, and he's not interested in second place though he might have to settle for it, if he's just one guy in a 32 person multiplayer battle with set victory conditions.
