Back to News Listing The most accurate game on the English Civil War has been just released!

Type: News

Without any doubt, the United Kingdom as we know today, couldn’t exist without the conflict known as the “English Civil War”. For 9 long years, from 1642 to 1651 the country saw two major factions fighting each other to the end not just for supremacy, but to build the foundations of the new English Society for centuries to come.

Starting with inconclusive battles and with practically untrained troops, this conflict ended with the establishment of probably one of the best armies England ever had - the New Model Army – and with the initial structure of a Constitutional Monarchy that remains a part of England to this day.

Even though Parliament only achieved final supremacy in the management of government affairs  40 years later during the Glorious Revolution, the seeds of change which ultimately lead to the creation of the English Kingdom similar to its present form, can be directly linked to the battlefields of Edgehill and Marston Moor, as well as many others during the first Civil War.

The new turn-based grand strategy game developed by Ageod and published by Matrix Games aims to recreate this bitter and decisive war with historical precision. With a detailed selection of the historical units of the conflict you will find the Covenanters, Newcastle’s whitecoats, Cromwell’s Ironside’s, the New Model Army or the Cornish legendary infantry.

Players can build and manage their armies, throughout the campaigns set in the various theaters of operations like Yorkshire, Cheshire, Lancashire, Bristol, Lincolnshire, and more.The game includes an innovative card system that lets you trigger general "war" events such as the Commission of Array, Recruitment, Break Blockade.

More Historical Events are triggered throughout the game giving the player crucial decision points. These cover anything from the seize of a city, The arrival of the Queen to Covenanters intervention.

Wars of Succession soon on Steam

Wednesday, May 23, 2018

Released back on January, Ageod's Wars of Succession has been praised by many for its incredible accuracy in recreating two of the major wars of the XVIII century that, for intensity and extension, can be easily considered forerunners of more modern global conflicts
 
One of these wars was the War of Spanish Succession (1701-1713), pitting the French & Spanish Bourbons monarchs against the Grand Alliance built by Austrian Habsburg, Britain and the United Provinces. 
The other is the Great Northern War (1700-1721), between Sweden and Russia (and her allies), most of which focused around the succession of Poland. 
 
Ageod is proud to announce that this gem will be released on Steam very soon!

Wars of Succession is OUT

Thursday, January 25, 2018

I have resolved never to start an unjust war, but never to end a legitimate one except by defeating my enemies. - Charles XII of Sweden

It is the year 1700 but this new century is not bringing peace to Europe. Two great wars are erupting almost simultaneously, covering the Old World with fire, smoke and steel.
 
Over Western and southwest Europe, the War of Spanish Succession sees the French - Spanish Bourbons monarchs against the Grand Alliance built by Austrian Habsburgs, Britain and the United Provinces. The stakes are high, as every power involved is willing to conquer a share of the "Empire where the Sun never sets".
