Victory and Glory: Napoleon Gets a Gameplay Video22 Feb 2016 0
We talked about Victory and Glory: Napoleon last week, namely that it had received a teaser trailer. We might have also added a bit of snark to that story, as the aforementioned teaser didn't show much other than big, floating letters. Today, Matrix Games made up for the lack of visuals in the teaser with a massive gameplay tutorial video, showing over 20 minutes of Victory and Glory in action.
If you aren't familiar, Victory and Glory: Napoleon is a tabletop game coming from designer Glenn Drover. The cardboard version should be hitting stores later this year, but the digital version will be hitting PCs on March 17. That's right, St. Patrick's Day, so, if your plans for drinking green beer and eating corned beef and cabbage don't pan out, Matrix has a fallback plan for you.
Want some game details? Ok, here's an excellently produced cut and paste job (please, don't try this at home...I'm a semi-professional):
- Re-fight the entire Napoleonic Wars!
- Strategic Level map of Europe from 1800 – 1818.
- Dozens of unique unit types (cavalry, infantry, artillery, and generals for each major nation and several minor nations).
- Almost 100 unique ‘Event Cards’ with artwork by world-renowned Napoleonic Artist: Keith Rocco. Each card gives the player special unit upgrades, advantages in battle, new recruits, historical events, or political actions that can change the alliances or borders of the French Empire.
- Land and Naval Battles utilizing a fast-play abstracted tactical battle system.
- More detailed tactical battle system also available for larger battles.
- Never plays the same way twice. Infinitely re-playable.
- Solo play against a very challenging AI
Includes six unique scenarios with different starting conditions:
- 1800: The Second Coalition
- 1805: The Dash for the Danube
- 1806: Who’s Next?
- 1809: The Austrian Phoenix and the Spanish Quagmire
- 1812: Into Russia
- 1813: Defending the Empire
And now for that gameplay video I've been chirping about:
