    Game Information

    The game is designed and developed by Paradox France, which is Philippe Thibault, Philippe Malacher and Fernando Turi together with support on engine coding, graphics & interface from the core staff at Paradox Development Studio.

    The game is the sequel to Napoleons Campaigns which was released a few years ago.

    The game will have a full grand campaign with diplomacy & economy as well as other not-yet-announced features.

    The game is running on the Clausewitz engine, and staying true to the AGEOD ideal of historical accuracy and gameplay, while using a modern engine and interface.

    The game will be multi-core from day #1 and be released both on PC and Mac.

    You may know two of the AGEOD guys more for the internet nicknames of Pocus and Generalissimo. The engine programmer from PDS here in Sweden is Birken, who was engine programmer for Sengoku (rock-solid engine, multicore running and super-fast performance in full 3d).

    Thanks for the infos, hope we will get more Infos soon. There are many many questions from (more or less) experienced AGEOD-gamers.

    An Ageod game on the Clausewitz engine? that's going to be interesting to see
    Are they abandonning their former engine or is it just a "test"?

    Hope it does well and Pdox france will start hiring

    Plus I love Napoleon so this could be real win!

    In the AGEOD forum it is said that "There will be an AGE/Athena game engine game released in 2012 too, more later be assured." and "... and it will be on a theme not yet treated that you shall like " so I'm very excited what it will be

    Hmm, keeping an eye on this.
    Interesting experiment with Clausewitz.

    Really awesome experiment. Although I like AGEOD's (well, Paradox France ) games, I've never really liked the engine. Using Clausewitz, though... I'm really interested in this game, it seems like a Napoleonic HoI.

    Clausewitz engine will that mean realtime (with pausing) or a modification that stays true to the WEGO format? I love the WEGO format, would hate to loose it.
    Sounds like a great game - have bought all of AGEOD/Paradox Frances games and hope to continue to.

    Any chances to see counters therefore?

    Let's wait for the dev diaries and have some tea...

    I personally like Clausewitz, and I doubt that the game will look or play like HoI, there's simply too much French pride for simply copying it.

    I agree

    This isn't Napoleon's Campaigns II its Napoleon's Ambition II

    However I'm looking forward to the next AGE engine game, hopefully there will be one in the not too distant future from Paradox France
