Field of Glory II - Medieval announced!

Epsom,15th October 2020. During the monthly live stream on Twitch, Slitherine announced Field of Glory II Medieval, coming in 2021.

Field of Glory started out as a tabletop wargame over a decade ago. Designed by Richard Bodley Scott, Simon Hall, and Terry Shaw, the tabletop ruleset redefined wargaming by introducing unprecedented production values as well as setting new standards for the hobby.

Richard Bodley Scott went on to port that experience for PC players and therefore gave new life to Field of Glory with Field of Glory II. Field of Glory II has been such an incredible success among wargamers worldwide, with over ten million multiplayer matches played in three years. It has 90% positive reviews on Steam and a Metacritic of 84. FoGII has become a benchmark for the genre, so much that official tournaments attract hundreds of players across the world and the demand for new content is increasing fast.

The announcement of Field of Glory II: Medieval starts a new page in the franchise. Set in the High Middle Ages from 1040 AD to 1270 AD, which is the heyday of the mounted knight and the time when the entire European continent was in turmoil.

FoGII Medieval is a deep, maniacally researched game of battles. Armies, equipment, alliances, formations; everything is accurate to the finest detail. Itís not a game for everyone, but a deep wargame for dedicated wargamers. But it is also a beautifully crafted product that is yet again delivering in its mission to redefine the wargaming experience and bring fresh life to the genre. It also expands boundaries by attracting new players to the franchise. Beta signups start today for an expected release in Q1 2021.

Excited to see mention of the Byzantine wars against Bulgaria! I'm probably the only person to have ever typed that sentence.

If this means that Field of Glory: Empires will evolve into the medieval world, I will need to start wearing underwear to soil them.

If they made nothing but WWII games, I'd be perfectly content.  Hypothetical matchups from alternate history 1980s, asymmetrical US-bashes-some-3rd world guerillas, or minor wars between Upper Bumblescum and outer Kaboomistan hold no appeal for me.

I wonder how "different" will it be.....will it just feel like the same game with added units or will it have a noticeable different experience?  I get the tactics and units will be different, just wondering what else changes with it....

Jeez what a buzzkill...Seriously though I get what you're saying. Personally I really like this game-family, but obviously the mechanics are pretty similar whether you're taking on Julius Caesar or Oliver Cromwell.

Trust me, I hope there is more to it.....if releasing as a separate game, one would think there would have to be more......but if it ultimately just feels like DLC, still not entirely a bad thing I guess

My educated guess is the mechanics will remain the same. Hopefully I'm wrong, but I like the mechanics so...

Damn when I saw the subject line I was hoping it was going to be one of those Matrix - ready November type of surprises. Q1 21 tooooo far away. Cant wait for this. Medieval so not represented in computer wargaming.
