Europe! Empires in Arms is a grand strategy turn-based race to prove which
nation is the greatest in Europe. In a bid for mastery over the continent,
players can succeed where Napoleon failed or try to stop the military genius
quicker than his historical enemies could!
The game moves in monthly turns where diplomacy and builds are conducted. Within
the monthly turns there are a variable number of impulses where corps and fleets
move about. All movement is simultaneous with battles occurring at the end of
the impulse. Battles are resolved by players both picking a strategy and
fighting a series of rounds in an attempt to break the enemy. Make and break
alliances, declare war, invade minor nations, propose peace terms, build armies
of landwehr, regulars, guards, light cavalry, heavy cavalry and artillery. Many
historical leaders from the period are included to command corps and fleets,
from Admiral Nelson to Marshal Davout to the Pashas of the Ottoman Empires.
Diplomacy and economics will complement the sharp bayonets and deadly cannons of
your direct military might when you take the role of any of the major powers in
19th century Europe! As you conquer your weaker foes, use the money
and resources from fallen nations to recruit new units and replenish your ranks.
France, Great Britain, Prussia, Turkey, Russia, Spain and Austria all stand
ready with their full resources, generals, armies and fleets for you to take
command. Join the intricate and deadly contest of power that changed a continent
and created a legend.
