Wot I Think: March Of The Eagles

By Adam Smith on March 5th, 2013.

There are all sorts of Paradox games these days, which can be confusing for a fellow who is mostly looking for armies to command and maps to paint in his chosen colour. Fearful that March of the Eagles might be a Napoleonic era take on Angry Birds, I was pleased to find an internally developed strategy title, but this is a wargame rather than a historical playground. I am rubbish at war.

But It’s February: March Of The Eagles Demo & Release

By Alec Meer on February 20th, 2013.

I visited France just a few months ago, and I can tell you for a fact that it's not blue

Paradox’s newly-released grand strategy game March of the Eagles gave our Adam something of a road to multiplayer Damascus moment, but now you are free from the iron grip of reading other people’s words and able to try this game of Napoleonic conquest yourself. The demo’s up on Steam for you to try, unless you don’t fancy it tonight, Josephine.

Hands On: March Of The Eagles

By Adam Smith on February 5th, 2013.

From here on in, it's maps all the way down

I didn’t expect it to happen like this. I knew that one day I’d end up sucked into a multiplayer affair that left me checking over my shoulder, erasing entries in my diary and losing sleep, but I figured it’d be Planetside 2 or Day Z, not a strategic wargame. In the last week, I’ve spent a few hours playing March of the Eagles and Europa Universalis IV multiplayer and, despite myself, I’m ready to admit there’s a future in this ‘gaming with other people’ malarkey. More on EU IV soon. First, it’s Napoleon time.

The Squawks Of War: March Of The Eagles Dev Diary

By Craig Pearson on January 17th, 2013.

So very eagley
Annoyingly, Mr Walker has already provided an excellent impersonation of map-loving Adam In his Crusader Kings II expansion post. I can’t compete with his skewering of him, so instead I’m going to copy him, but in Afrikaans, because it has the best translation of “mumble”. Thanks to Google Translate. “If you listen, you can hear him mumbling to himself about how much he loves Crusader Kings II March Of The Eagles. Listen now… [mompel mompel awrite ourkid ek is lief vir Maart van die Arende mal vir dit mompel mompel]”. What prompted this erudite expression of map-lust? This talking head with the excellently named Chris King talking about his Napoleonic War game.

Clickity-Clack, Clickity-Clack: March Of The Eagles

By John Walker on December 12th, 2012.

A few years back, seeing a game was published by Paradox meant you could be sure it was going to be something like March Of The Eagles – a hardcore-looking RTS, more map than bump mapping. The Napoleonic warmongering follows a decade of the era, from 1805 to 1815 (see how I didn’t do a lame “ten minutes!” joke – that’s how you know I love you), and is shown off in a new trailer.

Plight Of The Penguins: March Of The Eagles

By Adam Smith on September 17th, 2012.

It’s not all CKII and EUIV over at Paradox’s grand strategy development studio, with another expansion for Hearts of Iron III due at the end of this month and the recent announcement of Napoleonic warmongerer March of the Eagles. It’s a smaller game, at least in terms of the time it covers, and the first part of a developer diary from studio manager Johan Andersson contains more information on what it’s all about: “It has the war focus from Hearts of Iron, the time frame and visuals from Europa Universalis, and victory conditions similar to those you’ve seen in Sengoku.” I’ll be speaking to Johan soon to find out more. In the meantime, here’s a trailer because I know that everybody likes to watch maps being maps.
