Posted on May 28, 2008, Stephany Guns of August 1914-1918 Gets Third Official Update
Matrix Games and Adanac Command Studies have announced that a new update is now available for the acclaimed WWI grand strategy title, Guns of August 1914-1918
This latest update brings the version of the game up to 1.23 and fixes well over a dozen issues such as the rail movement bug in addition to AI improvements and feature enhancements.
Additionally, the AI has been improved in the areas of R&D and HQ Activations which overall makes for a more aggressive computer opponent. The update also includes a few rule tweaks including the new criteria for Britain to receive Eastern Med resources and a new rule for overstacked units in combat. In addition, support for screen resolutions up to 1920×1440 has now been added and a selectable alternate graphics set created by Gary Krockover is included.
Guns of August puts players in command of waging World War I from Paris to Baghdad. The entire Western, Eastern, Italian and Balkan fronts are included as are the three fronts of the Ottoman Empire. Production, combat, diplomacy, research, trenches, fog of war, and not to mention land, sea and air combat are all included. Use land units like infantry corps complete with separate artillery units for precisely directing barrages on the enemy’s line.
As time goes on, players must deal with changing combat situations like the introduction of Stossstruppen and even mighty tanks charging through lines to break through the stalemate. Guns of August 1914-1918 fully supports AI to fight against or play by email.
