About: Field of Glory II is a turn-based tactical game set during the Rise of Rome from 280 BC to 25 BC
The game that brought the fun and excitement of the tabletop experience to digital form is back.
Developed by legendary designer Richard Bodley Scott in a completely new 3D engine, Field of Glory is
ready to set new standards in computer wargaming.
Field of Glory II allows you to fight large or small battles for or against Rome, or between the other
nations who are as yet unaware of the Roman threat, or what-if battles between nations that never actual
came into conflict historically, but might have done if the course of history had been different.
Take command of a huge variety of armies employing vastly different tactical doctrines. Lead your chosen
army and its named generals to victory in set-piece historical battles or "what-if" custom battle situations
against an AI or human opponent.
Victory will require determination and tactical mastery!
