- Release of the video game "Histwar: Napoleon"

The perfect Napoleonic Christmas present for the gamers in your midst: Histwar: Napoleon.
Official presentation of the game:
"HistWar: Napoléon is the new sequel [to Histwar: Les Grognards de Napoléon] and offers a complete immersive experience with new graphics and sounds.
The development team has been reinforced with a 3D graphics artist [...], a musician/composer (a sound artist), and a developer and wargamer by nature respectively.
HistWar: Napoléon builds upon the characteristics of its predecessors: Historical accuracy associated with a new interface. An interface designed to allow you to better control and command your troops.
One of the major improvements will be a more challenging Grand Tactical AI designed to offer serious resistance.
HistWar: Napoléon will add a new editor that will make this new simulation the reference in Napoleonic Wargaming, tactical and operational. A campaign editor will allow you to fight consecutive battles based on conditions and outcomes that you will define.
Join in [...] this march that will last about a year with the release of five successive versions: Austerlitz, Eylau, Friedland, La Moscowa and Victory. Each of them will be accompanied with regular game updates.

The map editor, order of battle editor, the doctrine editor, the scenario and campaigns editors will be released with the successive versions. The new user interface, already in development will be released with the Eylau version. The different soldier scales (1/6, ½, 1/1) and the new soldier models will be integrated in the Friedland release. The AI will be improved all throughout this process.
HistWar: Napoléon will have many versions, the details of which can be found in the HistWarGames store."
