In March of Eagles you take control of one of the great powers of Europe and push for land and naval dominance at the height of the Napoleonic Wars. According to Paradox, March of the Eagles is friendly to wargame newcomers, while still having the streamlined diplomacy perfect for cutthroat scheming for both newcomers and veterans alike. Players fight and negotiate over a historical topographic map in full 3D with a complete view of Europe. The game also features a multiplayer allowing for 32 players to play at once.
Check out the launch trailer below:
The demo limits you to playing Prussia, the great central European power sandwiched between the might of France and the inexhaustible hordes of Russia. All single player capabilities as well as the tutorial and the hints system are included in this demo. There are no multiplayer capabilities, and saved games have been disabled.
