You write the story of the Napoleonic Wars!
Commander: Napoleon at War is the newest game in the Commander series, taking the acclaimed design introduced in Commander: Europe at War to the next level. Building on the international success of its predecessor, Commander: Napoleon at War brings the same simple and intuitive gameplay mechanics to the Napoleonic era, creating a different and even more compelling gaming experience. Use the combined arms of infantry, cavalry and artillery along with the innovations and strategies of the Napoleonic wars to secure victory.
Play on a beautifully rendered map of Napoleonic Europe, where terrain and weather play a large role and mud and snow may bog down your army at a crucial time. Logistics are also modelled, with supply lines, resources and sieges and the use of privateers and naval superiority to stifle trade routes. Players have twelve unit types to choose from as well as fifteen research paths, and eight immersive historical campaigns from 1805 through 1815!
