So will the price be for a physical copy of the game then? I notice that the picture says "pc cd-rom" :)

Well, won't be a physical copy anyway, so that does not really matters (looks like the artist recycled an old package :neener: )... due to size, would be more likely a DVD

Throngs of people want to know what the mysterious sentence 'discover the game fully before any one else' means... :)

It means that you'll be able to launch all the scenarios and look at the map and units, the moment you have finished downloading and installing the game. BUT you won't be able to run a turn before September 19th (i.e 3 days before the official release date).

Yes, this is an excellent price. Because the team also promised up more developement in the coming months, we did not want to look like milking customers :w00t:

This will be also my first preordered game ever. May someone tell us how complex are included scenarios? If we rate RUS Grand Campaign 10, on the 1-10 complexity scale, where we can put some of the scenarios from AJE?

Well, August 25 has just become an important date. But I do not understand why we will have to wait to play the game after we have ordered and downloaded it. I an not complaining, just asking why?

The five scenarios are from 4 to 7 (except the tutorial) on a 1-10 complexity scale, I think. Because, there is no aviation, no fire... BUT, they're hard to play because of many choices the player must do.

Then, I assume they are approximately complex as French and Indian War scenario from BoA2, right? If answer is yes, that are good news indeed.

Excellent news, I'll definitely pre-order! I've returned to Rise of Prussia recently, and been enjoying it. If only the AI was better (smarter!)..

Edit: and after this, please use the engine for the Great Northern War!

2nd edit: the game's webpage says that "play via email with up to three players in the same game", so there isn't any hotseat option?

Guess I will buy the game twice : once on AGEOD site, which I never used so far, because I want to support you guys, and once on Gamersgate, because I want all my games on the same two digital stores (OK - 3 with GOG.com).

Count me in. Playing PON right now (and a title called Sleeping Dogs) and well, I want this because it is an Ageod title. Even though I still have yet to master these games to my liking. :wacko:

When will the game get its own forum?
