With all due respect guys, this isn't the finalized version of the map, nor the game. There is plenty of time left for improvements and such.

Personally, I like the map. Sure it would use more texture, but it's all going to be flattened anyways after I'm done with it! ;-)

French submarine at 1912? It looks like mh2. But it doesnt matter, if it won't be slow down at the turn 50-60...

I think that's more on your end mate. It runs fine with me and I have integrated graphics.

Overall I am loving the look of new some part of me is completed! <3

PS: Any ETA on private testing from the community? I would love to be a part of that. At the moment I just lurk on the forums awaiting discussion of actual game mechanics and so forth.

I'm excited mostly due to the immense modding possibilities... scripted events + new regions + new colonial mechanics = O__O

These alone will make me buy this game

There's a reason for that. Once we developed the new map, we backported it to MHII. So in that regard, we made the OLD game resemble the NEW one! Anyone getting MHII recently may not realize how different the map looked when first released. Also, even though the interface is new, we wanted to keep a sense of familiarity to players who are used to the earlier games. It's an iteration keeping what we believe is the best of previous games rather than a complete reinvention.

Woah, I see the new province in Belgium, I hope the same is happening all over the map, so I can have more possibilities when creating puppet states :)

Making History in the News see all
  • Muzzy Lane officially releases its epic WWI strategy game Making History: The Great War
    January 29, 2015 

    After months in public development as part of Steam's Early Access program and a public beta at its own site, Making History: The Great War is now in official release. The game, a grand strategy title centered on the era surrounding WWI, puts players in the role of national leader during a time of unstable empires, rising nationalism, and the emergence of modern, industrialized war. Players can take actions to write their own page of history.

    January 20, 2015 

    With the game about to officially release on Jan 29th, lead engineer Dave McCool, MH designer Ralph Gerth and I (Chris Parsons, product manager), were reflecting recently on our experience having a game available to the public on Steam’s Early Access. We’ve been hearing a lot about Early Access lately, including some criticism from players who bought in and then were unhappy when the title they purchased remained in Early Access too long, or, in some cases, never emerged. These are perfectly valid concerns. Like Kickstarter projects, buying into a creative process in the early stages of development isn’t a sure thing. So what’s the view from the developer side?

  • Armchair General previews TGW
    July 17, 2014 

    "Although the graphic and mechanics are similar to Muzzy Lane’s World War II games, play in the new game is different. The world—even Europe—was not as developed in 1912 as it was in 1933. Gaining wealth and increasing military might is a function of building factories in cities. These factories must have well-developed rail systems, and only Britain and most of Germany are well-heeled in this respect. Powers such as Austria-Hungary and even France didn’t have enough double-tracked lines to expand their manufacturing base or easily move troops. Colonies in Asia and Africa not only have poor transportation systems but very backward agriculture. "
