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 :)

    September 15, 2014 

    At the forefront of this is Muzzy Lane Software’s Making History: The Great War, the latest installment in the educational videogame series designed with consumers and classrooms in mind. The game debuted on Steam Early access on April 4th of this year to coincide with the 100 year anniversary of the war. It is due for a September 9th release. The game’s primary focus is Grand Strategy where players are tasked with taking on the Great Powers (or smaller nations such as Cuba) and steering them through the conflict using military, economic, diplomatic, and even domestic tactics.

  • 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. "
