Latest news from War & Peace

Welcome to our sixth newsletter!

The digital game development continues, and a new major update has just been released. More work will come to the game in the coming weeks, as we plan to have another update in time for the Napoleonic promotion of end November (see news below).

We are now struggling with the production files and their revision, as this is a huge task that must be implemented before we can officially announce the launch. Stay tuned!
