Title: What nations are going to be in this game?
Post by: McLovin on January 21, 2017, 12:40:55 pm
Anyone have an ideas about what nations will be included except France and Britain as shown in the trailer? We don't really know what part of the Napoleonic Wars the game will be set in but I think I saw Portuguese soldiers in the trailer.

Looking at the terrain and some of the uniforms, i'd make a guess that it's already got a Peninsular setting, which would mean Portugese, Spanish-aligned Spanish and Frog-aligned Spanish.

Would be great to see the game extend all over the continent of Europe, purely for variety and to attract a broader playerbase.

I would love to see Prussia/Russia in this game. But it all depends on what plans the devs have for the game, they may eventually add a 'Eastern Front' DLC adding those nations and appropriate battlefields for them aswell.
Title: Re: What nations are going to be in this game?
Post by: Wigster600 on January 22, 2017, 01:44:06 pm
Or just an update/have it as part of the base game instead of a DLC?
Title: Re: What nations are going to be in this game?
Post by: Midnight on January 22, 2017, 01:46:17 pm
In my opinion I'm fine with just Britain / France when the game comes out intentionally. Maybe in later patches or updates they can slowly add in nations like Prussia, Russia, Austria, Spain, etc. However I don't see it crucial to the game's immediate success if all the nations are out on Day 1.

To be honest, considering the game's current status to combining naval and land battles, Denmark-Norway/Portugal/Spain would make more sense than adding Russia.

The two countries Britain fought the most naval battles against in 1809 were France and Russia.

Denmark-Norway would indeed be a most interesting addition. As I mentioned earlier, judging from the screenshots, it looks like this game is based in Spain/Western-France, so adding Russia, Prussia and Austria would only be an option if the developers choose to make maps for the Eastern Front aswell, which I think would be quite a nice expansion. But I believe the game is still in relatively early development days, so there is a lot ahead.

Got to love me some British Danish-Norwegian fleets. Also, just adding the "basic" nations as someone called it, would make the game more boring IMO. I'm hoping the devs. will put a twist on HF, making this game atleast slightly different from NW.

Considering Jackson's comment mentioning 1809 then as land factions Austria and a German States faction would make a lot of sense.

Depends on whether its going to be set on the Iberian peninsula or the rest of Europe. But I think that getting the major factions (Britain, France, Prussia, Austria and Russia) would be good and then they can begin working on (if they want to) smaller nations..

Prussia wasn't really doing much during 1809 and all Russia was really doing was naval actions. If they set it in the Peninsular then you get Britain, France and Spain. If Europe and Iberia then Britian, France, Spain and Austria as four major nations then Portugal and German States as minor.

I don't care for ketchup, but I'd love to see the Russian Navy portrayed in a game like this. There are basically no games at all that bother to portray the Russian Navy of the 18th century or Napoleonic Era (and no, Napoleon: Total War doesn't count - they could've even get the ensign right).

I'd love to see the return of the missing guys from the previous games along with Spain and the German Confederation too. I like the idea of Russia coming with a Navy as it does make sense and would be something new and unique and give the French somebody different to fight with at sea.

If possible some of the more minor nations should show up as foreign legions too (Portugal with the UK, Italy and Poland with the French etc) though I imagine really it is a balancing of a memory for the game in the end.

Would bring some uniqueness into the game. Swedish uniforms were amazing looking and especially the grey uniformed Finnish regiments in the 1809 war. (No personal bias, I swear!  ;D)
