The latest entry in Paradox Interactive’s stable of intricate strategy titles is March of the Eagles, a minutely-detailed look at a ten year slice of the Napoleonic Wars. It’s not the centuries-long spans you often see in grand strategy efforts, but that’s because March of the Eagles is focused on war, not empire buildings. Flex your commander muscles by picking up the newly-released effort through one of a number of PC digital distributors for $20. A launch trailer is available through the break.

Impire, a dungeon building strategy affair with a questionable soundtrack, has just arrived via digital distribution. The $20 price tag includes a terrific number of puns about our hero, Baal-Abaddon, “an Impatient and Impulsive demon Imprisoned in an Impractical Imp body by the Impotent and Impaired sorcerer, Oscar van Fairweather”. This may increase or decrease the value for you. A trailer behind the break gives a better idea of gameplay and content.

Paradox Interactive has opened pre-orders for March of the Eagles. The historic strategy game is due on February 18 for $20, but pre-orders will be 10% off and include a free copy of Sengoku. March of the Eagles is a detailed examination of the Napoleonic Wars, with gameplay spanning just ten years and focusing sharply on warfare.
