Here is a list of some features that are available in CoE 3.

  • Many monsters and many special abilities. Some examples right below.
  • Assassins that make an assassination attack before combat starts.
  • Catapults and Hill Giants that can throw boulders during sieges.
  • Immortal Liches and Vampires.
  • Exploding phoenixes (and they are immortal too).
  • And many many more monsters....
  • New weapon system, attacks are divided into pierce, slash or blunt damage (magic attacks have other types too). Skeletons are difficult to injure with piercing weapons and you should preferably use slashing weapons against treemen, etc.
  • Hotseat and network support for multiplayer games.
  • Random maps.
  • Random events.
  • 16 different classes to choose from. And they are quite different from each other, both in what resources they need and what kind of rituals or special abilities they have.
  • Spell system with about 50 magic paths.
  • Magic items.
  • Permanent battle afflictions.
  • Horrors.
  • Stealth and invisibility. Scouts needed to detect stealthy troops, something better (a star spawn or a beast bat will work) needed to detect the invisible ones. There are shape changers too.

Do you update your steam version too?

I can't find out what my steam version is and i'm afraid your not updating it as the update news for the game on steam isn't changing.

Its kindof new territory so you might have to tell us.
I think if you hit Credits on the menu it should tell you that your CoE3 is version 3.17?

Great game! Please fix the aggressiveness of independents. It is understandable that monsters could take over my lands but it is ridiculous that my village is invaded by a single snake or a moose (normal one)

I wish some features of Dominions 3 would be in this game like the depth and character creation. The game just feels too random compared to dominions 3. The game just feels too random like in what units you could recruit per season. I also hope for an option to garrison troops like buying defense points like in Dominions 3.

All in all a great game and keep it up Illwinter!!

Question though, could I activate my gamersgate key for my desura account? I don't know if the GG version is updated and there is no version written at the bottom

A single snake won't take over your village, if you post any garrison capable of dealing with a single snake...

The gamersgate version is kept up to date as well. Check credits to see the version number. CoE Games bought elsewhere cannot be actived on Desura.

Although the read me of the CoE 3.17 is saying that this latest version is fixing typos ( congratulation on that ) the description of the Fallen Empire in socienty selection screen is still not finished because last sentence of this description is unfinished. This is not a gamebreaking issue and I can live with it but despite of that it should be fixed anyway. I dont think that finishing one sentence will take you that much time.

Oh and by the way thank you for this wonderful gem and good luck in the future development.

Just installed the Linux64 demo on Debian Sid, but all I get is a black screen with "Please Wait" and I have to SIGKILL it to get my desktop back. Doesn't print any errors on CLI.
Am I missing something?

Try running it through CLI again, but this time with -dd append on the end so the debugger is active.

So you might have:

./coe3_amd64 -dd

(or send to a file) and let's see if it gives any more hints (just post output up here or on Desura forum under "Bugs". If not, then Johan (who has probably already fixed it by now--he is like a superhero when it comes to these sorts of things) will have to jump in.

I'm running the game on debian squeeze.

Buy this. It has things in it.

It's fun for a while to try out the different factions, but ultimately the game is let down by stupid AI. That's a pity because for the same price you can buy two or three excellent games with better longevity.
