Europe 1805 is set in the Napoleonic Era. It has improved graphics, models and offers a lot of gameplay features. From investing in towns, enterprises, houses, shares to building defensive structures, formations, combat abilities et cetera!
This unbelievable amount of 374 features is a result of 1 year and 24 days of work! Thanks to several contributors which helped!
