Game Info[edit | edit source]

With the invention of Flight and the introduction of air combat, warfare fundamentally changes in the Modern Era. Thanks to it, and new developments in transportation technology, war tactics and even strategy are forced to adapt to much more mobile forces on the battlefield. Actually, the whole world now becomes a battlefield, instead of just some regions of it.

Further technical development modernizes sea vessels to their most modern versions, conferring them more speed, range and firepower, and even introducing another game-changer: the Submarine. Sea battles now turn much more tactical than simple exchange of volleys.

Finally, Tourism gains momentum with the invention of the first building boosting this stat: the Hotel. A cultural offense now becomes possible, and combines with newly minted Public Opinion to create a host of problems for some nations. How you deal with them will be interesting.
