A FREE Demo and New Scenario Highlight the Latest Game Update

There is now a free demo of Making History: The Great War. In addition, players who already have the game now have access to a new scenario: "The July Crisis." Set in 1914 just prior to the Austrian Archduke's fateful ride into Sarajevo, TJC will highlight the difficult and very different decisions you will make depending on which nation you decide to play. The demo begins in the same time frame as the full length scenario but limits the number of turns and only Austria-Hungary is playable.

These are just the biggest features in what is otherwise a huge update including many fixes, AI improvements and content additions. To get the demo, just click the DOWNLOAD DEMO button on the TGW store page.

If you are new to Making History games, you may want to download the pdf of the game manual:

You can also get this manual on the GTW store page or by clicking on the game demo in your library if you've already downloaded it. It will be in the Links column.

Game Manual updated with chapter on Map Views

Map views are one of the best ways to get information quickly when you play TGW. The game has 40 different map views organized into 12 categories. From finding where to put subs for trade interdiction to managing colonies in your far flung empire to seeing which regions need rail upgrades, Map Views let you access the information you need quickly. Many of the views have a specialized set of tooltips that support the individual overlay, which let you get even more detailed information playing directly off the map instead of having to find a chart. Let us know what you think!

To find the manual, just go to your game library and choose Making History: The Great War. Click on "Manual" in the right hand column to open the PDF. If you haven't purchased the game, you can still view the manual by clicking the link on the right side of the store page.

Note also that the old "Quick Guide" has been removed, as the information in that has been added to the manual.

-Recommended Title-

Personally, I recommend it. MH:GTW, is a wip...and a fairly easy gs (grand strategy) title to get into. The graphics are fine, they have a dated look - which is great, because the look, fits the period.

More content is being continually added, with an additional scenario being released last week.

The dev's are engaging with the community with regular updates, and are very active on the forums.

It's a different style to typical gs titles, to play - and I like that. But I still feel like I have control of most areas of my "Empire" (Im playing as New Zealand, and trying to conquer the world, tehehe)

At the end of the day, it depends on how passionate you are about period gs games and adopting early access in spending your dollars. But I think, participating in helping to get a Great War gs title released, just adds to the experience, which I enjoy :)

The game is scalable , you can sit back and cruise as a smaller nation ( low ranked) or get "amongst the thick of it" as one of the top 15 nations .

Bear in mind, I've only played 5 hours so far, but I like what I see in the early access version.

There will be a tutorial included in the release. the current game manual, is quite extensive - and is being added to, continuously.

There have been reports of crashes with the game by other ea adopters. To date, I have not experienced any. Performance does need to be tweaked though, espc. during the AI moves. Otherwise the game runs fine on a Windows 8.1 laptop

Early Access Score: 8/10

Can't recommend it yet.

It's a great game, it has many stuffs that Victoria should have, however, the lack of the editor and the continous crashes really made me come here and make a negative review.

Early Acess to me, is really different from Early Crashy Acess.

Let's see in some months

Great work guys. I cant wait to see future updates for this game. I wont lie i love these kinda games but i feel this game needs a tutorial. It was kinda mind blowing the amout of unites and resources to mange. but there was a menu that was easy to navagate interface. but i could not find out how to make alliances witch was a downfall. if you are going to buy this keep in mind its a time comsuming game with a small bug here or there. Its not a quick command and counqer game like i thought it was kinda going to be. by the way if you are a mac player this runs great on mac :)

Its a really good game for those who like turn based games. Resently a lot of new playable facions have come out and they are all really enjoyable to play. Even though the game is still in development it looks very promissing and i recommend you get it.

This game is basically a less complex version of paradox/supreme ruler games. IMO Paradox's Hearts of Iron does everything better and in a more realistic/complicated way. However, I find the making history series more fun than its competition simply because it takes away a lot of the unneeded complication while still making you feel like their is a large depth of choices to make. More importantly though, it takes away the huge micro managment nightmare of trying to control hundreds of units in hundreds of provinces that ultimately made me stop playing hearts of iron and supreme ruler. Here the combat may be less in depth, (your units are stacked and you only have a handful of units), but it plays much better and you don't have to give the AI control of your armies in order to avoid being overwhelmed.

Making history plays in turnbased rather than real time like its competition. I find it much more relaxing and easiear to play using the turn based formula. I also find that turn based flows more fluently than real time, as I found myself pausing constantly and missing things in the real time strategy games.

If your new to the series though I would recommend waiting for full release, as there is not a complete manual or encyclopedia and many of the critical game mechanics are completely unexplained, and very hard to figure out yourself. There is also issues with rebels and other game balance issues ATM. Personally I have gone back to playing making history 2 (which you should look into getting if your more interested in ww2 than ww1), while I wait for this one to be polished up.

Edit: Just to add that this game's dev team from what I have seen on the forums is very upstanding. They interact politely with the community, value feedback even if it's negative, and implement fixes based on feedback. Much better devs than what I have seen on a lot of other forums.

While i loved the first two and wanted a world war 1 game from Making history so badly honestly im a tad disappointed with this one i know there were alot of revolutions during the time period but honestly it seems to be the huge part of the gameplay and can get in the way of other plans to the point where it becomes total war with the rebels which keeps me from really getting into the game cause everytime i get near being able to invade a country an endless rebel war happens though i like the idea of having rebels uprise and would bring flavour to the gameplay it becomes rather a major annoyance then a cool feature i do reccomend this game but would like the rebels to be toned down and not to be a major blockade to a majority of the players plans


The Rebels are more tame but it seems that every time a nation declares war on you for the smallest thing it sets off a huge chain reaction of wars i want challenge but having Nations declare war on me for invading an attacking country when they have no land near them or treaties it becomes pure annoyance i want to love TGW like i loved the first two but with all these annoyances they take away what could be challenging and just try to put cheap reason for a world war i still want to Recommend this game but i recommend waiting for alot of things to be fixed but if you want to try it your self its still a worthy buy the Puppet system is better then ever with being able to pick the Religion Ideaology and even make up a name for the new state the Micromanaging is Perfect and keeps the game fresh better then the other two did

overall it is an ok game at this stage in the development. but when you dig deaper there is still much that needs to be worked on. for example much of your time is spent guessing on what a certain building or unit does because there is no encyclopedia at this point. and you find your self frustrated when trying to figure out why your colonial armys can not be instructed to do anything. or that the enemy A.I. strugles to create a solid defence. but all grievences set aside it is a game worth buying, provided that they fix these problems in the future.

As per traditon Muzzy lane has released an excellent game, the graphics are good, gameplay is amazing and attention to historical detail is amazing! Unfortunately there are still a few bugs but these are certain to be fixed in the near future. All in all i give this game 9.5 / 10 Have to leave room for improvement. Now back to invading America as the German Empire!

I enjoy this game if the developers keep listening then this game will be golden. I think that this game is very enjoyable but very complex and temperamental by design so it should be played by people who don't mind the fastest game speed being days to complete. Although I haven't completed a game because the developers keep updating before I can finish.

Seems very good far, the next thing to add if you ask me.. would be a peace system alike paradox's Europa Universalis with a lot of different peace deals, from small victories to force the enemy to maybe pay up in 20 coal each turn for 20 turns to fully annex them with a grand victory

This game is easily worth it's price several times over, one of the best grand strategy games I ever played, I just love how they have constructed the menu and all the tabs, it's all made easy and logic, everything is placed where it should for easy access to micro management, unlike other grand titles, the menu is often a real mess, you often need to be all over the place before you find what you are looking for and it's not uncomon you would have to study a tutorial for hours before you even know how to play the game, not in this game, it is easy and logic to get into and still it is very deep with a lot of micro management, that is one thing I really apprechiate with this game, I also apprechiate the dept of the political and interaction with other countrys, there is plenty you could do there, this is often left out in other titles, or are very simple, but I think this is one of the most fun part of grand strategy games, I also love the design of the game, I don't know which programing they used but all I can say it looks and feels more modern, the graphics even if it is less important in a game like this is nothing to complain about, the overall feeling of the game is smooth, at the current time this game is under developement, but it is fully playable, the only glitches I have notised it, when you end turn and all the countrys flags swish by, the nazy flag is in there, this is from the first world war, I don't think the nazis where even invented back then, it should come later in the game I think, and the other glitch or whatever is that the game respond very badly your mouse when you would like to look around at the map, the map sometimes doesn't follow and sometimes you must use the arrow keys because of that, but I have no doubt this will be fixed until release this developer have made great games in the past and they have all been great, so I fully recommend this game.

Has a lot of potention to become a great game. They've returned to their MH1/G roots, simplifying the economics system, making it a much more accessable part of the game, as well as adding new colonial features, policies, as well as all sorts of great map stuff. Worth picking up, especially now while it's cheaper. It'll also have amazing mod potential once the editor fully releases.

This might be changed once the game is released (in a few days possibly) but overall I would say the main strength of this game is the chance to play a grand strategy campaign of the Great War period without getting too bogged down with all the details that other games developers (eg Paradox) seem to require you to deal with. Here you can see the effects of your trade actions (unlike Victoria II), you can arrange development of factories and regions easily and effectively. You can control your troops arrange armies and carry out a war really easily. Its all addictive fun but there is no hastle. You get events like the sinking of the Titanic, there are loads of countries to play and the gamplay is smooth and turn generation very quick.

Downside would be graphics mainly - without AA enabled via your graphics card software the game looks jagged and rather pitiful. With AA on it looks quite smooth though, the shadows improve the sprites a lot compared to MH2 but the map is rather badly done IMO with jagged lines for province boundaries when you zoom in. But then sprites have well detailed constumes and authentic period looks. And you have separate artillery here unlike the Paradox games although the battles are not configurable or visible, apart from a flash to signal where they are. Battles are certainly better done in the Paradox games.

There presently seems to be an issue with lots of rebellions but this is likely to be fixed soon.

Cant comment on the AI or the mid/late gameplay yet.

Overall its a nice playable game that is a pleasant diversion for those of us who dont have months to sink into a single campaign and want to be able to pick up the game quickly. If you can put up with the graphics there is a lot of authentic historical events and variable gamplay here to keep you interested.

This game is awesome, at the moment you can play as germany, France, and a few others. as it is now i have been playing for over a couple of hours and its really good. If you like the previous making history games you will love this one. The game has been running really smooth and I havent experienced any bugs yet. There area few thing that havent been finished like casualties in battles show up for me as "XX" but so far its running really smooth and is a lot of fun I think you will be pleasently surprised. The game is a hudge overall from the previous making history's. You can really see this in the recuritment and development of infurstructure. Overall as a early access i give it buy as it runs smooth and delivers on the prmoises the dev's gave. Like I said only a few countires are playable, but more will come. only other issue i have experienced is for some reason AH will not deploy their troops to the russian border even though they have lost two provicnes so far. Many of their larger armies stay stationed in the center of the country or on the allied western border. Not sure why as Italy has helped me with France to the point that mainland france is all but one provience away from being defeated.
