Don’t worry, be happy

Many players complain that the Windows Defender detects the game launcher file as a virus. We have sent the game build to Microsoft for investigation. The answer came yesterday and it was: no malware detected.



The problem is due to outdated version of Windows Defender. Everyone who has encountered same problems with downloading and installing the game, needs to install Windows Updates. If for some reason you do not want to install updates, you need to add game folder and Steam download folder to Windows Defender exceptions( C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Battle of Empires 1914-1918
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\downloading). But we strongly recommend you to update the Windows.

Austria-Hungary campaign released!



The 99th anniversary of the end of the First World War is approaching. For this significant date we have prepared a release of the campaign, which tells how the Austro-Hungarian Empire fought and died during the Great War .


Soldiers of the empire sacrifiсed their lives for the Emperor, fighting on a huge front against all the Entente countries. The large population and developed industry, the help of a powerful ally, allowed to defend on the eastern front, actively advance in the Balkans and achieve successes in Italy.
In this campaign, you will go through the horrors of the siege of Przemyśl, bloody battles on Isonzo's banks, the chilling cold of Tyrol and the heat of the Romanian plains. For the King and the Emperor!


"A welcome addition to the game that tells the story of the Austria-Hungarian empire from the perspective of storyline characters belonging to different army branches. The boundaries of the Battle of Empires experience are pushed even further with eye-level cinematics, yet more new factions, diverse stories and innovative mission mechanics" (с) Cule, one of the testers of campaign.

Gas attacks, shrapnel shells, horses, involvement of first tanks and flamethrowers, and many other features of the First World War have been implemented in the game.
