But that’s not all: Through the completely new pet system, players will be able to add even more extra strength to their troops: For the first time in Terra Militaris, the expansion Firearms will allow virtual warlords to tame, summon and train mighty and ferocious battle creatures that will accompany them on the battlefield.
Furthermore, Firearm’s new crafting system adds smithing and cooking features to the game, and allows players to arm their troops with new weapons and armours. Keeping the troops well fed will grant additional bonuses.
With the expansion, building and research levels will be increased to 25, and the hero level cap will be set to 120. Firearms will also allow a faster era progression.
Building and researching will see an overhaul, too: Waiting times for building and completing researches will be replaced with a cool down feature. Training troops will be immediate.
