On top of that, an improved campaign map is also being shown, along with new building and technology trees including railways and naval bombardments. Brand new units and abilities will also added. On the land side of things, thirty nine new units are introduced including Gatling guns, US Marines and British Royal Marines. While, 10 new ship types will make their appearance, including Ironclad class battleships, steamers and torpedo boats, which a player can use in land battles to call in extra artillery strikes.
If that was not enough, there are three new agent types, four new historical scenarios, new siege-battle mechanics and a large but not yet detailed upgrade to multiplayer.
