Fornovo 1495 is the first title in the new Order of Arms game system.
The first game in the series presents the battle fought between the French Army of King Charles VIII, and the Condottieri forces of the League of Venice under the command of Francesco II Gonzaga of Mantua. The game features the Historical Battle as fought by Francesco Gonzaga across a rising Taro River, a free-set up version, and a what-if scenario that portrays the Italian fear of a French drive on Parma.
Order of Arms dynamically portrays battles from the Medieval and Renaissance Periods, from Hastings in 1066 to Pavia in 1525, a period that featured the mounted armored knight. Players assume the role of the army commander of a major armed force of the period, attempting to fulfill varying victory conditions through the use of the arms of the period including men-at-arms, both mounted and dismounted, infantry including archers, and when available, early firearms.
