Just a heads up for people that don't read the AGEOD forum:
Birth of Rome (5 new scenarios) release on friday!! Along with the single scenario Cantabrian Wars that was only available to FX version buyers until now.
BIRTH OF ROME is the first of the expansion packs that the AJE team is preparing for this historical strategy title that should cover ultimately all the Roman era. It shall be available on January 2013, at the price of de 19,99 €. The AJE team is working intensely to allow you simulating the following new wars :
-The 3rd Samnite War opposing Rome and the Etruscan and Samnite tribes between 298 and 291 BC, that will bring Roman control of central Italy.
-The Senones War (284 to 282 BC), a violent Gallic tribe in Northern Italy at war against Rome. Victory against those powerful Celtic warriors allows the Romans to take their revenge against those who plundered Rome en 390 BC.
-Pyrrhic Victories (280 BC to 272 BC) where the Senate of Rome finally manages to capture Tarentum and southern Italt after having repulsed one of the greatest ancient warrior king, Pyrrhus of Epirus.
-The First Punic War, a very long campaign between 264 and 241 BC, pitting Rome versus Carthage for the control of Sicily. A balanced struggle, focusing on naval operations. A shorter version starts in 256 BC.
-The Mercenary War (241 BC to 238 BC), a fight between an exhausted Carthage and her own rebelled mercenaries in Africa. Not suited for sensitive minds…
BIRTH OF ROME requires ownership of the ALEA JACTA EST game, as it is not a standalone product.
