The original Legion Arena and the Cult of Mithras expansion are forming up and marching towards retail

Matrix Games and Slitherine Strategies (www.slitherine.com) are pleased to announce that Legion Arena Gold is now available for purchase. Building off of the success from their individual releases, Legion Arena Gold combines the original real time strategy/role playing smash hit Legion Arena with its popular expansion pack, Cult of Mithras into one “Gold” pack.

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said, “I’ve been a fan of Legion Arena since their original releases so the opportunity to bring these great titles under the Matrix Games banner is particularly exciting for me. With the re-release of both these real time strategy titles into one pack, gamers can enjoy Slitherine’s fantastic products with the great gaming community you’ve come to expect from Matrix Games.”

 

JD McNeil from Slitherine Games included, “Publishing through Matrix Games has been a great experience thus far. The release of Legion Arena Gold is a win-win situation for both gamers and Slitherine/Matrix. Now players who are interested in picking up both Legion Arena and the expansion can get it at a lower price and with great ease. We at Slitherine are confident that the Gold version of Legion Arena will do wonders to create even more excitement about the series.”

 

Legion Arena Gold is an addicting blend of real time strategy with role playing. As the commander-in-chief of an ancient army, the player uses their tactical prowess to win battles on a 3D real time field and then use the experience and spoils of war to build a small band of warriors into the mightiest army in the ancient world.

 

Some features of Legion Arena Gold include:

 

  • Buy equipment and choose their skills. Over 100 skills to choose from!
  • Personalise the appearance of each squad by selecting their textures
  • Command vast armies in epic 3D battles
  • Earn experience and denari for your victories
  • Two campaign paths - play as Romans or Gauls. Get drawn into the story of the rise of Rome.
  • Over 20 unique unit types including Legionaries, Praetorians, Elephants and Naked Fanatics which can battle each other over the course of more than 100 scenarios
  • Special effects including water, particles, lighting & night battles, weather and grass
  • Detailed combat model designed by a double world wargaming champion.
  • Deploy your troops and issue orders before battle.
  • Real time control in battle using our innovative order time system
  • Every unit has strengths and weaknesses. Learn how to use your strengths and exploit your enemies weaknesses.
  • Real terrain effects - cavalry are weaker in woods, light infantry are weaker in the open.
  • Easy to learn, hard to master.

Command: Chains of War is Released!

Thursday, May 18, 2017

It’s 2018, the near future and the World is on the verge of a Third World War.

Tensions in the Korean peninsula region are erupting on a scale rarely seen before. Many countries have pursued particularly muscular policies in recent years, hardening a situation, ready to light the fuse at any moment.

China’s political elites are seeing the chance to fulfill their ambitions of a Chinese sphere of influence over the Pacific, and even if the United States are refocusing their military efforts in a revamped War on Terror, they haven’t left their interests in the region unprotected.

Now the question is not when, but who will be the first to strike.
