Alea Jacta Est - Parthian Wars by Ageod (www.ageod.com), the Strategy game that let you face Ancient Rome’ nemesis in the Middle East, is now available! 

 

The Parthians were a fierce people equipped with fast horse archers and heavily armed knights or cataphracts. The Parthian Empire inflicted one of the worst defeats in Roman History. Choose to battle this threat or side with it to fight for freedom from the Roman Empire.

Parthian Wars is a turn based regional game with an emphasis on playability and historical accuracy. It is built on the renowned AGE game engine that makes it easy to learn yet hard to master.

The game features a map which covers the entire ancient Middle East, from Byzantium to the wild mountains of Persia and the Caucasus in the north, and the Arabian deserts and Persian Gulf in the south.


There are 4 historical scenarios and an hypothetical one:

·         The Carrhae Campaign 53BC
This scenario is about the attempt by the wealthy and ambitious Roman Triumvir Crassus to conquer the Parthian Empire in 53BC, and the ensuing events until the start of the Roman Civil War between Caesar and Pompeius in 50 BC.

·         “What if” Caesar’s Revenge 44 BC
This scenario is an hypothetical situation which simulates the campaign that Caesar had planned against the Parthians, before his assassination during the Ides of March 44 BC. 

·         Marcus Antonius 40 BC
This scenario covers the great Parthian offensive against the Roman East at the time of Marcus Antonius in 40 BC, and Rome's counter-offensive led by Ventidius Bassus. 

·         Traianus Imperator 114 AD
This scenario covers the great war led by Emperor Trajan against Parthia and Armenia in 114AD, with the aim of finally crushing and annexing both nations.

·         Severus Strikes Back 197 AD
This scenario covers the Parthian offensive in the East while a civil war between Septimius Severus and Clodius Albinus takes place in the West, and in the second stage a violent counterstrike by Severus in 197 AD that led him far into the heart of Mesopotamia
