Back to News Listing Tin Soldiers: Alexander The Great Goes Gold!

Type: News

Game of Alexander’s Campaigns Due For Early October Release Matrix Games and Koios Works (www.koiosworks.com) are pleased to announce that the innovative new wargame, Tin Soldiers: Alexander the Great, has Gone Gold and is due to release in Early October, 2004. Tin Soldiers: Alexander the Great™ is wargaming with a classic style. Easy to learn but difficult to master, it places you in the role of Alexander the Great during his conquest of the known world. Guide Alexander through his grand campaign from inheriting his father’s legacy at the battle of Thebes to his conquest of Darius III and the Persian Empire through his last great battle at the Hydaspes, in the heart of Asia against the Indian army of King Porus.

Designed to evoke the beauty of museum-quality miniatures on a professional tabletop battlefield, Tin Soldiers: Alexander the Great™ uses an innovative multi-phase turn-based system.  As you play, the campaign unfolds before you with cinematic cut-scenes and three dimensional panoramas of the battlefields.  Each battle is based on the historical terrain and troop placements, but the campaign allows you to make decisions in between battles on which units to reinforce, whether to recruit new units or replace commanders and how many of your resources to focus on training.

David Heath, Director of Operations for Matrix Games, said “Tin Soldiers: Alexander the Great has a winning combination of good design and great features.  It is easy to learn, fun to play and allows you to march along with Alexander through his conquests and his final destiny.  We think wargamers as well as light strategy gamers will enjoy this campaign game with an ancient flair.”

Tin Soldiers: Alexander the Great™ does not have a steep learning curve – to the contrary, it’s easy to pick up, fun to play and difficult to master. We believe that historical strategy gamers, miniatures gamers and fans of Alexander will be interested in this title for its value as a game and as a way to experience the campaigns of Alexander and test yourself against perhaps the highest of benchmarks in military history.

For those seeking a living opponent, Tin Soldiers: Alexander the Great™ includes support for multiplayer over the internet and local network (via TCP/IP).  Any of the campaign battles can be selected or players can choose one of the two special multi-player scenarios: Bactria and Elysium.

List of Features

  • Simultaneous Turn-Based
  • Reaction system to adjust strategy during execution
  • Visually stunning and historically accurate miniatures-oriented art for soldiers and units
  • 3-D historical battlefields
  • Grand Campaign follows Alexander’s conquests from Greece to India
