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.

Wars of Napoleon New Feature: Nation Modifiers

Wednesday, November 11, 2015

To rule a Nation involved in over ten years of wars is not an easy task:you need always to adjust your priorities following unexpected events (or try to anticipate those events).

In Wars of Napoleon, you will be able to manage the reforms you need to keep your Country capable of facing multiple situations (from  the need to establish puppet kingdoms to draft more - inexperienced - soldiers).

Decide the priority of reforms your Nation will undergo and see how  they translate into National Modifiers. These national modifiers are shown visually for the first time in an Ageod game and it has never been so easy to see your Nation's strengths and weaknesses!
