Back to News Listing Hannibal Free Demo and First Update Now Available

Posted: Friday, October 1, 2010 by Sean Drummy

Type: Press Release

Newcomers get a playable demo while Hannibal veterans get an update!

Matrix Games and Forced March Games (www.forcedmarchgames.com) are pleased to announce the release of a free playable demo as well as the 1.01 comprehensive update for Hannibal: Rome and Carthage in the Second Punic War!

The new free playable demo gives prospective commanders of Hannibal’s mighty army the ability to play through all the tutorials and the first four turns of the campaign. In addition, the full in-game strategy guide is available for perusal along with all the improvements available in the new update. The 1.0.1 tweaks autosaves to take place on every turn and fixes the issues reported since release, including a few rare crashes. Get the demo and the update from the Hannibal downloads page.

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “Hannibal: Rome and Carthage is truly a unique game so it makes sense for us to give gamers a chance to try the game out before deciding to pick up their shield and spear and march on Rome. Apart from the polished gameplay and immersive art and sound, the cunning and merciless AI will require your best effort if you want to see Rome in ruins!”

Hannibal: Rome and Carthage in the Second Punic Waris a new and innovative turn-based strategy game that puts you in command of the Carthaginian military during a period of total war over land and sea with the young Roman Republic. With this military juggernaut of the ancient world at your disposal, you will vie for control over Italy, Carthage, Spain and the Mediterranean Sea using a combination of strategic political maneuvering and sheer tactical skill both on land and sea.

Play consists of two layers; the first is a strategic layer where you must prudently steer your forces to the destruction of Rome’s army and the ultimate destruction of the Republic and city itself. At your disposal are a variety of unit types and historical commanders from which to form your armies. On the tactical scale, when meeting the enemy in battle, skilled leadership and a knack for war come into play as you use a simple but engaging battle system to best your opponents. Hannibal features truly unique historically themed artwork in nearly all aspects of the game. This is coupled with loads of high quality, ancient period music to make for an immersive and wholly enjoyable experience!

The update is comprehensive and will bring all previous version of Hannibal to version 1.01. Get the update from the product page.
