Type: Press Release

 

Matrix Games, Slitherine (www.slitherine.com), and AGEOD (www.ageod.com/en/) are excited to announce the upcoming release of the Roman grand strategy game Alea Jacta Est. Focusing on the Roman Civil Wars from the 1st century BC to 3rd century AD, Alea Jacta Est is the first PC game to bring a highly authentic and realistic strategic experience of this tumultuous time period to players.  Alea Jacta Est will release on the Matrix Games and Slitherine online stores next week.

Alea Jacta Est offers a wide variety of scenarios, from the civil war between Marius and Sulla (and Mithridate of Pontus) from 87 to 82 BC, to the advent of Septimius Severus from 193 to 198 AD. An incredible amount of detail and historical accuracy has been packed into Alea Jacta Est from terrain to units to even the dilemmas and troubles the leaders of Rome actually faced hundreds of years ago. Using the successful and popular AGE engine, Alea Jacta Est will benefit from the ease of the team to create new mods, events, scenarios and more!

The whole of Europe, Northern Africa and the Near East is the battlefield in which the players must carve out. Featuring more than 2800 regions to conquer, rule, and fight over, hundreds of historical leaders,  units and events, five large campaigns, and multiplayer with up to three players in the same game, Alea Jacta Est definitely is putting the “grand” in grand strategy gaming!

Pandora: Eclipse of Nashira gets release date

Thursday, August 28, 2014

Since the release of Pandora: First Contact in late 2013, developers from Proxy Studios have been carefully collecting players’ feedback and thinking about the pros and cons that were highlighted by the community. At the core of this debate were requests about the diversity in this 4X sci-fi game, and the richness of the diplomatic relations between the factions. As a result the team has been working hard to make the game deeper and released several patches and a free expansion – Return of Messari – that went in this direction, and brought brand new content with a game changer that ensured fun and challenge for the late game.
