Deeper tactics

An expanded tactical system rewards battlefield maneuvers like flanking, charging, camping and foraging, and an all new recruits resource makes the results of each battle more significant than ever.

Starve your enemies

Siege and starve the enemy by cutting their supply lines and burning their crops, all the while building and protecting your own supply network to support your expanding empire. With new supply line upgrades, use your extra resources to push supplies through a narrow mountain pass or feed a vast host in the remote Persian hills.

Three historical campaigns

In-game pedia and 200+ historical objectives recreate the rise of the Macedonian empire and two new campaigns let you play as bitter enemies Athens and Sparta during the brutal Peloponnesian War.

Zoom seamlessly

Smoothly transition at any time between the detailed 3D world and the stylized board-game map while maintaining complete control over your empire.

No barriers, no limits

In the epic new sandbox mode, conquer the ancient Greek world as any one of the 26 factions ranging from the isolated island of Crete to the mighty Persian empire.

Pause the action, re-think your strategy

Stop the action anytime to inspect your troops, plot manoeuvres and issue orders. Maintain full control over your empire while paused so success depends on strategy not reflexes.

Coerce, intimidate, and befriend

A brand new diplomacy engine tracks hostility and intimidation between factions allowing you to forge truces and alliances to aid your growing empire. Pay off larger factions to take pressure off your borders or position your army to intimidate weaker factions into offering you tribute.

Experience every facet of war

Campaign across a continuous satellite-accurate map of ancient Greece encountering the full range of warfare from reconnaissance and raids to field battles and mountain blockades.

Intuitive and precise controls

Drag, rotate, resize and snap together unit formations to precisely control battlefield tactics in paused or real-time. Preview all movement paths before you issue your orders and quickly plot waypoints for easy flanking and pincer manoeuvres.

Subjugate your enemy

Chase down and capture routed enemy units to create slave gangs to work your mines or build your forts. But don't leave them unguarded or they could rebel and wreak havoc in your empire's heartland!

Conquer the seas

Build a fleet of triremes to protect your coastlines, raid enemy merchants, or drop an army at your enemy's backdoor.
