The wait is over! Hegemony Gold: Wars of Ancient Greece is now available. Head over to the Hegemony page to buy it now for only $29.99, or only $9.99 if you purchased Hegemony: Philip of Macedon.

For those of you who haven't been following the development of Hegemony Gold, it's an upgraded and expanded version of Hegemony that adds all sorts of goodies, including:

* Two new campaigns allowing you to play as Sparta and Athens during the Peloponnesian War.
* A sandbox mode allowing you to play any of the 26 factions in the game.
* A new diplomacy system allowing you to create truces and alliances with other factions.
* An expanded tactical system that rewards you for manoeuvres like flanking and charging.
* A new population system that emphasizes the significance of each battle.

Thanks to all the beta testers who helped test the game, and to the various people whom we talked to during our convention tour. Hegemony Gold would never have happened without you!

Can we use our keys for Gold to unlock the game on Steam, complete with automatic updates and everything, once it's available there? I don't mean just adding the game to our library through a shortcut.

@Onyx: Unfortunately, the game isn't going to be available on Steam for a while.
@Ludvig: If you bought it on Steam, you can register your copy here, and then you'll be eligible for the cheaper upgrade. It was a free upgrade during the beta, but that offer expired in December.

I think you may have misunderstood me. I'm asking if, when it does become available on Steam, we can unlock Gold on Steam as a full game using the upgrade key we would get now, allowing for redownloading and auto-updates from Steam. Call me lazy, but I like having all my games in one place with updates taken care of automatically. If it can be, I'd happily buy it now and unlock it whenever it's available. If not, I may hold out for Gold until it's available on Steam.

Come to think of it, how will the upgrade work on Steam? Will we just have to come here if we want the $10 price? (I can't recall if this was answered somewhere before)

@arti6753: Yep, our store supports PayPal.
@Onyx: I'm afraid any details on Steam at this point would be purely theoretical.

Oh, I see. Thanks anyway. I do hope it'll be unlockable on Steam in the future though.

GK2UnicodeException - an error occured while running Hegemony. Excepted 10xxxxxx while parsing UTF8 char.

My first suggestion would be to try and reinstall the game as it sounds like something might be corrupted. You can also send us a dump file and we can take a look at it. You should be prompted to save a dump file after the error message. You can always e-mail dump files to rob@longbowgames.com

id like to add my congrats and thanks to all at LDA on the release of Gold. i wish u every success with it and hope it secures LDAs future and ensures that we, the players, get a supply of more outstanding games for many years to come.
i'm proud to have been a beta tester and in some small way contributed to the finished product. id like to thank Rob in particular for his hard work and his willingness to listen to the testers and get into sometimes quite detailed discussions of various game aspects.
And for the record, only played a few hours of the final release so far but loving it, and loving the changes since the last beta.
