Don't just make history - guide it! Take the reins of a developing civilisation, choosing the resources and development paths that will lead to the fastest expansion, as you claim and defend territory on a map forging an empire that eventually encompasses whole continents.
In Rise of Empires, play is divided into three eras. Choices made early in the era are repeated later, so your decisions must have both short-term and long-term benefits to be successful. This process requires tough decision-making and promotes an atmosphere with nail-biting suspense. Victory points are rewarded for building cities, having an empire, for progress in science and for trading goods.
Rise of Empires breathes new life into the civilisation games genre! Balance gold and food, war and agriculture, territory and technology to forge an empire that is destined to rise above all other nations.
