RISE & FALL: CIVILIZATIONS ATWARTM is the first real-time strategy game to place players directly in the heart of combat as a heroic general fighting side-by-side with their troops. Players can completely command one of the four mightiest empires of the ancient world as in a traditional RTS, but can also use RISE & FALL'S innovative Hero Mode to enter the battlefield as one of history's eight greatest heroes, controlling the likes of Alexander the Great, Julius Caesar, Cleopatra and more, as they slash through the enemy ranks to turn the tide of battle.
- Powerful Civilizations
Choose from four of the ancient world's mightiest empires: Persia,
Greece, Egypt or Rome.
- Hero Mode
Engage in awe-inspiring feats of heroism by joining troops during
climactic battles, using an action/adventure game style third-person
perspective to personally impact the outcome. Control one of eight
unique Heroes each with special abilities and weapons: Julius
Caesar, Germanicus Caesar, Cleopatra, Ramses the Great, Sargon,
Nebuchadnezzar, Achilles and Alexander the Great.
- Naval Combat
RISE & FALL offers an unprecedented level of detail for naval combat,
which plays a large and vital role. Fight for control of the seas
by boarding and ramming enemy naval vessels using massive, accurately-
scaled biremes and triremes. Outfit warships with infantry,
archers, ballistae, or catapults- you decide what units to put on
- Realistic Units And Weapons
Enlist more than 80 unique units, including footmen, archers, cavalry,
siege and massive triremes. Use realistically-scaled siege towers,
ladders, and battering rams to annihilate city defenses and clear the
way for ground forces.
Up to eight players will battle it out across numerous multiplayer
game types, including a team-based mode where one player manages
resources while the other unleashes the full power of Hero
