Kalypso Media Digital is pleased to announce the upcoming release of Hegemony Rome: The Rise of Caesar for Windows PC. Developed by Longbow Digital Arts, Hegemony Rome: The Rise of Caesar will challenge players’ strategic battlefield skills as they manage huge armies through the massive historical battles of first century BC. In this, the sequel to Hegemony Gold: Wars of Ancient Greece, players will wage war on battlefields beautifully rendered by an upgraded graphics engine as they strive to dominate the known world – via conquest, or by starving out their enemies.
Hegemony Rome: The Rise of Caesar takes you to the plains and forests of ancient Gaul where Julius Caesar wages a decade long war to subjugate the barbarian hordes. It will immerse you in history like no other real time strategy game ever before, forcing you to pay close attention to the changing seasons and rapidly changing military situation.
