Hannibal: Terror of Rome rilasciato

E' stata rilasciata la nuova DLC per Alea Jacta Est, Hannibal: Terror of Rome!

Hannibal: Terror of Rome is a true simulation that puts you in the place of the main commanders of the Ancient World. You will be in charge of building, managing, organizing and maneuvering armies, whilst taking into account the economic, military and political situation. The game is built on the renowned AGE engine and offers a comprehensive level of detail and historical accuracy.

The game features five historical scenarios:

The First Illyrian War(230-228 BC) sees Rome opposing the aggressive Illyrian pirates and the Greek cities of the South in the Adriatic Sea. To contain the pirate’s activity, military forces were sent by the Achaean League and even Rome. For the first time the Roman consuls focus on the East.

The Cisalpine War(225-222 BC) confronts Rome with a ferocious Celtic tribe. It’s time for revenge as these Gallic warriors sacked Rome in 390 BC.

The Second Punic War(219-201 BC) is a major campaign that starts even before the clash between Rome and Carthage; with Roman legions fighting in the Second Illyrian War, and Carthage finishing its conquest of Hispania…

Cannae(216-201 BC) begins with panic in the Roman army after its catastrophic defeat at the Battle of Cannae. The scenario starts with the withdrawal of Syracuse, Capua and Taranto from the war in Italy. The situation is critical!

Scipio Africanus (211-201 BC) narrates the Spanish campaigns of the best Roman general of the war, and his final fight against Hannibal in Africa.

Note this is a stand-alone game that does not require the Alea Jacta Est base game to play.

Brother against Brother – The Drawing of the Sword nuovi screenshots

Rilasciate nuove immagini di Brother against Brother – The Drawing of the Sword, nuovo gioco seguito ideale di Forge of Freedom.

Brother Against Brother” is a two-player, “IgoUgo” series devoted to battles of the American Civil War, with the Union and Confederate armies represented at the regimental level. Each release will feature 3-5 thematically related battles.

The first release, “Brother Against Brother: The Drawing of the Sword,” will be devoted to the opening battles of the war: the first major battles of 1861 in both the eastern and western theaters (1st Bull Run and Wilson’s Creek), and the first of 1862 in each theater (Mill Springs and Williamsburg).

“Brother Against Brother” will be noteworthy for the scrupulous attention to detail in the preparation of maps and orders of battles, both aspects of the project involving hundreds of hours of primary research; for an emphasis on command-and-control through a novel system that uses the historical abilities of generals and subordinate officers to determine the success of individual units, brigades, divisions, corps, and whole armies at engaging in particular movement-, attack-, or defense-related activities; for highly complex battlefields with two dozen terrain types and features, drawn at a superior level, and at scales as large as 50 square miles; for units that accurately reflect not only their strength, but degree of training, weapons, and in many cases the special qualities that made them famous; and, for numerous special features intended to enhance the game’s immersive nature, some not previously employed in any other computer game.

Providing a range of historical and alternative-history scenarios, “Brother Against Brother” will permit players to endlessly refight the major battles of the Civil War: hotseat, against the AI, or via PBEM.
