Gates of Troy add-on released for Spartans

GATES OF TROY is a Trojan themed expansion pack for SPARTAN, the award
winning turn-based strategy game from Slitherine Software. Slitherine have
been secretly working on GATES OF TROY for months and are now finally ready
to announce it to the strategy gaming world. Available on PC CD ROM.

It includes 17 new heroes ranging from Achilles and Hektor in the Trojan
Wars to Leonidas & Demophilus in the pass of Thermopylae. Play as Achilles
with his Myrmidon warriors, or maybe you prefer Odysseus or Hektor? Control
vast armies of Trojans and Greeks and lay siege to the most powerful city of
its time – Troy!

Take command of Leonidas and his 300 Spartans against the mighty Persian
horde. The pass of Thermopylae has been re-created on a one for one scale
with 300 Spartans, 700 Thespian allies under Demophilus & 400 unreliable
Thebans who really didn’t want to be there – and can you blame them! This
small force stands against the might of the Persian army with wave upon wave
of increasingly powerful troops hitting your lines until the mighty
Immortals arrive. Xerxes launches attack after attack from his inexhaustible
horde and your objective is just to hold the pass long enough for Greece to
muster her forces.

The expansion pack includes 6 new historically accurate campaigns : The Trojan Wars The pass of Thermopylae Greek Colonization Pre-Historic Greece The Ionian Revolt Grand Campaign with Rome & Persia
