Sparta: Ancient Wars

"The ancient time where the Spartans were the leading faction at the Mediterranean Sea was a famous time. The battles between mighty tribes were fought with such an intense power, that unknown soldiers became heroes on the battlefield. Sparta ? Ancient Wars will bring this mighty time to new life, where each player will have the opportunity to bring his own tribe to health, fame and wealth. It is the first real time strategy game that will deliver never before seen stunning graphics, high level of detail, complete 3D gameplay, rich economics, no unit limitation, an own developed physics engine and many never before seen features to this genre. So watch out ? a new age will rise with Sparta ? Ancient Wars!

The main emphasis is on large-scaled battles and complex tactical manoeuvres. Additional to this, a new method of army equipment is represented in the game. Warriors can be equipped with weapons, shields, put on horses or on chariots and they can be given special abilities. The player can collect abandoned weapons after battles or import powerful weapons from other cultures to build more powerful and different special units. The forces of nature are very important, because Fire, Wind etc. will effect the whole environment. The Economic part includes control of labour force, construction of cities and resources collection. Cities can be upgraded (e.g. turned to fortresses), so Sparta offers every aspect RTS gamers like.

Historical correct Timeline

Sparta is based on the history of the ancient ages and their main nations. Spartans, Persians and Egyptians are fighting for influence around Little Asia, Europe and North Africa.

Sparta represents 3D strategy in real time, where the player will have to use each nation's powers to be superior over other competitors and build up a driving and ruling faction."
