'Imperiums: Greek Wars' Planning Rome vs. Carthage DLC For Spring 2022 - Screens & Trailer

Imperiums: Greek Wars is a combination of turn-based 4X and historical grand strategy with a mythological twist.

Inspired by Aggressors: Ancient Rome, Kube Games bring you a fresh look at a Greco-Persian world of schemers, warmongers, and ruthless politicians. This merciless world is enhanced by myths and stories about heroic deeds and hidden treasures as only the Greeks were able to imagine.

The game starts in 359BC when Philip II of Macedon takes the throne. Macedonia at the time is a backwater on the edge of the Hellenic world, but Philip is an ambitious man. He has a dream to become leader of the whole of Greece, a dream he will follow until his death...
Choose one of 30 playable factions ranging from mighty Sparta or Athens, ambitious Macedonia, slowly declining Achaemenid Empire and its power-hungry satrapies, to a number of smaller Greek city-states and groups of semi-nomadic societies living on the outskirts of the Hellenic world. Lead your nation to glory if you can...

Your task is to do more than survive. You are divine ruler, supreme military commander and political leader who seeks glory and prosperity for all your subjects. Lead them to magnificent victories, manage the economy on all levels, and provide successful livelihoods as well as stable and just government.

It is not a task for the weak; all problems rest upon your shoulders; every crisis is a test of your political and military prowess. Decisiveness, tactical thinking, political shrewdness, and above all an adventurous spirit is what will cause one person to stand out - to rise as a star shining through the darkness of millennia to come.

In the previous campaigns of the Imperiums series (Imperiums: Greek Wars and Imperiums: Age of Alexander) you could relive the rise of ancient Macedon during the reign of Philip II and his son Alexander the Great. However, the political map of the Mediterranean region changed drastically after the death of Alexander and the new DLC Imperiums: Rome vs Carthage will take you right into the maelstrom of that turbulent era.

The DLC covers one of the most interesting periods of our history, the rise of the Roman Republic in 3rd century BCE. The Roman war with the neighboring Samnites and Etruscans for dominance was only one of the conflicts that shaped the future of Europe. Rome challenging the powerful Carthage, the decline of the successor states left after the breakdown of the Alexandrian Empire in Asia and Greece, or the migration of nomadic tribes towards more hospitable regions, are all major events that changed the map of Mediterranean for ever.

Now however you can steer the wheel of history in a different direction, leading any of the 25 playable factions. A huge map with 5000 tiles and a number of new mechanics ensures many hours of fun and excitement.

New features include migrating tribes pressing on the borders of the civilized world, specific historical events, multiturn events (e.g. plague outbreaks, rebellions) and so called mandatory objectives.

Developer Kube Games is also running a time-limited discount of the base game now that you can take advantage of!

The Greco-Persian world of Imperiums is a faithful representation of historical reality, political relations, animosities and ambitions. Take a unique opportunity to experience on your own shoulders the weight of responsibility as the chosen one. As leader you can follow your own path or take advice and guidance from dozens of nation-specific objectives.

Key Features:

  • Experience the ancient Greek world in such a detail as never before.
  • Explore the ancient world and open it up to your people. Survive, expand, conquer... and win!
  • Myths and Legends: Ancient people believed in myth and legend; it was part of their reality. Those adventurous enough can send their generals in the footsteps of ancient heroes to find the Golden Fleece or untie the Gordian Knot. Unveil the truth of some of the stories and myths of the Greek world.
  • Face the opponents: Your opponents will be unforgiving, but if you want more of human slyness and unexpected turns, join a multiplayer game and challenge other players in a race to victory!
  • New worlds: The universe of Imperiums offers an endless number of realms. Imagine a world to your liking and let us bring it to you. Whatever your choice, enter with a clear mind and prove that you can not only survive but build an empire worthy of the title.
    Take advantage of the imagination of others and explore worlds they created. Go even a step further, let yourself be inspired as creator whose ideas shape others’ worlds.
  • Learn with ease: It is not shameful to take advice from time to time. You’re not alone in this cruel world; there is always guidance to explain, provide context, and offer recommendations. Let yourself be guided by your intuition and logic, and you will soon become a master.

Imperiums: Greek Wars is available for PC (Steam).
