Hannibal: Terror of Rome rilasciato

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

http://www.matrixgames.com/news/1450/Hannibal:.Terror.of.Rome.Released!

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.

Due DLC per Alea Jacta Est

Sul sito matrix sono state rilasciate le due mini dlc per Alea Jacta Est:

The Cantabrian Wars, che parla delle campagne di Augusto nel nord della Spagna alla fine del I secolo avanti Cristo.  http://matrixgames.com/products/491/details/Alea.Jacta.Est-.The.Cantabrian.Wars.-.29BC

The Spartacus Revolt che appunto tratta della guerra servile contro Spartaco. http://matrixgames.com/products/492/details/Alea.Jacta.Est-.The.Spartacus.Revolt..73.BC

mercoledì 30 gennaio 2013

Birth of Rome disponibile sul sito Matrix

La nuova espansione per Alea Jacta Est è disponibile sul sito Matrix Games. Contiene anche la precedente campagna, Cantabrian Wars. E' stato rilasciato in formato stand-alone, così non richiedo il possesso del precedente gioco.

Ecco l'annuncio:

http://www.matrixgames.com/products/460/details/Birth.of.Rome

A great new grand strategy game set during the wars of Early Roman Republic is here!

Birth of Rome covers the important and epic wars that led the Roman republic to unify Italy, then defeat Carthage in Sicily. Relive the first conquests of the Roman consuls as they face powerful and determined opponents such as Pyrrhus of Epirus or Hanibal Barca of Carthage. Don’t let history write your destiny, it is completely up to you on how to handle the situation, or try your hand at rewriting history as Rome’s enemies.

Birth of Rome offers a level of historical accuracy and detail never reached before in a video game. Birth of Rome is a true simulation where players are challenged to create armies and fleets, organize and maneuver them, sustain and reinforce them. All the time taking into account military, economic, political and diplomatic parameters.



Scenarios:
The 3rd Samnite War opposing Rome and the Etruscan are the Samnite tribes between 298 and 291 BC, that will bring Rome control of central Italy.
The Senones War (284 to 282 BC), a violent Gallic tribe in Northern Italy at war with Rome. Victory against these powerful Celtic warriors allows the Romans to take their revenge against those who plundered Rome in 390 BC.
Pyrrhic Victories (280 BC to 272 BC) where the Senate of Rome finally manages to capture Tarentum and southern Italy after repulsing one of the greatest ancient warrior kings, Pyrrhus of Epirus.
The First Punic War, a very long campaign between 264 and 241 BC, pitting Rome against Carthage for the control of Sicily. A balanced struggle, focusing on naval operations. A shorter version starts in 256 BC.
The Mercenary War (241 BC to 238 BC), a fight between an exhausted Carthage and her own rebellious mercenaries in Africa.

Annunciato Alea Jacta Est Birth of Rome


E' stata annunciata la nuova espansione per Alea Jacta Est, che stavolta si concentrerà sulle guerre precedenti al Seconda Guerra Punica. Ecco il testo dell'annuncio (in francese):



L’essor de la République romaine

« BIRTH OF ROME » (BOR) retrace les premiers conflits épiques qui permirent à la toute jeune république romaine d’unifier l’Italie et de vaincre Carthage en Sicile, avec 5 scénarios différents inclus.

Première extension du jeu « ALEA JACTA EST » d’AGEOD, développeur français de jeux vidéos historiques, BOR sortira pour les fêtes de fin d’année, le 20 décembre 2012.

Où comment revivre les premières conquêtes des consuls de Rome, face à des adversaires aussi puissants et déterminés que Pyrrhus d’Epire ou encore Hamilcar Barca, entre 295 à 238 avant J.C. Le contrôle des adversaires de Rome est également possible.

BIRTH OF ROME est la première des nombreuses extensions prévues pour le premier jeu de simulation historique PC sur la globalité de l’Antiquité romaine, et sera disponible à partir du 20 décembre 2012, au prix de 19,99 €.

Réalisé par l’équipe francophone d’AJE, BIRTH OF ROME permet de simuler les conflits :
La 3ème guerre samnite opposant Rome et les tribus samnites et étrusques entre 298 et 291 avant J.C, qui mènera au contrôle romain de l’Italie centrale.
La guerre des Sénons (-284 -282), entre cette violente tribu celte et Rome, cette dernière prenant finalement sa revanche contre les Gaulois qui ravagèrent Rome en -390.
Les guerres de Pyrrhus (-280 – 272) où le Sénat de Rome réussira à s’emparer de Tarente après avoir repoussé l’un des plus grands capitaines de son temps, le roi Pyrrhus !
La première guerre punique, campagne fleuve entre -264 et -241, ou Rome affrontera pour le contrôle de la Sicile la toute puissante cité de Carthage dans un duel équilibré. Le scénario peut commencer plus tard en 256, pour raccourcir la campagne.
La guerre inexpiable (-241-238), que devra finalement livrer Carthage épuisée à ses propres mercenaires rebellés en Afrique. Un scénario à déconseiller aux âmes sensibles…

BIRTH OF ROME propose un niveau de détail et de fidélité historique inédit pour un jeu vidéo. Il s’agit d’une véritable simulation où le joueur se voit directement confronté aux dilemmes et aux défis des grands capitaines de l’époque. Comment construire et payer ses armées et ses flottes, les organiser, les entretenir, les manœuvrer, en fonction des données militaires, économiques, mais aussi politiques, car les voisins de Rome ne demeurent pas inactifs et peuvent même participer au conflit ou encore en profiter… Cet opus met en avant l’importance des flottes de guerre, essentielles pour s’assurer la maîtrise des mers et le ravitaillement par mer des cités côtières.

Le jeu est basé sur le mode AGE, à l’origine des autres jeux de la gamme, avec un système organisé en tour par tour, un tour équivalent à un mois.

La carte se concentre ici sur l’Italie, l’Afrique du nord et le bassin méditerranéen occidental, avec les cités, mines, routes, fortifications, reliefs, royaumes, tribus… de l’époque.

Des centaines de leaders historiques, d’unités, d’options et d’événements (réels ou hypothétiques), cinq campagnes allant de -298 à -238, des centaines d’heures de jeu contre la machine, ou la possibilité de jouer par Email contre un autre joueur.

BIRTH OF ROME nécessite le jeu ALEA JACTA EST pour être joué. Ce dernier regroupe l’ensemble des systèmes de base sur lesquels BOR s’appuie.

Après la sortie de BOR, la deuxième extension sera basée sur les séculaires guerres parthiques, entre Rome et l’empire des Parthes en Orient, prévu au printemps 2013.

L’objectif final étant de recréer l’intégralité des conflits de l’époque romaine, des origines à sa chute.

A l’instar des autres jeux de la gamme, BOR bénéficiera d’un suivi permanent, permettant d’améliorer et de développer sans cesse de nouveaux mods, événements, graphismes…
