Rise and glory of ancient empires is a half turn-based, half real-time strategy game involving ancient civilizations. It's projected to be developed and published by Empire Entertainment and released on all PC systems.

It's projected to have a DLC bundle pack series and 4 game expansions:

  • Megalos: Set in Ancient Greece and India, from the first inhabitants of Hellas to Alexander's mighty empire, plus the greatest dynasties in India.
  • S.P.Q.R.: Set in Ancient Rome, from the fall of Tarquinius the Proud to the glory of Marcus Aurelius.
  • Children of the Dragon: Set in Ancient China, Japan and Korea, from the Xia, Shang, Zhou, Qin and Han dynasties in China to the Yamato period in Japan.
  • Attila: Set in the Roman Empire's last moments, from the rise of the Huns and the overrunning of the barbarian invasion to the Frankish Kingdom which brought the birth of modern France.

All of this, obviously, brings out a Complete Edition.

It's also projected to be released a new Emperor Edition, which includes the original game, all of its expansions and a new bundle pack, including new fictional campaigns.

The game is mainly divided in two phases: campaign and battle.

Campaign phase

In the campaign phase, the player faces dozens of playable and unplayable factions, barbarian hordes, rebel hordes and even the Sea Peoples (Shadarna, Lukka...). Each turn on the campaign dures a month, which means that a year dures 12 turns. It is also fundamental to manage cities and make sure their happiness, production and security are well balanced. There are 9 types of resources:

  • Food: It's produced in farms and counters droughts.
  • Bricks: They're produced in reed beds and are useful in buildings construction.
  • Wood: It's produced in mills and it's used in skirmishing and archer units.
  • Gold: It's produced in mines and it's useful in trade.
  • Copper: It's produced in excavations and mines and it's spent in military units, mostly infantry.
  • Tin: It's produced in mines and excavations and it's spent in recruiting military units.
  • Horses: They're produced in paddocks and are used to recruit any cavalry unit.
  • Gems: They're produced in excavations and are used in building advanced structures.
  • Incense: It's produced in proper collectors and farms and is used in religious buildings.

The player can build barracks (divided in infantry barracks, skirmisher barracks, cavalry stables or onager workshops), walls, sanitary buildings, entertaining buildings, security buildings, docks, temples and shrines (dedicated to a number of Gods ranging from 3 to 5 and all ranging from the different civilizations and factions), blacksmiths, walls, markets or academies (as in research buildings), or even Wonders. The majority of all buildings, mostly the ones which produce resources, but except for docks, barracks, walls and some other buildings, need workers, symbolized by little white person-shaped figures. Each of those "figures" can be assigned to any building that requires workers. To have a new worker in the city, the player must wait a certain number of turns depending on the population growth of the city; that factor, howerer, can be improved by building food-production and sanitary constructions. It is worth remembering that there are cities that produce different resources, and not every city produce all resources. All cities can produce Food and Bricks, but also a different number of other resources (for example, aside for the fact that all cities produce Food and Bricks, the player can control a city that produces only copper, another that produces only horses, another that produces only gems and gold and another that produces only wood.).

Different military units have different recruiting costs, maintenance costs, hitpoints, unit numbers or special abilities (Sapping, which is the ability of digging on the ground to facilitate a siege; War Cries, which boostes their attacks, defences and movement and attack speed; Cantabrian Circle, which can be useful as cavalry archers can run around an enemy army and shoot arrows to confuse them...)

Also, any single settlement can evolute separately from a single campment to a village, to a town, to a city and finally to a metropolis. When a settlement has a university built, the player can recruit diplomats so they can talk to other factions in game. A city adds the availability to train diplomats to become spies that get knowledge on enemy settlements and armies, or assassins, who can assassinate enemy generals and captains or sabotate buildings, as well as the factions' economy or happiness. A metropolis, last but not least, allows the construction of a Wonder, a building that improves happiness and productivity in all the empire, buildings that can be build just once in a game, and just one per city/metropolis.

In short, here are all factors in the city:

  • Happiness: Is improved by building temples, regulating work rate, salaries and food consumption at the Empire Overview, and garrisoning enough troops.
  • Production: Improves by building resource production buildings.
  • Health: Improves by building sanitary costructions, for example doctors and clinics.
  • Income: Improves by building trade buildings, such as markets, bazaars and harbour markets.

Every 5 years (60 turns), a new report will indicate a Top 10 faction list in termns of the Strongest, Richest, Largest or Most Advanced faction in the campaign.

Needless to say, various event can happen randomily in the game: they can range between earthquakes, floods, eclipses, fires, thefts, religious unrests, abusive governors, sandstorms or volcano eruptions, to cult improvements, bonus resources, greening of the deserts, new gods or even new units.


You can press F4 to open the Diplomacy Overview screen. Here, you can see all the factions still in game and their relations with whoever (including the playing faction).

Diplomacy options include:

  • Alliance Pact
  • Peace Treaty
  • War Declaration
  • Trade Agreement
  • Payments (Offer / Request)
  • Tribute (Offer / Request)
  • War Joining (Offer / Request)
  • Map Information
  • Military Access
  • Vassallage

The player can recruit a diplomat in the city, and then send him to another empire as an ambasseur. The more a diplomat completes missions, the more he gains experience and levels. As the diplomat progresses, he can be assigned to a new series on missions, as well as being capable to improve relations with other empires and improving chances to success on offerings, requests and treaties.

Empire Overview

You can press F5 to open the Empire Overview screen, where you can see all the cities you own, their current happiness, production and current construction and recruitment queue.

Here, you can also manage your empire with three slides:

  • Food consumption: Increases the quantity of food the people may eat in all cities. Increases happiness but can be dangerous for food income.
  • Work rate: Increases the production rate in all cities. Can have negative effect on global happiness.
  • Salaries: Increases the payments to all workers in the cities. Improves happiness but has negative effects on gold income.

Battle phase

Obviously, battle happens when two enemy armies clash each other. Before the battle phase, the player, whenever it's attacking or defending, has three choices: play the battle personally, auto-finish the battle or retreating (howerer, this third option is unavailable when the player is defending a settlement against a siege).

In Custom Battle mode, the player can choose the different victory conditions, the terrain, the current hour, the time limit and more.

  • Victory conditions:
    • Last Man Standing (only in open field)
    • Point resolution (only in open field)
    • Siege (only in settlements)
  • Time limit:
    • Unlimited
    • 30 minutes
    • 45 minutes
    • 60 minutes
  • Hour:
    • Sunrise
    • Morning
    • Afternoon
    • Sunset
    • Night
  • Climate:
    • Sunny
    • Light rain
    • Heavy rain
    • Fog
    • Stormy rain
    • Snow (only in stages set in mountains)

Victory conditions

The player can also choose a winning condition between:

  • Conquer all cities on the map;
  • Conquer 50 cities on the map;
  • Conquer 100 cities on the map;
  • Conquer a certain number of cities and destroy at least one or more specific factions / build a specific wonder (for example, Upper Egypt must defeat the factions of Khemet, Lower Egypt and Lower Nubia, conquer at least 50 cities and build the Great Pyramid and the Sphinx; Babylon, instead, must destroy Ur, Lagash, Elam, the Kassite, the Guti and Assyria, conquer at least 75 cities and build the Hanging Gardens and the Tower of Babel.).

At the end of any game, the game will structurate a complete synthesis of the whole game, with the map progresses, the timeline progresses and the history progresses, which explain the battles in major interests (called Major Battle), the cities conquered, the faction that has been destroyed and the Wonders that have been built.

Family tree

Each faction, be it playable or not, has a family tree, which constitutes the heirtage of the faction itself. When a Faction Leader dies, his Heir claims his place and becomes the new Faction Leader. If, once the Faction Leader is dead, there are no more Heirs ready to take the throne, the faction is directly eliminated.

Howerer, there is also the chance that a family member of a faction can betray the faction itself, as each family member (except the Faction Leader) possesses a parameter called Loyalty, which indicates (of course) how much the character is loyal to the faction. The lower it is, the higher the chances he defects the faction and becomes a rebel character. All characters can die through natural causes, in battle (if they are Generals/Family Members), through malaria/plague or during a disaster (fire, flood, earthquake, famine...)


Also, when the Capital reaches the Metropolis status and has all Barracks built at the maximum level, the player can recruit Heroes, historical figures that can be integrated in the army and the family tree. Those characters, specific to each civilization and faction, possess extraordinary abilities and traits, and can turn the tide of any battle with their single presence. The player must, howerer, assure they keep living until at least a natural death, since they can be killed in battle as well. They have the Loyalty parameter always at maximum, and despite, like a familiar, can be integrated in the Family Tree and even become Faction Leader, they still cannot betray their own faction.

All faction can research technologies to improve their gaming experience. Howerer, since all playable faction have different starting positions, the player may variate their scientific objectives.

How to research technologies: Each city possessed adds one research point. Those research point can be increased assigning workers to built universities(and their relative upgrades). In the research screen, the player can use that research points on a technology slide, one for each of the 9 resources of the game. Each resource has 8 technologies, for a total of 72 technologies. Regardless of the research points possessed, each resource research of any level is the same as the other resource researches of the same level.

E.G. If the player possesses 4 research points, and uses two of them on the Level 1 Food research and the other two on the Level 1 Wood research, as the Level 1 research of any resource takes 100 research points, both those research will take 50 turns to complete (as each turn the 2% of the total research will be complete).

  • Agricolture (already researched): allows the construction of Homesteads.
  • Domestication
  • Bronzeworking
  • Ironworking
  • Shields

DLC - Campaign Pack - The exodus of Moses


31 During the night Pharaoh summoned Moses and Aaron and said, "Up! Leave my people, you and the Israelites! Go, worship the LORD as you have requested.
32 Take your flocks and herds, as you have said, and go. And also bless me."
33 The Egyptians urged the people to hurry and leave the country. "For otherwise," they said, "we will all die!"
34 So the people took their dough before the yeast was added, and carried it on their shoulders in kneading troughs wrapped in clothing.
35 The Israelites did as Moses instructed and asked the Egyptians for articles of silver and gold and for clothing.
36 The LORD had made the Egyptians favorably disposed toward the people, and they gave them what they asked for; so they plundered the Egyptians.
37 The Israelites journeyed from Rameses to Sukkoth. There were about six hundred thousand men on foot, besides women and children.
38 Many other people went up with them, and also large droves of livestock, both flocks and herds.
39 With the dough the Israelites had brought from Egypt, they baked loaves of unleavened bread. The dough was without yeast because they had been driven out of Egypt and did not have time to prepare food for themselves.
40 Now the length of time the Israelite people lived in Egypt was 430 years.
41 At the end of the 430 years, to the very day, all the LORD's divisions left Egypt.
42 Because the LORD kept vigil that night to bring them out of Egypt, on this night all the Israelites are to keep vigil to honor the LORD for the generations to come.
43 The LORD said to Moses and Aaron, "These are the regulations for the Passover meal: "No foreigner may eat it.
44 Any slave you have bought may eat it after you have circumcised him,
45 but a temporary resident or a hired worker may not eat it.
46 "It must be eaten inside the house; take none of the meat outside the house. Do not break any of the bones.
47 The whole community of Israel must celebrate it.
48 "A foreigner residing among you who wants to celebrate the LORD's Passover must have all the males in his household circumcised; then he may take part like one born in the land. No uncircumcised male may eat it.
49 The same law applies both to the native-born and to the foreigner residing among you."
50 All the Israelites did just what the LORD had commanded Moses and Aaron.
51 And on that very day the LORD brought the Israelites out of Egypt by their divisions."

―Exodus 12, 31-51
