Rome: Total War™ - Alexander will utilise the unique gameplay of Rome to bring to life the meteoric rise of one of history’s most brilliant generals: Alexander the Great.
The expansion offers another epic addition to the Total War series boasting more that 30 hours of gameplay and will feature a brand new campaign game map, spanning Alexander’s unification of Greece and his subsequent conquest of the Persian Empire. The expansion pack will also include six new historical battles portraying Alexander’s triumphs against the Greek, Persian, and Indian forces. These will also be available for multiplayer play online and over LAN in a brand new Tournament mode that enables players to take on opponents over a series of historical battles.
The new historical battles in Rome – Alexander unlock sequentially, telling a story and accurately reflecting the conditions that Alexander endured and the tactics employed by his army. For the first time in the Total War™ series, developer Creative Assembly is elevating the production values and storytelling of its battles by linking them together with seven high-quality movies featuring the incredible voice talent of Brian Blessed (Flash Gordon, Alexander, Star Wars: The Phantom Menace). These movies will tell the epic story of Alexander and provide an in-depth historical backdrop to each of the battles.
The new campaign in Rome: Total War – Alexander will give players the objective of matching the achievements of one of the greatest generals in Western civilization. It adds four new factions to the original game, including the Macedonians and Persians. More than 60 new units are also now available, including Persian scythed chariots, elite immortals, and all of Alexander’s most famous units, including the Hypaspists, Phalangists, and Companion cavalry.
