New Rise of Legends Screenshot
7:27 AM | Blake Buck | Comment on this story
Today Big Huge Games released a new screenshot of their latest game, Rise of Legends. Rise of Legends is the sequel to popular Rise of Nations released last year for the Mac by Macsoft. The sequel is more fantasy-based than the historically accurate original, and features realtime fully-3D graphics, unlike the 2D terrains of the original.
While the game has not yet been announced for the Mac, due to the popularity of the original, a port by Macsoft is a possibility.
