RoN: Rise of Legends Preview
8:34 AM | Anthony Wang | Comment on this story

Gamecloud today posted a preview of the upcoming Rise of Nations: Rise of Legends, an all new fantasy RTS game, not a sequel to the original Rise of Nations as some believed. In this preview, Gamecloud had to the opportunity to play with the single player in an early build of the game and were impressed by the military units and graphics.

Rise of Legends's units are impressive based on what we have played in the preview build, from the typical infantry units to massive battle units such as the Vinci's units who have things like a 19th century version of a battle mech to the Alim's fire birds. You also have special hero units for each side that add special bonuses. The research tree is there as well but this time Big Huge Games is making players make some choices as not all your upgrades will be available. Finally there are the special Dominance powers that the player can access if they achieve certain goals. For example, the military dominance power kicks in to the player who first gets four footsoldiers which then allows them to actually add enemies footsoldiers to your side.
Though Rise of Nations: Rise of Legends has not been confirmed for Mac, the first Rise of Nations was ported succesfully by MacSoft. Please follow the links below to read the preview and to learn more information.
