Conquest of Elysium II Released As Freeware
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Illwinter Game Design and Shrapnel Games have made Conquest of Elysium II available as a free download. The turn based fantasy strategy game is the precursor to the enjoyably complex Dominions series, and allows one to eight human or computer controlled nations battle for sole rulership of the land. Although not as complex as its descendants, CoE II offers a horde of units and options to play with.

In 1997 Illwinter Game Design, best known for their award-winning series, Dominions, released on an unsuspecting world Conquest of Elysium II. The direct precursor of Dominions 3: The Awakening, Conquest of Elysium II is where the addiction originated. Unfortunately, for fans wanting to see how their favorite fantasy series began, acquiring a copy has been difficult, at least until now.

Illwinter Game Design and Shrapnel Games have just made Conquest of Elysium II available to the world as a FREE download. This is the full game, no strings attached. Download and play it forever!

Available for all the major operating systems (Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux-sorry, Sinclair ZX81 users!), Conquest of Elysium II allows gamers to step back in time and discover a true strategy gem that emphasizes gameplay over glitz, and rewards players with a rich tapestry of carefully woven fun. Dominions players will instantly recognize the themes and options explored in the game, although at a smaller scale than they are used to.
Head over to the site below to download the game.
