9:16 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story
Back in June MacSoft announced it would be porting Rise of Nations to the Mac. Today the company announced that it will be including the Rise of Nations expansion pack along with the original as a "Gold" edition. The game is now in the final testing phase and scheduled to ship in November.
Rise of Nations is an historical real-time strategy (RTS) game which combines the epic scope of traditional turn-based strategy (TBS) games with the fast-paced action of RTS games. The game allows players to create new cities, improve their city infrastructure and expand national borders. Players have the option to win through military might using everything from slingshots to cannons to stealth bombers, or they can corner the market on key commodities as they wheel and deal with a wide variety of nations.
The Thrones and Patriots expansion adds a barrage of new features to the original game. Thrones and Patriots introduces six new nations, four unique single-player campaigns, more than 20 original units, new wonders and new government types. Unlike other historical RTS games, the Rise of Nations franchise allows gamers to quickly play through eight historical periods of time from the Ancient Age to the Information Age.
Rise of Nations Gold is being ported to the Mac by Westlake Interactive. For more information, be sure to check out IMG's preview of the game, linked below.
