If Rome: Total War is an epic in the vein of Spartacus or Cleopatra, Stainless Steel Studios' upcoming Rise & Fall: Civilizations At War is a Michael Bay-directed, Jerry Bruckheimer-produced sword n' sandals actionfest, complete with larger-than-life celebrities of the ancient world who aren't afraid to get their hands dirty in battle - historical accuracy be damned.
This stellar cast includes Ramses and Alexander (the Greats), Julius Caesar, Achilles and the aforementioned Queen of the Nile. Plus, in an innovative move by the developer, you'll be able to control each of these titans directly, wading into combat in a third-person styles.
In terms of its core gameplay, this RTS will bear little resemblance to Rome: Total War. You recruit men and war machines one at a time rather than by the unit, you construct the mighty cities yourself, brick by brick (or building by building, at least), and last but certainly not least, you participate in the detailed real-time naval battles that Rome so sorely missed. Boarding actions, ship-on-ship ramming and the option to outfit boats with all manner of different war machines are all covered.
The game is certain to look utterly beautiful to boot -as you can see from these exclusive shots. We can't wait to mount an elephant and get stuck in.
