Rise of Rome is an expansion pack for Field of Glory.
It adds a host of new features to single and multiplayer and a vast number of armies and troop types making this more than just an expansion pack; it is an entirely new game!
Field of Glory Digital is based on the popular Field of Glory tabletop wargaming system from Slitherine (www.fieldofglory.com), the PC version takes care of all the calculations and measurements and just leaves you to make the important and fun decisions.
Allows you to fight against armies from the same army pack for historical match ups or, if you choose, against armies from other army packs so you can try “what if” battles with Medieval Knights vs. Roman Legions.
A comprehensive Digital Army Generator (D.A.G.) which allows you to design armies to a specific number of points and then take these armies in to single player against the AI or online in multiplayer. Making its first ever appearance on a Slitherine title, the D.A.G. is a powerful tool for any wargames addict !
