Full review

Ascend to the Macedonian throne as Alexander the Great in this immersive strategy game. With complex turn-based battles, a highly customizable army, and empire management, players can relive the legendary conqueror's journey.

Intricate tactics are at your disposal as you outflank opponents for bonus damage and strategically command different units on the battlefield. With limited action points per turn, every decision counts in shaping your path to victory.

Experience a living and breathing world set in 4th century BC. Navigate through various 'Balls', each with their own martial traditions, which can be convinced to join your Macedonian army through either gold or glory. The choices you make will have lasting consequences for your empire.

Your army is highly customizable with billions of possible combinations. Add Alexander's companions into the mix and these numbers become even larger. Unleash unique PvP multiplayer battles where creativity shines - from well-balanced armies to outrageous combinations that may catch opponents off guard!

Loyalty plays a pivotal role in managing your growing empire, just as it did during Alexander the Great's reign. Place trusted governors strategically while maintaining high opinions among subjects to ensure stability within your territories.

Embark on a story-driven experience that takes you through iconic battles of history alongside legendary companions who progressively grow alongside their young king throughout an epic journey across Greece and beyond.

Challenge friends to challenging PvP duels that test both strategic thinking and knowledge of turn-based tactics. Experiment with diverse unit compositions and generals until you uncover a playstyle that will redefine armchair generalship for years to come!

The full release of the game promises alternate history campaigns where players can explore what could have happened if Alexander had chosen different paths west or north instead of his traditional eastern conquests.
