Rise of Nations: Thrones and Patriots is an extension pack to the popular turn-based strategy game, Rise of Nations for Windows PCs.
Much like other spin-offs in this popular series, Rise of Nations adds a cadre of new features to the original game. In this game, you can explore 6,000 years of history as you build up the economy of your new civilization and ensure its continued survival.
This newest extension pack introduces players to six new nations to conquer and cultivate. In addition, there's the option to engage in four unique campaigns that are single player only. Rise of Nations: Thrones and Patriots also comes with over 20 original units and introduces players to government types you've never seen before in this game series. You can play through eight different epochs at your own pace, from Ancient Age at the earliest to Information Age thousands of years later on.
The graphics in Rise of Nations might be a bit basic for some users, especially compared to video games in today's high definition gaming world. The myriad of different options will more than make up for it for a lot of players who want the flexibility and experience of creating their own civilization from the ground up though.
Rise of Nations: Thrones and Patriots is a thoroughly engrossing game for history buffs and general gamers alike.
