This first full sequel to the first release from Brian Reynolds and Big Huge Games moves the action from a realistic, historical
setting to one of myth and fantasy -- although not the well-worn Tolkien-esque style of fantasy familiar to most gamers. The three
nations that rise in this RTS are not found in any particular ancient text, but are defined by details culled from various legends told
around the world. The Vinci, for example, is an industrial, "steampunk"-styled faction, conceived from the drawings of Leonardo
da Vinci, while the desert-dwelling Alim people, inspired by the stories of 1,001 Arabian Nights, rely on spirituality and sorcery
for their power, and the Cuotl race blends Maya sensibility with extraterrestrial equipment. Ongoing struggles between
technology and magic underlie the game's story.

Gameplay in Rise of Legends should be familiar to veterans of Rise of Nations, although enhancements and additions have been
made. The single-player campaign puts gamers in the role of a young, unsuspecting Vinci inventor, who has leadership suddenly
thrust upon him and must lead his people to protect their land and overcome their rivals. The "Conquer the World" mode features
a turn-based strategy overview that determines where individual real-time battles are fought, not unlike the system in Creative
Assembly's Total War games. The original Rise of Nations is also known for its accessible, engaging, fast-playing multiplayer
modes, and Rise of Legends is designed to continue this feature by offering epic, fantastical wars that can be won and lost over a
lunch break.

From the Manufacturer: The sequel to the successful realtime strategy series, now featuring fantasy locations rather than the
realistic span of Earth's wars seen in the original series and expansion packs. Gamers fight through towering cities, flame-swept
deserts and brutal ice plains in battles filled with mystical creatures, devastating machines and incredible acts of magic.

Special Features: Many customization options; several different battle modes, including online play; Huge multiplayer environment.
