Back to News Listing Hannibal: Rome and Carthage Is Updated

Posted: Friday, October 28, 2011 by Sean Drummy

Type: Press Release

Some improvements, fixes, and changes to keep Carthage marching strong!

Matrix Games, Slitherine (www.slitherine.com), and Forced March Games (www.forcedmarchgames.com) are pleased release the comprehensive 1.04 update for their ancients strategy game, Hannibal: Rome and Carthage. The update includes changes to play balance, improved AI, additions to the user interface plus some bug and rare crash fixes.

From Cannae to Zama – Bring the mighty Roman Empire to its knees!

Hannibal: Rome and Carthage in the Second Punic War is a new and innovative turn-based strategy game that puts you in command of the Carthaginian military during a period of total war over land and sea with the young Roman Republic. With this military juggernaut of the ancient world at your disposal, you will vie for control over Italy, Carthage, Spain and the Mediterranean Sea using a combination of strategic political maneuvering and sheer tactical skill both on land and sea. Play consists of two layers; the first is a strategic layer where you must prudently steer your forces to the destruction of Rome’s army and the ultimate destruction of the Republic and city itself. At your disposal are a variety of unit types and historical commanders from which to form your armies.  On the tactical scale, when meeting the enemy in battle, skilled leadership and a knack for war come into play as you use a simple but engaging battle system to best your opponents.

Commanders would do well to be shrewd in both war and politics as they must use diplomacy and cunning to appease and satisfy their own senate while cultivating key alliances in places like Gaul and Syracuse. To ensure that no two games are alike, a variety of historical option cards are available in every game. These cards simulate a variety of plausible events like reinforcements, political influence, revolts, desertion, specialized battle tactics, and more.  The end result is engrossing and addictive turn-based gameplay and a challenging AI opponent that will keep you coming back for just one more challenge and to try just one more different strategy. Hannibal features truly unique historically themed artwork in nearly all aspects of the game. This is coupled with loads of high quality, Ancient period music to make for an immersive and wholly enjoyable experience!

Get the update here. The update is comprehensive and will bring all previous versions of Hannibal: Rome and Carthage to 1.04.Get more information on Hannibal: Rome and Carthage from its official product page.
