Type: News

Gates of Troy is now available for purchase from Matrix Games! Matrix Games and Slitherine Strategies (www.slitherine.co.uk) are pleased to announce that the new turn-based empire-building and ancient battles game Gates of Troy is now available for worldwide download and purchase from the Matrix Games Online Store at a price of US$19.99 or equivalent.

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said, “Gates of Troy is truly an awesome strategy gaming experience.  Building a civilization, training an army and then getting to enjoy it march across the battlefield in 1:1 ratio is truly satisfying.”

Gates of Troy is now available for online purchase and the DVD boxed version will be available in two weeks.  In Gates of Troy you will lead your nation to victory in the ancient world’s greatest battles.  Capture romance and adventure as you work your way to the far off shores of Troy.  Control a vast empire and fight epic sized battles on 3D battlefields.  With 6 new campaigns and 19 new heroes to come to your aid it will take all the planning in the world to build your cities and conquer your enemies.  Greece is in your hands in Gates of Troy!

Gates of Troy retails for $19.99 from the Matrix Games Online Store for the downloadable version.  The DVD box version will be $29.99 plus shipping, again, available in two weeks.   The game is fully backwards compatible with the previous game Spartan and supports the previous Spartan campaigns and scenarios but does not require Spartan to run.

Iain McNeil at Slitherine Strategies said, “We are happy that Slitherine and Matrix Games could come together on this project to help release Gates of Troy to the US market.  We anticipate great success in this and future endeavors.”
