Staten Island, NY, Apr 26th, 2005 –
www.matrixgames.com and Koios Works
www.koiosworks.com today announced
that the latest game in the Tin Soldiers series, Tin Soldiers: Julius Caesar has
been released for sale from the Matrix Games online store via digital download.
A boxed copy will also be available by the end of the week. Tin Soldiers: Julius
Caesar introduces several major improvements since Alexander the Great,
including a full 3D camera, non-linear campaigns and a
mobilization/re-enlistment system for your forces.
David Heath, Director of Operations
for Matrix Games said, “The Tin Soldiers series has been a standout in the
quality of gameplay combined with the elegance of the design. Reviewers rewarded
it with high ratings and fans demanded a sequel. Koios Works has delivered!
Improved full 3D graphics and a non-linear campaign system mark this as a major
leap forward in the series and on a subject that no gamer can resist!”
Tin Soldiers: Julius Caesar adds a
new look with a full 3D engine, allowing users to spin and zoom around the
battlefield, viewing their armies and the terrain from all angles. It also
sports a non-linear progression that is divided into two “chapters” of play,
allowing much more flexibility in the strategy of where to strike next.
Additional improvements have been made to the AI in how it uses its units and
forms its strategy. The Roman time period allows for the mobilization of entire
Legion, which are the backbone of your mighty army, as well as native
auxiliaries and siege weapons. As with Alexander the Great, your units and
leaders can improve as the campaign goes on. The new mobilization and
re-enlistment system gives you more control over the composition of forces in
each battle. Your choice and how you use those forces will be vital to defeating
the enemies that would thwart Roman expansion.
Taking the role of Julius Caesar,
your campaign begins with the assault on the barbarian tribes of the north, from
the Helvetii to Gergovia and culminating in the final battle at Alesia, which
ends Chapter 1. After gaining fame and crossing the Rubicon, your attention
shifts to the Roman civil war, where you seize power against the faltering
Republic and your rivals. Can you outmaneuver your foes and secure the title and
power you so richly deserve? Rome’s future rested in the hands of its greatest
general, this time its future is up to you…
