Age of Belisarius, 3eme DLC pour Field of Glory II

Slitherine a dévoilé hier une série de captures d’écrans présentant la prochaine extension de Field of Glory II. Add-on sur le thème cette fois de la chute de l’empire romain d’occident entre 476 AD et 600 AD, et particulièrement des batailles menées par le fameux général Bélisaire.

Au programme, onze factions supplémentaires (Avars, Byzantines, Franks, Gepids, Lombards, Ostrogoths, Slavs, Turks, Vandals, Visigoths, Welsh), six batailles épiques (Dara 530 AD, Tricamarum 533 AD, Taginae 552 AD, The Volturnus 554 AD, Bukhara 557 AD, Raith 596 AD), une trentaine de batailles rapides, quatre campagnes historiques (Belisarius ; Clovis I of the Franks ; King of Kings 2 (Sassanid Persia) ; Rise of the Avars) et une trentaine de listes d’armées avec lesquelles recréer vous-mêmes vos batailles historiques ou hypothétiques. Au passage notez que le jeu totalise désormais plus de 160 listes d’armées différentes, une sacré palette avec laquelle composer si vous avez tous les modules du jeu.

Age of Belisarius announced

476 Anno Domini. Romulus Augustus, the last Emperor of the Western Roman Empire, has been deposed by Odoacer. The last vestiges of the first and greatest unifying power of Europe are now in ruins.

While the old western provinces of the Empire are now ruled by kings of Germanic lineage, the Eastern Roman Empire is solidifying its power, succeeding in preserving the ancient Roman legacy, but its frontiers are far from being at peace.

On its most eastern edges, the House of Sasan has dissolved the old Parthian rule, and on its ashes has created one of the most powerful and influential powers of Early Middle Ages: the Sasanian Empire.

A new age is coming, an age of transformation and bitter fights. An age of warriors and kings, of valorous emperors and generals.

To whom will you swear loyalty?

Age of Belisarius expands Field of Glory II forwards from the fall of the Western Roman Empire in 476 AD to 600 AD, a period when the Eastern Roman (Byzantine) army transformed itself from a mainly infantry force to a cavalry army in response to the threats it faced.

You can be part of the flowering of the new “barbarian” kingdoms that replaced the Roman Empire in the west, and the conflict between them. You can play a major role in the resurgence of the Eastern Roman (Byzantine) Empire and the reconquest by the Emperor Justinian I’s generals, especially Belisarius and later Narses, of the Vandal kingdom of Africa, the Ostrogothic kingdom of Italy and part of the Visigothic kingdom of Spain.

You can take part in the almost continuous warfare between the Byzantines and the Sassanid Persians in the East, and the Sassanids’ own troubles with their eastern neighbours, the Hephthalites and the Göktürks. You can lead the Avars to conquer a mighty empire north of the Danube, and to threaten the very existence of the Byzantine Empire – or you can defend against them.
