Top New Gameplay Features In This Release:
Herocide/Regicide: You start with a hero and are defeated when he or she dies.
Wonder Victory: Now you can change the time from when the wonder is built to when you win. Either set it to 0 so you win as soon as the wonder is built or to anywhere between 1 and 120 minutes for a chance for the opponents to destroy it before the match is won.
Last Man Standing: Only one player can win the game. Form temporary alliances to eliminate common competitors. But be careful: as the remaining players struggle for victory, allies are forced to turn against you. This mode can be played with every victory condition.
New buildings and champions
The Persian Hall and Hellenic Royal Stoa can train new Infantry Champions in town and city phase.
The Briton Crannog acts as a civic center and dock, providing economic stability on both land and water.
Romans and Persians benefit from the new Temple of Vesta and Gate of Ishtar, making buildings harder to capture.
Patrolling: When clicking the button or pressing the hotkey (P + Right Click), units move along the path you set for them and attack enemy units they encounter along the way, then return to the beginning and continue doing so until you give them another order.
Tech Cost Modifiers and Team Bonuses: The costs of technologies can now be modified by Auras and Technologies, demonstrated by faster and cheaper research when a Library was built. Players get a bonus if they are on a team with a player of a certain civilization. For example allies of Iberians have 20 cheaper skirmishers, allies of Seleucids have 20 cheaper civic centers.
Stackable Auras: Capturing further Wonders, Libraries or Theatrons increases the building bonus proportionally. Losing a wonder means losing the population bonus, capturing a wonder means further increasing the maximum population, making the Wonder a crucial part of the empire.
