Back to News Listing 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.

 

Summary of features:

  • Dismountable cavalry units
  • 10 new factions
  • 17 new units
  • 30 new army lists
  • 6 new Epic Battles
  • 37 new Quick Battles
  • Expanded Custom Battles module.
  • Expanded Sandbox Campaign module.
  • 4 new historically-based campaigns.

Battlestar Galactica Deadlock - Dev Diary #15 'Let's dance!'

Thursday, January 17, 2019

The gym was often empty during this particular shift. Lucinda’s presence in the room was enough to keep the rest of the battered equipment vacant. She played old Tauron music whenever she was here alone; raunchy lyrics from teenage mops of hair and guitars, borne of a time when she was young enough to care about such things. She adjusted her footing, squared up the bag once more, and released one one two, her left foot tapping the floor on both jabs before the cross. The bag wavered dutifully.

Footwork had always been her strong point. No point throwing your hands up if you didn’t have the balance and stamina to match. She’d made some quick cubits back in the academy flooring some of the flyboys. Most of them were dead now.

The crisis that has enveloped Venezuela since 2013 has reached a quasi-apocalyptic dimension.

The Government of Caracas has accused in several occasions that the reason for this humanitarian catastrophe is the constant interference of the USA and its puppets in the region, willing to stop the glorious Bolivarian Revolution started with Hugo Chavez.

These suspects have been reinforced by the enclosing relationship between Colombia and NATO, culminating in 2015 in a joint military operation against maritime piracy.

Emperor preserve us! The Tyranids are here!

Tuesday, January 15, 2019

War spares no one: Orks, Necrons, Astra Militarum, Adeptus Astartes. All are spilling blood. But no one expected this.

It started as a rumour: xeno test subjects escaping from an Adeptus Mechanicus research facility. Then it turned into something more sinister... word of something lurking in the remote corners of Gladius Prime, ever growing, driven by an insatiable hunger.

Now everything has changed: the Tyranids are here!

Warhammer 40,000: Gladius - Tyranids Gameplay Mechanics

Tuesday, January 8, 2019

The Tyranids are an extremely original and unique race.

Their playstyle is rather different compared to the other factions: they field large numbers of cannon-fodder infantry which is best employed to cover for very powerful heavy infantry. They have access to highly specialised units (more on them in a units diary later this week) as well as flying monstrous creatures!
