Longbow Games’ excellent strategy title Hegemony Gold: Wars of Ancient Greece is now available on Steam. The $19.99 download ($9.99 if you are upgrading to Gold) includes three campaigns and a sandbox mode. Gamers dreaming of a glorious Macedonian empire can play The Rise of Philip to set the groundwork as Philip of Macedon. The famous Peloponnesian War is also represented, with the two remaining campaigns, The Archidamian War and The Ionian War, pitting players against Sparta as Athens and then against Athens as Sparta.
Longbow will also be releasing their follow-up to Hegemony Gold later this year, Hegemony Rome: Rise of Caesar. For more information on what the studio has in store for Hegemony Rome, check out our interview with Rick Yorgason of Longbow, From Philip to Caesar – Longbow Games on Hegemony Rome.
