Set in the 5th century BC, the ancient world of Greece is in turmoil, under threat from Xerxes and his giant Persian Empire, whole cities are crumbling under the weight of his army. This is a world where politics and diplomacy prove as sharp as the blades of combat. Few men have dared to rise against Xerxes and his invading armies. The people need a hero – someone to stand up and unite Greece in the battle against his empire. With guidance from King Leonidas and help from his Spartan army, you will hone your abilities as a strategist, diplomat and a leader, while you build an army unrivalled by even that of Xerxes. Harvest Resources, build your City and train an army powerful enough to crush any opposition. Expand your City, conquer others and take to the battlefield with the most fearsome warriors in all of Sparta.
Simply having a large army is not enough to win the war against Xerxes – you will need to be a master of the strategic arts if you wish to stand a chance against his army. Join a Coalition or create and develop your own to fight alongside other Archons, occupy other Cities and increase your control over Greece. Fight together and cooperate with other Archons to defeat rival Coalitions, gain fame and enjoy the spoils of war. By creating your own Coalition and assisting other Archons, you can supply Resources, Articles and even Reinforcements to each other in times of need. To succeed and overcome Xerxes’ overwhelming numbers, it is going to take a team of many. You’ll need to work together and master battle strategy if you have hopes of victory – against Xerxes, no Archon can survive alone.
