A great new grand strategy game set during the wars of Early Roman Republic is here!

Birth of Rome covers the important and epic wars that led the Roman republic to unify Italy, then defeat Carthage in Sicily. Relive the first conquests of the Roman consuls as they face powerful and determined opponents such as Pyrrhus of Epirus or Hanibal Barca of Carthage. Don’t let history write your destiny, it is completely up to you on how to handle the situation, or try your hand at rewriting history as Rome’s enemies.

Birth of Rome offers a level of historical accuracy and detail never reached before in a video game. Birth of Rome is a true simulation where players are challenged to create armies and fleets, organize and maneuver them, sustain and reinforce them. All the time taking into account military, economic, political and diplomatic parameters.

 

Scenarios:

  • The 3rd Samnite War opposing Rome and the Etruscan are the Samnite tribes between 298 and 291 BC, that will bring Rome control of central Italy.
  • The Senones War (284 to 282 BC), a violent Gallic tribe in Northern Italy at war with Rome. Victory against these powerful Celtic warriors allows the Romans to take their revenge against those who plundered Rome in 390 BC.
  • Pyrrhic Victories (280 BC to 272 BC) where the Senate of Rome finally manages to capture Tarentum and southern Italy after repulsing one of the greatest ancient warrior kings, Pyrrhus of Epirus.
  • The First Punic War, a very long campaign between 264 and 241 BC, pitting Rome against Carthage for the control of Sicily. A balanced struggle, focusing on naval operations. A shorter version starts in 256 BC.
  • The Mercenary War (241 BC to 238 BC), a fight between an exhausted Carthage and her own rebellious mercenaries in Africa.

Reviews - From the Press

Review at GrogHeads
"The scenarios are full of period flavour, well designed, and reflect the circumstances of history".

Review at Armchair General
94% - The variety of nations, troop types, situations and options make Birth of Rome more interesting than Alea Jacta Est. With more add-ons coming, this series will have a long and fascinating run.

Review at Tacticular cancer
"Birth of Rome adds some interesting new content for players of the original Alea Jacta Est and also serves as a perfectly good starting point for newcomers to the series."

Review at Estrategas de sillon
[...]the AJE series, and Birth of Rome in particular, are the Renaissance of the turn-based operational strategy, set in classical times, a delight for the great strategists.
