Fans of Rome: Total War (and they are legion) will be happy to hear that Feral Interactive has announced a Macintosh release date for Rome: Total War – Alexander; the King of Macedon will make his OS X debut on February 27th. The expansion pack for Rome: Total War – Gold Edition was developed by Creative Assembly.
The Alexader expansion pack is a “… fast-paced single-player campaign of 100 turns …” in which players must match Alexander’s ferocity by rapidly capture territories from Europe to India despite being outnumbered by hostile armies.
Of course, you know that’s not all:
The game also introduces six historical battles based on Alexander’s greatest triumphs, as well as four new playable factions: Macedon, Persia, India and the barbarian Dahae. 50 new units are under players’ control, including the Persian Immortal Infantry, Indian War Elephants and elite Macedonian Companion Cavalry. Historical LAN battles are also expanded with new rulesets allowing for 1-vs-2 and 1-vs-3 clashes.
Rome: Total War – Alexander for the Mac will retail for for a mere $6.99 (£4.99 inc. VAT in the UK, and €5.99 inc.VAT throughout Europe), but it requires a registered copy of Rome: Total War – Gold Edition, of course.
