Feral Interactive today announced that ROME: Total War – Alexander, the strategy game based on the exploits of antiquity’s greatest commander, will be released for iPhone and Android on October 24th. Originally developed by Creative Assembly and published by SEGA for Windows PC, and brought to iPad by Feral Interactive, Alexander is the second standalone expansion pack for the critically-acclaimed mobile game ROME: Total War. Alexander will be a premium game with no in-app purchases.
A century before the events of ROME: Total War, Alexander ascends the Macedonian throne and embarks upon an audacious campaign to conquer the all-powerful Persian Empire. Players will lead their armies to unify the Greek city states, and then march across Central Asia, routing all enemies along the way, before establishing their legend as Alexander the Great, the most remarkable general of classical civilisation.
For players who have mastered ROME and Barbarian Invasion, Alexander provides the ultimate test of their skills.
As with ROME: Total War and Barbarian Invasion, the iPhone and Android versions of Alexander will deliver the full experience of the desktop version, with a UI tailored specifically for phones.
Alexander is available for pre-register on the Google Play Store. When released, the game will cost $4.99 / €5.49 / £4.99. The iPhone version will be a free update for anyone who owns the iPad version. It will be a premium game, with no in-app purchases.
