New Update allows imports from Hegemony Rome!

Update 3.3.5 is officially here! The update adds some major new modding features like hi-res maps and support for importing units from Hegemony Rome, plus a handful of interface and gameplay adjustments. Click here for all of the changes.

And, if you haven't already, check out the Steam workshop to see some of the amazing work the community has been doing, including the latest Classical World mod (CW4) that uses the new Hegemony Rome import feature in 3.3.5 (you'll need to own Hegemony Rome and have it installed for this to work).

I've also got to drop a quick plug for our newly announced adventure game Golem! It's quite a departure from Hegemony, but if it goes well it will open up a lot more options for a future Hegemony IV. So if you're up for something different, or know someone else who might be, please pass along the link.

And finally, we are also working on the next expansion for Hegemony III - it doesn't have an official release date yet but we're hoping to at least get a few details out in the coming weeks so stay tuned.

cheers,
The Longbow Team

About This Game

The Battle for the Ancient World has Begun!


Centuries before Caesar, Alexander or Philip, the forested hills and rocky coasts of ancient Italy draw cultures from across the Mediterranean with promises of wealth and prosperity. Bronze-clad hoplites from the powerful Greek city-states set sail across the Adriatic to carve out bridgeheads of Hellenic culture amongst the native Italic hill tribes, while aggressive bands of Gallic Skirmishers make the trek South across the Alps in search of fertile new land. And along the marshy banks of the Tiber river, a small upstart city called Rome battles for independence from the established Etruscan confederacy.

But only one faction can rise to become the greatest empire the Mediterranean has ever seen. Will Rome fulfil its destiny to rule the ancient world or will history be rewritten to forge a new Etruscan, Gallic, or Greek hegemony!
