The First Oriental Empires DLC: 'Genghis' is Available Now!



The Oriental Empires: Genghis DLC is finally here! This brand-new addition to the base game offers new maps, buildings, units, resources, technologies and characters and expands the campaign mode to follow Genghis Khan's life story: from a homeless outcast to the legendary Warrior King.

“Genghis Khan is probably the most famous Warrior King in history and his story is one of the most requested from the Oriental Empires community. It's been fascinating bringing the world of ancient Mongolia to life, and adding storytelling elements to the game. I hope players are as excited by this DLC as I am."

- R.T. Smith (Developer)
