Rise of Kingdoms is a free-to-play mobile MMO RTS (real-time strategy) game for PC (Windows, Mac) and mobile (Android, iOS) inspired by history. In Rise of Kingdoms, players choose one out of 11 civilizations to govern over and expand into a flourishing empire through different historical periods of time stretching from the Stone Age to the Middle Ages. Alongside the daily tasks of settlement construction and resource management, players ensure their power of influence by strengthening their army and employing real historical figures such as Julius Caesar, Joan of Arc and Sir Lancelot as commanders to lead their troops into real time battles. Once ready, players can join an alliance, tapping into an endless reserve of battle ready forces, income through shared assets and assistance with research, creating a completely new game dynamic.
▶ Real-Time Battles: Battles are not pre-calculated but happen in real time on the map. Anyone can join or leave a battle at any time, allowing true RTS gameplay. See an ally being attacked right in your backyard? Send some troops to help your buddy out, or launch a surprise counterattack on the attacker’s city.
▶ Seamless World Map: All in-game action takes place on a single, enormous map inhabited by players and NPC characters. No isolated bases or separate battle screens. Never before seen on mobile “infinite zoom” feature allows you to transition freely between the world view and individual cities or barbarian outposts. Map features include natural obstructions such as rivers and mountain ranges and strategic passes that must be captured to gain entrance to neighboring regions.
▶ Eleven Unique Civilizations: Choose one of 11 historical civilizations (more to come!) and guide your civilization from a lone clan into a great power. Each civilization has its own architecture, unique units, and special advantages.
▶ Exploration & Investigation: The world of Rise of Kingdoms is covered in thick fog. Dispatch scouts to explore this mysterious land and uncover the hidden treasure within. Investigate lost temples, barbarian fortresses, mysterious caves, and tribal villages, gather intelligence on your enemies, and prepare yourself for the ultimate clash!
▶ Unrestricted Troop Movements: New orders can be issued to troops at any time, offering limitless strategic possibilities. Launch a feint at an enemy city, then circle back and meet up with your alliance army to capture a pass. Dispatch troops to collect lumber from a nearby forest and have them pick off a few barbarian clans along the way. Forces can also be split up between multiple commanders so that you can engage in multiple actions simultaneously.
▶ Alliance System: Full set of alliance features allow players to help one another: alliance chat with built-in translation function, officer roles, map indicators to coordinate strategies, and more! Alliances can expand their territory to gain resources, capture mountain passes and barbarian outposts to strengthen their position, and work together to unlock group achievements.

Level up your commanders by defeating barbarians and sending them into battles, then upgrade their abilities using an RPG style talent tree and skill system.
