Golden Age for AOE3 expansion, new Caesar

Development on strategy games Age of Empires III: The WarChiefs, Caesar IV complete; games to be released over next few weeks.

It's almost time for strategy gamers to put their latest plans for virtual-world domination into action. Two empire-building PC games have wrapped up development and will be on store shelves over the next month.

Caesar IV, the first installment of the city-building franchise since 1998's Caesar III, lets gamers play governor and nurture a Roman province into one of the empire's strongest city-states. There are more than 100 buildings to erect, dozens of tradable goods to develop a bustling economy, and 75 unique citizens to interact with.

The game, which is rated E10+ for Everyone 10 and Older, will retail for $39.99 when it hits stores September 26. For more information, read GameSpot's previous coverage.

The WarChiefs expansion for the popular Age of Empires III adds three playable Native American civilizations--the Iroquois Confederation, the Sioux Nation, and the Aztec Empire--to the real-time strategy game. New maps and units will also be thrown in to the mix, as will a new single-player campaign.

Age of Empires: The WarChiefs is rated T for Teen and will retail for $29.99 when it is released on October 17. Read GameSpot's previous coverage of the game for more details.

Dug Caesar II, and III. Oh man, I've played a lot of games but these types simply suck my will to live(which means going out and stuff, which I don't do when I play these kinds of games). Must buy Caesar IV.

lol, of course Caesar IV will be better than the crappy Roman city-building games that have been coming out, for crying out loud, the venerable Caesar series has been around for ever, and has gotten a great deal of acclaim.

I don't know how many hours I lost to Caesar 3 many years ago. Hopefully, this one is just as engrossing.
