Rise of Nations goes gold

Microsoft Game Studios announces that development on its historical real-time strategy game is finished.


Microsoft Game Studios has today announced that development on Rise of Nations is complete, and the game is scheduled to ship to stores on May 20 in North America and May 23 in Europe. Rise of Nations was developed by Big Huge Games, the company founded by Civilization II and Alpha Centauri designer Brian Reynolds, and it combines the fast-paced action of real-time strategy games with elements of grand strategy and the ability to play through different ages in history more commonly associated with turn-based games.
