History of the World

The Game of Rising Empires and Falling Powers

Lead Your Empires to Victory!

History of the World traces the rise and fall of empires from the dawn of civilization to the threshold of modern time. You'll lead a different empire in each of the game's seven epochs, from the ancient Sumerians to the Egyptians, Romans, Huns, Mongols, and Spanish Conquistadores. Each epoch represents a specific period in world history. You may find yourself commanding the Vikings, the Ming Dynasty, or the Holy Roman Empire. Each empire expands across the world, absorbing the lands, cities, and monumental wonders of those that came before. Seize as much of the world as possible during each reign, because on a stage this big, all glory is fleeting. A new power always rises from the rubble of the old.
