The famed campaigns of Alexander the Great, Hannibal, and Julius Caesar.

Great Battles Collector's Edition, an anthology of three realistic classic turn-based historical wargames, recreating the famous campaigns of iconic military leaders, with scenario editor included, is available on GOG.com, for only $5.99.

If soldiers are the cogs of war, the generals are the springs at the heart of the mechanism, making the whole thing tick in an orderly fashion. Throughout the history of military, there were many great leaders presenting unbelievable tactical genius that could turn around the course of what seemed like a lost battle. Some of them achieved such a feat once in the whole lifetime, being at the right place in the right time by a twist of fate and history. There were also some, that took the great battle with them, anywhere they went. This collection of games tells the story of three such brilliant tacticians.

Great Battles Collector's Edition is an anthology containing three classic wargames: Great Battles of Alexander, Great Battles of Hannibal, and Great Battles of Caesar. In total, the numbers of historical scenarios you can play here amounts to over 30. The games are heavy on realism, accurately depicting the historical units and equipment. With clear visuals and turn-based combat mechanics you have the chance to follow in the great leaders' footsteps, matching or even improving their battlefield performance. With the added scenario editor providing unlimited supply of challenges, you could command virtual armies for months!

MasodikTiasma: Oh my God! So, LUCASARTS CONFIRMED!
"This isn't the forum thread you're looking for."
Let's put it this way: if we'll ever get LucasArts games on board, there won't be any subtle hints trying to tell you that we did. It's either "do" or "do not", there is no "try". ;-)

Great Battles, anyone?

FYI: I played the crap out of this back in the day. It's a great collection, if you're old and grognardy.

Bambusek: Yup, Fez coming tommorow. And then something should come up in Thursday (unless Fez counts as Thursday release of course).

mrking58: tomorrow is wednesday, why would Fez count as a thursday release?
Fez does not count as the Thursday release.
