Arlington, VT, May 8th 2013 – Matrix Games (www.matrixgames.com) and AGEOD (www.ageod.com) are proud to announce the release of the turn-based historical grand strategy game Rise of Prussia Gold on our online store.
Rise of Prussia Gold is a new edition of which includes 2 years’ worth of updates, fixes, improvements and even some great new features and adds 3 new scenarios to this strategy classic.
Rise of Prussia Gold recreates the “Seven Years War” which occurred between 1754 and 1763, involving most of the great powers of the time. It was defined by Winston Churchill as the first real "world war" because it was the first war in history to be fought not only across Europe, but also in various parts of the globe where the European powers had colonial possessions.
The two sides in the conflict were the Coalition of Austria, France, Russia, Poland, Sweden and the Alliance between Britain and Prussia, the new European power that possessed a formidable war machine and, above all, a great and ambitious leader, King Frederick II.
Rise of Prussia Gold is available as a full new game or as an upgrade kit for Rise of Prussia.
