Feral Interactive announced today that Rome: Total War - Alexander, originally released for the PC, will be launched for the Mac on February 27th. In a fast-paced single-player campaign of 100 turns, players are challenged to match Alexander's ferocious speed of thought and action. Just as he conquered the known world in 13 short years, players must rapidly capture a multitude of territories from Europe to India while regularly outnumbered by hostile armies.
Rome: Total War - Alexander also introduces six historical battles based on Alexander's greatest triumphs, as well as four new playable factions: Macedon, Persia, India and the barbarian Dahae. 50 new units are under players' control, including the Persian Immortal Infantry, Indian War Elephants and elite Macedonian Companion Cavalry. Historical LAN battles are also expanded with new rulesets allowing for 1-vs-2 and 1-vs-3 clashes.
