DescriptionAge of Empires: Rise of Rome is an expansion for Age of Empires. Along several bug fixes, new maps, and four new campaigns about the rise and fall of Rome, it includes four new civilizations (Carthage, Macedonia, Palmyra, and Roman) with a new building design, five new units (slingers, armored elephants, camel riders, fire galleys, and scythe chariots), and four new technologies (logistics, martyrdom, medicine, and tower shield).
Gameplay is also tweaked, with the ability to queue production of units of the same type, the ability to use the "home" key to circle through events, the possibility to change the population limit, and a new map size "gigantic" was added.
