After the death of its emperor the Hesperian Empire breaks down and four races fight for the leadership. Each faction - Giants, Mages, Druids and Pygmies - can be played in their campaigns consisting of 20 missions. The missions goals are usually to destroy or protect something.

The units have special abilities and an inventory to store items like potions, money or spells which are left behind from defeated enemies. They also can be upgraded by moving them in the appropriate building (e.g. a blacksmith) and spending money. There is no classical base building.


Hesperian Wars Windows Campaigns are divided into chapters of 6 missions each, 5 of which have to be completed in order to progress to the next chapter.
