In the second add-on to Rome: Total War, the player is cast in the role of the famous Alexander the Great from Macedonia. In the time from 336 BC and 323 BC, the player leads his armies to unite the Greek city states and finally conquer the Persian empire under the rule of King Dareios - and all that in only 100 game rounds.

Rome: Total War - Alexander gives the player control over four new fractions (Macedonia, Persia, Indian and the barbarians) and 60 new units. There are also six new historical battles available for single- and multiplayer. A new tournament mode is available, in which the player needs to win a predefined number of battles against a human opponent or the AI in order to proclaim total victory.

Alexander was not sold in US stores, and is thus not included in the Rome: Total War (Gold Edition) compilation. It was only available as an online download in the US.
