0 A.D. is a free, open-source, cross-platform real-time strategy (RTS) game of ancient warfare. It's a historically-based war/economy game that allows players to relive or rewrite the history of twelve ancient civilizations, from Iberia to Mauryan India, each depicted at their peak of economic growth and military prowess. Developed using Pyrogenesis, a ground-breaking new game engine custom-built to suit this project, 0 A.D. will give players a rich and entertaining real-time gaming experience.
A typical Settlement. Construct Civic Centres here in order to claim territories for your fledgling province. The player will start with a small number of soldiers and female citizens with which to begin colonization of their new territory. Settlements will be surrounded by a small amount of starter resources (trees, berry bushes, stone, metal mines, huntable fauna), but these are soon depleted and the player is forced to expand in order to secure new sources of raw materials.
