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.

Normal maps. Awesome. Now, it will be a lot of work making them for all the already existent stuff

Looks wonderful! I hope players will admire the great lighting affects with normals and specular highlights even though they are usually zoomed way out to manage their troops.
