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.
In eager anticipation of our upcoming Alpha release, we've decided to show you some of the latest additions to the art repository, specifically several Iberian contributions that will help them stand out even more!

In eager anticipation of our upcoming Alpha release, we've decided to show you some of the latest additions to the art repository. First, the work of one of our long-standing artists, Amish Coelho (known to the community by his alias, Shield Bearer), who has been responsible for not only quite a few of our buildings (in fact, the majority of our revised Celt structures), but the vast majority of those fancy buildings icons you've been seeing over the last 10 months. Here's one of his latest finished products, the Iberian corral:
Another recent addition that you've likely spotted in our screenshots is a contribution from Matthijs de Rijk (known commonly as EmjeR): the Iberian merchant ship. Matthijs is a famed modder of the Age of Mythology community and Wildfire Games, and has been working with us for quite some time. You probably know him best for his beautiful collection of Persian and Roman ships and several of our prized props. Here are some screenshots of his latest work:
