Header Summary 1

There were a number of units that required extra coding and new graphics that I could not yet add into the release. So, a post release update will be coming relatively soon. Before the end of April, expect to see Age of Bloodshed 1.05.

Edit: I have decided to extend the release date and release 1.06 in the beginning of May because there was a minor bug I discovered that I had to fix.

Countdown: Moddb.com

Look at the unit list for the Colosseum. In 1.0, there were only two Gladiator Units.

In 1.05, there are four. Introducing both the Gladiator Slinger and the Gladiator Spear Captain.

New Gladiator Units

Up next, the Amphibious Harasser. A weak scout/harasser unit that is the only amphibious vehicle in the game.

1 Amphibious

One of the new Fire Tanks and Amphibious Harassers engaging in a light raid.

I will be releasing a new mod, the first for this game in years.

The first major expansion that builds on African Kingdoms.

Age of Bloodshed.

I invite you to come explore it.

Age of Empires 2 was by far the best game of the series.

Nothing is new, except the terrain and the water. I am disappointed by far
