Rise of Nations: Rise of Legends is a real-time strategy game for the PC made by Big Huge Games, and published by Microsoft. It is the spiritual successor to the popular game, Rise of Nations released in May 2003. However, rather than being a historical game, it is based in a fantasy world, where technology and magic coexist.

About Rise of Legends with 0 comments by alincarpetman on Nov 16th, 2013

1 As reported here and here, the rights to Rise of Legends and Rise of Nations (as well as other BHG and 38 Studios games) are going to be sold at an auction sometime in December 2013.  Whoever buys the rights to this game will have the option to do something with it such as a simple digital re-release or something more. 

There is some more info at the official auction page here and fans of the game can post any ideas and suggestions for a possible re-release in the Heavengames forum here.

2 News update here: Ign.com - The rights to Rise of Legends and Rise of Nations were bought in the auction. No details yet but here's a quote: "Several properties actually were sold, however, including the Big Huge Games trademark, Rise of Nations, Rise of Legends and associated IP."

3 Update on spreading the world about both games and re-releases:

Rise of Legends
Forum @ Heavengames - register for discussion, downloads and mod projects for ROL and many other rts and city builder games
Downloads @ Heavengames and Moddb - Motter has made 3 big mods for ROL and they are great so check them out!
Encyclopedia of info and links - dig deeper into the game world and find helpful info
Discussion for a future re-release - post your ideas and suggestions for a re-release
Current fan projects - view and discuss fans still working on the game - we need modders!
Gog and Steam page links - vote and discuss for a re-release on these sites

If you or someone you know likes rts games, strategy, fantasy, steampunk, arabian nights and ancient aliens - check out ROL!

Rise of Nations
Forum @ Heavengames - register for discussion, downloads and mod projects for RON and many other rts and city builder games
Downloads @ Heavengames and Moddb - check out the mods and downloads
Discussion for a future re-release - post your ideas and suggestions for a re-release
Gog and Steam page links - vote and discuss for a re-release on these sites

If you or someone you know likes rts games, strategy, history, warfare, civilization, etc - check out RON!

Both games were bought in 2013 and will probably be re-released at some point in the future. The idea is that if more people post, discuss and spread links around on HG, Moddb, Steam, Gog, Facebook, Youtube, etc then the rights buyer may read and see there is interest.

If you're a fan of both games that's great. If you're a fan of Rise of Nations and would like to see a Rise of Nations 2, this may be possible to mod inside Rise of Legends as a Rise of Nations 2 "total conversion" mod. It will require the publisher to enable full modding capability for both games so supporting both and not just one game might help bring about more possibilities.

Hey all,

Just wanted to post here and say that there are some forums and downloads available for Rise of Legends at the Heavengames fansite here: Rol.heavengames.com

Motter has released an unofficial expansion to the game as well as a mod adding all the campaign heroes to regular skirmish play which you can find here: Rol.heavengames.com

It seems that's the only remaining active ROL forum on the internet besides comments on various sites. We still need some knowledgeable people to help mod the game so if you or anyone you know has the skills feel free to register and join the discussion and hopefully some projects!

I will be cross-posting and uploading a lot of relevant ROL content to this page and the HG site as well as these are the remaining active ROL sites so spread the word to any interested, maybe we can finally get some things going. :)

My skillset is limited, but ROL was a longtime favourite and I'm looking to bring its brilliant world back into the spotlight in some small way. We'll be in touch.

....no. Just no. This setting is way too brilliant to simply be used as a foundation for a project involving established universes, let alone sci fi.

Disappointing that there are no mods. Mainly because I'm worried this absolutely awesome setting will disappear into the mists of time and never be heard from again... :(

Seriously, the developers appear to be working on some sort of singleplayer WoW facsimile; why would they pick such a generic setting when they had this IP to work with? It's sad that RoL seems doomed to obscurity.

Yeah. Maybe more games will support Blender or there can be more well-made plugins for Blender in the future.
