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.

This should get remastered like Age of Empires 2, Age of Mythology, and Rise of Nations! :D

Yeah, this game really is an underapreciated gem... An HD edition like AoE2 or AoM would be amazing.

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.

yea i think this game should have a mod to it, would be a good stepping stone for a stargate mod i think..

use some the characters in there for key characters from stargate and have a stargate in the mod also to traval from one side the map to other i think it would be real cool

....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.
