Immerse yourself in the history of Ancient Egypt with 50 missions and over 100 gameplay hours in Pharaoh: A New Era, a remake of Pharaoh (and the expansion Cleopatra: Queen of the Nile), one of the best city builders from the golden age of Sierra Entertainment. Stone by stone, build your city and manage all aspects of its development to ensure it prospers and makes you a powerful and revered Pharaoh.

Develop your city by cultivating the fertile lands along the banks of the Nile valley. Erect the iconic monuments of Ancient Egypt, including the pyramids, the Sphinx and the Lighthouse of Alexandria. Build temples and mausoleums to help manage all aspects of your city's health and culture as well as the predominant polytheistic religion of the time.

Ensure your city is prosperous enough to deal with economic or political crises, or even plundering by enemies. A Pharaoh takes care of its people and does whatever it can to earn the favour of the gods.

Pharaoh: A New Era celebrates 20 years since the release of the famous franchise with a complete remake, including more than 50 playable missions and over 100 hours of gameplay. Rediscover the map and mission editor mode that allows you to shape your very own Egypt over thousands of years.

The "Campaign" mode teaches you the game basics while allowing you to experience a unique story in the heart of Ancient Egypt and explore all aspects of life in a thriving city.

You have everything at your disposal to build an entire city and manage all its fundamental elements to ensure it flourishes: the economy, internal and external trade, culture, health, agriculture, education, etc. To help you monitor your progress, various indicators show you the overall well-being of your city and its residents.

The journey back in time is really brought to life with this Ultra HD remake, which upgrades the gameplay mechanics to modern standards and completely redesigns the captivating soundtrack and gorgeous isometric 2D graphics.

Pharaoh: A New Era, the revitalisation of a classic strategy game of the late 90s, is coming very soon. It follows a recent trend of old-time strategy titles being spruced up and brought back for new and old players alike. We're no stranger to classic RTS or strategy here at ModDB, and neither is the rest of Impression Games' back catalogue - so here's five mods for their other games to get you into the swing of their particular loop!

This mod has a whole bunch of changes under its umbrella, setting the stage for a good excuse to come back to this fantasy original. Image artifacts have been cleared up, loot drops have been rebalanced, and a lot of units have received a second pass to give them a little more (or a little less) presence on the battlefield.

Older games are, naturally, designed for older hardware, and that means sometimes they don't stretch so well to fit the newest resolution standards for computer screens. Well, never mind that - seeing as modders have created HD patches for a number of Impression Games' titles, including Zeus: Master of Olympus. There's a special satisfaction to playing old games in crisp resolution, and a similar HD mod exists for Pharaoh if you want to get a taste of what to expect with A New Era.

Part of the fine of strategy games is building the biggest base, or the most sprawling city, but even modern games have to rein in players lest their architectural fascinations get out of hand. Enter the simply named EmperorLimitPatch, which removes limitations from buildings in Emperor: Rise of the Middle Kingdom. Now you can build the largest city in all of China, one befitting of a real Emperor!

Whilst resolution scaling mods are one way to improve visual fidelity and modernise an old classic, they do nothing - or in fact, sometimes make worse - the issue of old pre-rendered videos looking crusty on modern hardware. With the advent of AI upscaling, though, mods like this one for Caesar 3 can improve the fidelity of even these old videos, smoothing the transition for HD play.

Pharaoh - Easy Mode

Wrapping up with a mod for Pharaoh is fitting given what's coming up, but perhaps you've never played Pharaoh, or it's been a long while since you have? Never fear - if you wanted to brush up on your skills in a less intense manner, the Easy Mode mod for Pharaoh makes resources a little less strictly maintained, giving players an easier way into the challenging strategy of the endgame.

Unearthed and Uncovered

Pharaoh is one of Impressions Games' strategy titles, releasing in 1998. It put players in control of Ancient Egyptian society, and in charge of building up cities, handling the needs of their citizens, and managing the resources necessary to build a lasting empire. Following the trend of other isometric strategy games getting their own remasters (like Starcraft and Age of Empires), Pharaoh is coming back into the modern limelight with A New Era.


Pharaoh: A New Era brings the classic up to modern 4k resolution standards

Rolling Down The River (Nile)

Pharaoh: A New Era is coming on February 15th (just after Valentine's, luckily!), and will offer all the same content as the original, with thousands of years of ancient history to explore and this time, in brilliant 4k. You can check out the remake's Steam page here and add it to your wishlist, though pricing info is not yet public.
