Background

Celtic Kings: Rage of War is a real time game that blends strategy, role-playing and adventure elements. There are two modes of playing: adventure mode and strategic mode. In strategic mode, you play against computer opponents or other players on the Internet exercising your strategic and tactical skills to achieve objective victory. In adventure mode, you control a party of heroes and explore the world as the struggle between Caesar and the Gaul chieftain Vercingetorix evolves.

Gameplay

In strategic mode, you play against computer opponents or other players on the Internet exercising your strategic and tactical skills to achieve objective victory. You train and command many units, hire and develop heroes, acquire powerful artefacts and conquer strongholds and villages. Launch large-scale military campaigns against your foes to bring them to their knees. The game-play in this mode is similar to the traditional RTS gameplay.

In adventure mode, you control a party of heroes and explore the world as the struggle between Caesar and the Gaul chieftain evolves. You choose what side to support. You can betray your allies of yesterday. Or, you can follow the mysterious druids as they request your assistance. Command strongholds and large armies; take risky missions behind the enemy lines. Find powerful artefacts to support you. Make friends and foes as you try to reveal who are you and who you want to be
