Alright, it’s time to dive deep into history with the upcoming addition to Hooded Horse and Mohawk’s strategy game: Old World – Pharaohs of the Nile. Due to release on Linux, October 4, 2023. This expansion offers a riveting journey back to the era of Ancient Egypt’s New Kingdom.
For starters, let’s talk about the Pharaohs of the Nile story. You’re about to embark on an adventure through one of the most powerful ancient empires – the Kingdom of Kemet. Which is an old term for Egypt. This isn’t just reading history from a textbook; it’s living it. Since you are due to navigate the incredible tales from Kemet’s birth to its majestic golden days. Followed by the tough internal challenges against mighty religious groups. But, hold on to your seat because there’s also the epic clash against the Sea People during the Bronze Age collapse.
What makes Pharaohs of the Nile stand out is its unique features. One such highlight is the Nile River flooding cycle, which you’d need to manage wisely. There’s also the Ma’at meter. In simple words, it’s a tool to measure how balanced and harmonious your nation is. So get ready to meet a slew of fresh characters and face intriguing events. Oh, and if you’re a fan of legendary stories, you might recognize some elements inspired by the Old Testament’s Book of Exodus. Pharaohs of the Nile is due to offer an added layer of depth for those who are keen on spotting such gems.

And to add a touch of authenticity, you can pick from dynasties like Piye, who brought Kush and Egypt together. Or the brave Warrior Queen Amanirenas, who boldly challenged the Roman Empire.
