The year is 1435 AD. Rival states and old grudges have come to a head. Tensions between Christian and Muslim cultures are exploding into bloody war between Britain and France in the West and the Ottoman Empire and Prussians in and East.
The lack of a stable rule has brought about a vicious anarchy where bloodshed is the norm; rebels stir the people to unrest and barbarians and raiders roam the land unchecked. The world needs a powerful leader to guide it back to peace. The dark ages are ending, and when the light of the renaissance shines upon the land, only one kingdom may rule. That kingdom must be yours.
The game is kept fresh with new systems already in development and through server-wide cooperative quests and contests. Build your empire, marshal your armies, defeat your foes, and climb the rankings to lead the world to a modern era.
Colonize Your Neighbors – Why do all the work yourself? Through Empire rising's colonization feature you can reign over your neighbors on your way to the top. Colonies pay you a percentage tribute of their production; valuable resources you can put toward continuing to build your empire.
Advance Through the Ages – You can't have a renaissance without learning new things! Start from the Dark Ages and upgrade your city to advance through the Feudal and Castle ages to reach the pinnacle; the Empire age.
