The GMT site is well worth a visit this week - for the newly posted sneak peeks at the Barbarossa to Berlin map and the Napoleonic Wars map, as well as a whole raft of new games announced on P500. This list includes the mighty Rise of the Roman Republic (Volume 1 of "The Ancient World"):
The Ancient World is actually the name for a (projected) massive series of games that will cover virtually every war and campaign in ancient history on the same scale and scope that the legendary "Europa" series did for WWII. Each game and module in the series will add maps, units and all the personalities that will enable gamers to play, in some (but not daunting) detail their favorite periods.
Not sure I would ever go for a monster like this, but I'm glad that such projects are still undertaken.
