'Disciples II: Rise of the Elves' Goes Gold

Strategy First is pleased to announce that the next chapter in the award-winning Disciples series, the stand-alone expansion pack titled Disciples II: Rise of the Elves has gone gold. The Disciples series has sold close to 400,000 copies worldwide and has received countless awards for its graphics, gameplay and unique twist on the fantasy strategy genre. Disciples II: Rise of the Elves will ship to retail stores on November 20th, 2003 with a SRP of $29.99 and an ESRB of T for TEEN.

“In my opinion, the Elven campaign is the best thus far in the Disciples series,” says Pro Sotos, Product Manager at Strategy First. “With the added gameplay features, this campaign is extremely dynamic. Just ask anyone here as playing ROTE at lunch time has become a must!”

Disciples II: Rise of the Elves is a milestone in the Disciples universe. For the first time, Disciples fans will be able to play as the elder Elven race as they struggle to reclaim their forests from the four primary forces in Nevendaar. Driven by an unpredictable god who urges them to battle, the Elves begin a massive march towards their fate.

The noble Elves rule their people from elaborate fortresses within the trees. They adorn themselves with ornate armor and prefer councils or negotiations to conflict. Their queen is a just leader, preferring the path of peace for her kind. The noble Elves owe much to the Empire…

The wild Elves have become forest predators. Their intolerance of the civilized world has reached new extremes and they have reduced themselves to highwaymen and bandits. They tolerate the noble bloodline, but do not respect it. The thought of their race allying with another is appalling.

As one tiny oracle heralds the unquestionable will of Gallean to lash out against his timeless enemies, the Elves must unite their scattered tribes.
