Before Hitler attacked Russia, he unleashed the bestiary of his German blitzkrieg on Allied forces in the Aegean peninsula. Swift moving panzer formations, efficiently ruthless motorized infantry, elite paratroops and mountain troops, airpower and more - the might of the German military at its peak. His army swept over the Hellenic world toward Athens, the ancient seat of civilization.

Tweaks to the AI include a new aggressiveness that triggers the enemy’s attacks sooner and more frequently, and continues them longer. Coupled with a new prioritization for enemy objectives, these changes produce an even more formidable opponent to test a player’s tactical skill.

Modifications are not limited to enemy ruthlessness, however. Players can now execute attacks with subordinate headquarters with better control and dispersion of units. Junior commands ensure that a player’s attack initiates with no gaps in the line, though enemy fire can still cause units to retreat and gaps to appear.

Armored unit performance is also updated, to more accurately replicate the way such forces were employed during the Second World War. Standoff ranges are employed for frequently during attacks and movements, allowing armored forces to engage enemy infantry before rushing in too close and allowing flank shots with short-range weapons.

In Conquest of the Aegean, players get to take on the role of either the Allied or German commanders and pit their wits against either a computer controlled opponent or a human opponent via LAN or the internet.

Play as the Allies in a desperate fight to maintain a foothold on the southern flank of Europe using the mountainous Greek terrain to achieve concealment and surprise. Or fight as the Axis, driving hard achieve a quick victory with minimal losses.
