Commands & Colors: Ancients brings Roman warfare to Steam by end of August

I Cannae believe how this release came out of nowhere on us.

A digital version of Commands & Colors: Ancients, developed by HexWar Games, should release on Steam ^(https://store.steampowered.com/app/699870/Commands__Colors_Ancients/) by the end of the month. A scenario-driven game of historical battles, Ancients has 15 scenarios that span about 600 years of history. Ancients uses the series’ signature card-driven command system, introducing uncertainty and hesitation by limiting which units a player can activate at any given time.
The scenarios focus on Romans, Carthaginians, and Syracusans, placing a lot of emphasis on terrain and how to work around the limitations of units like chariots. This digital port of Commands & Colors: Ancients follows HexWar’s digital version of Commands & Colors: The Great War ^(https://store.steampowered.com/app/449460/Commands__Colors_The_Great_War/) from last year.

Commands & Colors ^(http://www.commandsandcolors.net/) is a long-lived wargame system by veteran wargame designer Richard Borg. It’s often held up as an excellent example of a balance between complexity and speed of play, primarily by limiting the range of player action and using quick, dice-based resolution. Borg’s system has been adapted to nearly every popular wargaming time period, from spears and chariots to tanks and guns to dragons.
The digital port of Commands & Colors: Ancients is scheduled to release on Steam ^(https://store.steampowered.com/app/699870/Commands__Colors_Ancients/) by the end of this month.
