For more than two centuries, Rome has slowly expanded her control over the tribes of ancient Italy. But as her borders encroach on the proudly independent Greeks of the Southern coast, they call upon an ambitious young king from across the sea to come to their aid. Eager for glory, Pyrrhus, the “eagle” of Epirus, gathers his armies and sets sail for Italy. Commanding phalangites from Macedonia, cavalry from Thessaly, and rare War Elephants from Egypt, Pyrrhus will challenge Rome with the fiercest warriors of the Greek world. But the cost of victory will be high, and Pyrrhus' ambitions do not end at pushing back the Romans. The Eagle King believes himself to be the next Alexander, and does not plan to sail home until he has carved out a new empire of his own.
New Historical Campaign
Hegemony III's first historical scenario follows the campaigns of “The Eagle King”, Pyrrhus of Epirus as he battles against Rome and Carthage to forge himself a new empire. The all-new scenario includes scripted battles, historical notes and more than two dozen new objectives.

Wage war with powerful new units including Pyrrhus' War Elephants, Macedonian Phalangites, Thessalian Cavalry and more.
Expanded Naval Warfare
Expanded naval campaign with new ships, tactics and mechanics
I've been waiting for this game for a long time and the waiting sure was worth the time. The graphics are really good. The soundtrack and the sound effects are also done really well. Compared to the previous games there are a few differences. First of all, it's a lot harder which I like. Rome is bigger and stronger than any enemy in the previous instalments. All seems great so far but are there any cons you ask? Well not really, except for the bugs. Elephants and ships appear and disappear on the screen. Also when the Carthaginian invade there was a bit of lag. But I'm pretty sure these issues will get patched. I do indeed recommend this game and rate it 5 out of 5 stars!
