An Age of Chivalry is upon us!

It has already been out for three months, garnering over 1800 downloads and a totalling amount of 5 reviews, all awarding perfect ratings. It has astounded, amazed and intrigued and still continues to do so.

At over three years in the making, this is no ordinary mod pack. This is a total conversion of the ‘Age of Kings: The Conquerors’. This is ‘Age of Chivalry: Hegemony’. Including a staggering list of new buildings, units, technologies and additional systems, the mod even goes as far to include new ages, resources and Gaia objects, such as the gallows. And let’s not forget, by the way, the 18 new and fully altered European civilisations, from England, France, Saxony, Bohemia and Genoa – each with their own unique wonder distinct to its culture, such as England’s Westminster Abbey, France’s Notre Damme and Genoa’s San Lorenzo. With endless graphics changes, ‘Age of Chivalry: Hegemony’ is possibly the Blacksmith’s finest, most complete modification in all its history.

Only recently, the modification has seen a large update and is bigger, better and realised with a newer presentation. Including a new unit, the mounted crossbowman, a few more new buildings such as the Metz Cathedral and numerous technology, policy and combat dynamics updates, this mod pack deserves the community’s attention once more.
