0 AD Alpha 9, which has been crowned the title of “Ides of March”, has been released by Wildfire Games as of March 18th, 2012. Much to our excitement, the new alpha comes with a smattering of new features and a new Roman Republic faction. Wildfire Games has given us a new combat system, a new trading system, improved Artificial Intelligence, new animations, and so much more.
For you FreeBSD users out there, 0 AD now has had a few improvements to help you run the game.
There is also word that there may be coming a version fully usable on the Google Android platform. As of now it is experimental and uses OpenGL ES and the OpenGL Shader Language.
The Wildfire Games team has really been crunching away at 0 AD, making a ton of head way towards the beta announced to release sometime late this year.
