Armies of Exigo is a real-time strategy video game for Microsoft Windows. The game was created by Black Hole Entertainment released in 2004 and distributed by Electronic Arts. One unique aspect of the game is that it has an underground mode. This makes the game more challenging as the player has to work on two fronts and might have an army come from an unexpected area.
In October 2006, EA shut down the online game servers.
The gameplay appears to be very similar to Warcraft III, especially considering the factions involved: The Empire (Humans, Elves, Dwarves, etc.), the Beasts (Lizardmen and other barbaric humanoid creatures), and the Fallen (Undead and eldritch monsters). The player has to gather resources (gold, wood, and gems) to produce units and buildings, as well as to research spells and upgrades. The player can also select units and give them orders to attack, move or build. Different unit types are built at different structures.
It follows the “old-school” style of RTS gameplay that was commonplace in the 1990s in titles such as Warcraft II, StarCraft and the Age of Empires series.
