Empire Earth Gold Edition (2001)

About This Game

Control the destiny of a fledgling civilization through as many as 500,000 years of human history. From meagre beginnings you must exploit the natural resources around you to build an empire capable of dominating the Earth. But your rise to supremacy will not go unchallenged. As was the case throughout history, rival civilizations are certain to oppose you every step of the way.

New technologies, buildings and weapons become available as your civilization progresses through history. But bear in mind that advancement does not necessarily mean success. Your civilization might flourish during one Epoch only to be crushed in the next.


Empire Earth is a history-based real-time strategy game. Empire Earth uses 3D graphics.

The game itself contains many unique and innovative features, including a “morale” system, which directly affects individual units statistics. It also incorporates a “hero” system. Heroes can be built at the town center or capital.

There are two types of heroes, Strategist heroes who heal surrounding units and can demoralize enemy units while Warrior heroes give morale to surrounding units and have a greater attack power.


  • The Gold Edition includes the original Empire Earth and the expansion pack The Art of Conquest
  • Recreate and take part in the greatest battles in human history
  • The evolution of war from prehistoric times to the hypothetical “nano era”
