Imperator: Rome is all set to launch its new content pack titled Heirs of Alexander. It puts focus on the successors of the empire established by none other than Alexander the Great. The new pack is scheduled to be released on February 16 priced at $9.99.

For those who can still remember their history lessons, Alexander III was more than brilliant. In more than a decade of war in Asia, he managed to become a legend in many kings and conquerors that would follow. However, when he died, it resulted in a civil war as everyone wanted to have a share of the pie: his empire.
