Rise of Nations Summary
In a nutshell, imagine combining Civilization with Age of Empires, as well as throwing in a smattering of Risk or Total War and you get a game that looks, sounds and IS very impressive.
The 38 Studios auction that was held last week at Heritage Global Partners managed to claw $320,000 in proceeds, and that's thanks to Rise of Nations, Rise of Legends and Big Huge Games.
What didn't amount to anything was RPG IP Kingdoms of Amalur or its MMO counterpart Project Copernicus. There were no "acceptable offers" put forward during the auction.
The auction taking place early next month for 38 Studios' Kingdoms of Amalur and MMO Copernicus has attracted about two dozen interested parties. Among them are "well-known industry figures".
Exactly who will be present at the auction isn't known as interest groups must sign an NDA and the auction itself will be conducted via telephone. Copernicus 'unlikely to be bought and finished'.
