Territory Conquest Games Recommendations
The games listed below are just some of the best strategy games in which you can conquer enemy territories trough combat or diplomacy, but the genre is much richer than that and it would be a sin to forget about other great strategy video games that allow you to capture other lands such as Crusader Kings II, Europa Universalis series, Stronghold, Stellaris, Age of Empires franchise or other Total War video games not mentioned in this artcile.
Total War Video Games Series
Conquer your enemies’ territories in one of those great games.
Total War: Rome II
|Developer||The Creative Assembly|
Step into shoes of a great Roman emperor, and, what is typical to the series, try and conquer as many territories as it is possible. Of course, do not forget about many other significant aspects of ruling your empire.
Besides the war part, the game is filled with mechanics that let you trade and negotiate with your rivals. The map is divided into several sectors, each with its main city and a number of villages belonging to it. Each village can specialize in different branches of economy (such as mining, fishing, horse breeding and so on).
Total War: Warhammer & TW: Warhammer II
|Developer||The Creative Assembly|
|Release year||2016 & 2017|
The Total War series steps into the epic world of Warhammer. This means managing your own civilization in a completely new and refreshed context. Forget about the royal guards and ordinary infantry and embrace mystical beasts as your troops!
A completely new perspective on the Total War series brings a fresh breeze into the genre of turn-based strategy games. Although it is still a Total War title, the game setting is basically a Warhammer one, including the world map and the playable units.
Hearts of Iron IV
|Developer||Paradox Development Studio|
Hearts of Iron IV is a strategy game set in the times of World War II and puts us as the leaders of one of the countries of that period. Whether we choose Poland, Germany, France, or anything else – our task will be to conquer the territories of our opponents.
The world map is complex as is the categorization of the available units. The countries are divided into states, which are then composed of a number of smaller provinces and possess a few different slots for the development. Moreover, some units, such as infantry, can be further customized and upgraded by the player.
Sid Meier’s Civilization VI
|Release year||2016 (PC), 2018 (Switch), 2019 (PS4, X One)|
Unlike the previous games, Sid Meier’s Civilisation series has always been somehow special, as those games are usually not so much about military affairs and combat, as more about economical and cultural development.
The sixth installment is no different here. The world map is divided into comfortable hexes. Each field (or tile) has some properties, like a field where docks can be built, or a field with a mother lode and a possibility of building a mine here to gather resources. Both cultural as industrial development is the key to victory.
