Greetings once more from Mount Olympus!

He's here! He's arrived! And, he's mad! Ares, god of war, has descended from Mount Olympus to join his paramour in the world of Grepolis. Ares will wreak havoc on world Sandbox 20, which opens on Friday 12th . Of course, Ares brings with him new spells and mythical units. Read on to find out what's in store for the beta release of one of the most requested gods by our community of the entire pantheon.


Ares is the god of war.
Entire armies collapse at his feet in fear, his skills in combat know no equal. His most devout followers give their lives not only for the glory of a good death, but in the name of Ares himself, feeding his might and fury. A master of military tactics, he imbues warriors with the power of his most devoted martyrs, granting them unparalleled strength.
Much like his fellow deities, Ares introduces 4 new spells. However, he also introduces a new and unique resource type, Fury. Fury works similarly to god favor, but is unique to Ares. Fury can be gained by using Ares' spells listed below, and utilized to make the most of his devastating powers. Check out the table below for full details of his 4 spells. Fury is capped at a maximum of 5000.

True warriors of Ares show their devotion to him by sacrificing themselves once their training is complete.

Costs: 100 Favor

Sacrifice up to 100 population's worth of non-mythical units you own in this city and gain 1 Fury for every 1 population sacrificed.
Ares calls upon his most devoted warriors who have given their lives to fuel his Fury.

Costs: 380 Fury, 100% of current Fury

Consumes the entire fury pool. For every 10 points of Fury consumed this way, add one Spartoi to the offensive command (rounded down).
Ares channels his Fury through your warriors improving their combat strength with the might of his most dedicated subjects.

Costs: 100 Favor, 50% of current Fury

Improve offensive ability of all attacking units by 5% + 1% for every 200 Fury available. Additionally, 50% of your dead unit's population return to you as Fury once the battle has ended.
Inspired by Ares strength, warriors rush to the field of combat, to show they are worthy to stand by his side in battle.

Costs: 80 Favor, 10% of current Fury

All recruitment orders in the barracks are accelerated by 70% + 1% for every 100 Fury available for 6 hrs.
(times based on speed 1)

But of course, Ares brings with him some of the most terrifying creatures! When a city worships the god of war, he grants his followers with the ability to recruit 2 exclusive new units, the Ladon and the Spartoi. These unique and powerful beasts will be used to obliterate your opponents in the name of Ares!

Attacking targets with higher population than the
combined population of all Ladons ,
increases all Ladon’s offensive power in this attack.
For every 10 population difference,
Ladon’s offensive power increase by 30% (up to 150%).
Additionally, all other units in this attack gain 1%
attack power per Ladon (up to 10%; this does not stack with
Ladon’s offensive power increase).
Spartois take only 1 population space in transport ships.
