Armies of Exigo is a PC Real Time Strategy game developed by Black Hole Entertainment and published by EA. A fairly generic RTS with strong similarities to Warcraft III and StarCraft. The game's major twist on the genre is the 'dual-layered map system', which allows you to delve deep underground and explore caves and caverns, then tunnel to the surface to ambush your enemies.
Armies of Exigo feature's three different armies: The empire, the fallen, the beasts.
The empire represents the human side. "comprised of valiant knights, hardworking peasants, mystical elves and others". The empire is lead by the mage Alric do Rei.

A brave and battle-tested knight dedicated to protecting the empire from the growing threats from the beasts and from the more tenuous new threat posed by the fallen, Dunehelm is instrumental in the fight against encroaching evil.
Lady Tierna and her giant eagle, Silver Wing, lead the elite Valkyrie warriors. the daughter of the King of the Northern Elves, Lady Tierna remembers and honors the old alliance with humans to defend the realm against invaders, be they beasts or Orcs.
