''Hyrule Conquest'' (formerly known as ''Hyrule: Total War''), is fan total overhaul mod for the free Real Time Strategy game ''VideoGame/ZeroAD'' based on the ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' series. Created by modder [=UndyingNephalim=], it allows players to take command of many iconic characters and races from the series in a RTS format.

Formerly a mod for ''VideoGame/MedievalIITotalWar'' started in 2011, the game was ported to 0 A.D.'s Pyrogenesis engine in 2017, due to the former's engine limitations, with regular updates adding in more characters and playable factions. Sweetening the deal in the porting is that, while ''Medieval II'' costs $19.99 on Steam, ''0 AD'' is 100% free, meaning more people will have access to the mod, and is also 100% open-source, meaning the creator has free reign to make the game however he wants.
