The Great Hunt is the fifth scenario of the Voices of Babylon campaign, a reworked version in the Definitive Edition of the map of the same name. The goal is to make the way across the map to find an Artifact.
"Karun River near Susa, 1120 BCE
The glory of Babylon has been restored by the reconquest of the lands formerly lost to the Elamites, and by ejecting the foreign Kassite rulers from our territories. However, King Nebuchadnezzar I vows that taking back former Babylonian land is not enough. The Elamites must feel his wrath in their homeland. Nebuchadnezzar I has ordered to attack Susa, the capital of the Elamites, just across the Karun river. In one of their previous raids, the Elamites carted off a golden statue of the most important god of the Babylonians; Marduk. Your task is to recapture it to strengthen Nebuchadnezzar's legitimacy back home. Peoples long oppressed by the Elamites will give you aid in your quest if you can locate them."—In-game campaign description
