The Roman Empire
Augustus, Julius Caesar, Mark Antony, Hannibal, leaders that became legend
during this chaotic time of Roman history. Now's your chance to join the ranks
of these great strategists and conquer Europe during the time of the Roman
Legion is a revolutionary, high-level strategy game, which unfolds during
the rich history that was the Roman Empire.
At the strategic level the player controls vast armies and must carve an
Empire from the assortment of tribes and city states that occupied ancient
Italy, Britain and France. At the tactical level the player must position their
armies to take advantage of terrain and make use of the best formations, to
ensure victory. Do you have what it takes to become the next Emperor?
Epic gameplay - there are large game areas, accurately mapping real
world locations. All maps are based on real atlases of the ancient world. The
size of the game world combined with the subtle interactions of the game model
make for a truly epic game.
20+ sides - each game can have up to 20 AI sides to compete
against, each with their own strengths and weaknesses, based on the nations
that would have been present at the time of the scenario!
Diplomacy - with so many nations its impossible to win by conquest
alone. Careful use of diplomacy will be required if you're going to succeed.
Huge realistic battles - choose how your troops deploy for battle,
controlling their formations, making best use of the terrain available and
allowing for their morale and experience. The combat model is being based on
historical data to give the most realistic look and feel ever seen in a
computer game. Hundreds of men will be displayed to give a really epic feel to
the battles. All uniforms and weapons will be based on historical data to make
sure they are as accurate as possible.
3D battlefields - the battlefield terrain will all be made up of 3D
rendered terrain. Height will be modelled and will effect the combat model.
Every location will have its own unique battlefield meaning up to 16,000 per
Multiple resources - collect 4 different
resources types, each with their own specialist uses and methods of collection
- Iron, Wood, Cloth and Food.
Detailed economics - control your cities, allocate workers to
collect resources, control city growth, train new regiments. Increase
production by constructing new buildings or upgrade your city hall to expand
the amount of land that can be worked. Build fortresses for protection and to
train better your soldiers.
Replayability - play each map a number of times in completely
different setting. E.g. Initially fight over Italy to unify the tribes into the
powerful nation of Rome. Later fight over the same map as the Romans when they
are invaded by the fearsome Gauls.
Historical Accuracy - throughout the design of the game we have taken great
care to ensure that the maps, the scenarios, the soldiers and the game engine
capture the flavour of the ancient world and its warfare
