Developer Logic Artists and Publisher THQ Nordic have announced Expeditions: Rome, the third title in the series after Expeditions: Viking and Expeditions: Conquistador. Since this is a Rome Playing Game (RPG) you can expect a story that's full of "memorable characters... where your choices matter [and] will shape the fate of Rome itself."
As Legatus, your father was murdered by an unknown political opponent, forcing you to flee Rome and to slowly build your political power through military conquest. You will lead a Roman legion against the forces of a rebelling Greece, and the campaign will have you uncovering political plots that have far-reaching consequences for the future of Rome.
Slowly you will increase your political prowess and strengthen yourself through the fires of combat, becoming someone who is respected and feared. During the game's campaign, you will decide how you're viewed throughout the world. You can strike with an iron fist or speak with a silver tongue, use politics how you're expected to or carve a path through the Roman Senate.
You'll be able to create your own Roman Legatus by customizing your character's look, gender, class, and skills to match your playstyle and role-playing fantasy. You'll be adventuring with five unique companions and discover their backstories and personalities, and you'll explore a fully realized world that will take you to North Africa, Greece, Gaul, and Rome herself.
This is an RPG, so you'll be able to loot, craft, and equip a variety of weapons, armors, and tactical items to customize your game even further. The game is available to wishlist on Steam, so be sure to send your warcamp there and check it out if you want to get your warface on. It's planned to release sometime this year, so stay tuned to TechRaptor for more details.
