Firefly Studios, à qui l’on doit la série Stronghold, passe du Moyen-âge à la période antique romaine avec un futur nouveau city-builder option MMO pour 16 joueurs par ville dans lequel il s’agira de coopérer pour partager des ressources, d’établir des routes de commerce (avec probablement d’autres villes gérées par d’autres joueurs), et inévitablement de repousser des barbares. Comme ne le montre pas vraiment cette bande-annonce récapitulant juste le contexte du jeu.
Pour plus d’informations sur Romans : Age of Caesar, en phase alpha actuellement et dont la sortie est prévue sur PC et mobiles cette année sans plus de précisions pour l’instant, voyez le site officiel (qui là propose juste une préinscription à la version alpha).
Firefly Studios Announce Romans: Age of Caesar
Today Firefly Studios announced Romans: Age of Caesar, a co-operative grand strategy MMO and spiritual successor to their hit MMORTS Stronghold Kingdoms. Firefly has launched pre-registration for the game’s closed Alpha, with a teaser trailer announcing the title to prospective governors worldwide.
Following the success of Stronghold Kingdoms, with over six million players signing up to Firefly’s MMO debut, prototyping began on a spiritual successor that would become Romans: Age of Caesar. Building on their legacy of Roman sim games, Firefly went about designing an online city builder with thousands of players working together to rebuild the great cities of Rome. The result is a shared world builder that returns to the classic Roman setting designer Simon Bradbury and producer Eric Ouellette made their name with before founding Firefly Studios in 1999.
Offering classic city builder gameplay across on an online continent, Romans: Age of Caesar allows players to build and trade with everyone on the same map. With up to 16 players per city, governors must rebuild Rome as they share resources, re-establish trade routes and protect each other from barbarian invasion. Work with fellow governors to rebuild the great cities of Rome, revive the republic and restore the Roman Empire to its former glory!
Scheduled for release on PC and mobile in 2019, Romans: Age of Caesar is currently in closed alpha with players able to pre-register on the game’s official website:
