Matrix Games announces QVADRIGA, a chariot racing strategy game. The game's
with details, and since the game is heading into the beta phase,
to sign up as a tester. Here's word:
During the Roman Ludi, not only
gladiatorial fights or theatrical plays entertained the public, but also the
thrilling, fast and dangerous races of the aurigas driving their four-horse
chariots: the quadrigas! Symbol of Victory and Triumph, and seen as a Godly
chariot (Apollo was often represented riding one) on the earthly world, it was
the most important chariot adopted in ancient Roman circus racing. Rushing fast
inside the Circus Maximus each auriga could not rely only on his horses speed,
but also had to use strategy and wit.
Now, with QVADRIGA, players will be able to revive the historical races of
Ancient Rome and became the greatest driver of the ancient world!
The game features historically modeled circuses with all their styles and
particularities. Variable circuit sizes, lengths and shapes, from the classic
Greek oval hippodrome to the standard Roman circuses for a total of 43 unique
arenas. Thanks to the dual game system you can play the way you like: paused
turn-based gameplay (static) or continuous real time action (dynamic). Events,
trade, upgrades and bonuses; four factions, a huge campaign system with seven
regions to travel and an expert AI. QVADRIGA is all this and much more!
