announces plans for Legion Arena
, an upcoming online strategy game set in
the days of the Roman Empire that "is due to be completed in a couple of
months." Here's a bit on the game, and its free online play:
Software are pleased to announce Legion Arena, their upcoming online strategy
game. Legion Arena puts you the player in charge of a Roman army and takes you
up against the enemies of Rome. You must recruit & train up your troops,
choosing the skills they will develop in an effort to create the most powerful
army. Games will be played entirely online & all results are passed back to the
server and logged and the playerís army ranked. And the best part isÖ itís free!
Legion Arena uses a totally new engine, but we wonít bore you with the details.
Itís enough to say that it allows fully 3D battles with thousands of guys. 3D
engines are a dime a dozen, so we want to focus on the gameplay and not try and
wow you with how many polyís we can push around the screen. You can judge that
for yourselves when you see the screenshots.
