Alea Jacta Est Announced

Matrix Games announces Alea Jacta Est, a grand strategy game set in the Roman Empire that is apparently looking to capitalize on the huge segment of the market that speaks Latin (on the remote chance you don't, the title translates to "the die is cast"). The game is due next week via digital distribution, and here's word on what to expect:

Alea Jacta Est offers a wide variety of scenarios, from the civil war between Marius and Sulla (and Mithridate of Pontus) from 87 to 82 BC, to the advent of Septimius Severus from 193 to 198 AD. An incredible amount of detail and historical accuracy has been packed into Alea Jacta Est from terrain to units to even the dilemmas and troubles the leaders of Rome actually faced hundreds of years ago. Using the successful and popular AGE engine, Alea Jacta Est will benefit from the ease of the team to create new mods, events, scenarios and more!

Oh Blue - you can be so cheeky sometimes! Honestly though, since turn-based strategy wargaming is so niche it kind of makes sense that the title appeal specifically to the wargaming history buff who is a fan of the Roman Empire, as they would most certainly understand the meaning of the title.
