Here’s a rundown on the game:
Build Rome together! A co-operative grand strategy MMO from a team of veteran city builder developers, Romans: Age of Caesar is the latest historical strategy game from Stronghold developers Firefly Studios. Players must rebuild Rome as they share resources, re-establish trade routes and protect their cities from barbarian invasion. Experience classic city builder gameplay online across on an entire continent, working with fellow governors to rebuild the great cities of Rome. Revive the republic and restore the Roman Empire to its former glory!
Following the success of Stronghold Kingdoms, Firefly’s first ever MMO and cross-platform game, prototyping began on a spiritual successor that would become Romans: Age of Caesar. Building on the development of their first MMORTS, the team went about designing an online co-op city builder with thousands of players working together to rebuild 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. The game is currently in a limited closed Alpha test with a Beta and eventual release planned for later this year on PC and mobile.
