Alongside revealing a host of new expansions for its existing projects at PDX Con, Paradox Studios debuted its latest game, Imperator: Rome.
Members of the development team took to the stage dressed as Ancient Romans to announce the title, led by Johan Anderson, Vice President of the studio, before a short trailer featuring marble depictions of key moments of Roman history played.
Targeting an early 2019 release, Imperator: Rome will feature a “huge map” that stretches from Britain to India and Scandinavia to Ethiopia. The title will be a “grand strategy” game. Over 7,000 cities will be featured for players to explore and conquer, as well as multiple unit types—including chariots and war elephants. Each population within the game will come with a unique culture and religion, and players will be tasked with keeping them happy.
Additionally, the title will incorporate multiple government types, comprising republics, monarchies, and feudal structures.
