Romans – Open Beta Now Live!
We have just launched our open beta for Romans: Age of Caesar, which came out today alongside the game’s new beta gameplay trailer! Our co-op strategy MMO from Caesar III alumni Simon Bradbury and Eric Ouellette is out now in open beta, as we begin our march toward Steam and mobile launches in 2022!
Romans: Age of Caesar, the latest historical strategy game from Firefly Studios. Romans sees city states of up to 16 players rebuilding the empire as they share resources, re-establish trade routes and protect their cities from barbarian invasion. Classic city builder gameplay is taken online across the Roman Empire as players build, trade and fight alongside fellow would-be senators in a shared open world.
Featuring 16 players per city and thousands active across the empire, players must cooperate in order to rebuild Rome. Beyond their district lies an expansive empire map, where players can build cities, discover new resources and team up with otherwise rival city states. Sharpen those legions and engage in tactical combat to push back barbarian frontiers in PvE or engage in political warfare, forging alliances to claim glory in epic PvP battles. Battle or build alongside fellow players, defeating common threats and building the prosperity of each shared city.
While the ultimate goal is to be crowned Caesar, players must first work their way up through the senate before reaching the political endgame. Earning the confidence of their political allies and either rising with them through the chambers or betraying them at the opportune moment. Manoeuvre between different loyalties, positions and gods, to remain politically nimble and succeed in the final quest for power. Dare to become emperor and have your name known across the empire.
