Paradox Interactive Announce Imperator: Rome
Paradox Interactive faithful eager to return to the Roman setting the company explored in Europa Universalis: Rome can now look to a new series, Imperator, to give them their fix of marble columns and aqueducts.
Imperator: Rome is a strategy game in the vein Paradox is intimately familiar with, but with a large emphasis on the people who have an outsize influence on societies. Your imperator (and other characters) will have skills and traits which change over the course of a campaign, and how you govern is tied to these traits.
Of course, Imperator will have all the 4X bells and whistles: Various races and groups with their own approach to combat and diplomacy, government types, and barbarians.
The game does not have a release date as of yet and is currently announced only for PC.
It's curious to see Paradox make an entirely new series and set it in Rome instead of making a direct sequel to Europa Universalis: Rome, but hopefully Imperator will diverge enough from EU that it'll merit the name change.
