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.


Our Take
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.
