Romans: Age of Caesar Interview

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kdag6-bTyfg
This week Firefly co-founders Simon Bradbury and Eric Ouellette shed light on the origins and future of our newly-announced online city builder! Tracing their professional roots back to past studios and a certain roman city sim that started it all, Simon and Eric discuss how all roads have led to Romans. Having coded, designed, produced, composed music and created art for all three entries in the classic Caesar series, many of Firefly’s current staff and collaborators are mining this rich strategy heritage for our new MMO. Add this to Firefly’s experience developing CivCity: Rome and you have the perfect team to take this classic gameplay online in Romans: Age of Caesar!



Developed by a new internal team, Romans: Age of Caesar is our spiritual successor to Stronghold Kingdoms and a completely new strategic challenge for fans of Firefly Studios games. We’ll be levelling up the city builder with Romans by introducing shared roman cities and a single world map on which all players can trade, battle barbarians and explore the empire! Governors will work together to share resources and defeat common threats as they contribute toward the prosperity of their central city. With each new city built players will be able to explore further out, discover new resources and restore the empire to its former glory.



Planned for PC and mobile with full cross-platform play, Romans: Age of Caesar is scheduled to release later this year.

About This Game



Cast as a feudal lord or lady, players begin with a single village and keep. They must design and defend their castle before turning their eye to the rest of the country, Europe and the world! Whatever path they choose players will find strength in numbers as they band together, uniting with local Factions and player-led Houses.

Key Features

  • 🏰BUILD Your Stronghold - Crush the invading hordes with impenetrable castle defenses. Then launch a counterattack!
  • ⚔️BESIEGE Rival Lords - Attack sworn enemies without warning, cripple their economy or engage in political mind games.
  • 🏹RESEARCH New Technology - Are you a farmer, trader, diplomat or warlord? Explore a vast tech tree to specialize and expand.
  • ⚜️LEAD Your House - Join a faction, attack its enemies, return triumphant and rule over entire countries with your bannermen!
  • 🌍PLAY Anywhere - Wage war with thousands of other Lords playing the full game together on PC and mobile.



Besiege the castle that’s never been taken, overthrow ruthless tyrants, bankroll your faction’s war efforts, pillage your neighbor’s resources, peacefully raise cattle or do it all! Factions, elections, liege lords and their vassals come together to form a feudal community of real players with whom to discuss strategies and build allegiances.



While an impregnable castle should be at the heart of any kingdom, you can also specialize with a vast research tree. Starting as a humble peasant each promotion provides valuable research points to spend on trading, diplomacy, warfare, farming or religion. Beware as your power grows so does your responsibility. Your vassals will look to you for leadership and you may find yourself fighting for the crown itself!
