Expeditions: Rome Released

Expeditions: Rome, THQ Nordic and Logic Artists’ historical turn-based RPG is now live on Steam, GOG, and the Epic Games Store, priced at $44.99 or your regional equivalent. The game is said to allow you to determine the destiny of Rome, conquer foreign lands, and navigate political intrigue during a campaign that will take you around 65 hours to complete.

Before purchasing the game, you can also play through a demo on Steam to decide if it’s something you will enjoy. And you should probably do just that, because according to this earlier VentureBeat article (thanks, RPG Codex), now that the game is live, Logic Artists is no more, with the majority of the team moving away from game development.

Instead, as part of Dynasty Studios, they will be exploring the world of digital Ponzi schemes as an NFT-focused company. At least the Expeditions license now sits with THQ Nordic, who may decide to do something with it at some point. But one way or another, this new development makes Rome the final part of the original Expeditions trilogy.

So, with that being the case, here’s the launch trailer for Expeditions: Rome:

And the game’s description:

The future of Rome is in your hands: what will your legacy be?

Take on the role of a young Legatus whose father was murdered by an unknown political opponent, forcing you to escape Rome and take refuge in the military campaign to subdue a Greek rebellion. Step by step, you increase your military prowess, strengthen yourself in the forge of combat, and become the Legatus everyone learns to both respect, and to fear. In Expeditions: Rome, you exert the will of Rome through your actions across the world stage, from the bright blue coasts of Greece to the deep forests of Gaul. Decide how people will view you, and Rome. Will you strike with an iron fist, or speak with a silver tongue? Will you embrace the political heritage of the Republic, or carve your own path as you navigate the complex politics of the Roman Senate? Every choice matters as you decide the fate of your legion, your close companions, and of Rome itself.
