Publisher Named, New Screens - Gods and Heroes: Rome Rising -

Remember this game? Gods & Heroes got a lot of press last summer, then fell off the radar. The other game in production over at Perpetual Entertainment - who are also hard at work on Star Trek Online - returns to the spotlight today with the announcement that Platform Publishing, a division of Sony Online Entertainment, will bring the game to market.

They also sent out two screenshots with the release - included in the news item - and released a bunch more on their re-launched website.


Mythological Online Action/RPG featuring Squad-Based Combat, Powers of the Gods

SAN DIEGO, CA – February 28, 2006 – Sony Online Entertainment’s Platform Publishing™, a cross-platform publishing, distribution and marketing label, today announced an agreement with San Francisco, CA-based online games developer Perpetual Entertainment to co-publish its online action role-playing game, Gods & Heroes: Rome Rising.™

Gods & Heroes: Rome Rising features an innovative style of combat not seen in other online multiplayer games, courtesy of Perpetual Entertainment Lead Designer Stieg Hedlund, lead designer of the best-selling RPG Diablo II. Reminiscent of an Action/RPG, combat moves can be linked together and even include “finishing” moves to provide a more dynamic, dramatic and visceral feel to battles. Squad-based combat is another unique aspect of Gods & Heroes: Rome Rising; players will earn and command Non-Player Characters (NPCs) in a variety of strategic groupings to form individual squads, create unique formations and implement combat tactics for these squads to execute on command, maximizing their power in combat.

“We are excited about Gods & Heroes: Rome Rising and about our relationship with the talented people at Perpetual,” said John Needham, senior vice president and chief financial officer, Sony Online Entertainment. “Our relationship with Perpetual Entertainment is an important element of the overall business strategy of Platform Publishing.”
