Firefly Studios has announced its "cooperative grand strategy MMO" Romans: Age of Caesar. The game allows thousands of players to work to rebuild Rome in a classic city-builder game and to "trade with everyone on the same map". The game features an infinite number of cities consisting of sixteen players each. The goal of each city is to work to establish government, form trading alliances and routes, and to create a collective army for city protection.
Building on Stronghold Kingdoms’ unique MMO design, Romans: Age of Caesar is an online co-op city builder with thousands of players working together to rebuild Rome. The result is a shared world builder that returns to the classic Roman setting designer Simon Bradbury and producer Eric Ouellette made their name with before founding Firefly Studios in 1999.
In Romans players must rebuild the empire as they share resources, re-establish trade routes and protect their cities from barbarian invasion. Experience classic city builder gameplay online across on an entire continent as you build, trade and fight together with 15 other players in each city. Revive the republic and restore the Roman Empire to its former glory!
Players can look for Romans: Age of Caesar to launch for PC in 2019, with mobile platforms coming at a later point. Interested alpha testers can head to the Romans: Age of Caesar site to sign up.
