Legion Arena is an online RPSG or Role Playing Strategy Game, and blends core gameplay elements from the RTS & RPG genres. Set in ancient Rome, Legion Arena puts the player in charge of their own army, which they must develop, nurture and train, transforming a bunch of peasants into a fearsome fighting force.
Legion Arena is set at the time of the Roman Republic. At this time, Rome were the fearsome Celtic tribes that would periodically raid from Gaul down into the heartland of Italy. Initially the player will only be able to play as Rome, but army packs will be released allowing other sides to be played. The first planned army pack is the Celtic tribes.
There are two main parts to Legion Arena, training your army & fighting battles. As the general in charge you choose which troops to recruit & how to equip them. You decide which skills they learn as they gain experience. When it is time for battle you choose which scenarios to challenge, how to deploy your troops and which orders to issue. Once the battle starts you can control your troops in real time by issuing new orders
Legion Arena will be fully 3D, with polygonal units and terrain. The focus will be on making realistic looking battlefields with thousands of men moving around. Using our bespoke 3D engine we can easily handle multiple levels of detail which will allow fast machines to make the game look amazing & slower machines to play with reduced visuals.
After initial release we plan to add in a 2D system that will allow older machines to play, but at this stage the focus is on getting the 3D engine completed.
