Always fancied yourself as some kind of glorious Roman legion commander? In We are Legion: Rome for Xbox, Playstation and PC you’ll be found treading those exact footsteps, as the newly-announced action-adventure RPG lets you join the brotherhood of steel.
We are Legion: Rome has been announced as being in development by Titanite Games, with publishing rights handled by the team at the Game Factory. It’s coming to Xbox (we’re guessing Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S), Playstation (again, let us assume PS4 and PS5) and PC, through Steam – a place where you can wishlist it right now.
We are Legion: Rome tells of how the Roman empire would not have become the global power of its time were it not for its extremely well-trained, loyal, brutal, combat-experienced, goal-oriented, and ruthless soldiers. Formed in armored legions and armed with swords and shields, they moved forward as unstoppable waves, leaving behind only burned ground. This is where you come in, working as one of these legionaries, someone who thinks highly of themselves. You despise those you consider barbarians and blindly believe that Caesar’s way is the only way.
Things look set to play out as an action-adventure RPG set during antiquity, heavily focused on varied directional attack-based combat. We are Legion: Rome will give you the chance to face dozens of demanding opponents on many battlefields, each of whom will require a different strategy to achieve the goals the Roman empire sets for its legions: from surrounding the enemy and setting fires, through operating siege machines to holding position after securing a victory.
As a Roman legionary you’ll be able to join various cohorts of different specializations. The defensive cohort will require the use of a shield, short sword, and particular skillset, while the offensive one will give you a good idea of combat during antiquity while testing your ability to counter and fake stabs. After a battle, you’ll be able to relax at your camp while customizing your character, learning his story, and the game’s fictional background.
In all, the main features of We are Legion: Rome on Xbox, Playstation and PC include:
- Join the brotherhood of steel – The legion is you, and you are the legion. Without your brothers in arms, you will achieve nothing, just like the legion needs every legionary to be strong and effective.
- Enlist with Rome’s most elite troops – Be faithful, punitive, and follow orders without thinking twice to get promoted and quickly reach the top of the military hierarchy.
- Dive into the legion’s life and the rules that drive it – A legionary’s reality is not only combat and battlefields, but also mutual relations and everything that makes up camp life.
- Your survival depends on your equipment and skills – Depending on the cohort you decide to join, you’ll need to equip yourself with the proper weapons and develop a skillset essential for success.
- Fight for the glory of Rome – Face enemies in brutal encounters, execute tactical tasks, conduct sieges, and try to maintain captured footholds, all in the glorious name of Caesar.
- Learn the true face of an ancient war – Everything from armor and weapons, through combat tactics and fighting style, to the overall look of the battlefield.
- See how love and hate intertwine – Some say that with every life you take, you lose a part of yourself and that only love can save you from the horrors of war. Try to protect your humanity so as not to lose yourself in hateful madness.
