Expeditions: Rome Released

Expeditions: Rome was released today. Despite the usual grumbling about the usual topics, it is by most accounts a pretty decent game. Unfortunately, this news has been somewhat overshadowed by our belated discovery that developer Logic Artists would be "winding down" following the game's release, with most of the staff joining a new NFT-based gaming venture under former CEO Ali Emek. Thus ends the story of the talented Danish studio whose activities we've followed since the dawn of the crowdfunding era almost a decade ago. Rome will be their swan song. Here is its release trailer and the accompanying press release:

Vindobona, Noricum / Hafnia, Daniae, Januarii XX, MMXXII: The hero or heroine of Expeditions: Rome is not off to a good start: father murdered, sister married to an enemy and on their way to Asia Minor, to serve in the legion, far away from Rome. Meanwhile, on board your ship, there is another vessel getting closer - of course, pirates!

In Expeditions: Rome you will play a young male or female roman soldier, making your way through history. Take command of a small group of praetorians and eventually become the Legatus a Roman legion. You'll gather a group of loyal companions, engage in tactical turn-based combat, learn new skills, loot and craft new equipment for your soldiers, and shape the fate of Rome. Expeditions: Rome offers over 50 hours of cRPG-gameplay and multiple ways to end the story.

Try before you buy? Download the Expeditions: Rome demo now on Steam, you can even continue playing from your savegame if you get the full game: https://thqn.net/rome-steam

Expeditions: Rome is available on Steam and GOG for $45. While Logic Artists will soon be gone, the Expeditions IP now belongs to THQ Nordic and creative director Jonas Waever has notably not joined his colleagues in the blockchain mines. So if the game does well enough, I suppose the series might just still have a future. I wouldn't bet on it, though.
