Expeditions: Rome is the next entry in the turn-based RPG series that will place players in the heart of the political landscape of Rome. As a young and promising Roman, you will get to write their history by learning the art of war to become the greatest Roman that ever lived.

With a rich, historical backdrop of Rome and Greece as their battleground, the fate of the young Roman solely rests in players' hands. In this guide, we explore everything they need to know about Expeditions: Rome, including the game's release date, gameplay, features and more.

When will Expeditions: Rome be released?

According to Logic Artists, Expeditions Rome is scheduled for release on 20th January 2022. The game will be available on PC via Steam, GOG, and the Epic Games Store. Before the game's launch, players can experience gameplay through a demo available now.

What is Expeditions: Rome's story?

Set in the historical-political landscape of Rome, players will assume the role of the game's protagonist, Legatus, who flee Rome to the military barracks of the Greek empire following the death of their father by a formidable opponent. Legatus must rise amongst the ranks as they increase their military proficiency, combat skills, influence, and honour to build a respected or feared legacy by many.

As they navigate their way in the political landscape within the Roman Senate, players will decide the fate of Rome based on the decisions they make. Will they pledge their allegiance to the Republic? Or carve your path out, forging a new lineage of political figures in Rome?

What features are included in Expeditions: Rome?

Expeditions Rome features a character customisation menu for players to create their version of Legatus. From facial and body features, gender, class, and skill set, their character's fate will influence the type of playstyle and environments.

There will be five companion characters available for Legatus to employ throughout the game's campaign. Each companion has their backstory, playstyle, and unique skills to assist or hinder Legatus's rise to power.
