Logic Artists prepared a demo for anyone who might be interested in the upcoming Expeditions: Rome and it has just recently gone live.
Expeditions: Rome is an upcoming turn-based RPG that sets you in the boo...well, sandals of a young Legatus who has lost a family member due to political intrigue of ancient Rome. From that point onward, the Legatus will be trying to win wars and increase their influence among the power figures of the City of Seven Hills.
Players are able to create and customise their own Legatus by choosing their gender, name, skills and looks, as well as their party through building a force that strikes fear in the enemies of Rome.
One of the most interesting parts of Expeditions: Rome is the combat system, where the characters forego basic attacks and always utilise some sort of skill. It goes deeper as the skills are somewhat randomised but to avoid spoiling the discovery of an intricate game system, we will refer you to the free demo that was launched on December 20, 2021, exactly one month before the full release on January 20, 2022.
We will also have a review of Expeditions: Rome on January 18, just in case you didn't have the time to check the demo or decide whether the buy the game, based on what it offered.
System requirements for the game are rather humble so if you had a gaming rig that could compete with the previous generation of consoles, you should be fine. It does seem to be CPU-intensive though.
