'Spartacus Legends' goes free-to-play on XBLA

Spartacus Legends going free-to-play on XBLA

Spartacus Legends, an upcoming fighting game based on the STARZ television series Spartacus, will be included on Xbox Live Arcade as part of the console's pilot free-to-play program, as well as a free-to-play title on PlayStation Network, Ubisoft announced today.

The upcoming title focuses on accessibility for users new to the game, and ensures that competition will remain fair by offering high-tier items for purchase which can only be used if the player has gained enough fame in-game.

Those playing can take on the role of Spartacus, Crixus, or a customized gladiator, and fight in both offline and online multiplayer while attempting to rank on the worldwide leaderboard.


The final season of the televised series, Spartacus: War of the Damned, is scheduled to air on STARZ in 2013.
