Imperator: Rome announced at Paradox Interactive’s expo

Grand strategy title alters world history from Imperial Roman days

Paradox Interactive, makers of the grand strategy Crusader Kings, Europa Universalis and Hearts of Iron series, will turn its attention back to the Roman Empire with Imperator: Rome. for Windows PC. The game was announced at PDXCon 2018 in Stockholm, the publisher’s annual fan expo.

In Imperator: Rome, players will have the opportunity to reshape history going back to the reign of Alexander the Great.

“Rule any nation on the most detailed Paradox map ever stretching from the Pillars of Hercules to the far reaches of of India,” Paradox said in a statement announcing the game, “allowing you to build an empire to dwarf that of Alexander. Govern republics or monarchies, balancing the factions, and keeping the loyalty of your most capable generals.”

The game is due sometime next year, but Paradox was not more specific than that. This official site will let those interested sign up to be notified of more information.

Imperator: Rome will follow the Europa Universalis Rome offshoot Paradox launched for PC in April 2008. The last full title both developed and published by Paradox Interactive was 2016’s Hearts of Iron 4, also for PC.
