Paradox Entertainment and Nobilis announced today that they have signed a French publishing agreement for Legion, a revolutionary strategy game based on the Roman Empire. The deal includes french speaking Belgium and Switzerland and the game will be released in the third quarter.

"Legion expands our catalog of strategy games into a new period and a tactical aspect. The French players will appreciate the great gameplay and we are glad to have a committed and aggressive publisher for this important market ," says Theodore Bergquist, CEO of Paradox Entertainment.

“Nobilis is proud to join with Paradox and add this great game to its catalogue. Legion has a tremendous potential and shows some really unique features that should appeal to the French audience, big fan of strategy games.” says Arnaud Blacher, CEO of Nobilis.

Developed by Slitherine Software, Legion transports players back in time, over two thousand years ago, before the world was ruled by Rome and when the next great empire was set to rise.

Players take control of one of the many tribes, city states or leagues in Italy at the time prior to Rome’s domination of the area. It was a time of change for the rest of the peninsula with monarchies in Rome, Etruria and other areas being overthrown by land-owning aristocracy and republican governments put into power. The time would come when armies would have to become organized, take advantage of terrain and make sure that the best formations were implemented to ensure victory.

In this epic game, players must control cities, allocate workers to collect resources, build fortresses for protection and train new regiments on some of the most spectacular battlefields based on accurate maps of ancient Rome. Up to 20 AI sides will compete against each other, with their own strengths and weaknesses relevant to the nations that would have been involved at that time. It is impossible to win by conquest alone. Careful use of diplomacy will be required to succeed!

Gladiators get ready, the Roman Empire is yours for the taking!
