"Legion Arena" is a role playing strategy game created on a massive scale, providing gamers with more than just the pure taste of battle. Set during the period of the Roman Republic, players take command of a band of simple peasant warriors and train them into a formidable fighting force. With each victorious battle, gamers can reap the rewards of fame, money and experience along with the opportunity to 'level up' their units. Troops will learn hundreds of new talents through their field experience, and will progressively upgrade their skills with each new combat they face. Gamers can play as the Roman Empire and Celtic Clans through over a hundred scenarios and must use calculated strategies in an attempt to crush their Roman enemies on the front line-Fighting for the pride and glory of the battlefield!

"We're delighted to be working with Strategy First again. They did a superb job for us on the original "Legion." "Legion Arena" is a much more advanced and visually pleasing game, and we expect another success story this time," said Iain McNeil, Lead Designer at Slitherine Software.

"We're very pleased to be publishing "Legion Arena" in North America. Slitherine Software is well-known for developing high quality strategy games, and from what we've seen so far, "Legion Arena" will be their most ambitious and addictive game to date," said Pro Sotos, Business Development Manager at Strategy First.
