In Gods and Heroes, players become classic heroes of the ancient world, born of immortal blood. As a scion of the gods, each player will have the opportunity to pursue his destiny through a series of Epic Quests that will span all levels of gameplay, over time commanding amazing God Powers and acquiring famous weapons and treasure of myth.
"By identifying what works and what does not, our closed beta testers will help shape the final version of the game," said Chris McKibbin, Co-Chairman and President of Perpetual Entertainment. "It's an exclusive opportunity to help us polish the final version of Gods & Heroes: Rome Rising, thus making it a truly legendary experience."
The game will be set in Rome around 300 BC, a time when the Republic is powerful, but Roman enemies including the Carthaginians, Gauls, and Samnites threaten the fledgling imperial holdings. Worse, the land is beset by terrible creatures, such as Gorgons, Cyclopes, and Furies. As heroes of Rome, players will take on missions to expand and protect the Republic, her interests, and her citizens, and will serve one of the twelve great Roman gods. Future expansions are planned to open up new lands and new pantheons of gods.
Gods and Heroes: Rome Rising will implement the most interactive, dynamic, strategic and engaging combat system of any MMG - challenging players before battle as well as during battle. Players will strategically select and train their NPC Soldiers in a variety of skills and abilities to form individual squads that meet specific challenges, and devise strategies and create formations for these squads to execute on command - maximizing the unique skills and abilities of each individual squad.
