Gods & Heroes is a massively multiplayer RPG of mythic adventure in the ancient world featuring epic God Powers, intense squad-based combat, and creatures drawn from the myths and legends of the ancient world.

Gods & Heroes: Rome Rising is a full scale action adventure MMO that immerses the audience in Roman mythology. Players step into a hero’s sandals to battle monsters and command minions while seeking favor from the gods.

In Gods & Heroes: Rome Rising, gamers take on the role of a Demigod and celebrated hero of the Roman army. These brave warriors set out on a quest for vengeance against an ancient enemy, the Telchine gods, who have returned to topple the empire and avenge their defeat at the hands of the Olympian gods.

“The unique Roman setting and deep gameplay of Gods & Heroes is a fantastic title to add to our portfolio,” said Melanie Mroz, CEO SouthPeak Games. “The team at Heatwave Interactive is creating a truly fantastic massively multiplayer title that we’re sure will have excellent broad appeal, from dedicated MMO players looking for something new, to those interested in a rich story inspired by ancient mythology.
