"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 very happy to announce that “Legion Arena” has shipped,” said Jay Podilchuk, Executive Producer at Strategy First. ““Legion Arena” gives gamers the chance to field the world’s bravest soldiers who risk it all for fame, glory and the good of the empire and still make it home for dinner!”

“We are really excited that the game is set to release across North America,” said Iain McNeil, Lead Designer at Slitherine Software. “We think that players will enjoy the unique mix of Role-Play, Tactics and Strategy, and the ability to beat up their friends from all around the World in Multi Player Mode.”

Revisit one of the most historic eras of all time with “Legion Arena.” Command, defend and expand the Roman Empire from Hannibal’s invasion to the rise of Julius Caesar.

Once Rome begins its ascent towards supremacy, take on the role of the Celts. Experience first-hand their battles with Caesar, their failed attempt to invade Greece and desperate attempts to defend Britain…

Fame, fortune and glory in that order are the keys to victory in “Legion Arena.”

“Legion Arena” is now available at major retailers, such as Gamestop and Best Buy, for a suggested retail price of $39.99. “Legion Arena” is rated “M” for Mature by the ESRB.
