'CivCity: Rome' Announced - Screens

CivCity: Rome, an innovative city builder inspired by the world of Sid Meier's Civilization, invites players to shift focus from building a multi-city empire and zoom-in on the great cities of the Roman Empire, culminating in Rome itself!

In CivCity: Rome, gamers will recreate the glory of Rome by building a small settlement into a mighty imperial city. Featuring hundreds of buildings including gladiatorial schools, amphitheatres, the circus maximus, legionnaire forts, weapons workshops and much more, CivCity: Rome offers the most detailed look at Roman life ever depicted on a computer screen.

"Firefly Studios has always been at the forefront of the city building strategy genre," said Christoph Hartmann, Managing Director of 2K Games. "The unprecedented collaboration between Firaxis and Firefly Studios will allow gamers to see the world of ancient Rome unfold before their eyes."

"We're very excited to be teaming up with the talented folks at Firefly," said Steve Martin, President of Firaxis Games. "The teams at Firefly and Firaxis have worked hard to ensure that CivCity: Rome has the same depth and quality that gamers have come to expect from a Firaxis title."

"Firefly has a long history with the city building genre," added Simon Bradbury, Director at Firefly Studios. "CivCity: Rome is our latest take on the theme, and with the influence of Civilization, it's certain to be the best yet."

CivCity: Rome will be released for PC this summer.
