King Arthur is one of the best strategy titles to come out in recent years- it’s probably also one of the most criminally overlooked strategy titles to come out in recent years. Paradox Interactive would like to change that for the upcoming sequel, King Arthur II.
So who/what are the ‘dead legions’? So glad you asked:
King Arthur II: Dead Legions is a tale of revival, resurrection and revenge; the chronicle of how the greatest adversary of King Arthur came into power – and the terrible price he had to pay..
The fate of the Romans lies in the hands of a noble man Septimus Sulla while the Once and Future King lies wounded in the south. The time has come to unearth the secrets of Hadrian’s Wall while venturing into the mists of the underworld to find the fabled ghost legions of Rome.
Are you prepared to lift your blades and join Septimus Sulla on his road to glory and darkness? The fate of Britannia rests on your shoulders – pre-order King Arthur II – The Role-playing Wargame now – and witness the rise of the most frightening emperor to ever walk the lands.
Yeah, so, that for free- I’d be lying if I said that doesn’t sound awesome. As a pretty big junkie for the time period surrounding the fall of the empire, any game that plays off of that setting (even one with fantasy elements) is automatically on my radar.
