Sydney, Australia, Januarii XX, MMXXII – Chalkedon must fall! The city dared to stand up against the Roman Empire, this cannot go unpunished! Legio Victrix has laid siege to the city and is preparing for an assault. Legatus, you must choose the strategy. We have several goals to fulfill: The roman hostages must be freed, the enemy catapults must be taken out and we have to eliminate the enemy commander. Choose wisely, the missions on which you send your specialists, as you will have to divide your team in order to manage many manoeuvres at one time. Consider the consequences: the more catapults you manage to destroy, the easier the direct confrontation will be – but will you have enough Speculatores to free the hostages?
In Expeditions: Rome you’ll command large-scale battles at the end of each conquest in Greece, Egypt, and Gaul. Each of these final encounters is separated into different steps, with consequences that will follow you from one step to the next, and can even affect the outcome of the campaign. These missions feature covert operations, feints, frontal assaults – sneak into enemy fortifications, burn bridges, take out key opponents or objects and bring glory to Rome!

About Expeditions: Rome
The future of Rome is in your hands: What will your legacy be?
Take on the role of a young Legatus whose father was murdered by an unknown political opponent, forcing you to escape Rome and take refuge in the military campaign to subdue a Greek rebellion. Step by step, you increase your military prowess, strengthen yourself in the forge of combat, and become the Legatus everyone learns to both respect, and to fear.
In Expeditions: Rome, you exert the will of Rome through your actions across the world stage, from the bright blue coasts of Greece to the deep forests of Gaul. Decide how people will view you, and Rome. Will you strike with an iron fist, or speak with a silver tongue? Will you embrace the political heritage of the Republic, or carve your own path as you navigate the complex politics of the Roman Senate? Every choice matters as you decide the fate of your legion, your close companions, and of Rome itself.
