About Romans: Age of Caesar
A co-operative grand strategy Massively Multiplayer Online (MMO) game, Romans: Age of Caesar is the latest historical strategy game from developers Firefly Studios. The award-winning developers from London are best known for their Stronghold series of games. Team members from Impression games who were responsible for Lords of the Realm and Caesar II also joined.
The development for the title was to be the first-ever online cooperative city builder. The first announcement was in early 2019, following which came the alpha releases. It will be a free-to-play game with in-app purchases, confirms the studio.
In the game, there will be an Online Continent where the players will have control on an individual city. They must rebuild Rome as they share resources, re-establish trade routes and protect their cities from barbarian invasion. However, you can expect to experience classic city builder gameplay online. You have access to every resource available in game, working with fellow governors to rebuild the great cities of Rome to its former glory. So, the main idea is expand your districts and build around several players.
Once the rebuild is over, the rebuilding of the Roman Empire is your next big step. Do this by aligning with your countrymen and invade the barbarians.

Romans: Age of Caesar is expected to have a mobile release sometime around 2021. However, for many who are into MMO games, you can sign up on their official website to register and can take part in their closed alpha testing.
