Eidos Fact Sheet
Praetorians is an epic 3D troop-based strategy game set amidst the
political machinations of an emerging Roman Empire. Gamers will be transported
back to the dusty battlefields of Egypt, the combat theatres of Gaul,
and finally to the heart of the Empire itself. Gamers will attempt to
defeat thousands of different troop types and war machines, all with
special skills and individual strengths. Praetorians emphasize strategy,
and gamers must learn to combine their units and exploit the weakness
of the enemy. As players get closer to the Emperor, things become even
more difficult as they must face the elite Praetorian Guard, the most
powerful and deadly fighting force in the Empire.
Played out in jaw-dropping 3D visuals - from the immense scale of the
Pyramids right down to the individual centurion, Praetorians is stunning
in its detail, scale and beauty. The game is also incredibly intuitive,
belying its sophisticated game engine and allowing skilled strategy
gamers and beginners alike to fully immerse themselves in the story
with absolute ease.
