About Legion Arena
“Legion Arena” is a role playing strategy game created on a massive scale,
providing gamers with more than just the pure taste of battle. Set during the
period of the Roman Republic, players take command of a band of simple peasant
warriors, and train them into a formidable fighting force. With each
victorious battle, gamers can reap the rewards of fame, fortune, and
experience, along with the opportunity to “level up” their units. Troops will
learn hundreds of new skills through their field experience, and will
progressively upgrade their abilities with each new combat situation they
face. Gamers can play as the Roman Empire and Celtic Clans through over a
hundred scenarios, and must use carefully calculated strategies in an attempt
to crush their enemies on the front line—fighting for the pride and glory of
Arena” will be available for purchase at all major retailers this fall at a
suggested retail price of $39.99.
