Mac game publisher and developer
announced today that it’s shipping Legion in North America. Legion is a strategy game set in Ancient Rome.
Legion is a turn-based strategy title that puts you in control of Roman Empire-era armies as you seek to conquer the world. The game features historically accurate maps based on atlases of the ancient world, complete with rolling 3D terrain that affects how your troops can move.
In addition to winning (or losing) epic battles, you must also allocate workers to collect resources, manage urban growth, train new regiments, increase production and build fortresses.
Developed originally by Slitherine Strategies, Legion was brought to the Macintosh by UK-based Mac game publisher
Virtual Programming Ltd.. MacCentral today confirmed that Legion will be the last game that Freeverse is distributing on behalf of Virtual Programming. United Developers subsidiary MacPlay and Virtual Programming announced a North American distribution deal
earlier this week
beginning with the forthcoming strategy game Europa Univeralis II, expected to be released in the U.S. this month.
System requirements call for Mac OS X 10.1.3 or later (or Mac OS 9.2 or higher); a G3 processor (800MHz or better recommended); 64MB RAM and 8MB of video RAM.
Freeverse sells Legion for US$19.95. It’s available directly from Freeverse’s e-store, as well as through Apple Stores and other Mac retailers.
