User Descriptions

In the game, the player controls a legatus who investigates the death of his father and travels throughout the Roman Republic and nearby nations as they expand Roman influence across the world. The game received mostly positive reviews from critics, who praised the game's strong gameplay elements and strong plot elements, but criticized its legionary battles for being weaker than the tactical gameplay and the length of time that battles could take. Each campaign region is a different "Act" inside of the game. In the legionary battles, the player assigns a Centurion to lead the attack, and can prepare the army before the battle to raise the odds of victory. Story-based battles often have objectives outside of defeating all enemies and sometimes can be won without engaging in combat; in one instance, a mission requires the player to quickly steal an Olympic trophy. In Expeditions: Rome, the player controls a legate in the later years of the Roman Republic. Real historical figures like Cicero, Julius Caesar, and Cato appear in the plot, although the game takes historical licenses with these people; the presence of the player character dramatically alters the path of Roman history throughout by his actions . After the death of his father from unknown political opponents, the player character flees to the armies of Consul Lucullus during the Third Mithridatic War. Logic Artists, the developers of the game, presented the game idea to THQ Nordic in 2018, which is when full development began in earnest. Concerned about the lack of variety in enemy types sometimes found in historical games, Logic Artists attempted to diversify the enemy character classes in a way that would make the user experience more enjoyable.
