As previously reported, Hegemony Rome: The Rise of Caesar is now available through Steam Early Access. A price has since been released and set at $25 or €25, if you’re unfortunate enough to be in the vicinity of where this game takes place. That’s Europe, by the way.
In this early version of the PC strategy title, it’s possible to partake in two chapters of its campaign, which will take pages from the Commentarii de Bello Gallico. This book chronicles one of Julius Caesar’s biggest accomplishments, during his conquest of Gaul.
Later on, two more chapters will be added to this section of the game. Additional mission objectives are forthcoming as well.
More of its accolades feature a terrain that is said to span one million square kilometers and support detail that is ten times that of its preceding installment.
In that setting, it’s possible to build an empire from slowly moving up in the fields. Settlements can be taken, buildings erected will help the war effort and that in turn grows your stake. Units can be trained and governors can be appointed as well.
Supply lines will make an important mechanism as well, with holding off key points resulting in bottlenecking opponents.
A developer diary comes with the launch of Hegemony Rome: The Rise of Caesar on Early Access. It mostly pitches the community feedback as its most appealing quality for improving the game.
