The aim of Imperial Rome/Imperium Romanum is to take the role of a Roman governor, gather resources, organise and command your armies and build a prosperous and imperious settlement. They'll be a number of game modes, but the main campaign will be History mode, which sees you following a timeline based on real events in Roman history. The developer's Haemimont Games has focused on creating a realistic fact-based Roman environment, so they'll be tons of authentic buildings, including the mass entertainment venue of Circus Maximus.

To bring this period of history to life the team has stepped up to the challenge of creating a photo realistic environment, with intricately designed buildings, depth of field effects, terrain blending, grass rendering and realistic water reflections.

The games currency will be denarii and players will be able to purchase and construct a range of buildings, including fortifications, bridges, towers and seige machines, upgrade their units and will also be able to take advantage of the in-depth trade mechanics to barter with other provinces.

Throughout the game they'll be a number of factors that may affect your progress, including crime in the Province and natural disasters, such as floods and droughts.

Further details on the title will be released in the coming months and we'll have a more thorough hands-on look shorty. Imperial Rome/Imperium Romanum will be released in the UK in quarter one 2008.

It looks a lot like Glory of the Roman Empire. If it's any good I might consider buying it. Games like this generally appeal to me, but all the recent Roman builders have been crap. The aforementioned GotRE wasn't bad, but Caesar IV and CivCity: Rome were trash.

It's called "Imperium Romanum", not Romanium.
