Spartacus® Legends – Inspired by Smash STARZ TV Show – Battles onto Your Favorite Console

Enter the Arena and Forge Your Destiny Early 2013

SAN FRANCISCO - July 11, 2012 - Today, Ubisoft® announced the upcoming release of Spartacus® Legends, a fighting game that will immerse users in the visceral world created by the popular Spartacus original series produced and distributed by Starz Entertainment. Spartacus Legends is a unique gaming experience based on popular characters from the international hit series.

Spartacus Legends comes early 2013. Gamers will experience primeval gladiator moments, from training inside the ludus to brutal battles in the arena, all while striving to become a legend.

Featuring thousands of ruthless weapon combinations and a robust skill system, Spartacus Legends delivers a variety of tools for gamers to customize their gladiators and dismember their foes. Gamers will be able to fight as Spartacus, Crixus or one of their own created gladiators as they battle with friends offline or in online multiplayer to join the ranks on the worldwide leaderboards.

Liam McIntyre has been very involved with the Spartacus Legends team. In addition to allowing his likeness and voice to be featured, Liam, a big gamer himself, played early builds of the game and provided his creative feedback throughout the development process.

The Spartacus franchise (Gods of the Arena, Blood and Sand and Vengeance) airs in more than 150 countries and has been translated into 15 languages. In the United States, viewership for the show has grown with each season and is one of the highest rated cable series, with more than six million viewers watching each episode.

In the upcoming final season, Spartacus: War of the Damned, sees the return of Liam McIntyre (Spartacus), Manu Bennett (Crixus), Dustin Clare (Gannicus), Dan Feuerriegel (Agron), Cynthia Addai-Robinson (Naevia) and Ellen Hollman (Saxa). They are joined by Todd Lasance in the role of Gaius Julius Caesar, along with Simon Merrells as Marcus Crassus. Spartacus is produced by Rob Tapert, Sam Raimi, Joshua Donen and Steven S. DeKnight.

Comic-Con International: San Diego attendees will be the first to test their skills in the arena of Spartacus Legends at Comic-Con 2012 from Thursday, July 12 through Sunday, July 15 at the Starz Media booth.

Sad that Whitfield died. He was awesome in the first season.

So many possibilities here. They could do an in-depth RPG with an original story about a Gladiator rising to glory. It seems they are going down the fighter genre route though - huge potential if they give it a very interesting and strong fighting system.

Or they could spend little to get a game out and make money like they always seem to do with Movie and TV show licenses.

Hmmm...I dont think Im some big graphics whore, but this is bullshit. Its a fighting game, two stupid characters and background! WTF??? Does it have to be so fucking ugly on todays consoles??? Jesus....another fighting game, another failure in graphics way. STUPID STUPID STUPID!!! Even other more open world games look thousand times better than this. Dont get me wrong, maybe its gonna be entertaining and well balanced etc...but push these damn machines to limit. Its 2012 for fuck sake!!! Vomit textures, flat ground, no this ground is SUPER flat, some ugly over-bloomed light....look at his forearm, what is this??? Is he wearing a sweater? From his mom? There is simply no and I repeat NO fighting title in this gen consoles, which is visualy stunning and has some memorable physics.....no, just slightly remade textures, stupid juggling and shiting and just failing in every way. Current fighting games cant push consoles even to 50% of its capabilities. I just dont understand. WHY???

You just went on a mini-tirade about the graphics in a XBLA/PSN game. I can only image what happens when you stub your toe. You probably murder a small child.

First world problems.

  • nostradamus
