STARZ and Ubisoft have just announced a brand new fighting game called Spartacus Legends, coming to Xbox LIVE and PlayStation Network in early 2013. The game follows the journey of gladiators, from gut-wrenching training to raw, visceral combat in the arena, usually ending in death (ya think?).
The title will feature thousands of weapon combinations and a robust skill system, as well as gladiator customization. The game is poised to be a multi-player online multi-platform release.
The Spartacus franchise (TV) airs in more than 150 countries and has been translated into 15 languages. In the United States, the show is one of the highest rated cable series, with more than six million viewers watching each episode.
Back in 2010 there was in fact an iPhone app that came out called Spartacus, which was very disappointing, let’s hope that they do it right this time…but hey wait a sec, what about a PC release?
