There are several game modes, but certainly in the most time is going to happen in the imperial campaign, in which we choose one of three factions that given the choice, to try to get hold of the control of Rome. We begin in alliance with the other two and the SPQR ('Populusque Senatus Romanus') representing the Senate and People of Rome.

Now is the possibility that in a province where two different armies and do not engage in combat, as each may be occupying a different place. As we have said, therefore, this makes the strategy is left not only in combat but also in deploying your units on the campaign map, which is a very interesting improvement over the previous two games saga.

The goal for us will be to go creating an ever larger and therefore more powerful army. To do this, the conquest of each of the cities or sites that exist in the regions is essential, because once we have controlled the new units we can educate and create war machine.

But to do this, we must conquer these enclaves and thus much of the battles fought in Rome will focus. Although in this case we will not fight only from outside, but let us break down the walls or doors of the city or assault with towers and be able to fight in it, in the streets and all in an atmosphere perfectly well recreated.
