About

OVERVIEW

Gladiators of the Arena is a third person, hack n slash game with rpg elements. The game is centered around addicting combat gameplay, as well as the inclusion of a host of other features such as character development, team management, survival elements, and tactical strategy to create a full and balanced experience.

GAMEPLAY

Beginning as a slave gladiator, fighting matches everyday in the ludus, fighting for your life. Slowly working your way from the bottom of the ranks, gaining strength, upgrading your character, winning acclaim, recognition, and eventually, your freedom.

As a free gladiator, you traverse the open world, exploring, discovering secrets, and continuing your rise to power as you defeat powerful opponents throughout the Roman Empire. With success comes fame and money to recruit companions to aid you in battle, obtain new and deadly weapons to better slaughter your foes, purchase a home to serve as a base of operations and more.

Though a rise to power and distinction isn't easy, and danger is present in many more places than the arena. In addition to fending off wild animals and thieves during your travels, it is important to keep your character, as well as your companions, well-rested, well-fed, and alert in order to survive. 

The combat system is dynamic, bloody and fun, utilizing directional attacks, parry, dodge, and similar combat functions. Issuing orders and assigning formations to your companions can help you gain the upper-edge in battle.

Custom game modes are available for the gladiator who would like to hone his or her battle skills in a setting defined to their play style.
