A new MMO is a' brewing and it appears SOE will have its well experienced hands in the kool aid. Perpetual Entertainment annoucned yesterday that it will be teaming up with SOE's own Platform Publishing to create Gods and Hero's: Rome Rising.
An bit of news I found interesting is Stieg Hedlund one of the lead designers from Diablo II is hard at work on this title so I'm hoping for great things from it. I don't see on the official website where I can wear a toga but here is an exerpt of SOE's press release:
Gods & Heroes: Rome Rising brings the bold and dramatic world of ancient Rome online. As Rome grows into its role as a Republic, enemies from Carthage, Gaul and other nations seek their share of the treasures of this new empire. Furthermore, monstrous creatures of myth, such as Gorgons, Minotaurs and Furies roam the land and threaten the safety of Rome. As heroes of the republic, players will embark on epic quests to defend the empire, protect its interests and people, and serve one of the ancient Gods of Roman myth. This alliance with the gods will provide the player with incredible god powers that can be wielded in battle against monsters as well as against other players in Player vs. Player (PvP) combat.
Check out the official website here for all the media they've just released.
