Gods & Heroes - Preview @ The Armchair Empire
When not seeing the sites throughout the Empire, players will have plenty of time for combat. This will take place in a more action-oriented fashion on par with what one could expect to find in the Diablo series, and considering that the mastermind behind Rome Rising is Stieg Hedlund, who was also head honcho on Diablo II, this probably shouldn’t come as much of a surprise. The process, however, is meant to be a lot more strategic with players having to aim and time their attacks while fighting, and not simply flailing away.
This won’t be some sort of button masher. Not only will players be able to whack away at enemies (or other players), but there’ll be some fancy schmancy finishing moves to help zazz things up a bit. Also, players will be able to earn NPCs to help bash bad guys, which may come in handy for those who prefer soloing their online games.
