Ubisoft have announced Spartacus Legends, a fighting game based on the hit (made in NZ) TV show.
Featuring thousands of ruthless weapon combinations and a robust skill system, Spartacus Legends delivers a variety of tools for gamers to customise their gladiators and dismember their foes. Gamers will be able to fight as Spartacus, Crixus or one of their own created gladiators as they battle with friends offline or in online multiplayer to join the ranks on the worldwide leaderboards.
Liam McIntyre, the actor who plays the titular Spartacus, has apparently been involved with Spartacus Legends' development. In addition to allowing his likeness and voice to be featured, Liam, a big gamer himself, played early builds of the game and provided his creative feedback throughout the process.
Spartacus Legends is headed to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 as a download-only game in Summer 2013.
