If you’re looking for a strategy game based on history then you should definitely check out Numantia. It is set for an October 25, 2017 release on Steam, PS4, and the Xbox One.

The upcoming game has been developed by RECOtechnology. The company was founded in 2012 by Francisco Encinas. Feel free to visit their official website.

Here’s the official synopsis for Numantia:

After a series of humiliating defeats over a 20-year war, Rome has decided to send in their best general – Scipio Aemilianus – to put an end to Numantia’s rebellion. With rigorous training and unmatched strategy, Scipio and his elite army gear up for the final battle, which became known as the legendary Siege of Numantia.

Numantians must now face their most fearsome enemy yet, and it’s up to you – playing as the brave Celtiberian tribe of Numantia or the mighty Republican army of Rome – to experience historical events from a whole new perspective.

Experience more than 20 years of conflict in a narrative-driven single-player campaign set in the Iberian Peninsula during the Roman Republic era – or challenge a friend in an offline one-on-one battle. Engage in intense tactical combat as you lead an army of 30 units (including long-range slingers and powerful war heroes) to crush your opponent and secure victory.

Numantia features a robust choice-based event system. The decisions you make can benefit or (if you’re not careful) inadvertently hurt your own army. Will you go on the offensive and engage in endless skirmishes … or will you wait for the right time to strike at the heart of the enemy? Take command, plot a winning strategy, and immerse yourself in historical events that shaped the course of European history in Numantia.

Check out the exciting trailer!

The key features include:

  • Experiencing a narrative-driven campaign set between 153 B.C. and 133 B.C.
  • Choosing between the fearless Celtiberian tribe of Numantia or the mighty Republican army of Rome.
  • Leading a massive army of 30 units – such as spearmen, slingers, cavalry, and even siege machines – in epic battles.
  • Taking on the campaign solo or fight a friend in a one-on-one battle.
  • Managing a full-fledged army and witness historical events unfold.

Releasing on October 25, 2017, you can own Numantia on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One for $29.99, and on Steam for $19.99.
