April 4, 2007 - Koch Media announced today that it had struck a deal with Black Bean Games to develop another historical battle simulation in the form of The History Channel: Great Battles of Rome.
Players will step in the boots of a Roman legionnaire and lead a series of campaigns against Barbarian hordes and rival states. Players will be able to fully experience the building of one of history's greatest Empires.
"This game has given us the opportunity to bring a great television brand to life in the interactive entertainment arena. The blending of dramatic video footage from The History Channel with fast paced gameplay delivers a unique and authentic experience that will have mass appeal," added Chris Mehers of Black Bean Games.
The History Channel: Great Battles of Rome will be available on PlayStation 2, PSP, and PC in May 2007 in the UK, with a North American release following on June 12.
