The Numantine War – one of the least known and most significant conflicts in history – can be experienced for the first time in NUMANTIA, a new turn-based strategy game heading to PS4, Xbox One, and Steam next Wednesday.
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.
Numantia was accepted by ICEX (España Exportación e Inversiones) as the entity’s first Spanish-made game to receive PR and marketing support in the United States from Novy Unlimited. To learn more about the program, please visit ICEX.
