Ubisoft has today announced that Spartacus Legends, a fighting game based on the popular Spartacus series which is produced and distributed by Starz Entertainment, will be coming to consoles in early 2013.
Featuring the popular characters from the international hit series and thousands of ruthless weapon combinations and a robust skill system, Spartacus Legends delivers a variety of tools for gamers to customize 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.
Lead actor Liam McIntyre has been very involved with the Spartacus Legends team. In addition to allowing his likeness and voice to be featured in the game, Liam, a big gamer himself, played early builds of the game and provided his creative feedback throughout the development process.
The Spartacus franchise (Gods of the Arena, Blood and Sand and Vengeance) airs in more than 150 countries and has been translated into 15 languages. In the United States, viewership for the show has grown with each season and is one of the highest rated cable series, with more than six million viewers watching each episode.
