Gods and Heroes: Rome Rising: Headed to Steam With In-Game Minion

SBFordSBFord Associate Editor - News ManagerThe Land of AZPosts: 16,613MMORPG.COM Staff Uncommon

Heatwave Interactive has announced that Gods& Heroes: Rome Rising is headed to Steam and will be available beginning June 24th. As a bonus for purchasing on Steam, players will receive access to the Level 3 minion Gorpal, a damage-dealer Phorcid that protects players by fighting with claws and poisonous bite. 

Launching in North America and Europe this week, Gods & Heroes: Rome Rising is a full-scale MMORPG that immerses players in a universe of authentic Roman myth and legend. Players take on the role of a Demigod and celebrated hero of the Roman army who sets out on a quest for vengeance against an ancient enemy. While battling in the midst of Roman landmarks and legendary scenery, players can build and command their own squad of minions, customize their massive estate, combat mythological creatures, and unleash an arsenal of weapons.

    Oh, wait...  This isn't going to be a free to play game?  Well.  It's doomed to fail.

  • mad-hattermad-hatter Posts: 236Member Uncommon

    It's doomed to fail even if it was free, the beta was horrible, was expecting A LOT more out of this.  Graphics are ok, but the gameplay is just blah.

    Was about to ask if this is any good...  I didn't bother trying to get into beta and from the sounds/looks of things its just another waste of time =(

    This game has lots of potential and does offer something different than a WoW/EQ clone.  But with that said, I feel they rushed the game out and still needs at least another 4-6 months of polishing.  I love the intentions they have for this game but with this being the 2nd release for this title, they should have released the game at 100% to give it a fair shot in the market.  I'm afraid people will try the game, witness it's many bugs and drop their sub.  APB can kind of survive this because of it's payment method, but this game can't.

    Funny thing is, there was a secret Phorcid in the game before Perpetual lost it. Seems they just pulled the minion out of game when Heatwave took over and decided to give it to Steam players only.

    Well, if it were F2P, or even had a lesser-priced box price with no monthly sub like GW, I'd probably purchase it as a casual game.

     

    But this title isnt nearly robust enough in game-play, at all, to warrent a $40 box and $10/month.  But that's me.  Having played teh open beta and experienced the lack of mmorpg content and game-play deliverables, or the lack of what you can achieve or accomplish through game-play, it seems like more of a single-player emphasized game with a lobby-system home estate system.

    i find it amazing all these people who say doomed to fail,makes me laugh.we have 100 chars in our tribe alone,and they are not alts of other chars either.lets wait and see if it fails or not.you peeps make me giggle.one other thing is it has,nt even been released in europe yet.all you fail guys,must be awful playing a game with you lot,with all your doom and gloom outlook.

    i bet alot players that like the game rage quit after hearing the news that it switch to p2p from f2p. it look to me that the new dev fail expectation of having store to maintain the game so they probably switch it back to p2p. $50 to buy the game isn't worth it, the game was already price for $30 before now they're ripping you off with the $50.

     

    lol @ the prices gamestop sell it for $50, $40 at steam

  • WoopinWoopin LeedsPosts: 1,038Member Uncommon

    Edit nvm it is p2p :)

    Played a lot in Beta. Didn't float my boat but I stuck with it and tested to the best of my ability. Did not think it was good enough to be p2p. That's just my opinion. In game I met a lot of people who really enjoyed it. I wish you all well and super funtimes.:)

    Isn't 30 pounds about 50 dollars?

    In any case Amazon has it for 49.99 and so does microcenter. So does Game Stop.

    While the game isn't perfect it's still a fun game.  I don't think $9.99 a month is that bad at all, I've played a lot worse and had to pay $14.99 a month.

    A game comes out thats a bit different and people refuse to give it a chance, cause it's not WoW enough.  But if a game comes out and is called a "WoW clone" people scream and shout that they want something different.

    What! Buy to win is a joke and thats what APB is gonna be, and already is, I was in the first beta and release bought the game, I was in this beta and again the open beta, this game is a joke , I dunno why people want free to play when the game is not Free!!! you end up spending more then 15 bucks , look at APB, to get a decent weapons you have to rent most of them!! Ya rent, and you will spend more than 15 bucks a months so where is the logic with free to play, sure you can play the game , but thats if you wanna suck at it and have crappy items.. Thats like playing WOW with all greens or less in arena and expect to win....

    Forgot to add I agree I did beta test this game , and it was decent 10 bucks a month is worth it. I rather have that than free to p-lay and spent 20 -30 a month to rent items like most free to play. AKA buy to win, they should be called not free as there not FREE.......!!!  agree with this poster 1000%

  • BeermanglerBeermangler Cluj NapocaPosts: 397Member Uncommon

    Hm, I can't locate the 'Purchase' button on Steam for this item... I can only add it to Wishlist.

    Anyone else in EU having this problem?

    Well you can get the digital download for $40.  Plus if it does ever go to F2P then so be it.  A lot of mmo's even bigger named ones are going F2P.
