Vivendi Games has announced the development of Sierra Entertainment's Caesar IV.
Caesar IV is a sequel to the million selling Caesar III and will build on its predecessor's winning formula. Caesar IV will feature new gameplay and cutting edge 3D graphics, thanks to an engine developed specifically for the game.
"Caesar III was a tremendous worldwide success, with this latest instalment, we feel fans across the globe will once again enjoy all this series has to offer," said Bret Berry, Vice President of Production at Vivendi Universal Games. "We are all committed to ensuring that in every aspect this sequel builds on all the qualities that make the Caesar series unique."
Developed by Tilted Mill, Caesar IV sees players take control of an aspiring governor within Caesar's empire. Players will build each city piece by piece, laying down roads and constructing buildings. You must also make sure the citizens are happy, and safe from barbarian threats. As you progress through the game you will become a more powerful politician with the ultimate goal to become the new Caesar.
Caesar IV is slated for a release some time in 2006.
