"Heart of Empire: Rome" postponed

New York, USA (June 1st, 2006) - Paradox Interactive announced today that "Heart of Empire: Rome", one of their upcoming strategy titles to be published in North America, has been postponed until Q1 2007.

"Heart of Empire: Rome" is a strategy and simulation game set in ancient Rome. The title is developed by Deep Red (developers of "Tycoon City: New York") and the team has released various screenshots and trailers over the past couple of months, some of which can be found on the Paradox website:

This game takes you right to the heart of the empire. Preside over the building of The Eternal City of Rome and rule over one of the greatest empires of all time! Choose from over 100 different buildings. Your growing population, however, doesn't just need a place to live - it also needs food and entertainment. If you don't fulfil your people's needs, there'll be a riot! The goods coming in from the provinces must be carefully controlled, and your duties and your power grow in proportion to the amount of political influence you can gain in the senate. The ground-breakingly realistic 3D graphics give you the impression of being right in the middle of things, and you can use the completely controllable camera to zoom in on your citizens. Walk around the ancient streets you've created or follow the Romans as they go about their business in the city. You can even watch the traders touting their wares in the bustling markets! And don't forget to drop in on the chariot races - the one who dares, wins!
