Gods and Heroes: Rome Rising

Gods & Heroes is an upcoming MMORPG set in a mythical version of Ancient Rome, which mixes real historical elements with beasts of legend and Olympian gods. The game will put you in the shoes of a powerful demigod hero, and let you choose one of the four classes (Gladiator, Mystic, Soldier, and Priest) as well as a deity you’re aligned with.

Two of the most interesting features of G&H are Estates and Minions. The first one is a personal instance system. Several MMORPGs have offered player housing before, but Gods and Heroes goes one step further by giving each player control of an entire valley. Estates are account-wide, so your alts will have access to all the buildings and NPCs you’ve acquired.

The Minion system will allow the player to control a squad of up to 4 AI hirelings. There will be more than 130 minions of various types to choose from, such as warriors, archers, mages, and mythological beings (including exclusive ones depending on which god you follow). Regretfully, PvP won’t be in the game at launch, so you will be limited to battling monsters.
