On the other hand, in Praetorians – HD Remaster, players will lead the emerging Roman Empire by proving a legionnaire’s worth on the battlefields of Egypt, the combat theatres of Gaul, and the heart of the Roman Empire in Italy, in a crusade to become Emperor. Players will combine units, master their varied skill sets and exploit the weaknesses of the enemy to emerge victorious.

Here are also the key beta features for Praetorians HD Remaster:
