Wow, that looks amazing. They sure didn't spare any efforts there.

This is basically a "create your own custom mod" DLC.

And you can even set up your own religion from the start if you desire so. Neat.

Agreed, this looks like a lot of fun. I hope they make something similar for EU 4.

Technically they already have the randomized New World thingy, but IIRC it was never very popular or extensive as this.

So according to Stellaris' page on Facebook, the planet Jackson in the Deneb system is named after the Coffee Express Serviceman who saved them when they were in a bind. "(Totally made that up just now but it's now canon!)"

Oh, I see what it is now. It was the EU 4 Dharma DLC, and I could buy it but it hasn't been released yet. That will be next Thursday.

My money is ready, Paradox.

It's too bad that we can't do "shattered world with fully dynamic religions," everyone starting as a straight pagan tribal and, at a certain (size? Tech? Stats?) being able to create a new religion by reformation.

What I would like in particular in EU 4 is the ability to uncolonize provinces manually, instead of just the blanket option.

Meanwhile, I'm over here still waiting on the new Rome game quite patiently. Can't wait to Alternate History the earth and conquer the world as Sparta.

Yeah I'm very interested in that too, but I intend to make the glorious empire of Macedon or Boi.

I'd be sorely disappointed if they didn't add any special achievement for BOI.

Or "Boi of Dad" for doing the reverse.

Feh, Celtic conquest of Rome is where it's at.

Or maybe spreading the good word of Ahura Mazda by book and by sword.

I just hope Syracuse is a viable option.

So, given the game is taking place at the time of the Rise of the Roman Empire, coinciding with the fall of Greece and the splitting of Alexander's Empire, it seems unlikely that there will be a reenactment of the Battle of Thermopylae.

Kinda wish you could go further back and start in the Golden Age of Babylon, or the Persian-Median Empire, just to get a head start on them pesky Romans and Greeks. Maybe even allow story events so that the Rise of Rome is assured (barring you stepping in and conquering the whole region).

I just hope the game is a good one. Paradox are good at putting quality work in their games, but I hope it is released a lot better than Total War: Rome II was (even if that game is vastly improved now).

I already remember that EU 4 has a mod that takes place in the Classical era, so I imagine this might be a lot like that.

So since Imperator Rome is set to start in 450 AUC (304 BCE), methinks the game will start at the end of the Total War: Rome II prologue, where you put down the second Samnite Revolt, which is an event that historically took place in 304 BCE. Or maybe the game will feature that as Rome's starting position, with the Samnites revolting immediately after starting or some such.

And then Rome curb-stomps them and goes "You know what would be cool? If we took over the world!"

So can you actually do that? Can you colonize and conquer the entire world as the Romans?

It is supposed to be closer to EU 4 than to CK 2, so I imagine it will be a lot like TW:R2, where there are a ton of one-city provinces for you to assimilate, but little colonization involved.

But yes, the game is supposed to be centered around the rise of Rome, which means Rome is likely gonna start relatively small and grow to be gimongous.

Well, technically, the ancients colonised plenty, too, so it is not all that farfetched to have the Roman Empire establish colonies.

Yeah, for instance Messalia is a Greek colony, as were a lot of various settlements around the Mediterranean.
