Ubisoft has announced Spartacus Legends, a fighting game based on the Starz TV show. Yes, a fighting game from Ubisoft. It will feature thousands of weapons, a skill system, and a character creation system. You'll also be able to play as Spartacus, and other characters from the TV show.
Liam McIntyre, star of Spartacus, provided creative feedback during development on the project for whatever that's worth. Nothing like getting "creative feedback" from an actor! The game will be out sometime in 2013, and will be playable at San Diego Comic-Con this week too. No platforms were specified in the press release, but we'll update you as soon as we find out. I'm sure you're dying to know.
I only watched the first season of Spartacus because of Lucy Lawless. What? I loved Xena: Warrior Princess. DON'T JUDGE ME!
