Praetorians HD Remaster was released on January 24, 2020 by Kalypso Media. The game was developed by Pyro Studios and Torus Games. Praetorians is a real time strategy game.

Originally Praetorians was released on February 28, 2003. Now the game has been completely remastered for modern systems.

Praetorians is set amidst the political machinations of an emerging Roman Empire. Prove your worth on the battlefields of Egypt, the combat theaters of Gaul and finally the heart of the Empire itself in Italy, in a crusade to become Emperor. Your quest will not be an easy one, as the Empire is heavily defended by thousands of different troops and war machines, all with special skills and individual strengths.

Unlike most Real Time Strategy titles, Praetorians focuses on Military and tactics, rather than building, or resource management. Units are trained from a garrison, which is build on a town or village which requires a garrison to be built, and a commander to be sent there.

Each civilization comes with its own unique unit pool with units that have different strengths, abilities and weaknesses:

  • Light infantry
  • Heavy infantry
  • Archer units
  • Spear units
  • Cavalry units

Forests can be used to hide infantry units, and to spring ambushes against troops out in the open. Watery terrain which prevents heavy infantry units from crossing. Grassy terrain which can be lit on fire, and can kill troops that cross the fire. Praetorians features three game modes: Skirmish, Campaign, and Multiplayer.
