Spartacus Legends Goes Free-To-Play

Hope you like the free-to-play model because that's essentially the future, or so it seems.

Ubisoft has revealed that Spartacus Legends, the title based on the hit TV series, will release as a free-to-play title on both the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade in 2013.

Obviously, the whole trick of "free-to-play" is that it isn't necessarily free if you wish to wish to enjoy the full experience. In Spartacus Legends, you will be able to purchase equipment that will help you in the Coliseum. But in order to obtain the higher-level equipment, you'll have to up your "fame," so new players willing to spend a little cash won't automatically have the edge in combat. Remember, this is the game that has you living the life of a gladiator, and that includes everything from practicing at the training grounds to deadly battles in the arena.

If you're a fan of that time period and setting, you should probably give it a try. And hey, it's free to start playing, at any rate.

It can only be the future if it works, right? Well, I personally hope that it won't so I won't be supporting this kind of practice... not that I'm gonna make a difference or anything lol.

Love the Spartacus show, it's not the same without Andy Whitfield & co but it's still great. I might try out the free version for a little fun but the odds that I would microstransact are about the same as the odds that I personally could defeat the Shadow of Death.

I'm assuming this is made by the folks who made The Deadliest Warrior games. Pipework Games? Anyway, those games left a lot to be desired even though I admired their efforts to try something more original.

I saw the potential in those games. Did you ever play bushido blade? I would really love someone to make a new version of that. I had some hilarious sleep over parties when I was in public school and that game was the center piece of it. Coming back to win a fight after your arm and legs were gimped was just awesome.

I felt deadliest world tried to do this but fell a little short.

Yah, I had Bushido Blade many years back. It was one of the first 3D fighters, like fully drectional. It was ambitious for its time but I think it needed more meat to its play. Didn't both it's sequel and Tobal 2 never make it state or providence side?
Anyhow, yah, the Deadliest Warrior had many cool concepts but the execution on everything was pretty much sucky.
