Epsom, UK – March 04, 2014.

If gladiators entertained audiences in ancient times by their violent confrontations with other fighters and wild animals, some of the most thrilling and fascinating moments of the Roman Ludi were probably the chariot races. Only the strongest and most skilled drivers were able to successfully take the reins of the quadrigas, the four-horses chariots designed to reach very high speeds.

In Qvadriga, the players will be able to relive the excitement and the passion of the Roman circuses. Alternating between driver and team manager roles, the players will try to dominate their opponents in the arena, and set up a team of champions to win the most prestigious contests of the Ancient World. The advanced AI will not hesitate to throw a spanner in the works by whipping your drivers to death and breaking your chariots.

This action-packed tactical game will also call upon your management skills to lead your team along the Grand campaign. 43 historically modeled circuses, seven Mediterranean regions to travel, 6 historic factions, and an extended customization system to upgrade your equipment and drivers ensures you experience an unforgettable sporting moment!

Easy to learn yet hard to master, Qvadriga has a catchy gameplay that appeals to players in a couple of minutes. A free demo is available to allow players to sample the atmosphere, quirks and thrills of the chariot race. This features two factions, a single race mode, two circuses and both static and dynamic gameplay; a sneak peek to appreciate the flavor of the game.

Get more information on Qvadriga from its official product page.
