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.
