After the assassination of Julius Caesar in 44 BC, the Roman Republic found itself in mortal danger. The infighting that followed eventually saw the end of the Republic and the birth of the Principate, with Octavianus Augustus sole ruler of the newly-established Roman Empire.

Victory after victory, the Empire slowly expanded, reaching its maximum extent in 117 AD. But dominance couldn't be held forever. Internal and external threats undermined stability in the centuries that followed. To ease administration, the empire was eventually divided into western and eastern halves, each with its own emperor. Under the constant pressure of large Germanic confederations, the western half eventually collapsed, and in 476 AD the last western emperor was deposed.

In Legions Triumphant, the new exciting DLC for Field of Glory II, you can be part of the final conquests of the Roman Empire in Britain, Germany and Dacia, witnessing the Pax Romana when the legions on the frontier mostly kept at bay the barbarians to the north and first the Parthians, then the Sassanid Persians, in the east.

Relive the final disintegration of Western Roman power under pressure from the Germans and Goths (themselves attempting to outdistance the rising power of the Huns), and the desperate attempts of 5th century leaders to hold at bay the barbarian tide, using armies at least partly consisting of barbarian troops.

Legions Triumphant follows the development of the Roman Imperial Army through its heyday, its late 3rd century AD reorganisation to deal with new threats, and subsequent decline. It also follows the rise of its various enemies, the Germans and Goths, the Sassanid Persians and the dreaded Huns. Play as the Romans or as one of their many enemies.

Field of Glory II: Legions Triumphant brings you 10 new factions (Alans, Anglo-Saxons, Caledonians, Goths, Hephthalites, Huns, Palmyrans, Picts, Romano-British and Sassanid Persians); 17 new units (including Legio Comitatensis, Auxilia Palatina, Pictish Spearmen and the Fierce Hunnic Nomad Horse Archers), and 22 new Army Lists!

In addition, this expansion adds numerous improvements and changes to the campaign system, with 4 new historically-based campaigns, the ability to name your units, to fight on after a lost battle and many more!

Stay tuned for further updates!

Not really, there will be differences.

Still, just for fun, could someone provide a quick list/overview of the original modules in order as a favour for a newbie?

You should still be able to see them on the store or products links.

Is a great add to the serie, maybe i see more urgent now add like in old FOG a system to diference between the diferent armies by DLC and between stock and custom content... we cant have the "book presentation" but add more filters could be great.

I expect now we can see how FOG II "getting medieval on our ass" :mrgreen:

Exciting news!
Question: any plans to add the additional nation-specific figures from the TT mod to this or future releases?
Ta,

A new module every 3 or so months is nice.
My wallet is ready and waiting.

Release date is mid October as advertised on the site...that's a long haul by any standard. Years before all the modules are released...sigh.

Where does it say that? I suspect that might be a little mistake.

I was going to say, it says "Coming Soon" on the product page linked from the OP. Where does it say "October"? (If it does, we need to correct it, because it will be much sooner than October).

From your main page I clicked on the banner for Legions Triumphant announced which brought me to a descriptions page. On the left hand side of the screen under the specs I believe was where it said October 12th. Hope this helps.

...seems to have been changed now from when I viewed it the day it was announced...sorry for the cause of a few grey hairs.

Looks great! There is a minor mistake with the name of one of the Late Roman units, it says Limitanii but it is in fact Limitanei

Many thanks IƱaki. Don't know how I could have missed that.
