Politics and Culture Changes Highlight New Update to Imperator: Rome

1.5 update launches alongside new content pack

STOCKHOLM - 11 August 2020 - Paradox Development Studios has issued an update to Imperator: Rome, its grand strategy game about the classical world after the death of Alexander. This update is available now.

Among other things, the new “Menander” update adds greater depth to cultural management in the game, cognizant of the fact that empires would often make concessions to conquered peoples in order to more easily accommodate them to new rulers. Build an empire of many cultures, creating unity out of difference.
