Game Description

Recreate the bone-crushing gladiator battles of ancient times in this turn-based action RPG from LucasArts. The Dark God was defeated and peace has reigned for decades between Nordagh and Imperia. Now battle is confined to gladiator arenas, where schools challenge each other for the title of Imperial Champions. Take on the role of Ursula or Valens, recruiting and controlling your own school of gladiators from 16 fighter classes with over 100 unique character types. Master over 400 weapons, compete in the glorious gladiator tournaments, and quest to stop the Dark God from returning once more. Play alone or with up to four players in co-op mode. Do you dare to enter the Arena?
