Viva Media revealed a bunch of details about how multiplayer will work with Grand Ages: Rome.
Sounds like there may be some modding involved with this game as well, which would be very nice. I love making and playing homebrew maps in 4x RTS games.
Last Man Standing – The objective of this game mode is to defeat all other
teams. A player is considered defeated when all outposts controlled by them are
40,000 Denarii – The first team to accumulate a total of 40 000 Denarii wins.
All Monuments – The first team to construct the Colosseum, Circus Maximus, Pantheon, Philosopher Academy, Courthouse and Victory Column wins.
Defeat Last Barbarians – The team that destroys the last barbarian village on the map wins.
King of the Hill – The teams battle for control of a special point on the map. The team that manages to hold control of the point for 10 minutes wins the game.
All in One – This game mode combines all other multiplayer modes. Any team that destroys all enemy outposts, is the first to accumulate 100 000 Denarii, or constructs all monuments, will win. ‘Destroy all barbarians’ and ‘King of the Hill’ victory modes are also applied on the maps where these game modes are available.
