Spartacus FeatureBanner 15 Jul

Ubisoft has confirmed to MCV that it is set to publish a game based on the “Spartacus” TV-series for Xbox Live Arcade and Playstation Network some time early next year. Little is known about the game at this time, but players will be able to take control of the eponymous hero, Crixus, or a character of their own creation.

The game, which is known asĀ Spartacus Legends, will take place entirely within set arenas, and feature the likeness and voice-talent of Spartacus-actor Liam McIntyre. On- and offline multiplayer modes have been confirmed for the game.

Ubisoft has not confirmed whether the game is being developed by an in-house studio, or whether it is merely publishing the game for a third-party.
