Description

Caesar IV is the long-awaited sequel to Caesar III. In this historic city-building game, you govern a province of the Roman Empire, and are given the task of building its capital city. If you are successful, you move off to another province, with the final goal of becoming Caesar.

The main focus of the game is on planning and building your city, while keeping your citizens happy and safe. Rome expects you to turn a profit and send regular shipments of goods back. And in the meantime, you have to defend your city against plundering barbarians.

The online part of the game is divided in two sides: in Caesar's Challenge you compete against other players to become the best governor of the season; in the Empire mode, you can build up and expand your own province by completing and uploading scenarios.
