Grand Ages: Rome (previously known as Imperium Romanum 2) is a city-building and real-time strategy developed by Haemimont Games and published by Kalypso Media. It was released in Europe on March 6, 2009 and in North America on March 17, 2009. It is the sequel to the Imperium Romanum.
The single player campaign takes place during the final years of the Roman Republic during the time of the First Triumvirate. The player undertakes missions for his/her family, establishing a reputation as a statesman and leader; as well as working under historical figures like Marcus Tullius Cicero, Mark Antony, Pompey Magnus and Marcus Crassus. Certain historical events are portrayed, such as slave uprising led by Spartacus and the crossing of the Rubicon. At one point the player must choose between siding with Julius Caesar or Pompey Magnus, with missions playing out to wiping out the Optimates or building armies against the Populares.
