The year is AD 79. Seers have learned of the imminent eruption of Mount Vesuvius, and those versed in the mystic arts have made invocations to stop the calamity from claiming thousands of lives. However, these actions have angered Pluto, god of the underworld, who vows to usher in even greater destruction unless the earth’s strongest champions accomplish a series of tasks in a realm of grueling combat.
Hoplomachus: Victorum is a new stand-alone title from Chip Theory Games, coming to Kickstarter in 2021. It uses CTG’s acclaimed combat system from the Hoplomachus games, adding new twists with a focus on heroes and campaign play. Victorum is a solo-only experience, offering an in-depth, rewarding adventure with deep strategic decisions and exciting combat.
In addition to Victorum, we’ll be bringing a remastered edition of existing Hoplomachus content to the same 2021 campaign. This will streamline the best content from the original base games and expansions into a single box. Set in the more epic and mythical world of Hoplomachus: Victorum, this edition will pair the combat mechanics fans know and love with beautiful updated lore, art and design.
