"Civilization 6" recently teased their fans with the release of Rome with Trajan as their leader. In history, he is an emperor from 98 to 117 AD who was successful in leading the greatest military expansion. It was so successful that he was declared as optimus princeps which means "the best ruler."

In "Civilization 6" Rome, the focus is on spreading and conquering other cities across the map. This is made possible by Legion which can build roads and forts. Is this unique feature of Rome better than Swordsman? iDigital Times reported that Legion is stronger and more expensive. It may not necessarily signify a meaner military expansion as it only has limited power.

Legion in "Civilization 6" Rome, though unique and strong, has limited power. Gamers can only build up to specific number. The Baths, which replaced Aqueduct, is a unique building which can provide more amenities and housing for its residents.

Other cities in "Civilization 6" usually start with a monument. But in Rome, it has one free building right in the heart of the city. One of its strength is its ability to quickly start a city with the help of Legion and the advantages of Baths. Once gamers sent their military across the map for expansion, they can establish and retain their grounds with the help of Forts.

The military expansion of Trajan in the 13th century was seen unmatched by any other emperor. In "Civilization 6," Rome defeated Dacia twice, Parthia, Armenia and Ctesiphon under the leadership of Trajan. His military skills in invading other cities were better and meaner, but he has a soft heart as well making him loved by his own people. He ensured that orphans and children in the poor communities are well taken care of.

Stay tuned to GameNGuide for the latest news and updates on "Civilization 6" which will be released on Oct 21.
