- About the name of the modification, it will be the same as was before - Ancient Rome.

- The time period featured in the game will focus on the conquests of Gaius Julius caesar as stated in the previous releases.

- In the first release we will include various battles between the Late Roman Republic against Gallic tribes (in some battles various other barbarian tribes will take the place of Gauls ).

- However, in the second release we will include West Germanic tribes and in the third release we will include the Briton tribes (Northern England). In subsequent releases, we might be able to deliver: Kingdom of Pontus (Battle of Zela 48 BC), Numidia, Aegyptus (War of Alexandria).
In this update, we have two new screens to show you:

Late republican pugio (Titelberg) - Roman dagger
Late Republican pugio (Titelberg) - Roman dagger

The Pugio was used during the late republic. That sheaths were made of metal and the hilt of the dagger was be the same color as the blade and leather inside. It's characterized by the very small detail. The Dagger will be used by Caesar's legionary, centurion, and probably standard bearer. (Vexillarius, Aquilifer and Signifer).

The eight-man legionary tent

The eight-man legionary tent

It was a tent for eight roman legionaries (contuberninum). Also, the tent was dismantled after each summer march and rebuilt whenever the legions camped.

Thats it for this month guys, stay tuned for updates in the near future.
