Spartacus Legends places players in the role of Lanista and owner of a stable of elite fighting gladiators. The brutal one-on-one combat title challenges you to raise your fighters up from the ranks of the nameless fodder to glory… or get stabbed and forgotten about. Either way.
The Spartacus Gear of Legends contest (running now on the game’s Facebook page), challenges would-be armor and weapon smith’s to create a new piece of gear that will be featured in the final release of the game. There’s a category for each (so I guess you technically have two chances to win) and the winner will be chose by the television show’s star Liam McIntyre and creator Steven DeKnight, among others.
Those designs, whatever they might be, will then be actually incorporated into the final game when it sees release on consoles.
