Imperator: Rome is a grand strategy wargame developed and published by Paradox Interactive, which was released on 25 April 2019. It is a successor to Europa Universalis: Rome, released by Paradox in 2008. It received generally positive reviews from critics.
The timeline of the game starts at 450 AUC (304 BCE) and includes the period of the establishment of the Roman Empire and the Wars of the Diadochi. The map spans from the Iberian peninsula to India, and features over 7,000 cities. Similarly with previous games from Paradox, all of the nations in the game are playable. The game advertises a variety of features, including character management, diverse population, new battle tactics, military traditions, different governmental types, barbarians and rebellions, trade, and provincial improvement. The game is a successor to Europa Universalis: Rome, released by Paradox in 2008.
The game was developed by Paradox Development Studio and directed by Johan Andersson. The game was announced on 19 May 2018. The game was released on 25 April 2019 for Microsoft Windows, macOS, and Linux. Imperator: Rome focuses primarily on nations and empires, with a small focus on character management like Crusader Kings II, Andersson hoped that Paradox could make a modern sequel to Europa Universalis: Rome. As with recent Paradox Development Studio games, Imperator: Rome was built using the Clausewitz Engine, but with the addition of new software known as "Jomini" (named after 19th century general Antoine-Henri Jomini) that allows for easier and faster creation of mods.
The game received "generally favorable reviews", according to review aggregator Metacritic. IGN praised the game for its depth, "the amount of detailed, strategic stuff crammed into Imperator: Rome is equal parts impressive and daunting," while criticizing the game's user interface and tribal nations. The review also praised the game's political system, writing that the political warfare between people within nations is "a great driver of character interaction". PC Gamer described the game as "uniting systems from the most recent games" while still being "more cohesive than a 'greatest hits' compilation". Despite lower user ratings than they expected, the game's sales surpassed Paradox's expectations.
