Spartacus Legends Free-to-Play on XBLA and PSN

In early 2013, Ubisoft and Kung Fu Factory will see the release of their newest title, “Spartacus Legends,” on the Xbox Live Arcade (XBLA) and Playstation Network (PSN). Best of all: it’s FREE!

In order to make the game free to play, the game will feature micro-transactions. “Spartacus Legends” will feature an offline as well as an online verus mode, where players can fight as either Spartacus, Crixus or their own created character.

In a press release Ubisoft announced the Fame system to keep the cheater at bay:
The game ensures that competitive play stays fair through a fame system; the higher-tier the equipment that is available for purchase, the more fame that is necessary to use that equipment.
The final season of the Starz series, “Spartacus: War of the Damned,” is set to air in January, so expect to game to release around that time.
