While at E3 this year, I had the opportunity to stop by the Mythic booth and see a demo of Imperator, their new MMORPG due out in the fall of 2006. Imperator is an Alternate Earth game, in which the Roman Republic continued to be the dominant culture on Earth. Roman culture may have dominated but other empires also flourished, including the Mayan Empire, Rome's biggest rival. That is, until the Mayans took off en masse in their spaceships, an act the Romans consider "The Great Betrayal". A century or so after the Mayans left, they return to Earth to settle the score, and that's where the game starts.
