The Byzantine spirit is reflected in the beauty of the architecture, which combines Western and Eastern elements. The buildings are crowned by rounded domed roofs.

Roman units are made up of spearmen capable of creating strategic formations that are difficult to breach.

If you're a fine strategist who likes to anticipate everything, opt for the Roman civilisation.

So if you want to feel at ease in the game and understand the mechanics, it's best to choose your civilisation according to the way you play.
