Julius Caesar was first revealed in Weekly Blog #23: Caesar, Pompey, Crassus forum post on November 30th, 2019. He will act as an advisor, a community Role in the Legion of Caesar and finally as part of a new Unique Game Mode.

Around 60 BCE, Caesar, Pompey, and Crassus enjoyed enormous military power and each led separate armies under the Roman flag. As their individual power rose, they each threatened the stability of the Republic.
Julius Caesar was born into an influential Roman family, was son of a provincial governor, and nephew of one of the greatest Romans of his generation, Gaius Marius. Through these connections, Caesar became ruler of Hispania (modern day Spain), where he enjoyed great military success before becoming Pontifex Maximus, which was the head of the Roman religion. From there, he returned to the military and would become one of Rome's greatest commanders, most notably for his conquest of Gaul (modern day France, Switzerland, and Belgium). However, in doing so he faced accusations of raising a private army without the authority of Rome itself.
