The Roman Campaign is the main group of quests exclusive for the Roman civilization in Age of Empires Online, developed by Project Celeste. The campaign is asynchronistic as it deals with the early years of the Roman Republic, while at the same time the quest givers are from the end of that era (~400-300 years later).
Capital City Quests
These quests are linked to the Roman Capital City. Julius Caesar is the principal quest giver and in this part of the campaign are included all the tutorial and training quests. The main campaign follows the establishment of the Roman Republic after the overthrow and exile of Tarquinius until the Roman–Volscian wars.
Pompey acts as the main quest giver and in the city of Capua, north of the Capital City. The global repeatable quests are included in this part of the campaign. It continues the conflict with the Volsci and end until the Second Latin War.
Army Camp Quests
This is the last part of the Roman campaign, it resumes the conflict with the Etruscans until the Battle of Veii and Mark Antony acts as the quest giver during this last part of the Roman Campaign which also includes the launch of Argos Campaign with its own version vs. the Sea People
The Roman Campaign was announced through the Weekly Blog #31: The Future of the Romans forum post on March 21st, 2020.
- In light of recent events, we have decided to make the Romans even greater and are very excited to announce that the Romans will no longer be a pro civ. This means that they will start at level 1 and will give players the full Age of Empires Online experience.
- They will have their own unique Regions, Quest Givers, main Questline, Side Quests, and more! We haven't missed the smaller details either, such as giving them their own equivalent of Delphi/Giza Limestone or Celtic Charcoal: The Roman Marble
