The history of Praetorians
Cimmeria
Few people know that the development of Praetorians already started in 1997 under the name "Cimmeria." The game had undergone many name changes before it got Praetorians as its definite name.

Cimmeria lends its name from the Cimmerians, a nomadic tribe which inhabited the region north if the Caucasus and the Black Sea. The first historical record of this tribe dates back from 714 BC. They were a strong and powerful tribe which conquered many regions, with their biggest achievement capturing the city Lydia. This was around 640 BC. However, the occupation of Lydia didn't last for long, because between 637 BC and 626 BC they were beaten by Alyattes II of Lydia, which marked the effective end of Cimmerian power.

The game was slated for a 2000 release, but eventually the games was completely redesigned, and finished by another development team at Pyro Studios in early 2003.

Below you can find a rare collection of media we have collected for you, including a trailer of the game which was previously shown to the press only!

Enjoy!
