Story: Although Emperor Antares was slain, rumours spread in the land of a dark cult who sought to return their master to life.
Legend foretold that Antares once drank from an enchanted grail to fuel his life unnaturally. Upon his death, the grail was shattered into five pieces and hidden in dungeons far, far beneath the earth - but if the grail could ever be rebuilt, it might grant it’s owner immortal life.
For the first time, your gladiator steps beyond the arena and into a greater world. Grab your torch, stock up on provisions and descend into darkness. From humble origins and obscurity, you will rise to become a great force for good or weapon of evil. Throughout an epic quest, you will descend into the darkest dungeons, battle frost dragons and undead sorcerer kings. Fiendish traps, labyrinthine mazes and vast new colosseums await. You will amass princely riches and wield weapons blessed by the gods themselves. And you will need them – for the world of Brandor in Swords and Sandals 4 is filled with terrors ancient and deadly.
