|This article is about the unit in Age of Empires II HD: The Forgotten. For the unit in Age of Empires, see Centurion (Age of Empires).|
In the Definitive Edition, Centurions have a unique and less anachronistic appearance based on Late Roman Cataphracts (but different from the game's Cataphract trained by the Byzantines), with golden horse armor, cape, ridge helmet, and a round shield with the Chi Rho symbol. The Definitive Edition version of Belisarius also has this appearance.
Campaign appearances Edit
Two notable appearances of Centurions are in All Roads Lead to a Besieged City and The Rebellion of Melus. In the first scenario of Alaric, Centurions are under the control of Rome, whereas in the second scenario of Bari, Centurions and Legionaries, along with Varangian Guards (renamed Halberdiers) guard the city of Bari.
- Centurion was a rank in the Roman army, the commander of a Centuria (literally and originally 100 men, although the standard size was 80 men for most of the time in the Roman Empire).
- The Centurion is inaccurately portrayed as a heavy cavalry wearing a Chalcidian Helmet despite being a Roman infantry officer wearing a Galea; it would be more accurate to call the Centurion an Eques, Legatus, or Clibannarus.
