is a new cross-platform online strategy game for PC, Mac and tablets from the makers of Total War.
TWB: KINGDOM is the follow-up to the award-winning Total War Battles: SHOGUN, which was released in 2012, being developed by the Creative Assembly´s Digital Team. TWB: KINGDOM is a massively-connected world where you can interact with and battle against thousands of other players.
The game is set during the tumultuous turn of the 10th century. Europe starts to emerge from the Dark Ages divided and at war.
Stepping from the ruins, players must restore their lands, recruit their army and contest the throne. Combining realm building with large scale battles, players will find themselves managing the needs of their own fiefdom as they marshal increasingly impressive armies. Ultimately, players will be able to join in massed wars against other lords in a fight for the throne.
TWB: KINGDOM follows a more classical Total War structure of having two gameplay modes tied together, Realm-building and Battle. It appears to be similar to the city-building genre made popular for mobile and browser by games like Tribal Wars, Clash of Clans, and Travian, but with more economic and political options, as well as a tactical battle system.KINGDOM introduce new features, gameplay and a distinct visual style.
Realm-building mode: Rather than building a base at the start of each map, your realm is persistent over time, allowing for a deeper and much more engaging economic simulation that runs in real time on the game server.
Battle mode: Battles are much larger in scale with hundreds of men clashing on the battlefield. Greater emphasis is also placed on the correct timing of charges, special abilities and the strategic engagement of different unit types.
Build your Realm – Progressively create your own world. Explore, conquer then shape your lands to transform the wilderness into a powerful and productive Realm. Raise new cities, cut down forests, lay roads or change the course of rivers.
Large scale battles – Create and train your own army then lead large scale battles where the cunning of your moves and the accuracy of your orders will do more than the sheer number of your troops.
The Cross Platform Total War – Play on multiple devices, whenever you want, wherever you want. No matter which platform you choose.
TWB: KINGDOM draws from the heritage of the Total War series, but is designed from the ground-up with mobility, cross-platform functionality and dip-in/dip-out gameplay in mind.By making the game more accessible and bringing KINGDOM to multiple platforms, you can play in a persistent historical world anywhere – at your desk, while in front of the TV or on the go.
The Total War Battles: KINGDOM Closed Beta will only currently be available on a Windows based PC.
