Now that Destructive Creations have finished offering a first glimpse of the game to media and selected parties, Ancestors Legacy is now available to everyone to try for themselves. This will be a multiplayer offering that features all four playable nations. Three maps will be available, offering up a choice of 1v1, 2v2 or 3v3 players. Should any players choose to learn the system well before taking the fight online, they can with an A.I enemy setting.
Ancestors Legacy focuses on a rush of several gameplay factors at once -- base building, resource gathering and the final crunch in large scale squad based battles. Destructive Creations wanted to make sure the player could appreciate every aspect of a battle and to do this, they have incorporated the action camera, allowing one of the most up close and personal perspectives seen in an RTS. What’s more, it all looks great with the power of the Unreal Engine.
With a strong love of history, Destructive Creations say the following of the below trailer, “We wanted to picture something intimate, personal. Prayers were very popular in medieval times, especially for the nations presented in Ancestors Legacy. These were warriors who lived to conquer, so whether they were Christians or Pagans, they all needed deities to pray to when the battle was upon them. And that’s what we aimed for – not a prayer from an old prayer-book, but rather words that people use when they try to talk to their higher powers. When they get personal with whatever it is they believe in.”
Finally, if you like the look of Ancestor’s Legacy it also became available for pre-purchase today. Those who put money down ahead of the title’s full release will receive a full digital Collector’s Edition of Ancestors Legacy, containing the original soundtrack composed by Adam Skorupa and Krzysztof Wierzynkiewicz, and a digital artbook put together by the art team at Destructive Creations. Better still, grabbing Ancestors Legacy now will bag you a discount!
