Game publisher 1C Company, in conjunction with developer Destructive Games, have announced the PC release, via Steam, of it’s RTS strategy game, Ancestors Legacy. Ancestors Legacy is a squad-based real-time strategy game inspired by medieval European history where players can join Vikings, Saxons and other nations in an extensive series of tactical campaigns or challenge their friends in multiplayer battles. The game was released in both a standard and Collector’s Edition and is launching with a 10% launch discount on Steam until May 29th. Ancestors Legacy will also ship on Xbox One and Xbox One X in early 2019.
Tomasz Gop, Producer at Destructive Creations describes the game’s pace as:
Ancestors Legacy is all about having the action-oriented game set within the medieval environment, as close to reality as possible. All four nations are based on history, but also we managed to make them actually feel unique. The final product gives to players a competitive multiplayer side of the game, joined with what I call Role-Playing Strategy (RPS), story-driven single-player campaigns that can be played at a more relaxed pace.
The game gives players command of their armies as they storm through medieval Europe in a series of tactical campaigns inspired by actual historical events. Players can choose one of four available nations; Viking, Anglo-Saxon, German or Slav, with which they can conquer, raid and pillage enemy camps and towns. To take full tactical advantage, players must also use the environment to their benefit and properly manage their temporary bases and settlements.
The game combines resource management and base building with large-scale, squad-based battles across vast battlefields, all rendered in Unreal Engine 4 technology. Players will experience medieval bloodshed via the cinematic action camera that puts them right in the middle of the battle at the press of a button.
Watch for our forthcoming review! While you wait, or to convince yourself further to take advantage of the 10% discount, you can feast your eyes on the launch day trailer:
