IronClad Games, the makers of the 4x strategy game series Sins of a Solar Empire, and Future Games Publishing, a new publishing studio formed to output free-to-play MMOs, had a countdown timer last week indicating that a new title was on the way. Today, the countdown timer expired and Sins of a Dark Age was unveiled.
So what kind of game is it? Well, it features a mix of real-time strategy, third-person action and MMO properties all rolled up into one big, free-to-play experience.
As stated in the press release...
Independent developer Ironclad’s Sins of a Dark Age is a genre-blending gem that seduces both strategic and tactical gamers. This free-to-play fantasy PC game introduces gamers to a new real-time strategy experience: Commander, Army, and Hero will fight side by side in a unique hybrid between the ‘traditional RTS’ and the popular ‘action RTS’. We call it ‘Hero-and-Commander Strategy’.
The game is very similar to Reto-Moto's upcoming Heroes & Generals or S1's classic action title, Savage. There will be a commanding player who takes control of the battlefield from a strategic standpoint and then there will be "hero" players who carry out the commander's plans while facing enemies on the frontlines.
It's an ambitious sounding project and gamers looking for a competitive free-to-play title that's slightly different from all the other RPG grind-fests out there might want to look further into checking out Sins of a Dark Age. You can check out the fact sheet below or pay a visit to the game's Official Website to learn more.
