Sins Of A Dark Age Screenshots Reveal Strategy Fans' Future Addiction
Ironclad Games, the developers of hit 4X strategy game Sins of a Solar Empire, released a flood of screenshots for their next game. Sins of a Dark Age is a free-to-play game that blends the real-time strategy and MOBA genres in a medieval fantasy setting.
"Sins of a Dark Age is a ‘Hero and Commander Strategy’ Game," explains Ironclad's website. "In short, you will join an online team consisting of one Commander and a small group of Heroes who work together to accomplish a specific scenario goal. Your team will go head-to-head against an enemy team in a short, fast-paced multiplayer match or you’ll work cooperatively against the AI in custom scenarios. You can earn rewards for yourself and your clan, climbs the ranks, and watch and share your most glorious replays online. You’ll be able to choose from an ever-growing pool of heroes, commanders and factions each of which supports unique capabilities."
Playing a Hero sounds similar to playing League of Legends. You'll directly control the leader of an A.I. army and battle your way through enemy forces. You have access to a number of unique abilities and items and gain more as the match proceeds.
The Commander role, meanwhile, is a more traditional real-time strategy experience. You build bases, raise armies, and then send these units into the field alongside the player-controlled heroes. You'll also have access to magical "Realm Powers" to assist your forces or hurt the enemy.
Sins sounds like a really fascinating mix of genres. We'll see if it catches on among the eSports crowd. Game's due out later this year.
