Curious about how you play the upcoming MMORTS from 505 Games, Dawn of Fantasy? Well, a brief walkthrough of the war tactics and gameplay details have been revealed in a new press release. The game modes, the way players attack and how they defend are all explained…in great detail.
Basically, there are two main approaches to the game that includes a single-player mode where players will foster resources and military might, and then a world multiplayer mode where players will take their armies and travel across the land to do battle.
As stated in the press release…
These armies can be tasked to either defend their own town or to raze other strongholds on the World Map, a strategic overview of the world. Upon reaching a player or NPC town on the strategy map, armies are given the opportunity to declare war and engage in all-out combat, switching to a tactical view for battles.There are also additional modes such as “Lay Siege”, which sees players attacking enemy strongholds in either a practice mode or in a persistent online multiplayer arena. And yet another mode in the game includes “Defend Castle”, which is basically a survival mode that pits players against wave after wave of attackers.
Whether you’re online or not, the kingdom you establish in Mythador is ever persistent and will grow and expand or fall and waver based on how you setup your kingdom’s economy. It’s definitely a fascinating sounding MMO which seems to take a sort of Mortal Online approach to the persistent world genre.
