This game will get you hooked.It’s hundreds of hours of fun for the price of lunch!You’ll experience a never before seen blend of real-time medieval building and combat in a fully destructible multiplayer environment.No other game comes even close to this.This game will give you the most intense action & fighting moments you’ve ever experienced. It beats the best scripted sequences in other games, simply because it’s all real people just like you:playing, having fun and being creative.

It’s still not finished yet, so we will be pumping updates.
After you buy the game we will publish the game mode known from classic - Capture the Flag and later on Zombies (you can still try Zombie Fortress in classic and play on gold servers after purchase, we’re not ceasing classic). We appreciate that a lot of classic players are finding the transition too jarring so we’re hoping we can help you migrate comfortably. We’ll go into this in more detail as soon as possible explaining what’s planned, what isn’t and why.

You buy this game once. It’s not subscription. You pay 9.99$ and have it for life, and have it on Steam or Desura when it’s there. We ask for nothing more beyond common courtesy. In fact we will give YOU something more just because we want this release to be a blast. That’s why for the next 2 weeks the price is still the low “pre-order” price + you get a BONUS.
