Take command of your army as you storm through medieval Europe in an extensive series of campaigns. Choosing one of the four available nations – Viking, Anglo-Saxon, German, Slav – you will be tasked with more than just conquering, raiding and pillaging enemy camps, villages and towns. Only by utilizing the full range of available tactical options, taking strategic advantage of the environment, and managing your temporary bases and settlements, will you emerge victorious.

Ancestors Legacy is a historically accurate real-time strategy game influenced by historical events in the Middle Ages. The game combines resource management and base building with large-scale, squad-based battles across vast battlefields, all rendered in great detail thanks to the Unreal Engine 4 tech. Experience medieval bloodshed like never before, thanks to the cinematic action camera that puts you right in the middle of the battle at the press of a button.

  • 4 playable nations in an extensive single player campaign inspired by historical events
  • Advanced tactical options combining the use of terrain, experience and morale
  • Cinematic battle camera view puts you right in the center of the action
  • Outstanding visual fidelity powered by Unreal Engine 4

Mod Support Comes to Historical RTS Ancestors Legacy on Steam


1C Entertainment and developer Destructive Creations are putting history in your hands. Mod Support through Steam Workshop has been added to critically acclaimed historical RTS, Ancestors Legacy. Purple chickens! Funky warbeats! Cow levels! Near invincible peasants! The medieval battlefields of Ancestors Legacy will never be the same!

Mod Support will enable players to modify and add a number of things to the base game:

  • Maps
  • Characters
  • Animations
  • Game balance
  • Modifying nations
  • Audio
  • Buildings
  • And much more

How to get your hands on the editor

  1. Open Steam Client.
  2. Navigate to "Library" -> "Tools".

  3. Type the game name in the search bar.



  4. Download our Editor content.

Please keep the entire directory chain (not just folder name) as short as possible (eg. D:\Editor). This will help you avoid nasty problems in the future when cooking mods.

The development team will keep on improving the modding kit, so for now it will remain in the Beta version.

such a beautiful game really..few mods are happening fortunatly. I think that graphic, game style and fighing are epic in this game..i forgot the music! awesome. what would be intrsting in this mod would be to have more unit, variety and also more factions..or atleast special heroes to recruit for the factions alrdy in the game. this would give more variety at the gameplay..i dunno..u can pick up only 2 heroes of a roster of 4 each match
