Kingmaker is a very revolutionary concept as a mod because it will allow the gamer to make many more decisions regarding how he plays. These decisions will calibrate the character he plays as to the extreme, and his effect on the battles of Kingmaker.
The battles will be exhilarating and believable; something in our opinion has been lost in the vast array of mods around the world. You, having defined the way you want to play the game will be active in accord to many different methods such as light skirmishing, armed with a longbow and perhaps a single handed sword protected by light leather armour to allow you full mobility on the field of glory. Or on the other hand you may choose to work your way up to becoming a Lord, the master of any melee, heavily armed with a double handed sword, and protected by a steel cuirass with leg guards.
Each different type of soldier calibrated will have a different ability on the field of battle and a different speciality when in combat. The extensive list of arms and armour from a simple single handed sword to a destructive and greatly feared arbalest capable of shooting a bolt with killing power nearly 150m will mean that you will never be short of weapons and equipment to arm yourself with.
Each fight will usually be in two distinct stages, first will be the exchange of fire from missile troops to wear down the opponents ability to fight in the next stage, the great melee. Each army will close together and enter into a murderous clash of swords against swords, polearms against polearms until one side are cut down in a haze of red and the stench of death surrounding or until one of the battle choose to save themselves and flee the field of honour and glory.
Kingmaker's unique gameplay style encourages the use of teamwork to complete objectives and win the round and will be hand in hand with the world of clans. Teamwork will be an essential part of capturing the enemy's locations, or simply surviving the enemy's onslaught as they charge in waves down onto your ranks. Clan matches will be decided on the individual discipline of the men, and the collective teamwork of the entire team utilising their skill to the utmost efficiency and effect when they need it.
The way to becoming master of the field of battle has many routes, but they all will test your ability to think fast and act decisively on the battlefield, from leading men into unparalleled success to luring the enemy into a trap and achieving victory by the slain of the enemy but all ways will require the thrusting of cold steel into another soldier's chest, in Kingmaker: A Country Divided; supreme ruler of all the modding Kingdom.
