Update time! We did say we’d be a little quiet as we made headway with our next update, but we still have some wonderful new additions to show you guys!

A small announcement also! We have officially formed an internal testing and QA team, which is currently looking for more members, if you have a lot of time on your hands and have a passion for breaking games then please head on over to our discord and message the head of QA: R4AMPZY.

Starting with 3D and the fearsome Demigryphs we previously revealed, they have multiple armour variants to truly bring their majesty into battle!demigryph armor 001

We will also continue to slowly add variety to the Empire now that the foundations are more or less there, and there are never enough hats or helmets!

The vampire armies will now be seen carrying this display of power into battles as their elite units tear your armies to shreds

Finally our campaign map has a whole suite of new assets that will spice up the Old World, not only this but in future they may be used in a variety of ways such as points of interest and more!

In preparation for the next release cannons and their function within battles is becoming finalised, work is also being done on a new status and effects system for items and combat but we’ll go into more detail about that soon!


The lore department have worked towards getting the new troop trees into the game and balance testing them, soon these new units will be in your hands! Work doesn’t stop there however; they are also coming up with the troop tree concepts for all future factions which we will be very excited to show in coming updates!

The lore team will also be holding a small competition with our wonderful community soon, with the exciting opportunity for some of you to get your very own companion into the game! We’ll release a more detailed announcement soon.

We are still looking for Sound Engineers/Artists, 3D artists, Sceners and C# Coders. If you are interested in any of these roles, or any of the others, feel free to head over to our #applications channel on the discord! Everyone is completely welcome.
