Clans of Reign is a brutal gladiatorial melee combat game that sees you battling knights and undead monsters in a rich medieval world.
Playable in single-player or online multiplayer, Clans of Reign is an isometric arena brawler with tactical and brutal melee based combat. Main single-player game modes at the moment include a gladiatorial arena battle against increasingly challenging medieval knights, a battle against waves of undead skeletons in the ruins of a castle and a skirmish mode. Meanwhile the online multiplayer modes include deathmatch, team deathmatch and last man standing modes.
It’s a fun game, but there are a few issues with the controls at the moment. The controls feel cumbersome and seem like they’d work much better if you were able to use a control pad. Also, the roll dodge move currently rolls you in the direction your mouse is facing instead of the direction you’re holding with the WASD keys – this is pretty unintuitive and often means that when you attempt to roll out of trouble, you end up rolling deeper into it!
It’s still early in development though and these are minor issues that will hopefully be addressed in future builds. There’s a lot of fun to be had with the current build once you’ve got to grips with its controls, with a variety of different single-player and multiplayer game modes, beautiful visuals and satisfyingly tactical melee based combat. Well worth checking out for some brutal sword swinging fun!
