Embers of War is an impressive looking narrative driven tower defense game, with highly customizable towers, towers that you can take control of in first person, co-op play and intense third person combat.
Embers of War is a tower defense game at its core, but there’s a lot more to this game than just that. It features a rich sci-fi lore and deep story more akin to an adventure game, as well as fast paced third person combat more akin to a horde mode shooter. There’s a selection of different characters to choose from, each with unique abilities and the tower customization options allow for over 72 different combinations – so you really can build turrets for any occasion.
It’s a great looking game, that manages to add a meaningful narrative and third person combat to the tower defense genre without dumbing down the tower defense elements (if anything they’re more complex). Sign up for the Beta now to enjoy this evolution of tower defense.
