Rising Lords is a stylish turn based strategy game that incorporates card and board game elements as you lead your forces to victory in tactical medieval battles.
Playable in a single player Campaign mode and competitive online multiplayer with up to four players, Rising Lords is a medieval turn based strategy game where you can use vastly different tactics to defeat your enemies. You’ll need to manage resources, raise armies and build defenses as in other strategy games, but the psychology of war and the tactics you use can have just as big an effect on the outcome of a battle as the size of your army.
You’ll be able to play mind games with your opponent via advanced social interactions. Your troops’ morale, the terrain they’re fighting on and fortifications can me major factors in a battle. Also, an all out attack isn’t always the best course of action – you can also use other approaches such as besieging their cities to starve them out or sitting back and let them come to you.
It’s a great looking game with a great Terry Gilliam/Python-esque visual style and turn based tactical battles with plenty of strategic depth. A game where tactics and mind games can win over brute force.
