Kingdom Under Fire Update

The Gathering reveals new details about the upcoming fantasy real-time strategy game. New screens inside.

Gathering of Developers has released information about the features of Kingdom Under Fire not present in the build we previewed earlier this summer. The forthcoming real-time strategy game from Phantagram puts increasingly powerful heroes at the core of its design. Each of the seven heroes in the game has a dedicated solo mission, where at various points in the story, the hero will leave behind his army and go on a lone quest. As the game progresses, heroes can gain up to 14 levels of experience and progressively improve their abilities. Heroes will also be central in the hero-deathmatch multiplayer mode that Phantagram plans to release after the game ships.

The game's multiplayer mode, which is playable online through Phantagram's Wargate.net service, will also include standard competitive real-time strategy play and cooperative story-based play.

The game is scheduled for release in October, and sign-ups for the public beta of the game just opened yesterday.
