Paradox Interactive today announced that Knights of Honor will now reach North American retail shelves May 10, "a few weeks" after its previous release date. Publisher Paradox delayed the game "to ensure the game will be more widely available in all parts of North America." The PC game is being developed by Bulgaria-based Black Sea Studios.
Knights of Honor challenges gamers to build a powerful empire in medieval Europe and combines real-time strategy elements with a diplomatic wargame. Players will have to master warfare, espionage, religion, diplomacy, and kingdom management in order to conquer enemies to expand and maintain their reign.
The game will feature six types of knights, with various abilities, and more than 50 military units. Across the three architecturally unique regions, gamers will be able to build more than 60 structures and upgrades to improve defense and production of each province. The game supports up to six players and has nine game modes to choose from.
