Texas-based developer Kinesoft sent us a batch of new character art from its upcoming real-time strategy game MageLords. The game combines campaign-scale strategy with unit-based tactical battles to create a unique mix of empire-building strategy and real-time tactics. Players assume the role of a MageLord, an immortal sorcerer and leader of one of six races of creatures vying for control of the land. Strategic decisions regarding unit building and resource and city management are made on a large-scale campaign map, while battles take place on smaller-scale tactical 3D maps. For more information about MageLords, read our in-depth preview of the game.
MageLords is scheduled for release in mid-2001.
