Astute GameSpot readers may recognize today's entry in our weeklong free-to-play series: Sins of a Dark Age from developer Ironclad Games. Readers will also (hopefully) recognize Ironclad as the developer of the critically acclaimed real-time strategy game Sins of a Solar Empire. Its next game takes you out of space and into the Dark Ages. Sins of a Dark Age is a massive online battle arena, in the same vein as Heroes of Newerth or Dota 2, but with an interesting twist: the commander position. One player per team serves as a combat tactician; that player does not control a hero unit, but instead commands all the team's minions and issues orders to the other players. All the early details are in the videos below.
