Under the new name of Kingdom Wars, Reverie World Studios’ castle siege MMORTS will be free-to-play from this September on Steam. Early access is available with bonus content.
“With Kingdom Wars going free-to-play our primary goal is to create a large player community that loves and supports our games”, said Konstantin Fomenko, Reverie World CEO. “To this end we did not go the standard Pay to Win route, instead opting for limited micro-transactions that doesn’t affect gameplay mechanics in any way. It’s a game of skill, not bigger wallets”
Thousands of new players will build their empires and battle online without having to pay anything to speed up gameplay or unlock premium content. Kingdom Wars is one of the first persistent 3D MMO titles with real-time siege combat. Offering an evolving online environment, in which players gather resources, build towns and castles, complete dozens of storyline quests, and eventually build an empire – all within an online realm that grows, works, and breathes even when you log off.
In the weeks leading up the official launch of free-to-play, Kingdom Wars Premium Package is available for early access, on Steam for $4.99. This is a great chance to get a head-start on thousands of players who are soon to follow, as well as to obtain over $20 of content – including all customization and decoration options that new players will have to unlock.
