While summer is finally settling in with its usual low amount of video games news, we received a preview version of Blue Bytes upcoming game: Champions of Anteria. The game is due for release in late August and is published by Ubisoft. We will not talk about the somehow tumultuous development of the game (originally announced in 2014 as The Settlers: Kingdoms of Anteria originally) and we will go straight to the point with a few videos of this strategy / management turn-based game coupled with real time combat missions. As usual, if you want to read the full preview, head over to the French side.
Champions of Anteria seems like an interesting game in which alternating different gameplay phases should manage to keep monotony and simplicity away. With its wacky story, its dynamic campaign and its apparent replay value, we hope the final version will be able to sublimate all those aspects. Yet, the lifespan of the game is still unclear and we will also have to wait until we can play the final build to make sure the combat system has enough depth to it to keep players interested in the long run.
@Melmoth: i have a feeling it's going to kinda flop. it feels like EA sent it out to die. (1 minute ago)
the reviews i've read of TF2 agrees on the campaign being short but great, and the multiplayer raising the bar. i have a feeling it's gonna fall between two stools concerning sales. (25 minutes ago)
i got BF1 and Raptor got TF2, both digital. Hello game sharing hehe lol I get to play both hehe (36 minutes ago)
@alimokrane: the 4 houir campaign bums me out. but the fact it's getting free maps and modes is definitely tempting me. even if it is COD with mechs. (39 minutes ago)
