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.
You should definitely skip it if you intend to skip the single player.. but you shouldn't skip it because of the multiplayer (15 minutes ago)
@Tinks: MP is indeed ass. and the snap map feature turned out to be crap from the dozen or so maps i played. (17 minutes ago)
It's a meaty campaign too. And you'll probably like the MP anyway. It's a fun throw-away experience. (1 Hour ago)
@Tinks: The single player campaign is the best raw action FPS gameplay since Painkiller though, it's totally worth it. (2 Hours ago)
if the MP ain't good I ain't buyin it (2 Hours ago)
@KORNdog: the headset itself is selling for almost $600. It's unusually expensive considering there's proper distribution of sony products here in retail. (6 Hours ago)
@Melmoth: it seems cheaper to break things down and buy older stick. Like the sqare design camera can be had for less than the new one. And old move controllers less than the ore packaged VR ones. (6 Hours ago)
