About "Battle Realms"
"Battle Realms" presents a world of dark fantasy inspired by feudal Asia. Led by "Command & Conquer(r)" Producer Ed Del Castillo, Liquid Entertainment combines unprecedented tactical control with critically hailed innovations like unit alchemy and a living resource system.
The player leads a clan of devoted peasants, training them each to become unique warriors with a thirst for battle. Once trained, warriors face a difficult environment where elevation, weather and other whims of nature affect strategy.
Samurai masters and deadly kabuki warriors face off against warlocks and necromancers in a world that draws its inspiration from both history and fantasy. Armed with a rich story and a robust 3D engine, "Battle Realms" combines a unique, living resource system and a detailed combat model to put the strategy back into real-time strategy.
The Story of "Battle Realms"
Framed for his father's murder, young Kenji disappears and studies the ancient ways of his ancestors.

Competing against the Lotus Clan's dark magic and the Wolf Clan's brute and cunning, Kenji leads his clan in the ancient ways of the Samurai. Balancing living resources in an epic battle of Yin versus Yang, the warriors in "Battle Realms" clash to preserve a way of life and avenge the injustices of the past.
