'Highland Warriors' - Screens

The ATLAS 3D graphics engine was developed by Soft Enterprises and offers a 3D experience never rendered so successfully in RTS games. Burning buildings and mounted cavalry utilize over 7000 polygons, trees sway in the wind, and everything from windmills to rabbits have real-time shadow effects.

Other Features:

  • Climate is a variable weapon, changing before a player’s eyes.
  • Units can be strategically upgraded making them experts at a particular task.
  • Each clan has its own hero with special talents as well as the ability to make the Units around them better, or in some cases worse.
  • The Heroes have passive and active magic abilities. Some of the Units have special abilities as well; Druids become invisible, Wizards teleport and Sorcerers have the power to cast spells that cause absolute destruction.
  • Highland Warriors will be available in retail stores in early February, 2003. In the US it is priced at $49.99. It’s available for pre-order online at Databecker.

A complete demo is available on the Worthplaying fileservers.
