Strategy First is pleased to announce that it has entered into a co-publishing agreement with Empire Interactive to bring Warrior Kings: Battles to the North American market. “Warrior Kings: Battles is an exceptional RTS that fits into Strategy First’s line-up perfectly,” says Don McFatridge, President of Strategy First. “We couldn’t be happier to work with a top publisher like Empire and we hope that this is the beginning of a long lasting partnership.”

“We are enthused to partner with Strategy First for the release of Warrior Kings: Battles,” says Jimmy Lamorticelli, General Manager of Empire Interactive US. ”With their outstanding reputation for publishing this genre, the game will outshine the competition.”

Warrior Kings: Battles introduces players to a proficiency of computer AI not yet seen in an RTS. Not only can AI Generals build a functioning economy, deploy offensive and defensive armies, and control potent formations, but they can also intelligently probe your defenses to determine your weak points. AI Diplomacy makes you think you are playing human opponents, giving new depth to single and multiplayer Internet gaming.

Features Include:

  • Unparalleled real-time strategy gaming. Radical 3D technology brings terrain, provinces and cultures alive like no other RTS!
  • Go your own way: choose the paths of the Imperial church, the Pagan gods or that of Renaissance technology - develop different civilizations, units & abilities
  • Use real military tactics with a supreme range of combat tools - select from cavalry, rocket launchers, catapults, spies, war elephants, arch druids, elementals, golems, summoned beings and many more! Strategically use terrain, arms and formations to beat all others
  • Advanced A.I. opponents probe your defenses for weaknesses and seek alliances just like human players – unlike any other strategy game! Play a mix of human opponents and AI Generals, each with their own strategies and personalities
  • Valhalla Battles mode allows you to jump into the action faster and let’s you play shorter games. No economy, no peasants, no research, no upgrades. It’s just carnage, carnage, carnage!
  • 22 mission non-linear campaign offers over 40 hours of single player gaming
  • Game modes include Skirmish, Internet, Capture The Flag, Siege, Protect Your King and many others
