About Judy

As WP's senior editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games...

by Judy on Oct. 4, 2004 @ 9:49 a.m. PDT

Microsoft today announced that the Xbox action-strategy game, Kingdom Under Fire: The Crusaders, has gone gold and is set to ship to retail stores on October 12. The medieval struggle between the dark legion and the human race is upon this world. Players will have their choice to command both bad and good forces in an epic battle for the Holy Lands or take their medieval warriors onto Xbox Live in head-to-head deathmatch action.

Set 50 years after the War of Heroes, players assume the role of a general in a fantasy battlefield. Players must fight alongside their troops and use catapults, dragons or any means necessary to crush the Dark Legions and put an end to the terror they've unleashed on the sacred Holy Grounds. Kingdom Under Fire: The Crusaders features up to 100 characters and allows up to 150 units to fight on one screen, boasting breathtaking battles on an epic scale. In third-person perspective, players' characters will progress from basic troops to more specialized and powerful units. Throughout 30 hours of playtime, players can choose to battle as the Humans or Dark Legions in more than 60 different maps. Mission types include all-out war, castle siege, scouting, trapping and more. Gamers can also compete head-to-head or team up with other players in Deathmatch battles via Xbox Live. Players can enhance their missions by downloading new mission packs, weapons and armor while tracking their performance with Xbox Live scoreboards. Kingdom Under Fire: The Crusaders was developed by the renowned game developer in Korea, Phantagram, LTD.
