CDV Brings 'Stranger' to North America

by Rainier on Jan. 21, 2008 @ 5:15 p.m. PST

Stranger is a real-time strategy game, with elements of role playing games set in a world, split in two parts, surface and a subterranean one, which are in a tenuous balance. Stranger will also feature multiplayer, although details beyond "The players may play on their own, or unite in teams" are a bit sketchy.

Stranger is a blend of traditional real-time strategy and role-playing elements, set in a rich fantasy world populated by more than a hundred unique monster types. Players will take control of one of three available heroes, enjoying a single-player campaign lasting more than 30 hours, while also being able to take their game online in eight-person Internet multiplayer matches.

An innovative magical system allows to select one's strategy and tactics in the course of a battle and thus giving an adequate answer to an enemy's turn - you will be surprised by its simplicity and variety at the same time. Hiring, training and control over squads of infantry and archers - you will take part in clarification of the eternal question of what more is important - might and weapon or cunning and magic. There are three heroes - different from each other, each one with own personality and preferences in combat and magic. What will happen when they assemble in a single squad? Colorful universe of Stranger inhabited not only with hundreds of types of monsters but also with intelligent tribes, which can either be your allies or enemies.

"We're very pleased to work with cdv USA on this title,” said Ludmila Ludvig, Managing Director of Fireglow Games. “Their experience in releasing successful strategy and role-playing titles makes cdv USA the ideal local partner to deliver Stranger to North American audiences.”
