King Arthur is an empire-building strategy game set in a medieval, mystical Britain where you will play the role of legendary Arthur, the Once and Future King. You build Camelot, enlist the Knights of the Round Table, unite the country and ultimately challenge the powers threatening the essence of all their previous endeavors. You choose their own path, be it the way of virtuous glory, the might of the Sidhe or your wish to succumb to the dark powers.

Lead hundreds of brave warriors on the magnificent battlefields of Britannia! King Arthur incorporates strategy as its most important element and offers such long-term game experience that makes the overall enjoyment similar to that provided by empire building strategies. Arthur's main objective is to conquer all 40 provinces of Britain, build grandiose medieval cities and unite the kingdom with his Knights of the Round Table. These heroes can be assigned to adventures, they participate in battles as unique units and they indirectly influence the life of the provinces.

Britannia was reborn but suddenly it is threatened by a great war. There are some powerful rulers who also want to conquer the realm and don't believe or care that King Arthur might be the Once and Future King. They are dangerous rivals: the warlord-king of Wales, the monster-slaying Saxons and all the savage tribes of the north who gather around the flag of Morgawse, the Witch Queen of Orkney.

The majestic Strongholds of King Arthur – The Role-playing Wargame are the magic castles of the legends, now reborn in Britannia; the cities of wonders that wizards used to summon out of thin air during one night.

There are only a handful of locations where it is possible to build a Stronghold. They used to be the palaces of gods and kings in the ancient times, but they had been destroyed. But now, as the tides of wonder sweep over Britannia again, the time is right to restore these colossal keeps… because in a Stronghold everything is possible.


In King Arthur, Strongholds are the centers for development and research – and also huge, beautiful battlegrounds. These mythical medieval cities offer almost unrestricted construction possibilities and a diversified tech tree. The first of the Strongholds will be the legendary Camelot.

All Strongholds are unique, and as the number of available strongholds is limited, the management never becomes a boring routine. Each Stronghold could specialize to serve a different purpose, like a centre for economic growth, the focus of religion, education or the training of heroes. The development of the realm also takes place here, with the constructions and the nuances of the Chancellery, like setting taxes, passing laws and doing global research into magic or technology.

You will also have to conquer other Strongholds. These special battles take place on spectacular battlemaps: you will have to fight your way through a living, sprawling city, between unique medieval buildings, through the twisting alleys and huge plazas to the key locations, the cathedrals, towers and keeps.
