The game is set several years after Warlord and Lords of Atelia, and the world of Iron Grip is plagued by conflict. Superpowers aspire to control smaller nations, plunging the land of Iron Grip into a continent-wide war. In the tradition of the Iron Grip series, Marauders once again employs strategy elements: the medium this time is your browser window, with strategic army and base-building to make your soldiers your own. Players take up the reigns as opportunistic Marauders – bands of militaristic pirates controlling armies that serve no nation, instead seeking riches, infamy, or any other number of private goals. The objective is simple: build the strongest army and conquer. But as easy as that sounds, when your primary opponent is other clever players – nothing is ever quite as simple as words make it out to be.
Beta sign-ups are already being accepted on the game’s official website, with some lucky participants getting pre-beta access to check the game out before the closed beta goes live.
Marauders is a long-term, ever-expanding project. The game will feature an intricate, detailed universe built upon steadily over time, and ISOTX is committed to updating the game regularly with new features, support and fixes. As the community grows, so too will Marauders.
Some of the key features the game offers are:
- A free-to-play environment: With no monthly or registration fees, anyone has the option to join Marauders!
- Aside from a one-time download, the entire game available immediately to be played straight from a browser window and is compatible with all browser types – as long as you’ve got an internet connection, it’s possible to play.
- Spectacular 3D graphics in your browser – watch your troops fight before your eyes!
- Take part in a battle against AI or participate in our ever-growing multiplayer experience!
Like many browser games, Marauders will feature both a closed and open beta, with signups beginning as early as this month. Players will be offered an opportunity to test the game long before it reaches public eye and help shape the production with productive feedback. The exact release date of the beta has not yet been announced, but is expected to be in the summer of 2010. The game’s website is already online and visible at the official website.
