Seed Studios' PS3 exclusive real time strategy game Under Siege features an original world, unique gameplay elements and a large number of multiplayer and community features with special emphasis on user generated content.

Under Siege is an action and strategy game in real time, where a small group of heroes fight against a huge invading army. The game is set in a medieval fantasy world and follows the story of Eirik, Kari and Asgeir, and allows single or multiplaying (up to 4 people simultaneously). Designed to be played with the DualShock3 controller or the PlayStation®Move motion controller.

The editor allows players to create their own maps and game modes. Also among other features, Under Siege interfaces with several social networks, providing a way to directly upload pictures on Facebook, save replays, record videos and upload them immediately on Youtube and the main social networks.
