“This fourth installment in the Warlords line will appeal to both fans of the series and new players alike,” said Garrett Graham, producer for the Warlords franchise at Ubi Soft Entertainment. “With a new tactical combat system, more diplomacy, spells, abilities and new enemies, Warlords IV: Heroes of Etheria takes the Warlords experience to new heights with immersive gameplay that’s just plain fun.”

“Unlike many strategy games where you find yourself routinely employing the same method to win every level, Warlords IV has some tough and resourceful AI opponents that demand players learn multiple strategies in order to conquer different enemies and achieve their goals,” said Gregor Whiley, producer of Warlords IV at Strategic Studies Group. “The RPG aspects of the game make for an even more enthralling experience as you find yourself searching for magical items and building your hero’s skills in order to take on more difficult enemies as the game progresses.”
