'Crown Wars: The Black Prince' Delayed A Week, Shows Off Gameplay Features - Trailer

As the fighting rages in the Hundred Years' War, you are the head of a noble family seeking glory in this tactical turn-based strategy game.

In Crown Wars: The Black Prince, the player dives into the Hundred Years' War, which embroiled several royal families in bloody conflict, with the crown of the most powerful kingdom of the West as the prize. But that is without taking a powerful Evil into account, one that can change History. A secret and diabolical organisation is sewing chaos throughout the kingdom in its quest for power.

In these troubled times, the game lets you play as a young lord from one of 4 families that have fallen out of favour, each with particular skills and its own history that is revealed as the game progresses. Guided by the mysterious alchemist Nicolas Flamel, you must restore your lands to their former glory and lead the fight against brigands, knights and the henchmen of the Order, the dark power behind the reign of terror. In order to liberate the kingdom from invasion and corrupting evil, you must recruit, equip and train squads of companions comprised of the 6 classes of soldiers available in the game. Without you, the war is lost.

You are the last hope of the Brotherhood of Light.

Initially planned for March 14, 2024, then brought forward one week until March 7, Crown Wars: The Black Prince appears to have been delayed back to its March 14 date.

A new gameplay video for Crown Wars: The Black Prince was released today, which shows all the main gameplay features.

Fight enemy factions and battle an evil force that has corrupted the highest echelons of power and is exploiting the conflict for its own gain through a violent and mysterious cult.

From your castle – your seat of operations – recruit, equip and train your soldiers to fight your enemies and protect the population. Build your squads to suit your needs as you set out to find the source of the Evil and thwart the malevolent plot.

Your management and diplomacy skills will be put to the test. Upgrade your castle, forge ties with other families, and manage your resources wisely.

With the world on the brink of collapse, there can only be one solution: Evil must be defeated.

Crown Wars: The Black Prince is coming to PS5, Xbox Series X|S and PC (Steam) on March 14, 2024, followed by Nintendo Switch a little later.
