One of the games I had a chance to play at PAX East was Avalon Lords: Dawn Rises, a new real time strategy game from Animus Interactive. When I was shown a demo of the gameplay, it brought to mind old school real time strategy classics like Age of Empires, or if you’d like a more current analogy, the Total War series. You can start by gathering resources and building cities, or go straight into the fray with the Army Builder. Up to six players can participate in Team Deathmatch or Free-For-All, so you can create really huge conflicts on Avalon Lords’ 3D maps. The amount of detail I saw was impressive for a strategy game, and I think with some fine tuning and a bit more polish it could one day stand up to other real time strategy classics.
Being Early Access, Avalon Lords: Dawn Rises is very much still a work in progress, but if you’d like to check it out for yourself, we have a gallery of screenshots and a trailer for you below.
