Ancestors Legacy is an awesome RTS game based in medieval times!
It’s not just your typical RTS though, it has some unique concepts and features that make it stand out from the crowd and not just another Starcraft clone set in the times of knights and armor.
For starters, it’s a squad-based RTS. The game was previously in invite-only beta, but now has made a ton of progress and is available for anyone to sign up and play. The game is being made by a team called Destructive Creators and has very impressive graphics and animations. It’s almost like each unit is actually a unit and not just a clone of another one. Imagine if The Sims was an RTS game. The game even has a full day/night cycle, weather, and cutscenes as well.
The multiplayer battles are also very impressive. You can choose from Anglo-Saxon, Slav, German, and Viking armies and the game focus on up close and personal battles against enemy forces with less of a focus on building and resource management. You could think of it kinda like Dynasty Warriors with a touch of resource management- kinda.
The game only awards you resources when you take over enemy or neutral villages. You’ll need to venture out and destroy enemies in order to snowball your army. You can’t just camp and turtle inside your base or else you’ll have no army to defend yourself! The game encourages you to explore and conquer rather than stay in your base and resource management. It’s not dependant on how you can micromanage or how fast you can press your hotkeys.
You can also upgrade the villages you capture and villagers can be managed to collect precious resources as well.
The game takes the RTS genre and puts it in blitz mode. It’s more about action and less about metrics like actions per minutes (APM). Ancestors Legacy is a fresh take on the RTS experience that’s all action and no wait with impressive visuals run by the UE4. It’s currently available for beta sign up.
