It’s like Age of Empires. Which is awesome.
Today at Gamescom, Kalypso Media announced Grand Ages: Medieval, a real time strategy game that is currently being worked on that is set in the High Middle Ages while Europe is in a period of huge change and rapid population growth. Playing on a map that offers a staggering 30 million square kilometers, players are challenged to lead their small, rural society through the ages, and become a world conquering empire. Yes, guys, it sounds like Age of Empires. And that is friggin awesome.
Grand Ages: Medieval will be more nuanced than just those classic strategy games, though, as it will also challenge players to prioritize economic and cultural development, while also having the player face the devastating effects of natural disasters like storms, fires, volcanoes, droughts, earthquakes… or even the Black Death.
The game is due out on the PC some time in 2015. Stay tuned to GamingBolt for more coverage on it, as well as all the latest and greatest from Gamescom.
