Former Creative Assembly developers at independent studio Tower Five announced that their story-driven fantasy action-strategy game Lornsword Winter Chronicle is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows (Steam)
Lornsword Winter Chronicle combines real-time strategy gameplay with an engaging narrative and a direct, action-based control system designed for a gamepad. A dynamic battlefield means battles are hard fought affairs, where blade and shot will be traded in kind as rival factions battle for power and control. Lornsword Winter Chronicle tells the story of an age where the dark magic of priests and shadow weavers clashes with the skilled range attacks of arrows and matchlock rifles in fierce combat.
Players take control of Corun, a Lornknight placed in command of the small fortified town of Tulza in the southern province of the Lorn Empire. As the Lornknight in charge your survival depends on your leadership skills to build bases, gather food and supplies and utilize mines for gold to fund your army.
However, the hardships of combat need not be suffered alone, Lornsword Winter Chronicle’s drop-in local co-op allows players to bring in a friend to take the fight to any oppressors. You will also need to keep a keen eye on resources in order to feed and equip your army in an ever demanding economy as your base expands. Lornsword Winter Chronicle is a game where exploration, combat and resource management go hand in hand.
“Lornsword Winter Chronicle is real-time strategy game built specifically for gamepad controls. Rarely do console players get an opportunity where this control mechanism is built into the fabric of the design from the outset in an RTS”, said Renaud Charpentier, Game Director at Tower Five. “The game provides players with a great combination of combat, resource management and base building with a narrative that will keep them enthralled for hours.”
Lornsword Winter Chronicle also features a rousing orchestral score by Hungarian composer Thomas-Adam Habuda, whose previous work includes promotional music tracks for 20th Century Fox’s ‘Alita: Battle Angel’ and more recently Marvel’s ‘Avengers: Endgame’.
Coinciding with the console launch, Lornsword Winter Chronicle has come out of Steam Early Access, unleashing the full adventure upon Windows PC players.
