Rising Lords is due for release next year.

Argonwood has announced Rising Lords, a new turn-based strategy game, set in a mediaeval world, that will include card and board game elements. The title is due for release on PC in 2019.

Rising Lords will have a ‘sizable’ single-player campaign, along with a multiplayer mode, allowing up to four players to battle it out.

Collect taxes and resources. Dictate rations and field work. Forge weapons, reshape the battlefield, raise armies, and build mighty fortified cities. Help your people become knights, or dump them on a battlefield far away, but be careful: even the most humble peasants will revolt eventually…

Features will include:

  • Find the perfect balance – juggle production, resource gathering, diplomacy and treason, tax and rations – all vital in the success of your provinces
  • Strategic battles – besiege your enemy’s cities to starve them out, go all-out attack, or wait for them to come to you
  • Up to 4-player simultaneous multiplayer – no need to wait for each individual player to take their turn
  • The psychology of war – Play mind games with your opponents with advanced social interactions
  • Subtle variables – Morale, terrain and fortifications have a huge impact on battle, and the tide can turn quickly
  • Customisation – Tailor your leader’s look and skills, and craft your perfect cities and troops
  • Risks and opportunities – React to figures that visit your province. Find ways to take advantage, and work quickly to eliminate threats!
  • Take your pick – React to 50 different events and collect unique cards to surprise your enemy!
  • Interested players can add Rising Lords to their Steam wishlist right now to receive updates on the games progress.

    Rising Lords will be released on PC sometime in 2019.
