Conquer England with King Arthur: The Role-playing WargameTubular

In terms of role-playing, your hero units can level up – just like in Warcraft III. They are all members of the Round Table Knights, and can be assigned to control a military group. However, because of the addition of ‘Role-Playing’ to the game name, Neocore decided to further strengthen this element by making all units in the game able to level up. You will have a point to increase the stats of each unit type when leveling up (melee, defensive, magic, cost, etc.)

In addition to those system elements, a very nice feature was created and included in the gameplay that was already quite complicated by King Arthur: the virtue of the player. The way in which you conduct your battle will be shown on an index bar. Your decisions will directly affect this increase or decrease.

You can choose to worship the gods of Old Majickal Relijun, or the new religion of God, you can choose to help the good-natured neighbors, or conspiracy-dedicated warlords. Your actions may not make you lose any advantage, but the farther you go in one direction, the more upgrades and new units you will receive. This means you will have to choose your path right from the beginning of the game.

King Arthur is not a gentle game, you will need at least 2GB of RAM along with a pretty average video card to be able to play smoothly. However, your investment will be returned with polished graphics and very rewarding details of the game. In the early versions, the system also encountered a lot of camera errors, and some units were completely unbalanced as the developer wanted. Therefore, installing patch 1.02 is a must if you want to enjoy the game without being bothered. After this version, everything runs quite stable and comfortable.

Although not a popular and widely popular game, King Arthur: Wargame’s Role-Playing is a “bargain” entertainment for strategy game lovers. The game has many deep designs, high replayability and a fitting story, so you can spend about 50 hours playing. This is probably the best average PC game of this genre that you can find in the current situation.




Conquer England with King Arthur: The Role-playing Wargame (Part 1)

For a concept o this game from European developer Neocore Games, we can mention the Total War series plus immersive elements. In the game, you will play the role of King Arthur, who is in charge of the throne inheritance after King Uther Pendragon has just died. At that time, the Excalibur was still in stone in the West Midlands. The strategy part of the game is played on a large map of Britannia, and when a battle takes place, the game switches to real-time strategy mode.

The player’s task is to delay the fight to fully unify Britannia, or to put it another way, to re-enact King Arthur’s most glorious victories. In battle, players will be able to control hero characters with magical abilities. They can call rain and wind, using supernatural powers to sweep enemies. Units fighting near heroes will gain morale, and this directly affects their combat performance. If the leadership of the army is taken down or arrested, the consequences for the whole are irreplaceable.

Victory Point points are available in each map. Their importance will be emphasized by the camera by passing through the opening phase of the battle. Players will have to occupy them by cornering troops for a short time. Each Victory Point gives the whole army some support: The long fences help your archers have more time to spread bullets to the enemy, a church will restore the soldiers standing nearby.

Assembly said that if you don’t want microphones to manage taxes and game battles, your army will be subject to 5% penalty points in Total War. Neocore is even more cruel in King Arthur, because a bit of your neglect will cause heavy losses, and the cost to rebuild the force is really exorbitant in this game. In fact, if you feel you have lost more than you can, go back to the battle and try another way, because the consequences of these losses will last – very long in the next steps.
