Road to Empire! Our Biggest Expansion Yet!

March 13th, 2014

Conquer the world for fun and profit

We are really excited to share the biggest news since Dawn of Fantasy: Kingdom Wars launched - the upcoming release of the Empire expansion. The massive Empire expansion completely reinvents the gameplay - changing Kingdom Wars from local city building game, into massive empire building simulation. And in tune with our company values and tradition - this expansion is absolutely free! This is a way for us to give back to the community that has supported us over the years, sticking with us through the bugs and lag, and aided us in polishing and improving the game.

Empire’s main feature is greatly expanding the scope and length of the game. In Empire, players will get the opportunity to literally take over the world - commanding a huge military, political and economic empire that covers the entire game world - from the human Southmount Mountains to the desolate deserts of Brakental.

While players still start the game with one town, the ultimate goal would be fighting to create and maintain an empire of up to 30 towns, that players captures, controls and defends. And the best part - the second major feature of Empire - we are greatly expanding the PvP concept of the game - now players will fight other players for control of all the large towns on the world map, with town control shifting between players based on the outcome of the battle.

Let’s break it down

What's in the expansion?

The Empire expansion comes with an impressive list of features, given the total game changing nature of this expansion.

Control up to 30 Towns - players are now able to control and maintain up to 30 towns on the World Map, including their starting homeland, and all the predesigned capital towns

Conquer and Defend - with new PvP options players now fight each other over control of predesigned capital towns on the World Map. The player who wins the siege will control the town, with the loser retreating as they watch their empire shrink

Additional Options - while some players will prefer to conquer and defend their towns against other players, we are keeping the option for Singleplayer conquest, or even CoOp conquest - take over the world together with your friends

Create a Trade Empire - as your Empire grows so will your expenses and logistics. To help with empire maintenance we are including a Trade empire functionality - allowing players to establish automated trade-routes with various pros and cons between various towns in their empire

New Town Management - controlling vast empires made easy with the ability to use new town management interface - assign workers tasks with easy Worker Management, select what units to train with a click of the mouse. Inside your towns you can now - Manage Economy, Manage Trade, Recruit Units, Recruit Mercenaries, Level Units, Heal Units, Trade Goods, Trade Livestock and so much more.

Patch 24

Bug free game?

With the countdown to the Empire release our team put all the efforts into making sure we squeeze the last remaining bugs left in-game, as well as greatly increasing performance. To this effort we are releasing Patch 24 - ‘the patch to end all patches’. Part A of this patch was released last week, with the final Part B - scheduled to be released next week. And the difference is truly remarkable:

* We have greatly improved PvP and CoOp experience - eliminating virtually all multiplayer lag, fixing almost all out of sync issues, and improving countless other things related to PvP and CoOp

* As part of 24 B - we are fixing the last remaining issues with rare cases of missing units, crowns, resources or resetting unit stats. We understand how annoying these bugs were and we hope these issues will be a thing of the past

* Countless other fixes and improvements from pathfinding, to new orc player stronghold designs, and so much more.

Our goal with Patch 24 is to fix the game for good - and we are proud to say we are almost there. Please judge for yourself and give it a try.

We look forward to seeing everyone in-game.

About the Game

Dawn of Fantasy: Kingdom Wars is the first full 3D MMORTS with real-time siege combat. Offering an evolving online environment, in which you will be gathering resources, constructing buildings and walls, directing your citizens, completing quests in the service of mighty nobles and fiendish rogues, and managing your economy - all within an online realm that grows, works, lives, and breathes even when you log off. All this is glorious 3d world with stunning level of detail and epic scale - with vibrant towns and thousand strong armies. And of-course let’s not forget the glorious siege battles all in real-time! Developed by Reverie World Studios, Dawn of Fantasy: Kingdom Wars is the result of several years of hard work by a new Toronto based studio, with members all over the world contributing in their spare time.


Innovative MMORTS Approach
  • Wage war with neighboring regions or complete countless hours of quests as you unveil the dark secrets of Terria while managing a persistent kingdom and economy with thousands of other players. Socialize, trade, forge alliances and - best of all - battle against other players across the world, defeat their armies, and burn their towns!
Multiple Games Modes
  • Two additional singleplayer modes - including open-ended World Conquest mode - Kingdom Wars, and content-packed single-player Skirmish mode with both Lay Siege and Castle Defense maps - guaranteed to satisfy players of various tastes and gameplay styles.
Stunning Siege Combat
  • User-friendly Siege-oriented gameplay adds a whole new dimension to the battlefield as you ram the enemy gate, scale the walls, and place automated defensive systems, such as: stone tippers, boiling oil, and wall-mounted catapults.
Three Distinct Races & Styles of Gameplay
  • Dawn of Fantasy features three distinct civilizations: Elves, Orcs and Men, presenting a unique approach to these iconic races with three distinct styles of gameplay. Each race is complete with its own lore, language, world region and terrain, dozens of distinct units and buildings, hundreds of unique technologies, and each even has a different approach to economy and building style.
Fully 3D Dynamic World Map
  • Travel the MMORTS world using a beautifully-designed 3D World Map featuring scale replicas of all the NPC strongholds, quest areas, and the player's homeland.
Original Base Building Approach
  • Each player’s Stronghold features hundreds of buildings that look and behave like a City-Simulation game, but without any micro-management, giving the player more time to spend on the battlefield. In addition each race offers a different approach to building strongholds.
Complex Economic Model with Corpse Looting
  • Combines the complexity of nearly a dozen gathering possibilities, different for each race, with automated simplicity, allowing players the options to micromanage their economy, or leave it to run itself in times of war.
Realistic Weather and Season Change
  • The gaming world comes alive as you build and battle during winter or summer months, as you push your armies through heavy rain or snow storms. Your economy significantly changes from summer to winter, when different strategic options are available during different times of day and severe weather makes certain units useless.

What the page doesn't actually tell you, something that I was stung by, is the presence of a real life cash shop in the game (where you can buy one of the strongest units in the game, dragons for instance, as well as various "pay-to-win" instances)

As such I would recommend some further research into this game before purchasing.

Edit: This may no longer be true as per my post on the comments section of this original post.

Graphics issues, and you have to sign up with another website to play it. It used to be a "pay to win" game, but they changed that.

It's a great concept and the idea of the game is interesting, but don't expect to engange in many PvP battles, more so it's rare when someone tries to attack your castle, which hasn't happened yet.

Your Troops fight in a squad and can actually level up and you get to chose from several different strenghs, such as how hard they hit and how much damange they can take. If you loose a sqaud of high level soilders it's not the end of the world but you feel bad.

The game is almost too slow to start, but after 5-6 hours you start to see the gold coming in. You might have read it's "pay to win". You can spend cash for crowns which buy's you the special units or upgrades, yet after you get established it's easy to build a bank of crowns. Your gold even starts to overflow to the point where a good portion of the time your lugging your troops around from town to town selling goods.

Whatever race you chose to play isn't a total lock, you can still buy units from the other races. One of the key factors is collecting your loot off of dead bodies, I strongly recomand getting Female Wardens from the elf race because you can simply select their duty to collect loot and they do it fast compared to human peasents.

The AI isn't great. They are going to attack is how they are going to attack. Generally they don't engage you till you engage them. If they try to flank it's a pre-determined before the game even starts. The AI doesn't adjust to the battlefield and what is going on. The AI will flank when basically you already broke the line.

Archers and Crossbow men are generally a strong staple of castle RTS'. They aren't effective. When you see 60-80 Archers on a castle ridge after a few times it doesn't make you turn your soilders around.

The big draw back besides the lack of PvP fights, which when they do happen are very laggy is the overall Missions of the game. Basically it's fighting a small group of soilders, or laying into a castle. Most of the missions are putting down rebel armies of peasents.

The developer has been putting out patches, but the game isn't new, so I'm not sure what the future holds in stock. If they make a second one, I think they will get the game right.

I enjoyed my time with the game, but with no real challange and a weak storyline that actually may not have a ending , it's hard to say "Yes" or "No" to the game. However, if your looking to play a RTS game and can't find one I would give it a shot, it did provide me several hours of gaming.

** Developers removed the buying of premium currency in the last patch. now it is only availble through quests.**


Game plays similar to total war. Are a few bugs that tend to occur with each patch that take time to get fixed.
The multiplayer and persitant aspect of DoF adds a new and more refreshing element into the genre. Managing your kingdom is just as fun as battling players and NPCs.

Take time to compare the negative and positive reviews. Take game time played into consideration.
It took me a good 4 hours before I finally got hooked. That time was spent learning the ins and outs of the game due to me not having played strategy games in eons.

Is it the perfect game? no.

Is it a fun game? Yes.

Should you buy it? Yes, especially since it is always on sale it seems.

With sloppy graphics, preview images that make the game appear to be more than it actually is (mostly quality-wise,) and a tutorial system that is not intuitive at all, I would be hard-pressed to recommend this game.
