Legends of Eisenwald Knight's Edition

The Knight's Edition contains Legends of Eisenwald OST and artbook.

About This Game

Legends of Eisenwald is an adventure game with tactical battles, RPG and strategy elements. Take the lead of a small feudal army and try to defend your right to survive in this ruthless medieval world.

The mysterious lands of old Germany are waiting for you - it's a land where the superstitions of the time have come to life. This isn’t a fantasy game. There are no elves or dragons here. There are only people - and their passions, sins and fears that often take a tangible form. Which path will you choose? Live according to your conscience? Or live by power and might? Or will you live by justice? And what is your justice, really?

Game features

  • A unique and dynamic combat system - each move is also an attack
  • The ability to individually equip *each* fighter in your army
  • A large selection of weapons, spells and abilities, including the option to use mounted units
  • Diverse upgrade trees, and each unit level up provides cosmetic changes
  • An intriguing non-linear story
  • A distinctive game world without common fantasy cliches
  • Over 50 hours of gameplay within the game. A main campaign consisting of eight chapters plus two additional scenarios.
  • A beautiful symphonic soundtrack in a medieval style
  • An accompanying Scenario Editor with the full set of developer tools

French version is missing some of the descriptions translation. They will be added in a few days.

A mix of King's Bounty and Disciples set in (more or less) medieval Germany.

The first impression can be somewhat off-putting, because the graphics and animations look simple and feel outdated for at least 5 years. Nevertheless, once you get past it and get into your first quests, the engine doesn't really matter anymore. After the tutorial map the story picks up quickly and the first full size campaign map is very entertaining.

If you enjoyed Disciples, HOMM or King's Bounty, and you don't mind simple graphics, I would definitely recommend this game.

Bonus points for including an excellent Belarusian translation!

If you loved the early HOMM and old school RPG games that rely heavily on text, then Legends of Eisenwald may be something you will enjoy. The game is set in Medieval times where myths, legends, and superstition abound. You will spend time listening to tales at the local tavern. It's best to listen closely since they may very well save your party from trouble down the road. You won't find any trolls or goblins during your travels however expect plenty of Intrigue, lust, and betrayal.

This isn't a fast paced game. It's best enjoyed with a pot of hot coffee nearby and plenty of free time to get lost in the lore. Some quests may be difficult if you need to rely on twinkling sparkles to indicate where a quest objective is. Online guides may be hard to find if you truly become stumped on a quest.

LoE is more linear than I had expected. You can (unfortunately) skip large portions of game play if you want to power your way to the chapter's finish. Doing so would defeat the purpose of the game. There are no cut-scenes, voice over's, or other fluff. The time and effort of the developers was clearly spent on creating an experience that should fully immerse veteran RPGers.

Scale of 1 to 10
Game play - 8 ( A shame that party members are lost from chapter to chapter)
Game stability - 7 (some quirky movement areas and random crashes)
Music - 10 (Simply fantastic and perfect for the game)
Graphics - 8 (on highest settings game looks great)
Atmosphere / immersion factor - 10 (The main quest line is average to be honest however take your time and read everything. It's the tales and stories you hear at the Pubs that make the game fun)

Bottom line, for $25 you can purchase a solid fun game that will scratch that itch for some old school RPG fun.

An extremelly successful spiritual sequel to the Disciples series, with a lot of original twists and touches. For an apparently tiny Eastern European studio these guys produced a high-quality product, well balanced and almost without any bugs or annoyances. An absolute must for lovers of the "HOMAM-like" turn-based strategy genre.

This is the first and only Early Access game I have backed so far, but it really has left me with a high standard mark that I doubt will be met by all the other projects I back in the future.

The game is amazing, people wouldn't think such a feat could be done with as little funding as this project had. The battlefield in this game offers a variety that might be overlooked at first glance, but it's that what makes it much better than HoMM or King's Bounty, at least in my eyes.

The battles in the games previously mentioned tend to become dull and repetitive after a while, and I grow tired of the game and don't touch it for a long while. But in the case of this game, the battles are always quick-paced and focused. You can't just fiddle around wasting turns, you have to move and so does your opponent. Planning before the battle is as important as the fight itself.

And that's just talking about how the fights go. The music is simply wonderful and the art is very well-polished. Still, it's a turn-based combat game, so it's a niche game on its own, but for a cautious turn-based player such as myself, this game has delivered much more than it promised.
