What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We are using Early Access to enable you to keep us alive long enough to finish this game. By buying the game while it's not finished we can keep working until it is.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We can't say how much longer it will take till we are at our full version, by a guess would be another 6 months or so”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

Full version is planned to feature:
  • Training/Tutorial
  • Ranks and Competitive Play
  • Level ups / XP
  • Lots of achievements
  • Lobbies with Friends
  • Team objectives game mode
  • More of the other stuff (spells, swords, armor, etc.)
  • More balance and less bugs

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“I'm not going to pretend this game is finished, as you can see from the list of features we are still working on it's going to be a fair amount of time before its called "done".

That said, the game is playable and enjoyable, the fundamentals of combat (albeit sometimes buggy) can currently be experienced by anyone in all it's glory.
If you are someone who needs more than just combat to continue enjoying the game, you may get tired of this fairly quickly”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“After Early Access this game will likely go up in price, so you might invest in it now while it's still a work in progress”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We listen to what our players say. I'm sure many of our community members can already tell you how a feature or fix they have suggested has since been added to the game.

If you join the community you can be assured you will have an impact. We are not your programming slaves here to make any or every idea but we do consider all the ideas we read”

Deathmatch Re-introduced!

With this latest update we're bringing back the much loved deathmatch mode with some new twists!
To streamline the action, players are given two random spells which will re-roll as a new random spell every time they are used. Additionally, special passive upgrades like stealth and shields can be collected from the new power-up points placed in the map.

We think this should make for some frantic fun without any need to get stuck in complicated menus or too much worrying about getting the most optimal build.

Jump in to a quick session of fantasy battle chaos and tell us what you think of the new deathmatch (Solo) mode!

About This Game

Kingdoms Rise is about palpable multiplayer fantasy battle. Select your choice of weapons and abilities and step onto a battlefield where skill alone will decide your fate.

With a multitude of armors, swords, spells, ranged weapons and more you can customize a warrior and a fighting style unique to you.

Kingdoms Rise makes fantasy combat something more than grind a earn level-ups. It's not a means to an end but and end in itself.
The feeling of steel against steel is made solid. Bringing all tension and thrill as knights wield sword and fire against each other.

Read your opponent and try to psych them out in tactical blade dueling.
Wield spells such as fireballs, lightening, hook-shots, invisibility and blinks that will work tightly in tandem with your strengths in swordsmanship.
This game has been build from the beginning to feel palpable, as though you control every muscle and plant every step. You wont watch a knight perform fancy pants maneuvers from simple button presses, instead you step into the very boots of your character and fight with your own finesse.

With deep character customization every fight is unique and every opponent will have a new trick up their sleeve.
Experiment with different combinations and strategies to create a knight with a fighting style unique to you alone.

Players can form parties with friends and fight in competitive modes.
In team games the only limit is your imagination. Your teammates can build themselves into roles such as tanks, damage dealers, supports or any new role you see fit. Think up new strategies, combine spells in interesting ways and achieve victory!

Key Features
  • 360° Directional Melee Sword Fighting System
  • Deep Character Customization
  • Wide Range of Magic spells and abilities to use and combine
  • Create a Party with Friends and fight as a Team
