What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Sovereignty is grand and ambitious…and we need your help!

It all started three years ago with a small team of passionate developers who set out to create a rich and unique campaign world. Become the ruler of one of 34 unique realms. Raise armies, conduct diplomacy, research powerful spells, expand your economy…conquer.
But that was just the beginning.

Over time, the team looked to the horizon and said, “We want more.” A separate tactical battle system was added, Heroes were created and the Resource system was re-imagined .
Now it’s the community’s turn.

It is your chance to get in early on Sovereignty and make a real impact on specific features you would like to see in the game. We will be here to listen and act on your feedback.
Everything, from the gorgeous artwork, to the period music, to the rich interplay of systems was created by a small group dedicated to a single goal: to create an epic fantasy strategy game. Now it’s your turn.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“While we are not yet in a position to announce a final release date, we are committed to supporting Early Access through the next year. A lot can be done in that time, and we are excited to have this opportunity to work closely with the community.”

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

“There are loads of things we are planning to add to the game. Overall game features, such as a wide support for modders and a random event system to improve overall game experience. We are also looking at adding specific things in game, such as building and upgrading forts, a bigger and more integrated foreign affairs system, both at a UI and map level.

We are also looking at adding more coherence in art, with better integrated UI and higher quality terrain textures and units.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is in a true beta stage. It means it can be played from start to finish and all main features are working and integrated. What is missing is the overall balance and key features to make the game experience more compelling and immersive. Exactly the areas where we are asking the help of the players.”

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

“Sovereignty is truly massive, but we are definitely looking at encouraging players to jump into the program to help us finish it. So we are looking at a $ 24.99 price point for this version and looking at increasing it at release.”

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

“That is entirely the reason why we are looking at running the Early Access. The game requires the help of the community to be finished and make sure it is the game we initially thought it was going to be. It’s a humongous project we need the fans to help us finish. We will definitely be looking at the community feedback as it is essential for us. Every detailed feedback and comment about a feature will be reviewed internally and then prioritized in the development process. Of course we will be reaching out to the community with a constant presence in the forums. What is working well? What could be improved? And most important of all, what new ideas are suggested.”

“Though still in Early Access, Sovereignty: Crown of Kings is showing a lot of good things”

About This Game

The old Empire is crumbling. Younger hungrier realms wait like vultures for their chance to pick at the carcass. Thus begins the grand campaign of Sovereignty.

Rule your realm wisely and decisively. Play as the Boruvian Empire and try to recapture former Imperial glories. Or play any of 34 other realms, each with their own rich history, culture and play-style.

Play as different cultures and races: Humans, Orcs, Elves, Dwarves and Undead. Guide your people to glory and prosperity. The challenges you are going to face are intimately linked to the faction you select and the geography of your location in the world. Whether you build a wealthy kingdom or become a famous conqueror, your subjects will expect you to make the right diplomatic and economic decisions. Do you covet a precious resource produced by your neighbor? Try sending an agent to negotiate a trade deal… or your army to seize this key region.

Spies, treaties and solid alliances can prove powerful weapons. But when words fail, answer with steel and blood. Raise mighty armies. Recruit legendary heroes. Research powerful spells. And if you’re ready to get your hands dirty, you can even take direct command of your troops on the battlefield in the tactical mode!
By wisely combining soft and hard power, you too can realize your ambitions and reign supreme over all others.

Are you ready to plant your flag in Sovereignty?
