About This Game

Tiger Knight is an epic Action Strategy PVP game that brings vivid, historically accurate detail to large-scale warfare set circa 200 BC. Featuring meticulously researched battle equipment and weaponry, music from renowned Final Fantasy Composer Hitoshi Sakimoto, and delivering high-octane strategic combat - Tiger Knight: Empire War delivers a thrilling gameplay experience that will keep you coming back for more!

In the Early Access phase of the game, players can take control of three of the most powerful armies in Chinese history - the Three Kingdoms. Each army boasts its own strengths and weaknesses, allowing players to choose the forces that best represent their battle strategies. Tiger Knight brings the archers, infantry, cavalry and generals of the Wei, Shu and Wu armies to life using an optimized Unreal3 engine, as well as the PhysX physical engine, Hair Works and advanced action motion capturing. The developers at NetDragon have spared nothing in their attention to historical accuracy, researching existing ancient artifacts to design each weapon and piece of armor available in the game, while using real-life battle equipment to record in-game sound effects.

The game features three distinct modes of play, and will soon expand the selection of armies to include the Romans, as well as many of histories other greatest forces! Join the battlefield today to see why so many players have already fallen in love with Tiger Knight: Empire War!
