What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Early Access gives the community the ability to provide feedback to us during the development process. Since this is an adaptation of our board game, we’re looking for Ars Victor veterans to help us create a fun video game version that stays true to the original. We’re also striving to create a game that is easily accessible to newcomers but also deep enough to keep the most battle-hardened Ars Victor commander entertained. We also wanted to get the game into the hands of players as soon as possible.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Less than 6 months. This estimate is based on how long it will take to implement a specific list of features we want to see added to the game while leaving some time for quashing bugs. No one can predict the future anymore but this is our best estimate at this time. We will keep the community updated frequently throughout the development process and will let you know if any delays arise.”

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

“The full version of the game will include a full single-player battle mode, single-player roguelike campaign, and a basic multiplayer system. We will also be introducing an additional 12-unit army, the Ancient Hegemony. After release our focus will be on implementing a few multiplayer modes into the existing game. More details to come later on multiplayer modes.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Currently you can play single player games against the AI picking from a list of a dozen pre-prepared missions fully configured with armies and map tile layouts. There is also a very basic multiplayer system that allows players to play each other using missions from the single player system.

Check out the alpha branch under the beta tab for the latest updates--we’re pushing new builds several times a week now.”

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

“We will be increasing the price after Early Access ends. We’ll be ending Early Access when we feel we have a working game that has our base features included: 2 single player modes including a full roguelike campaign mode, and the basic multiplayer mode from Early Access.”

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

“The Ars Victor Community is the most important part of the development process! We’re building this game for veteran ars victor players as well as for newcomers. We will constantly be soliciting feedback from players as we ramp up to beta releases and eventually full launch. Please check out the Discussions section for updates and discussions on upcoming improvements and features.”

About This Game

Ars Victor is a fast-paced, tense, two-player board game of tactical combat. You command a furious fighting force OF THE FUTURE against a ferocious foe. Recruit your armies. Scout out a unique map. Draw a hand of Command Cards. Deploy your Vanguard. The battle is joined!

To win, you must reduce your enemy’s Glory to zero before they do the same to you. Your successes on the battlefield chip away at your enemy’s Glory. It never goes up, only down; so it’s always a tense, back-and-forth race to the bottom.

Your turn is simple: play a Command Card to activate one or more of your units. Move them across the battlefield, and try to slaughter the enemy. In the process, try to hold on to the three Capture Points in the middle of the board, and keep your Headquarters alive.

Combat is resolved in a single roll of multiple colored dice. Dice quantity and color can be affected by terrain, as well as unit Special Abilities. Simple icons on the dice show the results
