What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Mandate Eternal has always been a community initiative, there has been countless iterations of our vision for this game. We want to offer the best Chinese grand strategy game there could possibly be. This requires countless testing, feedback and alterations. We believe Early Access is our gateway to it.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Mandate Eternal will stay in Early Access as long as it needs to be. However, we certainly didn't intend it to stay in such a limbo forever. Mandate Eternal will last in Early Access for around half a year, we believe by that time, our game is polished enough for official release.”

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

“There will be changes in terms of overall polish of the game. Performance and stability is also extremely important and we believe this requires continuous testing and fixing, this is a major difference as we do expect technical issues to occur for the Early Access version of our game. Based on player feedback, we may also expect partial or complete change for certain aspects of our gameplay loop and mechanic.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Beginning from the first Early Access version, Mandate Eternal will include a fully playable and complete RTS system (including procedural terrains and all unit types), a working economic system, political system, tech system, war system, naval system and population system.”

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

“Pricing will not change after Early Access.”

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

“We have a robust community feedback and support team, with multiple platforms to engage upon, we will take every feedback and evaluate it with our team. The community's opinion ultimately shapes what this game will become.

We will actively engage with our community on Discord, Steam Community, QQ and Afdian, more information will be posted later.”

About This Game

Mandate Eternal is a grand strategy game that focuses around the Ming Dynasty of China and events that occurred in Eurasia during the reign of Ming and potentially extending to the late 18th century. The fall of the Mongol Yuan led to the rise of the Ming Dynasty, with it a new era begins for China and Asia.

The game begins immediately after the Tumu Crisis of 1449, where the numerically superior Ming army suffered major defeats against the Mongolians. The fate of the empire is uncertain, and this is where your journey begins. Build and lead your army personally in conquests against foreign foes. Utilize the rich and detailed economic system to obtain wealth from within. Navigate through the most sophisticated political dealings and make decisions in the court that would have profound impacts across the nation. Enact major reforms that may determine the course of your country. Progress and sail around the globe, or seal your kingdom from the outside world. The choice is yours to make, may your Mandate be Eternal.


Full-fledged 1:1 scaled RTS
Mandate Eternal is an RTS game inside a grand strategy game, every battle that occurs on the map is no longer simply icons and numbers, you may lead your army personally in a 1:1 scaled battle against your enemy. Command tens of thousands of troops on a dynamic procedurally generated terrain that realistically reflects the geography of the battle. The possibilities are endless.

Unparalleled economic simulation
We invited real economists to design our economic system, from the individual regions of local markets, to the nationwide trade and beyond, the economy is a cornerstone of how your country will shape out to be. You can inspect the market, production and population of every single region, and also enact provincial or national laws to modify it.

Unique and highly flavored political system
Even as the emperor of all of China, the sheer size of the imperial court and bureaucracies across the nation makes politics no easier. Interact with ministers, factions and all sorts of court dealings to secure your reign, and rule your country as you wish.

Next-gen simulation performance
Mandate Eternal is fully optimized and ready for the modern computer. Our game runs entirely multi-threaded, extensively using both the GPU and CPU for maximal computation, and a performance by default Entity Component game architecture. It allows us to compute tens of thousands of unique populations, markets, tech, and presenting tens of thousands of soldiers in our RTS game like never before.

Detailed and rich historic recreation
Our game is deeply historic, or ahistoric. The game is filled with rich and carefully crafted events, stories and historical elements that truly embodies the Ming Dynasty.
