What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Compared with the last Early Access, this time we have upgraded many features, including UI, unit balance, Commander Skills, etc. We still hope that community and players involve into game development to help us go further. We have had a specific plan for the release, and we are developing a game version for mobile devices. We won’t mark it as Full Version this time until players can battle against each on multiple platforms (e.g. PC, iOS, Android, etc.). Please notice that all your Open Beta progress this time will be saved.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Since we aim to make Art of War: Red Tides a multiplayer strategy game that allows different teams to battle against each other on multiple platforms, and all the players around the world can play the game on the same server, we won’t change the state until then.”

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

“Our dev team will continue to upgrade the game based on the plan. The biggest difference between the Early Access and the Full Version is that the latter covers more platforms, including PC, iOS, Android, etc. Also, the game balance of the Full Version can be compared to that of the eSports game.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current Early Access has been tested twice by a limited number of players. Compared with the last Open Beta, the stability and balance of the game have been improved a lot, and we have also optimized unit mechanism, A.I. and other aspects. We are sure that this time, player experience will be much better. On the other hand, however, we still need advice and opinions from community and players to make the game better.”

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

“No. Art of War: Red Tides will adopt ‘free download + in-game purchase’ pattern. Even if the state is changed from Early Access to the Full Version, this pattern will not change, nor will the price of items in the store.
Besides, the in-game store will sell neither exclusive items that could influence the match, nor in-game currencies.”

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

“The optimization of a game always needs players’ participation and feedback. This is especially true for a multiplayer strategy game. We involved communities and players in two ways:
  • In the past half a year, our dev team improved the data-analyzing system which will automatically analyze player behavior to guarantee their basic game experience.
  • We will communicate with players actively. We will post on social platforms such as Facebook and Twitter to ask for players’ opinions and advice. We also plan to post helpful feedback in community and forums to ask for help.
We believe that these plans can make our game better.”

About This Game

Game mechanics:
It is as simple as follows
  • Set troop: select a race, choose ten units under this race to set up your troop and then join the battle.
  • Send troop: you have 12 seconds to prepare during each wave, and you need to observe the battle, speculate enemy’s intention and then send appropriate types and number of units to the battlefield.
  • Destroy enemy turrets and base: continually overwhelm each enemy, unleash Commander Skills, cooperate with your teammates, pull down their three turrets one by one, and destroy their base.
Simple as the battle is, you will still experience various strategies and tactics in each battle.

Game features:
  • Emphasize teamwork in confronting the enemy
  • Support over 300 units that can fight smart in the fiery battle at the same time
  • Command concisely, play smart, and operate conveniently on different devices
  • With over 120 kinds of units in three races, the game emphasizes Strategic Thinking, the core element reflected in the classic strategy games. It is easy to learn but hard to master.

Monetization:
Art of War: Red Tides will adopt “free download + in-game purchase” pattern, and the in-game store will sell neither exclusive items that could influence the match, nor in-game currencies.

Our heartfelt gratitude goes to:
The developer of the map Desert Strike of StarCraft 2. Without the enlightenment of the Desert Strike, Art of War: Red Tides could never be possible.

The test this time will have no wipe of progress. We will continue to optimize the units balance and other features, so you may find a lot of adjustments in a period. But never ever hesitate to share your opinions and advice with us, as you can help us make the game better.

Look forward to your advice and opinions.
Let’s start our journey, commanders!
