Is this the dawning of a new medieval age?



One of the main concepts behind the development of Conqueror’s Blade has been to ask a bunch of “what if” questions? Not specifically as to who might’ve emerged victorious had the armies of Harold Godwinson and Zhu Yuanzhang ever met on the field of battle, but more along the lines of how neat would it have been if the most iconic medieval weapons, armor and tactics from east, west - and all points in-between - actually clashed. The answer to which, of course, is "pretty neat"!

Why is it neat? Well, many of us are aware of the relative superiority of English archers, the versatility of the Mamluks and the martial process of Samurai, but because there was no historical arena in which the best of the best could spar, the only means we have to decide such matters is through computer games. Sadly, while there have been a good few over the years that have allowed civilizations to duke it out from on high, battlefield granularity and verisimilitude have rarely seemed a priority.

That's not to say liberties shouldn't be taken when gameplay is king. In setting Conqueror's Blade on a world whose territories and resources have been seeded to facilitate war above peace, and by allowing warlords to take their units from whatever unspecified historical nation they wish, Booming Games have set out to build a compelling sandbox arena ahead of one that's historically accurate. Conqueror's Blade isn’t on a mission to decide the best historical units per se, but to reward the players that can assemble and deploy the most successful combination of units and tactics - one that it's not been possible to assemble on such a range of scales before.



What's perhaps most exciting of all is how broad the selection of units and weapon could one day become. At launch, Conqueror's Blade will feature an impressive array of medieval tech, but only a relative few cultures and civilizations have inspired the game's units thus far. There are plenty of obscure war machines still to be reproduced and dozens of iconic units still to be represented. It's likely that not all of them will find their way into the game, not because there's only so many that can be recreated, but because much depends on what happens next.

Unlike the various feudal ages from which Conqueror's Blade draws, the history of the game has yet to be written and how the game is played will ultimately decide how it expands - inexorably leading to the biggest “what if” of all: What if together we move beyond mash-up and form a new and distinct medieval age, possibly with its own units and technologies evolving as a consequence of player agency? Though it may take us closer to the realm of fantasy than reality, it’s a pretty neat thought as we all strain at the leash to get conquering. One thing’s for sure, the past is far from certain!

Cohesion, communication and the importance of forward-planning



Imagine there are two warlords going at each other toe-to-toe on the battlefield. Normally, in a game where honor is a virtue and battles are won and lost on skill alone, we’d predict the most experienced of them to win the fight, but in Conqueror’s Blade there are numerous overlapping factors to consider: Weapon and armor quality, proper use of abilities, timing, environment, movement and blind luck are just some that spring to mind. With Conqueror’s Blade also being something of an open arena, there are also other players to consider. The appearance of a third combatant to our little scenario - which should always be anticipated, by the way - would be expected to tip the balance of power in favor of the two allies. However, if he or she knows what they’re up against and are capable of, the lone warlord should never be underestimated (as some of your Best Bits attest). 

Let’s rewind our imaginary skirmish to the start of the Siege Battle, where 15 disparate warlords who barely know one another are ranged against 15 organized warriors - a small core of which are members of the same House. While the thrown-together defenders have imposing battlements on their side, the attackers have little things called a battle plan; in the pre-battle setup phase they’ve selected troops that complement one another, and via the power of chat have communicated where and when to focus their attacks. Because both teams contain skilled individuals the battle won’t be easy for either side, but, as seasoned multiplayers will know, it’s likely to end up that the more organized attacking team will claim victory - and enjoy the spoils.



Taken a stage further, Territory Wars are campaigns fought between houses and alliances and thus being organized is almost a prerequisite for taking part. However, just showing up at the right time and fighting supremely well as part of a well-drilled team isn’t always going to be enough. Prior to engaging the enemy, supplies and equipment have to be acquired and issued to the correct units, while during the ensuing war both sides have to be ready to take advantage of any opportunities to counter the other. Leadership is a huge factor and those with an appreciation for logistics will know how crucial the local economy and infrastructure are to a sustained campaign. In a duel, you must know your own limits, in a skirmish those of your units as well, but in a war, you must know your entire domain, the resources you can call on and, just as crucially, when they might be available. It’s no use starting a war if you can’t follow it through to the bitter end

So you see, while the eternal battle between quantity versus quality will forever hang in the balance, the deciding factor in any engagement - whether it’s fisticuffs between the last warlords standing, or an epic world-wide war for domination - will be one side’s preparedness over the other. In the wars of history, it has always been thus and you should expect the same of Conqueror's Blade (with a just a hint of luck on the side, for good measure).

About This Game


Lead your armies in the conquest of a persistent open world in this spectacular free-to-play multiplayer game of action and tactics, one that seamlessly combines visceral medieval combat with immersive tactical command over the men and machinery of war.

Conqueror’s Blade’s innovative hybrid of action and tactical gameplay challenges players with becoming the ultimate war general by forming alliances with other leaders, equip period-accurate armor and field iconic units from both Western and Eastern civilizations such as the Swiss Halberdiers, Iron Buddhas, Mongol mounted archers and Samurai.



Select one of the many classes and dive into the heat of battle to tip the scales of the war in your favor! Use the pros of each class to their fullest and gain an advantage over your opponents. Players choose from ten commanders, each with their own fighting style and weaponry. Can a Japanese nodachi withstand a clash against a Swiss halberd, and will be a Hospitaller’s lance be swift enough to charge a recurved Mongol bow? Answers to centuries-old questions will be finally settled on the field of battle.



Form your own armies from the world's best units. Bring your cavalry down upon the enemy! Unleash heavy armored warriors! Make your call! Units' special abilities and various formations allow for unlimited tactical maneuvers! The players are the vanguard; personally, protecting the battering rams while under fire from death-dealing arrows - all while looking to exploit an overextended enemy and secure the choke points required to emerge victorious.



Take part in massive fortress sieges. Pick the perfect moment to unleash heavy siege weapons, smash the enemy's defenses, and win! With commanders perched at ramparts and enormous trebuchets hurling burning boulders at the battling armies, Conqueror’s Blade delivers unforgettable battlescapes and a visceral medieval combat experience. With more than 1000 units charging the enemy at the same time, 30 commanders and their wisely chosen, battle-hardened troops will face off in attempts to outmaneuver the opposition.



Form valuable alliances, crush the enemy, and extend your influence all over the world. Players explore the fictional, mysterious heart-shaped continent for as far as their army can take them -- and where skirmishes over resources are inevitable. A key task for player guilds is how to organize their commanders and cooperatively plot to conquer each region, all while building and upgrading infrastructure and recruiting for the armies that will protect the spoils of war.



Go on to become, not only the greatest general, but a great ruler! Turn your castle into an impregnable bastion at the heart of your kingdom.



Kingdoms will wither and die without healthy trade, so set up your economy with an eye on the markets and diplomatic options open: it makes all the difference between a house and an empire! Trade coins and items at the Auction House, buy basic equipment from Merchants, or take risks on the Black Market to sell off rare materials for silver or gold.
