In Dawn of Fantasy's second developer diary, Assistant Producer and Lead Writer Gordon Farrell is back to guide viewers through another game mode -- this time with the help of Arielle Parkas, Assistant Voice-Over Director and Voice Actor for several elven characters. The captivating duo takes players through Dawn of Fantasy's innovative 'Kingdom Wars' game mode.
Kingdom Wars is an exclusively single-player Conquer-the-World style campaign mode with a mix of Skirmish and MMORTS gameplay elements to create a new, action-packed experience. This game mode takes the epic siege warfare, continuous army progression, army construction, and World Map from the massively multiplayer "Online Kingdom" mode and pairs it with an intelligent and aggressive AI, improved diplomacy features, and the ability to control conquered strongholds.
At the same time, "Kingdom Wars" leaves out select "Online Kingdom" mode elements including city construction, advanced economic micromanagement, and story-driven quests to promote fast-paced action at every turn.
While introducing the "Kingdom Wars" mode, Gordon and Arielle detail key elements including World Map interaction, stronghold and economic management specific to KW, diplomacy, army camps, and epic stronghold sieges. The pair discusses some of their favorite features, with their competing biases thrown in for good measure. Viewers are in for a definite treat, as Gordon and Arielle take players to exotic locations never-before-seen in video, such as the dwarven mines where the player can stock up on gold reserves.
The three great realms of Mythador await a unifying leader... Will you step up to the challenge? Stay tuned for the third developer diary, which will show off Dawn of Fantasy's premier game mode, the story-driven massively multiplayer "Online Kingdom" campaign!
