War of Legends takes a solid, familiar MMORTS format and re-casts it in ancient China. Players begin with a single city and must develop it into the hub of a mighty empire. The Asian setting provides a lushly beautiful change from common swords and sorcery titles, while an array of tasks give players the chance to build their empires via environmental conflict. The game also features plenty of PVP combat, though, so more militaristic players will certainly be able to sate their taste for battle.
Automated combat puts the focus on building an empire, researching technologies and exploring new territories. For players who prefer a more hands-on combat experience, War of Legends offers this as well; click a button and take control of an army on the battlefield or let the skirmish play out at a distance. The game’s selection of troops is varied enough to provide strategic opportunities, but limited enough to feel realistic. Halberdiers, horsemen, charioteers and archers give players options for ranged combat, strong melee defense and rapid strikes.
Food, stone, wood and copper govern how quickly a city or an army may be built. Jagex offers players the opportunity to earn a fifth resource, gold, via cash purchase or through PVE tasks. War of Legends is free to play, but dedicated players save up their gold for important combat bonuses.War of Legends,
