Tower Five announced that their action-strategy game Lornsword Winter Chronicle will launch on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One this fall.
Originally released on Steam Early Access this past May, Lornsword Winter Chronicle combines real-time strategy gameplay with a narrative that is focused on immersing the player in this world. The story follows Corun, a young Lornknihgt who has been placed in command of the fortified town of Tulza. During gameplay, players will be able to explore the world around them that usually has them braving the land’s harsh environments as they build their army and military strength. In order to survive, you’ll have to erect bases, gather food, and find ways to earn money.
Lornsword Winter Chronicle’s battle system has the troops rush into battle to give their lives to protect the town. Payers can view the battles in real-time as their forces hopefully overpower the enemy. The game also features drop-in local co-op where players can bring a friend to fight off intruders and split up the duties.
“We at Tower Five love real-time strategy games, yet the genre has struggled to make the move to consoles, as gamepad controls were ill-equipped for many of the genre classics”, said Renaud Charpentier, Game Director at Tower Five. “That’s why we rethought from the ground up how a strategy game would work. Now you have direct control of your Lornknight, while also having to manage resources and command a larger army. It’s a lot to take in, but having to care for your specific avatar and throngs of units ensure that there’s never a dull moment.”
Those looking forward to the game can get their hands on it a little early during a playtest today on Xbox Insider Program beginning at 10 am PT.
