Destructive Creations have just brought their gory historical RTS Ancestors Legacy to PS4 and Xbox One. A PS4 retail version with bonus material will be releasing later this year as well.
The game originally released last year for PC, and is currently available on Steam and GOG. Players can take control of Germans, Slavs, Anglo-Saxons, and Vikings across a variety of historic battles throughout the Middle Ages. The game places an emphasis on squad-based tactics as you raid, pillage, and conquer your enemies. You can check out a trailer above.
Here’s a rundown of the game:
Ancestors Legacy is a history-inspired, real-time strategy game influenced by historical events in the Middle Ages. The game combines resource management and base building with large-scale, squad-based battles across vast battlefields, all rendered in superb detail with Unreal Engine 4. Experience medieval bloodshed like never before thanks to the cinematic action camera that puts you right in the middle of the battle at the press of a button.
Take command of your army as you storm through medieval Europe in an extensive series of campaigns. Choosing one of the four available nations – Viking, Anglo-Saxon, German, or Slav – you will be tasked with more than just conquering, raiding, and pillaging enemy camps, villages, and towns. Only by utilizing the full range of available tactical options, taking strategic advantage of the environment, and managing your temporary bases and settlements will you emerge victorious.
