Historical RTS “Ancestors Legacy” Gets Free German Teutonic Order Campaign

Destructive Creations and 1C Entertainment have released yet another free campaign for their brutal medieval RTS, Ancestors Legacy.

This latest campaign focuses on the rise of the German Teutonic Order from the perspectives of Konrad von Thierberg and his rival, Herkus Monte. You can check out a trailer for the new campaign above.

Here’s a rundown of the new content:

Learn the story about the origin of the Order of German Knights known as the Teutonic Order. The action itself takes place during the Second Prussian Uprising when the Prussian natives decided to organize themselves against the German occupation.

The story is presented from two perspectives – through an eminent Knight Brother, Konrad von Thierberg and his opponent from the Prussian tribe, the leader of the rebels – Herkus Monte.

The game takes place starting from 1260, when Herkus Monte, after years of studying under the watchful eye of the Teutonic Order in Magdeburg, returns to his native village of Pokarvis. Although initially on the side of the Knights, who educated him and honed his military skills, Herkus soon finds his place alongside his Prussian kinsmen and leads the rebellion against the very same Teutonic Order that he became a part of. The end of the era falls in 1274, when players, commanding the Knights of Teutonic Order as Konrad von Thierberg, will have to break the last bastion of the rebels – the castle of Lidzbark.

Ancestors Legacy is available on Windows PC via Steam and the Humble Store for $34.99. The game will be having a sale and free weekend later this week, on the 30th. Ancestors Legacy will be making its way to Xbox One early next year.
