Today, publisher MY.GAMES and developer Booming Games have announced that their medieval free-to-play tactical MMO, Conqueror’s Blade, has been released in open beta for free. Starting today, players will be able to register on cb.my.com and give the game a try.
“We are thrilled to finally open the gates to Conqueror’s Blade massive medieval universe and release it to all aspiring warlords to experience for free,” said Petr Lagun, Producer at MY.GAMES. “It’s exciting and uncharted territory for us, and we’ll be paying very close attention to your feedback as we work on and implement new design decisions. Booming Games has created a rich landscape just waiting to be claimed and we can’t wait to see the bonds and rivalries that our community will create to shape it. Be it through epic siege wars or the formation of large houses, there is so much for players to discover, build, defend and destroy in the name of conquest.”
Players will be able to engage in 15 vs 15 siege battles where they will issue orders to soldiers in real-time, using weapons such as a trebuchets (the superior siege weapon), along with tactics and brute force to overwhelm the enemy and claim victory on the field of battle. To do so, players will create and customize their own conquerors by specializing in 10 separate weapons classes with their own special abilities, combat styles, and strengths and weaknesses. When done, players can mount their horse and command their army from the front of the battlelines.
Conqueror’s Blade has a player-driven ecosystem, where players can contribute to a global community of warlords from around the world. They will be able to create alliances by forming or joining houses, take and secure territory and the loot, and work together in order to shape the world in their image. Players can (and will) spread their influence over their own domain, gathering resources and initiating trade to help build and maintain their own castles and armies.
