The second game in the Kingdom Under Fire series, Kingdom Under Fire: The Crusaders was a unique blend of real-time strategy and hack-and-slash gameplay. Set in a high-fantasy world where two factions—the humans and forces of darkness—are at war over sacred ground. Build your squads of troops and upgrade them with weapons, armor, and magical abilities to gain a strategic advantage against your enemies. Even take control of your hero characters personally to fight in the thick of battle yourself. 

Originally developed by Korean studio Phantagram, after nearly 16 years, The Crusaders returns in 2020 with a brand new port by developer Blueside. This PC port contains full controller support, along with mouse & keyboard support and widescreen HD. This cult classic finally comes home to a wider audience.
