1C Company Launches Heralded Medieval Strategy Game, Ancestors Legacy, on PC
Inspired by European History, Squad-based Strategic Action Game Puts Players into the Thick of Combat Between Four Nations in Both Single Player Tactical Campaigns and Multiplayer Battles
PRAGUE, May 22, 2018 – 1C Company, a global PC and console games publisher, today announced it has launched the award-winning RTS strategy game, Ancestors Legacy, for PC via Steam. In the squad-based real time strategy game inspired by medieval European history, players can join Vikings, Saxons and other nations in an extensive series of tactical campaigns or challenge their friends in multiplayer battles. The game is available for PC in both standard and Collector’s Edition versions starting today with a 10% launch discount. Ancestors Legacy will also ship on Xbox One and Xbox One X in early 2019.
“Ancestors Legacy is all about having the action-oriented game set within the medieval environment, as close to reality as possible,” said Tomasz Gop, Producer at Destructive Creations. “All four nations are based on history, but also we managed to make them actually feel unique. The final product gives to players a competitive multiplayer side of the game, joined with what I call Role-Playing Strategy (RPS), story-driven single-player campaigns that can be played at a more relaxed pace.”
In Ancestors Legacy, players take command of their armies as they storm through medieval Europe in an extensive series of tactical campaigns inspired by actual historical events. Choosing one of the four available nations—Viking, Anglo-Saxon, German or Slav—players can conquer, raid and pillage enemy camps and towns. But to truly dominate players must be strategic, taking advantage of the full range of tactical options, using the environment to their benefit and properly managing their temporary bases and settlements.
The game combines resource management and base building with large-scale, squad-based battles across vast battlefields, all rendered in rich detail thanks to Unreal Engine 4 technology. Players will experience medieval bloodshed like never before via the cinematic action camera that puts them right in the middle of the battle at the press of a button.
· Extensive single player campaign inspired by historical events featuring four playable nations
· Intense multiplayer battles with multiple modes including Domination (control the most villages to win) and Annihilation (destroy the enemy base camp to win)
· Advanced tactical options combining the use of terrain, experience and morale
· Cinematic battle camera view puts players right in the center of the action
· Outstanding visual fidelity powered by UnrealEngine 4
· Streamlined resource management and village construction
Ancestors Legacy is developed by Destructive Creations and published by 1C Company. The game has been rated ‘M’ for Mature 17+ by the ESRB for Intense Violence, Blood and Gore and Strong Language. The game is available for $44.99 for the standard edition, discounted 10% to $40.49 for the first week of launch.
The game’s digital soundtrack is available for $7.99 and a digital artbook is available for $4.99, both available at a 10% launch discount. True fans can purchase the digital Collector’s Edition featuring the game, the digital artbook and soundtrack at a bundled discount for $52.17.
