20% LAUNCH DISCOUNT AVAILABLE IN FIRST WEEK
SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA, TUESDAY 18 MAY 2021: Koch Media and Black Eye Games are pleased to announce that Siege Survival: Gloria Victis is now available on Steam, Epic and GOG with a RRP of $35.95 and a launch discount of 20% off for the first week.
The medieval survival management strategy game tells the story of how a humble band of civilians, trapped by a besieging army in the small keep of the city, attempts to keep the last defending troops equipped – and the survivors alive – as they wait for a desperately needed relief force to end their suffering.
Build your base, craft supplies, scavenge the fallen city for resources and carefully manage your survivors to keep them alive and able to support the last remaining troops standing between you and the invading barbarians.
A launch trailer has also been released, which you can check out here.
A recently updated demo that allows users to experience the first seven days of the campaign that can be accessed via Steam: https://store.steampowered.com/app/1167140/Siege_Survival_Gloria_Victis/
There are three core elements to the game:
- Crafting & resource management: You need better weapons, a roof over your head, hot food and all the other trappings that just existing entail; and the only way you’ll get these is if you and your team craft them. But resources are scarce and you’ll need to manage them wisely to make it through in one piece.
- Scavenging: Venturing out from the safety of your keep, you have to explore the ransacked city at night to collect raw materials, abandoned goods and weapons that you need to survive and hold out long enough for the reinforcements to arrive. Unlock new routes to various districts of the city, recruit more survivors and avoid enemy soldiers patrolling at night. If you don’t make it back by dawn, you’re as good as dead.
- Surviving the siege: Defending what’s left of your city are a few tired troops in dire need of arrows, weapons, and armour; along with treatment for the wounded. You need to keep this squad supplied and supported in every way possible ahead of their battles every few days; otherwise, the enemy will storm the keep. Although you don’t participate in the fighting directly, the fate of the city lies in your hands.
All this is woven into a grim narrative with numerous moral dilemmas, forcing the player to regularly make tough decisions as they scavenge the city of Edring and desperately try to save it and themselves from impending doom. Sustain the troops or keep the civilians alive? Only the player can decide.
