MOSCOW - September 14, 2009 -
Leading Eastern and Central European publisher, 1C Company, announced today the
development of the first title in a new series of strategy games to be released
under the Real Warfare label - Real Warfare: 1242.
Russia during the XIII century was a huge state, much larger than any other
European country. Split by internal conflicts, and yet standing strong against
numerous outer threats, it was attacked by the infamous Mongol Horde. They came
suddenly and pierced through the country like a blazing arrow. The native people
fought valiantly, led by a fierce warrior and prince, Prince Alexander Nevsky.
Real Warfare: 1242, is a realistic real-time strategy game based on authentic
historic events. It invites you to experience the glorious times of princes,
knights and vast battles. The player's goal is to direct Alexander Nevsky
through meticulously recreated historic battlegrounds and achieve the greatest
of victories by repelling the attacks of Teutonic and Swedish knights, bringing
Lithuania to peace and eliminating every single invader in 1242.
