Eschborn, July 26, 2013:
Citadels invites fans of real-time strategy games and medieval sagas to pick
sides: starting today, you decide whether to join the forces of good or evil and
rewrite the entire Arthurian legend in the process. The game is available on
Steam as a downloadable PC game, and as well as in a boxed retail version for €
39.99, $ 39.99, £ 37.99.
Citadels contains multiple campaigns that put players into one of two roles:
either a member of King Arthur's entourage as he enters into the decisive battle
against his archenemy, or as a collaborator of Mordred and his allies in their
attempts to subjugate the kingdom. The players can take advantage of powerful
castles, moats and defensive structures, as well as well-equipped armies and
powerful siege weapons. Additional support in battle comes through the
historical characters as well: those aligning themselves with King Arthur can
secure the aid of Merlin, the legendary magician and royal advisor. He provides
a significant starting bonus for any scenario.
Those who cast their lots with Mordred and his allies, by contrast, can earn the
services of King Guthrum - a fearsome warrior who supports the troops where the
battle rages thickest.
