War of Conquest Early Access Next Week

IronZog LLC announces that War of Conquest will enter Early Access on Steam on September 20th, squeaking out during their summer release window by about 48 hours. They have been putting the open-world strategy game through its paces already with a beta test for Kickstarter backers, and now they are preparing to allow more gamers to help steer it toward its eventual release. Here's word, including details on their prior War of Conquest game that this follows:
War of Conquest is a free-to-play massively multiplayer real-time strategy game that puts the player in control of one nation in a vast fantasy world occupied by thousands of other players’ nations. The goal is to build up the nation’s technological and magical abilities, as well as the player’s skills, in order to compete to capture the mysterious Orbs of Power scattered throughout the landscape. The journey will entail battling over land and resources, developing advances, forging alliances, and constructing and upgrading a wide variety of defensive structures.

The Kickstarter campaign for War of Conquest wrapped up in October 2017 and exceeded its goal by raising $8,698. War of Conquest is a reimagining of an earlier game by IronZog that went by the same name. The original War of Conquest ran from 2002 through 2011, had over 200,000 players and developed a cult following that continues to be a presence on social media years after the game went offline. Many fans of the original came back to support the Kickstarter and have been taking part in beta testing over the past year.

I can usually look past graphics... but damn, that looks like a mobile game... from a Nokia.

"War of Conquest?" Could you have a more generic name?

The next story on Blue's front page is SoulCaliber. Talk about a sublime game name.

Yuck, no kidding. I GET that MMO games need to be ABLE to run on shit machines, as that’s what the majority of the population buys, but that’s what scaleable graphic settings are for. First impressions are everything, and this one looks lazily made.

Yeah, besides looking awful it sounds like a freemium game.
