Warlords IV Goes Gold

Warlords IV: Heroes of Etheria Goes Gold is the press release announcing the completion of the turn-based strategy sequel, which should be appearing on store shelves in October. On a related note, the latest Warlords IV Developer Diary on The Adrenaline Vault has more on the game's development. Here's a bit from the press release:
From the original creators of the acclaimed Warlords series, Warlords IV: Heroes of Etheria is the latest installment in the award-winning series. Set in the troubled land of Etheria, old foes such as Dwarves, Elves, and Orcs have resumed their ancient hostilities and the Undead legions of Lord Bane have returned. The game centers on the actions of your Warlord, who plays a pivotal role in the success or failure of your military efforts. Warlords IV: Heroes of Etheria uses an enhanced version of the Warlords Battlecry II terrain engine to bring the splendidly rendered landscape of Etheria to life. Players will experience for the first time ever the innovative Speed Tactical System (STS) of combat, which speeds up combat and allows unit control of traditional tactical combat systems without micromanagement of movement.

Errm that's the thing, there is no limit whatsoever. You move your armies, build stuff etc, take as long as you want, then end your turn. Then the A.I. makes its moves and it's your turn again.

No time pressure whatsoever...

Anyways, w00t! I want my precious With this and hopefully soon Silent Storm, fall and Winter are saved

bah, same same. Anything with Strategy in it irks me....

Actually anything with a time limit/think fast or die irks me, lol. I don't play well under that kind of pressure. Even FPS games, when they give you a level that has a time limit, I cheat past it everytime.

Guess I'm weird.

>>>Solid. Been waiting... and waiting...<<<

Why wait? There's at least 20 RTS games that go gold every week. I think there's probably at least 543543875 RTS games that went gold this year so far. In fact I think 2 more just went gold in the time it took me to write this post....

I played the demo, it was cool
Still has the "warlords" feel to it.

Though there some things I didn't like, overall I'm optimistic.

It should be great fun to play the game with all the different race combos and strategies.

There's been a demo out for it for a while now Primus. I actually liked the changes made. Rather than just endlessly creating heros and mobs to zerg the enemy, you have to actually strategize and keep them alive so they can grow and gain abilities. Definately on my buy list.

While I'm happy to see this go gold, this is the first in the series I'm gonna try-before-you-buy rather than scooping it up on sight. Not sure if the new tactical battle system is going to be my cup of tea.
