will launch into Early

with support for a 62-player battle royale mode. A new
how this game spans the stone age through modern times. Here's what they say
about the clip: "The new trailer for War Selection features quintessential
base-building and management gameplay inspired by the early RTS games of the
90s. The improvements within and across the ages will help you get the edge on
your opponents as you struggle to secure your peoples' future." Here's more on
War Selection starts players off in the Stone Age during each game while the
player chooses its path to victory by advancing through the eras as you modify
your culture to your play style. Each variety of era has its own technological
upgrades and visual style based on the culture it comes from. For example,
advancing through the Iron Age as Asia confers different bonuses than going
through as a European empire. These options let players customize the way they
play and choose the strategy that suits them. Single and multiplayer modes add
variety to gameplay, especially the Battle Royale mode. A massive 62 players
will be supported, with the smallest empires being automatically knocked out of
the game as time progresses, forcing constant conflict as the pressure to expand
continues to build.
War Selection was created in Glyph Worlds' custom-built GlyphEngine. The
proprietary engine was developed with online strategy and MOBA features in mind
to support a tremendous amount of active objects as well as the staggering
64-player multiplayer games.
"We can’t wait for players to get their hands on our game come October. We
are huge fans of RTS games and we set out to make the kind of game we love to
play ourselves. I hope that players will pick up on that energy we put into the
game; our passion for the RTS genre." says Roman Budkeev, CEO of Glyph Worlds.
