Blood of Steel Announced

Chinese developer Evolution Studio announces Blood of Steel, a PvP MOBA that will launch on January 9, 2020 on Steam as a free-to-play title. Some players won't have to wait that long, however, as a closed beta demo is expected at some time this month. A gameplay trailer accompanies the news, but does not live up to its title, as it doesn't seem to include actual gameplay. Here's word:
Evolution Studio, the Chinese-based development studio of YC Games is pleased to announce the free-to-play PvP MOBA game Blood of Steel will launch on PC for Steam in early 2020. In Blood of Steel, command your army and wage war against other players online using historical generals in authentic and dynamic locations. Later this November a closed beta demo will be released to test the server stability, latency and most importantly player feedback.

Blood of Steel is a PvP MOBA strategy game set throughout the Middle Ages where you lead legions to conquer cities, expand your territory and ultimately rule the world. Players assume control of legendary commanders from world history including Joan of Arc, Julius Cesar and Alexander the Great, each with their own distinct weapons and personalities, as you lead their troops to victory. Take control of multiple troop types from archers, calvary riders, swordsmen, spearmen, crossbowmen and more to gain the upper hand on the battlefield. Terrain plays an important part in warfare; players can choose from multiple maps comprising of open plains, lush grasslands, snowy fields, city streets and many other locales. Clever use of this terrain and management of a dynamic weather system incorporating variables such as rain and snow are key to victory.

Battles are conducted from a third-person perspective on arena-like maps where two teams of either 5-v-5, 7-v-7 or 10-v-10 players duke it out with one another, with each individual player allowed to lead up to 40 AI soldiers. Every troop type can be controlled by players, each with its own strengths and weaknesses, giving players the ability to strategize together with their unit types. As well as the legion-based warfare, players can duel one-on-one in PvP battles in the Heroes Arena with direct control over 4 attack and block directions, defense-breaks, rolls, sidesteps, charge attacks and heavy attacks, combining to form an engaging fighting system.

“With intricate character designs, dynamic battlegrounds and in-depth strategy Blood of Steel offers a truly engrossing MOBA experience,” said Cao, Game Director of YC Games. “As we improve the game with the help of our amazing fan base, we look forward to the players enjoying the game at its full potential.”
