Seoul, South Korea – June 24, 2020 – South Korean studio Blueside is excited to announce that Kingdom Under Fire: Heroes, the sequel to the Xbox cult hit Kingdom Under Fire: The Crusaders, has launched on Steam and GOG today after nearly fifteen years of Xbox exclusivity.
Kingdom Under Fire: Heroes will launch with a 15% discount and delivers another seven campaigns of brutal RTS/action hybrid warfare set in a heavy metal fantasy world.
Containing campaigns set both before and after the Crusader’s storyline, players control seven fresh leaders in Heroes; half-vampire Leinhart, massive ogre warlord Urukubarr, and the half-elf warrior Ellen among them. Players wade into battle, hacking and slashing while simultaneously commanding their forces, including four new and powerful elemental monster types.
Kingdom Under Fire: Heroes blends brutal melee combat action, deep real-time tactical planning, and RPG-style evolution for your hero and army. Heroes lead the charge, but not without help from the regiments of troops, swooping dragons, almighty airships, and powerful mages under their command.
The full list of features include:
The Crusaders’ intense action-strategy blend returns, refined and improved.
Burn enemies out of forests with flaming arrows, order cavalry charges with the sun at their backs, and claim the high ground.
Seven new campaigns, seven new playable heroes, fifty story missions to conquer, and thousands of troops to lay waste to.
Clash with and command powerful new elemental beasts, including Fire Wraiths, Ice Maidens, Thunder Rhinos, and Earth Golems.
Randomly generated side-missions for endless replay value.
See the story of The Crusaders from fresh angles, with both Human Alliance and Dark Legion campaigns leading up to and threaded through the battle for Bersia.
Keyboard and mouse support – a new method of controlling the battlefield is available to PC players.
Full, modern gamepad support.
HD resolution support including ultra-wide monitors.
The classic Xbox experience, enhanced. Authentic and pin-sharp on PC.
