Eschborn, June 07, 2013: A mighty fortress stands with a moat and defensive structures, and before it, an army that is determined to storm its fastness with siege engines. Attackers and defenders scramble to get their units into position shortly before the battle erupts. This is the world of Citadels and the tale of King Arthur and his struggle against Mordred and his allies.

Citadels relates a spellbinding story from a time of kings, noble knights, and impenetrable castles, offering medieval battles with extraordinary characters and numerous tactical possibilities. In order to survive waves of attacks and enemy sieges, players have to construct mighty castles and fortify them with moats, walls of spears, and units. In offensive missions, the player has to make sure that resource extraction and production are not disrupted in order to train a powerful army with a variety of different units and siege engines. The right balance between economy and battle is crucial for the outcome of every engagement.
