Epsom, UK – November 28, 2013 – Strategy and environment interaction: these are the key words of the upcoming fantasy tactical strategy game which will hit your PC: Drums of War!

In a world of magic and mythical creatures, you will lead your army through 2 campaigns spanning 30 missions each, choosing to be a hero of one of the 4 available races. Rely on your strengths but also on the power of magic and spells, recruit more soldiers, gain experience and conquer the world with your army!

Also offering a Hotseat multiplayer option, the fantasy world of Drums of War goes beyond your imagination; every object present on the map is interactive and can be used to reach your goal: for instance rocks can be used as weapons and trees can be set on fire - and you can do all this and more, just by a one-click of your mouse! The in-game campaign editor lets you create custom campaigns, as a series of linked battles, with story text and customized rewards. You can save these campaigns a single file in order to easily share them.

About Drums of War.

“Drums of War” - is a turn-based tactical strategy game boasting a well developed combat system and interactive environment, providing endless opportunities for tactics.

You play the role of a hero-leader. As the campaigns unfold the size of your armies can increase by up to 16 varied units. By participating in battles, all of the units become more experienced while naturally getting stronger. Between fights players have the ability to hire new recruits, buy potions and distribute artifacts obtained in battles. Each unit can be outfitted with one artifact and two potions. In addition to common units the player's army can include up to three unique heroes.

The turn-based combat takes place on battlefields divided into traditional hexes. Just as in role-playing games, each unit is an independent fighter with their own skills and equipment. Almost every environment object is interactive – one can chop down a tree, set it on fire, or even turn it into an ally using magic. Each unit has its own action points which can be spent for any action – movement, attacks, spells or active skills. The player can randomly move units during his turn.

With each unit the player has to make important tactical and strategic decisions. There is no need to remember a large number of unit properties or make complicated calculations – the player should rely on their personal assessment of the current situation.

For most of the actions only one mouse click is enough – directing your army is easy and comfortable!
