SAN FRANCISCO & LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SEGA® of America and SEGA® Europe Ltd. today announced the launch of Godsrule: War of Mortals, the free-to-play, cross-platform build and battle game, is now available on iPad. Offering a shared play experience, the iPad version features full cross-platform play with the current service available on browser. Developed in partnership with Icelandic studio Gogogic ehf., Godsrule: War of Mortals is a multiplayer combat strategy game with a city building element that can be enjoyed by new and expert gamers alike.
Set in a lush fantasy world where an epic war has broken out between the Old and New Gods, Godsrule: War of Mortals creates a completely immersive and intense experience for fans by allowing players to choose sides and fight for their clan. Featuring 20 fierce battle units, gamers can compete solo or play cooperatively to train advanced spells and units, complete quests, build skills and receive valuable rewards – with everyone on a quest for domination of Midrealms.
“The game already has a loyal and active fan base and it has been exciting for us to see the community form and grow,” said Gudmundur Bjargmundsson, Co-founder and CEO of Gogogic ehf. “Thanks to SEGA’s support, we are now able to bring the first live player versus player build and battle game to a wider audience of gamers across the globe.”
Godsrule: War of Mortals provides a variety of melee and range units with spell options that directly affect strategy and planning. Building the craft tower in the village allows players to customize strategy changing the effects of their armies’ abilities and spell affects. The strategic depth is endless with multiple customization options to balance a unit’s strengths. There’s an advantage to being on the winning team as gamers get bonus resources, access to elite units and spells when a territory is controlled by a players’ faction and even more for their clan. Players can build up their town with a lumber mill, trade posts and more to process valuable resources in order to make deals with other and stake their claim as a merchant lord.
The Godsrule world will continue to expand with new spells, battle units and more opportunities for support and combat tactics. Additionally, new solo battle scenarios will help online rulers advance their tactical skills and ranks, better preparing for the heroic battles ahead.
