Pathos Interactive and 2tainment GmbH announced the release date for their upcoming Real-Time Strategy title, Bannermen. It’s slated for February 21, 2019, and it will combine classic RTS elements with new environmental magic. Players will utilize nature powers as core gameplay, to command lightning strikes to distract and damage, or dust storms to sneak past their enemies. A fully story-driven campaign awaits, with each mission offering varied gameplay and challenges designed around the narrative, Bannermen will also have online multiplayer matchmaking and ladders.
Bannermen takes place in the realm of Valtoria, a low-fantasy medieval world ravaged by decades of war, starvation, and natural disasters. Players take on the role of Lord Berrian trying to recapture his kingdom’s former glory, finding and rallying bannermen to battle against a host of tribes and the dark Lord Karthor.
“2tainment is always looking for great games and great developers, and we’ve found both with Bannermen and Pathos Interactive,” said Alexander Wagner, Product Manager, at 2tainment GmbH. “We think fans of RTS games will appreciate Pathos’ fresh approach to the genre and are excited for the upcoming release of the game.”
