Pathos Interactive and 2tainment GmbH launched their RTS title Bannermen today on PC via Steam. Bannermen mixes classic real-time strategy elements such as base building and resource gathering with incredible, world-shattering magical abilities. From summoning lightning, tornadoes and volcanic explosions, these nature-based powers can definitely turn the tide of battle.
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, who is trying to recapture his kingdom’s former glory, finding and rallying bannermen to battle against a host of tribes and the dark Lord Karthor. A heavy story-driven campaign awaits, with varied gameplay and online multiplayer modes/ladders.
“We are excited for the launch of Bannermen and can’t wait for players to try out Pathos’ modernized take on the classic RTS formula” said Alexander Wagner, Product Manager at 2tainment GmbH. “The environmental magic, combined with the game’s rich characters and story, will certainly entertain fans of the genre and those new to Real-Time Strategy.”
