Source: Manor Lords: An Upcoming City-Builder With Medieval Battles
The recently announced game is impressive for various reasons. It is the combo of the city builder and real-time combat style based on Total-War. The game is currently in Early Access.
The developer of Manor Lords, Slavic Magic, unveiled the game’s trailer based on all-new strategies of the medieval time. The game trailer went viral very soon, which has a combination of large-scale realistic and organic city-building with tactical battles strategies. The online gamers are comparing the game to Stronghold, Banished, and Total War. Since the game has been developed by a single developer, so the developer is planning to release the game in early access later in the year 2020.
According to the Manor Lords trailer, at first, it appears that the plot of the game is based on medieval game strategies like Kingdom Come: Deliverance. Later, it reveals that the plan-based game has trading shops and villagers busy building houses like the people used to do in the medieval era. Then, as the trailer moves on, it reveals that the game will be using real-time strategies with the companies of swordsmen and archers in significant battles.
The Steam Profile of Manor Lords has described that the game features tactical battles with large scale city buildings appearing organic, deep and realistic in approach. While explaining the terms deep and natural, Slavic Magic says that the city building in the game is without grids. It will give full control to the online game player’s over-rotation and placement. Further, Slavic Magic has explained the meaning of realistic in the game and said the game had been inspired by the conditions prevailing in Europe from the 11th to 15th century. It means the entire setup of the game is not precise as it has been presented with season and weather changes. The field plowed with the team of oxen and the herd of sheep on the open pastures provides the entire set up of the game a more realistic look.
