Release the Dogs of War

By
Posted on May 29, 2013 AT 01:09am

Shall you pledge allegiance to the Lion, Wolf, or Ram?

You and only you can decide which faction you shall rule over. Pick up your sword, in the form of your mouse, and strike down those who oppose you. As one of three war torn factions you will fight for your honor. Strategy will play a role in the game as you not only fight the war against other armies but the one that will rise inside your ranks.

Cyanide today released official concept art and 3D renderings on the first three factions available at the launch of its multiplayer free-to-play game, Dogs of War Online, inspired by Rackham’s Confrontation miniatures game expansion. The knights of the Lion army, the fierce wolves of the Wolfen army, and the undead terrors of the Ram army will be present at roll call in Q3 2013!

- The army of the Lion -

The Barhan soldiers of the great kingdom of Alahan are the defenders of Virtue, Justice, and Light. Soliders of the Barhan faction draw power from the legendary animal stands for: strength, courage, and nobility.

- The army of the Wolf -

Whether roaming the wild lands or defending their territories, the Wolfen, half-man, half-wolf predators, instill fear into the heart of their enemy.  They are the protectors of nature and the keepers of the balance of Creation.

- The army of the Ram -

A wave of un-dead, herded by lords reawakened from the grave, along with corrupt-minded living leaders make up the army of Acheron in all its macabre splendor. With the Ram as its emblem, the symbol of the eternal alliance binding them to the horned lords of the Abyss, Acheron builds its strength century after century.

Different types of fighters will be available in each of the three factions, allowing players to create a group of mercenaries suited to the desired level and style of play. Players are then tasked with implementing arena combat strategy. Battles employ turn-based combat to reinforce the tactical aspect and maintain the spirit of the board game. The adventure continues when players are tasked with sending troops on missions, alone or in co-op mode with other players, to increase reward. Finally, players are tasked with maintaining harmony within their army as troops are prone to deserting and raising tension amongst themselves!

Dogs Of War will be available for free on Windows PCs in Q3 2013. Strategy game players as well as those just looking for a strong PC game will be delighted in the offering. Be sure to keep an eye on the official forum as well as the Facebook page for more info as it becomes available.
