Elemental: War of Magic Announced

Postby Kristo » Nov 7 2008, 13:37

<img src="http://www.elementalgame.com/Images/overview.jpg" align=right vspace=10 hspace=10>Stardock has officially announced the title for its upcoming fantasy turn-based strategy game, Elemental: War of Magic. This game has been jokingly referred to as "Not Master of Magic" on the Stardock forums. They were not able to make a direct sequel to MOM due to licensing issues. Elemental: War of Magic borrows concepts from many existing fantasy strategy titles. Stardock CEO Brad Wardell told Gamasutra:

<i>"There's stuff in Civilization that we've taken; there's stuff from Master of Magic, Heroes of Might & Magic, Risk, Populous -- you name it," he said. "I have no shame when it comes to borrowing and being inspired by other games."</i>

The game is scheduled for release in February 2010. Fans who pre-order will be able to participate in a public beta starting in June of 2009. Beta-testers will be allowed to contribute content using Elemental's modding tools.

Sweet! I like that they're borrowing from some of my favorite games...especially MoM and Heroes.

The box has this nostalgic feel of good old pen & paper role-playing games ^^

Yes, probably not the best box to attract the buyer's attention on a shelf, but it sure brings that feeling of nostalgia.

Looking forward to this game :)
No matter how powerful one becomes, there is always someone stronger. That's why I'm in a constant pursuit of power, so I can be prepared when an enemy tries to take advantage of me.

It is nice to see another turn based fantasy strategy game coming out. I like the Galactic Civ games so I'm sure they'll do a good job on the game.

I saw somewhere that the target retail price will be $49.95 US, ten dollars more than GalCiv 2. Is that the cost of multiplayer perhaps? It's the same development team.

I'd have to play a demo before I got hyped over this. I didn't really care for Master of Magic. (though Heroes of Might & Magic and Populous are all on the top of my charts)
