Bladestorm: The Hundred Years' War

Bladestorm: The Hundred Years' War, from the developers Omega Force, is a medieval-themed real-time strategy (RTS) video game released for the Microsoft Xbox 360 as well as the Sony PlayStation 3. For this RTS game, Omega Force utilizes a cutting-edge engine that gives the game rich battlegrounds and army battles on an epic scale. The game engine also allows each character to be animated independently.

Gameplay

The Hundred Years' War, roughly based on the 14th and 15th century war between England and France, features such heroic characters as Joan of Arc and Prince Edward. In the game, the player takes command of a mercenary squadron that can join either side. This “Free Mission” system allows the player to ally with either the English or the French on a combat-by-combat basis.

The player’s mercenary units include archers, cavalry and other foot soldiers as well as elephant units, cannoniers and castle siege units. For equipment, Bladestorm: The Hundred Years' War features over 400 different items (weapons, armor, etc.) that are historically accurate. Control of each unit during battles is done in real-time.

As the player advances through the game, he gains reputation depending on his performance in each mission. The player’s reputation will affect the difficulty of the missions he is sent on and the caliber of the troops that are made available to him. The higher his reputation, the more difficult the missions and the stronger his units.

Each unit in the player’s mercenary army gains experience and strength with each battle. Their abilities can be enhanced further using a points system.
