One of the fascinations with history is that we often want to think about how it all really happened, and relive some of moments that helped set history on its way. For video games, they like to give you that feeling, but also to allow you to grow your own path through history. And that’s exactly what the turn-based strategy game Oriental Empires is going to do. It’ll allow you to be at the beginning of China itself, and forge your own path from colony to empire. What’s more, the game is coming out on Steam September 14th!
The game has been on quite a journey itself, as it was on Steam Early Access for a year, slowly changing and growing so that it could be the best game possible. And fans seemed to have liked what they played, as it has an 83% review rating. To celebrate its upcoming arrival, the team at Iceberg Studios have released a launch trailer for the title.
As for the game itself, you’ll choose from one of 16 different factions and start your path to glory. This mix of civilization building and combat will have you going up against many different factions and elements in order to build up your kingdom, influence, resources, and more. All in the name of becoming the greatest empire out there and being recognized as the “Son Of Heaven”, and become the literal ruler of the world.
The game is more than just strategy though, Oriental Empires has you on a realistic terrain of China and Mongolia, and accurate 3D models of the people and warriors that filled up the ancient eras of Chinese history.
So, pick where you want to start, choose wisely how you’ll build up your empire, then go forth and make it happen. The world will be waiting for you on Steam on September 14th.
