Sony Online Entertainment and developer Ronimo Games have announced a collaborative effort to bring Swords & Soldiers, a side-scrolling, RTS game, to PSN. Swords & Soldiers is an innovative strategy game featuring lush graphics, smooth controls, strong online integration and fresh gameplay.
Commanding the armies of the burly Vikings, the vicious Aztecs or the cunning Chinese, players create powerful units, cast devastating spells and travel the globe in search of the ultimate trophy. Players can acquire resources, assemble armies, thwart enemies and dominate opponents, while earning up to 20 trophies. As players advance, new modes and mini-games will be unlocked. To play online, players can enter Matchmaking Mode at any time. Once a suitable opponent is found, the current gameplay will be paused until the battle is completed meaning there is no waiting to battle and no break in the strategy action. Swords & Soldiers is scheduled to launch on PSN early this Fall/Winter. While we are waiting for another Civilization to come back to consoles, guess this will have to do.
