Former Creative Assembly developers at independent studio Tower Five has announced that their story-driven fantasy action-strategy game Lornsword Winter Chronicle is coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One this Fall.
“We at Tower Five love real-time strategy games, yet the genre has struggled to make the move to consoles, as gamepad controls were ill-equipped for many of the genre classics”, said Renaud Charpentier, Game Director at Tower Five. “That’s why we rethought from the ground up how a strategy game would work. Now you have direct control of your Lornknight, while also having to manage resources and command a larger army. It’s a lot to take in, but having to care for your specific avatar and throngs of units ensures that there’s never a dull moment.”
Coinciding with the console launch, Lornsword Winter Chronicle will come out of Steam Early Access, unleashing the full adventure upon PC players.
Players currently enrolled in the Xbox Insider Program can participate in previewing and providing feedback on the Lornsword Winter Chronicle demo in an initiative which begins today. The Lornsword Playtest will commence today from 10am Pacific Time / 6pm BST.
