Elemental: War of Magic is an an upcoming turn based fantasy strategy game from software development company Stardock. The game puts the player in the role of a magic wielding sovereign who through the influence and instruction of the player achieves various goals. Players decide on which technologies to research, magic to learn, where to found new cities, diplomatic relations with neighbors, when to go to war all with the aim of being the master the Elemental world.
Stardock is no stranger to strategy games as they have produced critically acclaimed titles like Sins of a Solar Empire, Demigod and the Galactic Empires series in the past. With Elemental: War of Magic however the creators intend to have a rich story driven game that will attract and retain players with it’s depth while still being mod friendly and introducing enough new game-play elements to separate it from the fantasy strategy gaming crowd.
Elemental: War of Magic is a turn-based strategy game set in a world of magic, warfare and intrigue. In it, players take on the role of a powerful sorcerer known as a “Channeler”. Players found new cities, research new technologies, study spells, build a family dynasty, engage in diplomacy, fight wars, go on quests and much more as they strive to overcome all enemies and dominate the world.
