Description

Knightshift is a hybrid of the RPG and the RTS genre. The singleplayer RTS part consists of three campaigns, in a fantasy setting. During the campaigns, you characters gather items, develop skills and can level their stats to gain new abilities.

In the RPG mode, you can explore a larger selection of maps, quests, actions and enemies. This mode features improved character development with new skills and the ability to hire new characters or trade items.

In the multiplayer mode, servers support up to 65.000 players through the EarthNet® server system. Every player on the server has his/her own account protected by a password. With each server account up to 8 self developed RPG characters with their own inventory, skills and level ups can be managed. League and Companion MP matches are supported. MP matches are possible in RTS Battle, RTS destroy structure and RPG adventure mode with predefined or self created maps and mods.
