Description

Heroes of Etheria is the fourth game in the Warlords turn-based strategy series, combining classic turn-based strategy with real-time strategy tactics as you attempt to conquer towns and provinces and destroy your foes.

Warlords IV features a plethora of units and races available to you, with every single unit having its own unique abilities and role in your quest for conquest. Units and heroes gain experience and levels, growing ever stronger as you advance through the map. Persistent heroes allow you to equip them with magical artifacts and bring the heroes from one battle to the next.

Your Warlord gains levels as well, allowing you to upgrade your capital or put points into a number of skills that will aid you in future battles.

Gameplay is a very simple Heroes of Might & Magic-style turn-based strategy game. It uses the same engine as Warlords: Battlecry and almost all graphics are from Battlecry and Battlecry II.
