This is a rare breed of console game: an RTS. It is the sequel of Kingdom Under Fire: A War of Heroes, by Korean developers Phantagram which was released only for PCs with little success. The sequel combines traditional RTS gameplay with action elements in order to better accommodate console gamers and the lack of a mouse.

Men (the kingdoms of Hironeiden and Ecclesia) and the Dark Legion (comprised of various evil fantasy races) clash for dominance of their world in a four part single player campaign. Fifty years have passed since the Second Great War of Heroes, whose events were described in the previous game. The Ancient Heart, the legendary artifact which caused the War has vanished, the war itself was forgotten and peace reigned over the land. Or so it seemed...

The player assumes the role of commander for each of the four armies which take part in this war, and must lead his troops to victory by actually fighting in the battles and also by issuing orders to them. The hero accumulates experience points while fighting, thus increasing his skills.
