Many years have passed since Artos found revenge for his slain father and brought peace to the land of Orbis from the predecessor Warrior Kings. Now Orbis is in turmoil once again after Duke Hagen murdered the heir to the throne, Artos IV. This is where Warrior Kings: Battles, a real-time strategy game, begins. You must conquer province by province to bring peace once again to Orbis.
There are several modes to play that include the typical campaign mode in which you will play missions to conquer one province at a time, skirmish mode where you can play a single player mode against 1 to 7 pre-made AI players on a selected map, Valhalla mode like skirmish mode lets you play with no economy for shorter games and a multiplayer mode to play against live opponents online or a mix of AI and human players.
During campaign mode you will have different alignments to follow which will determine the type of empire you build. If you choose Renaissance your strong points will include better resource gathering and siege weapons but if you choose to follow the ways of the Pagan you will have the best attack and have access to pagan beasts. There are a total of five to choose from which include two combinations like Pagan-Renaissance (Demons and War Machines).
