New Turn-Based Strategy Game Announced: Warlock – Master of the Arcane
Paradox Interactive has just announced a new game under development called Warlock – Master of the Arcane. A turn-based strategy game, Warlock – Master of the Arcane places players in the role of a Great Mage whose task is to build an empire. Players can control magic and armies to battle other mages in a quest to rule the world.
“The great thing about Warlock is that it inherits the best elements from classic turn-based games and renovates them with a modern look and feel,” said Mattias Lilja, Producer at Paradox Interactive. “Partnering with Ino-Co Plus to bring this breath of fresh air to the genre is just icing on the cake, they’ve done well to bring the Majesty world to life in the past and we are confident they’ll deliver again.”
Warlock – Master of the Arcane offers a wide range of military units –three different races, along with summons and wild creatures – as well as providing dozens of spells, from which players can discover powerful spell combinations to help attain victory over their adversaries. With epic battles to fight, gods to side with, and an innovative city management system, players must strike a balance between military might and magical prowess to remain the last mage standing.
Warlock – Master of the Arcane is expected to be released sometime during the second quarter of 2012.
An introductory video has been released in conjunction with the game’s announcement.
