About Ancestors Legacy

About this game

Pillaging villages and brutal battles

It’s time to take command of your army and storm through medieval Europe in a series of campaigns in real-time strategy Ancestors Legacy. With this Steam key, you’ll get to choose from one of four available nations – Viking, Anglo-Saxon, German, Slav – tasked with more than just conquering, raiding and pillaging enemy camps, villages and towns.
Utilize the full range of available tactical options, taking strategic advantage of the environment, and managing your temporary bases and settlements to emerge victorious.

HISTORY TOLD YOUR WAY

Ancestors Legacy is a historically accurate real-time strategy game based around squad-based battles, influenced by historical events in the Middle Ages. Combining resource management and base building with large-scale, squad-based battles across vast battlefields – all stunningly rendered thanks to the Unreal Engine 4 – players will experience medieval bloodshed like never before. The cinematic action camera puts you right in the middle of the battle at the press of a button.

SNEAKY APPROACH OR ALL-OUT WAR

This is a fun, squad based RTS set in the time of Vikings invading England. While there are only a handful of unit types for each faction, they have different abilities to make them feel unique. I got Age of Empires IV around the same time, and prefer Ancestors Legacy so far. I really like the squad based vs single unit style. Especially since squads here can be leveled and armored up - though unlike Company of Heroes and Dawn of War, there isn't any further customization such as with weapons. Story/campaign missions have been a lot of fun.

Ancestors Legacy Review

Staff Review
Stealthy missions and large-scale wars, all captured in the awesome Unreal Engine 4, means Ancestors Legacy is offering something pretty unique from other historical-based war games right now. The addition of Tobii software is the cherry on top of an already delicious cake!
