After nearly a three-month delay that has had us sharpening our swords in anticipation, we thought we were prepared for the scheduled appearance of Autumn Dynasty: Warlords on the App Store tomorrow. However, in an unexpected sneak attack, Touch Dimensions has decided to release the RTS sequel a day early.
Set in feudal China, the massive 4x (explore, expand, exploit, and exterminate) strategy game puts you on the path of the Autumn Emperor. Destined to unite the country under a single banner, you will have to build cities, conduct espionage, and raise armies to 'convince' the other provinces that you should indeed be their ruler.
Featuring real-time battles, a non-linear campaign, and randomly generated maps, the handsomely-drawn follow-up to Autumn Dynasty has our attention. Check back for our hands-on video later today.
Autumn Dynasty: Warlords is available now for £4.99 / $6.99. If you are still uncertain however, you can grab the original Autumn Dynasty from the App Store for free for a limited time.
