Koei Tecmo has announced that Bladestorm Nightmare will be released on Steam this May. Bladestorm: Nightmare is a strategy game where the player takes the role of a mercenary and chooses to fight either for England or for France in missions inspired by real events and battles of the era dubbed ‘the Hundred Years War’(1337-1453).
In Bladestorm: Nightmare the player is called to create a mercenary and accept missions that will advance the English or the French cause in the course of the Hundred Year War. The successful completion of these missions depends on a variety of elements that put the player’s fighting abilities, strategy, tactical and leadership skills to the test.
The Mercenary does not ride to the field alone, but as the commander of an army unit chosen to fit each individual situation as some missions are better fought with foot soldiers, others with lances, archers, light cavalry, or a combination of melee, ranged and mounted units.
Furthermore, in Bladestorm: Nightmare the battle system has been updated to allow simultaneous control of up to four army units. This gives the game even more strategic edge, as the units can be repositioned at any time and ordered to take certain actions that will help the mission succeed (e.g. attack from a certain angle, hold a position, or group with another unit to name a few).
The player can choose to switch to command any of these units in real time, combine them in a 200 soldier troop for a charged attack, or issue orders to each and any of them using the battle map interface.
