Immortal King’s Key Features Detailed

NGames have released today more details of the key gameplay features for their anticipated Greek mythology inspired MMORTS, Immortal King. First and foremost though, its closed beta will hit PCs this September, thus allowing you to command massive armies and fight alongside – and even against – infamous Greek gods.
Immortal King plunges you into a world steeped in Greek mythology, challenging you to command a powerful army of troops, become a legendary figure, and even conquer the Gods themselves.
The game will feature Heroes to choose from, Construction of your cities, a Challenge Mode, Battle Arrays and Leagues.
NGames will also reveal more game information in the build up to the closed beta launch this September.
As the press release reads:

Greek mythology is filled with revered heroes ? Immortal King is your chance to create your own!
After you have obtained the Golden Fleece and chosen your Faction, deciding whether to fight alongside Zeus (ruler of the skies), Poseidon (ruler of the seas) or Hades (ruler of the underworld) as they battle each other for control of Earth, you need to join forces with your chosen God and train heroes to lead you to victory.
Heroes are attracted to powerful leaders and will flock to join you as your Prestige raises. The higher your prestige ranking, the more powerful heroes you can recruit.
Players can also fight against other forces and obtain heroes through special Expedition quests.
Heroes are the commanding force of your massive armies. You must train and level up your heroes to ensure your army is in good hands, enhancing their core attributes and power to the benefit of your forces.
As a war strategy game, Immortal King challenges you to oversee and thoroughly plan the construction of your cities.
Unlike other RTS games that expect you to manage 4 or 5 resources at any given time, there is only one resource in IK ? Silver. This single-resource system allows you more time to focus on investing your money wisely, instead of worrying about meeting several different criteria to construct a building (who makes a town centre out of hay, anyway!?)
Silver can be obtained via levy, colonization, trade, selling crops, mining, salaries, dailies, and tons of exciting quests.
Wise investment in your Temple, Training Ground, Academy and banking buildings during the early stages of play will pay huge dividends later in the game.
Challenge Mode
An interesting way to play Immortal King, Challenge mode offers a break from the normal gameplay by thrusting you into intense skirmish situations.
Players are presented with a map that they must clear of all opposing forces. Once cleared, you move on to the next areas and continue to clear them of anybody standing in your way. Success in the Challenge modes will reap abundant in-game treasures and the possibility of new heroes to recruit for your armies, making the risk well worth the reward.
What’s more, you can earn massive amounts of Honour points after defeating the challenge areas, which you can spend on increasing your level of technologies and heroes.
Battle Arrays
Immortal King is much more involving than simply sending your troops into battle and waiting for a result.
Instead, IK allows you to organise your troops into 7 different kinds of arrays, which will make up your overall battle formation. Do you form a T-type array? Scatter your troops across a wider area? Perhaps a cross-formation will do the trick?
Immortal King provides you with 137 types of heroes and 72 types of soldier to arrange on the battlefield. Clever placement of the different hero types, such as tanker, attackers and healers, will be essential to victory.
Much like a Guild system but with an interesting twist, “Leagues” are one of the most impressive systems to feature in Immortal King.
All players can join a league and each member has a different position depending on their League Contribution. To build a strong League, you must seize farms and supplies from all three of the game’s factions, achieved through either PVP or PVE battle modes.
Each league can accommodate up to 50 members, who will engage in massive intense battles for control of the supplies. To help you on the path to victory, you can check the full attributes and forces of the competing heroes using the latest webgame technology.
