Stardock Announces Elemental: War of Magic
Set in a fantasy world filled with magic and ancient lore, Elemental casts you as the only being in your kingdom still able to channel power from the shards of magic remaining in the realm. Rule a fledgling kingdom and expand it across the world through a combination of magical power, military might, diplomatic skill, technological advancement and bold adventuring.
Elemental is an immersive fantasy strategy game developed by the same team that created Galactic Civilizations and published Sins of a Solar Empire and Demigod. This adventure enables you to choose your preferred mode for striking out on this quest: single player or multiplayer. The single player campaign tells the story of Elemental, while ground breaking multiplayer modes include traditional skirmish modes as well as a persistent universe mode.
Players who pre-order the game will be able to download beta builds via Impulse. This enables them to give feedback, suggestions and even begin populating Elemental with their own creations via the integrated modding environment. Elemental is scheduled to go into public beta by June 2009.
