Combat Strategy titles as the vast majority of us recognise them are few and far between on Xbox One, however the newly released Battle Ages from DR Studios and 505 Games will appease fans of the genre. The fact that it’s free will put a smile on many gamers’ faces, too!
Of course free titles are free for a reason, and in Battle Ages you are able to purchase Gems as DLC which will aid your efforts in building up your empire, it’s fighting forces and of course your defenses too. They are by no means required though to enjoy the game. Here’s a brief trailer:
Developers, DR Studios, have launched the title with this description: Lead a civilization from the dawn of time to the modern age. Journey through 6 distinct, authentic, and exciting ages in time from launch, with more ages following very soon. Compete against thousands of other players for domination on a global scale. Research new and powerful weapons to aid your fight. Join forces with friends to take on other groups in epic battles that span generations. Battle players across the ages – see Neolithic Barbarians fight Medieval Knights, and Roman Legionnaires stand off against Union soldiers. 22 different units, 15 different spells, 11 different traps and more than 50 unique buildings to construct.
My untrained eye immediately picks up echoes of one of my own all time favourite strategy titles, Age of Empires. There are also obvious similarities with multiple popular mobile games available at the moment so, how will it fare on Xbox One? Only time will tell, I’ll be jumping into it very shortly so check back in at Xbox Sector very soon for my own impressions.
Ain’t nobody got time for that? Go ahead and play it for yourself! Click here to start your free download of Battle Ages. Enjoy!
