Kingmakers - when you absolutely, positively, gotta kill every knight in the room.

Do you know what’s been missing from traditional medieval strategy games? Assault rifles and Apache helicopters, yes, that’s definitely what you said. If you’ve ever had a hankering to settle an age-old village dispute with overwhelming firepower and modern technology, Kingmakers might just be the game of your dreams. Don’t just take my word for it though, check out its absolutely bonkers trailer for yourself:

What’s the set-up for this all-out extravaganza of ridiculous carnage? You’re an elite task force operative sent back through time to change history and prevent a future apocalypse. Basically, you’re Kyle Reese, but swap out glitzy Los Angeles and walking death machines for muddy England and reeking spearmen. Might not be as cool, but at least you’re bringing a shotgun to a knife fight.

Kingmakers is being built on some key pillars that the developers hope will deliver a euphorically chaotic experience:

  • Change History & Save the Future: You’re the last hope in a dying world. Travel back 500 years to medieval England to change the course of a bloody war and, if you’re lucky, stave off the apocalypse.
  • Groundbreaking Medieval Simulation: Each battle runs as a fully real-time simulation with thousands of soldiers fighting simultaneously. Next-gen multi-threaded AI controls the decision-making and loyalty of every unit on the battlefield, combined with a unique procedural animation system for an unprecedented degree of character and combat fidelity.
  • Bring Guns (and a Lot More) to a Sword Fight: Use assault rifles, shotguns, grenade launchers, armored SUVs, bikes, attack helos, air strikes, and more to make sure the history-altering goes smoothly. Put your sharpshooting skills to the test and wreak absolute havoc on the battlefield.
  • Command Your Troops in Battle: Seamlessly swap between combat and issuing orders at any time for endless strategic possibilities. Allocate legions of archers, swordsmen, spearmen, and cavalry, build fortifications, and plan your next move before diving right back into the fray.
  • Conquer Solo or Team Up in Co-op: Up to three friends can lead their own armies alongside yours in online co-op. Work together to break down the enemy castle’s defenses or defend allied strongholds against hordes of opponents. Prepare for an epic medieval multiplayer experience like no other.

To say that we’re excited over at Finger Guns HQ would be putting it mildly, to say the least. You can almost guarantee at least three of us will be dropping 360 no scopes on some poor archer’s face and driving head first into legions of knights with our SUVs. What a gaming world we live in.

Kingmakers will be releasing in 2024 via Early Access on Steam. While a firm date still eludes us, you can re-watch its emphatic trailer in anticipation.
