The wait is over. Microsoft announced today that Kingdom Under Fire: Heroes goes on sale on September 20.
Set five years before The Crusaders, a new cast of seven heroes will take players through 50 massive medieval battlefields in the single player Campaign Mode. Action elements have been boosted with a larger arsenal of power moves, yet the new units and environments make the strategy even deeper. Fans are taken behind the scenes in Heroes to uncover the reasons for the Encablossa War, and will get to experience each new character up close and personal for a whole new Kingdom Under Fire experience.
Although The Crusaders has already been recognized for its innovative combination of action and real-time strategy, the developers have worked hard to ensure Kingdom Under Fire: Heroes is a bigger, better, yet more approachable sequel in every way. Random Missions and Custom Missions allow players to enjoy unlimited new missions after they complete the campaign. The totally overhauled multiplayer supports up to six players on Xbox Live in the strategic Troop Battle Mode, the arcade-style Hero Battle Mode, and the cooperative Invasion Mode. Spectator Mode and Fair-Match condition make sure that even beginners can have fun online without fearing defeat.
