When Aterdux Entertainment's Legends of Eisenwald was released last July after many years in development, it was not initially a great success. Even though the game received a DLC scenario in November and a Season Pass promising two more in 2016, its future seemed doubtful, and there was even talk of Aterdux being forced to become a F2P developer. A year later, though, things seem to have improved and Eisenwald was declared profitable, with tentative plans to expand its next DLC into a full-blown expansion by means of a small Kickstarter campaign. A Kickstarter campaign that was launched today with no prior warning. The expansion, which is now planned to be a standalone title, is called Eisenwald: Blood of November. Here's its pitch video and description:
In this new story you will get to decide who is fit for the throne of the duchy of Eisenwald. The duke is dead, long live the duke. Two factions vie for the throne and you will have to choose a side, for neutrality is not an option.
We considered where we wanted to take the Eisenwald experience following on from Legends of Eisenwald and we decided that the sandbox route might suit our style of gameplay best. This will give the player an opportunity to experience the world of Eisenwald from a new angle, but still enjoy an old-school adventure in a standalone form. It’s also a great option for players scared off by the hefty 50 hours that was in Legends of Eisenwald. No prior knowledge of Eisenwald is required to get the full experience in Blood of November.
This new adventure will have many new features:
- Random events that add a great amount of replayability;
- Smart re-spawn - improved dynamic balance of the armies;
- Updated look - the engine and graphics will be reworked and improved;
- Sandbox like gameplay – freedom of movement;
- Experimental quest system that will change according to your behavior.
This game will cost $9 and provide 6-10 hours of gameplay.
