Cyanide Studio, the developer behind Blood Bowl and the upcoming Game of Thrones RPG, have released their PC-only real-time tactical RPG Confrontation, adapted from the well-know board game. Some websites call an action RPG, some a real-time strategy/RPG hybrid. Some compare it to Dungeon Siege, some to Dawn of War II. I haven't played it so I can't tell you what it really is, but in case you might be interested, here's a screenshot and the official description:
Confrontation is a tactical RPG for PC developed by Cyanide. Based on the universe of the board game of the same name by Rakham, Confrontation focuses on intense and tactical battles, mixing strategy and other elements of RPGs. Every single decision, choice and action you take will be crucial in battle and will determine if you emerge victorious… or dead!
The game unfolds in the original fantasy universe of Confrontation Aarklash. Take the lead of an elite squad of Griffin soldiers, infiltrating enemy territory in order to put an end to the Scorpion threat. The fearsome creatures of the Alchemists of Dirz (the Scorpion), the ferocious Wolfen packs (the Wolf), and the brutal Orcs of Bran-O-Kor (the Jackal) are among the dangerous opponents the courageous soldiers of the Griffin will have to confront during their quest, deep inside the continent of Aarklash.
The solo campaign of Confrontation is rich in dangerous and exciting missions, where you will lead a reckless elite squad of the Griffin. Starting with a few warriors, your squad will soon be completed by many new companions, each having their own characteristics, skills and powers. Choose with care, for each mission, the soldiers who will fight by your side. Careful management of your units, their powers and equipment, will get you through near-death situations and lead you to epic victory!
Apart from the singleplayer campaign, Confrontation features multiplayer PvP. You can buy the game on Steam as well as visit the official website for more info. Better yet, check out a gameplay video or two.
