Ce très bon jeu de stratégie façon jeu de plateau en ligne qui mélange habilement tour par tour, free to play, temps réel et mode multijoueur coopératif est arrivé cette semaine sur Steam Greenlight. Blight of the Immortals est une sorte d’originale course contre la montre dans laquelle plusieurs joueurs doivent lutter désespérément contre des hordes de zombies ravageant un monde médiéval-fantastique.

En soi le jeu n’est pas nouveau, il existe depuis plusieurs années, mais le studio Iron Helmet a relancé le projet l’hiver dernier pour y apporter de nombreuses améliorations. Telles par exemple des cartes et unités supplémentaires, une campagne jouable en solo (36 missions), ou encore des cartes à collectionner ajoutant par exemple des Héros.

Pour plus d’informations sur Blight of the Immortals, voyez la précédente bande-annonce et le communiqué ci-dessous, puis le site officiel, où vous pouvez vous inscrire pour participer gratuitement à la bêta, ou cette page sur Greenlight, où vous pouvez bien sûr voter pour soutenir ce projet. Qui en théorie devrait arriver à terme entre cet été et l’automne prochain.

Annonce

Fantasy! Strategy! Zombies!
Blight of the Immortals is a slow, real-time, cooperative strategy game where you lead armies of fantasy creatures to destroy the Blight of zombies that is infecting the lands.

To save the world, you must recruit heroes, raise armies, and claim ground to fight back the undead horde. As time marches on, so does the zombie horde. You must choose wisely where to send your heroes, how to forge your empire, and where to make your stand against the Blight.

Backstory
A plague of undead creatures threatens to overwhelm the land. With the fall of each town to the Blight, more walking dead arise and the zombie apocalypse draws ever nearer.

For the first time in centuries, the six great races of Alundria must stand together. The lawful races of Elves, Dwarves, and Men; and the chaotic races of Orcs, Goblins, and Trolls. The strengths that make each race unique … magic, riches, power … are twisted and darkened as each creature rises as a zombie version of its former self.

Features
Blight of the Immortals includes a slow, real-time cooperative multiplayer mode and an innovative turn-based, single player mode. It is also a unique blend of online strategy board game and collectible card game. Here are our key features:
A cooperative multiplayer mode where players work together to defeat the zombies.

No need to wait for your turn! Just log in throughout the day to command your forces and coordinate your strategy with the other players in games that last weeks.

An innovative single player mode where you can choose how far ahead in time to jump each turn. Earn Valour by throwing caution to the wind and jumping ahead 12 hours or pay Valour to micromanage your forces and jump ahead just 1 hour.

The single player campaign include 36 missions spanning the 6 different races. Explore new strategies, collect new hero cards, and master the different races with each new scenario.

Collect hundreds of Hero cards and explore new strategies and combinations with each deck you build.
