Empires Apart is a new RTS by Italy-based developer DESTINYbit, harkening back to the classics of the genre such as Age of Empires and Empire Earth. Set in the medieval age, players will have to collect resources, build armies, and go to war in order to claim victory.
DESTINYbit is focused on bringing back “old-school-like” gameplay to the genre that features “an isometric-style view with no camera rotation, a grid system for building placement, four resources (food, wood, gold, stone) and deep and elegant gameplay.” Further elaborating on their intentions, the team mentioned that “We’re improving and evolving on the classic RTS formula with gameplay targeted to competitive online play and eSports.”
The game is set to feature 6 civilizations which will all look and play differently, as well as several hero units and a few more features that have yet to be announced. DESTINYbit is embracing an open development philosophy by periodically releasing devlogs and streaming development 3 times a week on their Twitch channel.
Empires Apart has been in development since March of 2015 and is expecting a late 2016 release for PC and Mac.
