Action RPG Empire of Ember Announced
Independent developer Poleaxe Games has announced action RPG Empire of Ember. The game is a first-person title with melee, ranged, and magical combat, as well as destructible environments and light RTS elements. It is currently being developed for PC and expected to release in summer 2021.
In Empire of Ember, players control a former wizard’s apprentice after their home city is razed in a surprise attack during which their master is killed. Taking charge, players can rebuild the city and rule it, leading armies into battles involving up to a hundred units. Players are able to design and decorate their city, with an asynchronous multiplayer mode letting them download and attempt to assault other players’ cities. There are also procedurally-generated dungeons to explore.
