The Official Battle Realms Community Manager, Komikoza or known as Des just announce to his Facebook Page Battle Realms 2 – Lair of the Lotus that the original Battle Realms Winter of the Wolf will be coming to Steam as EARLY ACCESS this December 3, 2019.
Komikoza is one of the page admin of the Official Battle Realms’ Reddit and wiki page in Fandom.
RTS genre was one of the hittest games way back in 1998, it follows the success of Starcraft, Red Alert 2, Battle Realms and Warcraft III (where the game Dota originated). It slowly lost its popularity after the new waves of genres emerged in the gaming scene, like the first-person shooter, MMORPG, and other online games. Right now, the genre is slowly making a comeback, in fact, a new game was also revealed this week, the Age of Empire IV.
Battle Realms is set in a strong Japanese culture theme, where players will be playing as Kenji Oja, a zen master of the Dragon Clan and Serpent Clan. It has two different single-player campaign which requires Kenji to choose which side of the clan he will take, either the Dragon or Serpent Clan. Both clans have a common enemy, the Lotus Clan, remnants of older clan devastated by the Horde that tries to conquer the world of Battle Realms. The game also comes with an offline skirmish mode where you can play in a 4-player match with a local player or an AI.
Different from the GOG version, the EARLY ACCESS of Battle Realms Winter of Wolf will have a fully functional online multiplayer. However, we don’t have yet information if the online multiplayer they will be using is the Remote Play Together of steam or they have their own dedicated server.
They also mentioned that Ed Del Castillo, creator of the game and founder of Liquid Entertainment will soon make an announcement to confirm the game launch.
Right now, the game is still being reviewed by Steam and will be up as soon it gets approved. They also have a plan to relaunch their official website battlerealms.com with new content about the game.
