Several new reviews are available December 13, 2011

"Real Warfare 2: Northern Crusades, and rightfully so based on its name, was forged to wage war and so it is on the field of battle where its strength will be found."

Gamers Daily News - 7.5 out of 10

"Due to its largely open nature (even if it can be a bit of a grind to get the most benefit out of side-missions) and an impressive multiplayer skirmish mode that allows for up to six-way battles across massive playing fields, Real Warfare 2: Northern Crusades is a worthy addition to the strategy genre."

Brash Games - 7 out of 10

"Real Warfare is a fantastic RTS whose artificial intelligence and unit customisation marks it as something above the norm."

Playing Real Warfare 1242? Look here! November 16, 2011

Customers who pre-purchased Real Warfare 2: Northern Crusades also received the previous game in the series, Real Warfare: 1242, for free. It offers various tactical battles, but doesn't have the strategic mode available in RW2.

They are playing it right now and we received a number of questions regarding best tactics in a given mission, so we published the new article describing one of the possble tactical solutions for the second battle of Real Warfare: 1242 - Skirmish with Mongols. It is available in our Articles section (Tactics sample).

Please also remember that Real Warfare 2: Northern Crusades is much more flexible in terms of difficulty, offering the strategic mode and sandbox campaign, meaning that in most cases you can choose which battles you fight and when, as well as you can improve your army beforehand. If a battle looks too difficult, you can choose different course of action or go for more easy prey first.

Real Warfare 2: Northern Crusades helps players witness the key events in the history of the Teutonic Order in 13th century, namely conquering the pagan Prussia.

All battles form a single storyline campaign. The player will act as a Komtur of the Teutonic Order as they relive the battles of the crusaders, regardless of the low manpower of the Order and the strong resistance of the heathens. The project perfectly comprises two types of gameplay and owing to that the objectives of the Komtur are not simply limited to participation in battles. The strategic map involves the gamer into a colorful and integral world and allows them to travel around the map in the real time. The mode features full freedom of movement, dialogues with locals, RPG elements, quest system and much more. However, sooner or later, the players will have no other choice other than engage their faithful warriors into a battle. And this could be a combat with other armies, large-scale sieges of towns and castles, using various special assault weaponry and tools and fight right on top the walls and fortifications.
