Undecima is a new online browser multiplayer strategy game developed by a man named Mik for six years. Undecima launched on the 1st of June with the game’s Open Beta mode.
In short, in Undecima, you start in a small village, develop it to a big prosperous town. Along the way you will complete a lot of upgrades and researches, advance through levels, and on the final one, capture a super powerful artifact! If you are able to hold the artifact for three days, victory will be yours!
Some other interesting features of the game are:
– Simple but efficient combat mode (e.g. you can scout, attack, defend, counter-attack, intercept, dodge, and reinforce your friends and enemies).
– Lack of annoying macro-management. You have plenty of upgrades and researches to do, but can control only one town.
– All units from very basic to elite have a set of abilities and skills that makes them unique in the game and useful in particular situations.
– Ability to play either PvP or PvE or mix it at the same time. For example theoretically, you can finish the game without attacking another player (not sure if it’s going to be fun though).
– Plenty of rewards, such as weekly ranking, overall ranks, medals, achievements and more.
– The game is addictive, but doesn’t take up all of your time (here I’m not sure whether it’s a good point or bad).

InnoGames offers players the chance to explore an exotic fantasy world with their new city-builder game: Elvenar – The latest, strategy-MMO title was announced today with details about the game. The German developer is treading on uncommon ground with Elvenar as players have to create a flourishing city and choose between Elves or Humans as a starting race. The games’ focus lies on building and upgrading a city, but players also trade, explore the world map or have strategic turn-based fights on a 3D battlefield. Elvenar will start in the browser; mobile versions are planned. The game’s closed beta is expected to start in January 2015.
The choice between Elves and Humans influences the way the players’ cities and inhabitants look and which technologies and units are at their disposal. The Elves live and breathe magic and exist in close harmony with nature, whereas Humans are ambitious and determined engineers. “You will see some of the elvish buildings really come alive with lots of fantastical beings, like ents and golems co-existing peacefully in their cities”, explains Ulrike Kunkel, Producer of Elvenar. “The Humans on the other hand are a more technologically determined society, they focus on engineering to prevail. Our goal was to create differences in visuals and play style that make players want to try out both races at some point”, Kunkel adds.
Between managing resources, levelling up buildings and unlocking new perks, players should also pay attention to the multiplayer map. There they can interact with neighbors, scout new provinces and unlock various powerful relics by fighting NPCs. Fights take place on various battlegrounds. The strategic battles are 3D-animated, with up to 20 different monsters and unit types, which make each encounter unique and tactically deep.

Experience points are given for taking down enemy drones, destroying defensive towers, completing missions as well as wiping out enemy players. These points enable individual players to unlock ability-increasing items and to determine which items will be used in a match from their stash of items (Loadout system).

Ravenmarch: Empire in Flames is a new MMORTS game from Kabam. It is a city-building, strategy management type game set in a fictional medieval setting. The main goal in the game, as with most in this genre, is to raise a powerful army and to establish a dominance over your foes. The game relies on economic development of your city, strategic planning in both building and battling and social interaction amongst friendly units.
Stormfall is a take on the classic city-building, city-management game. Unfortunately it doesn’t break away enough from the pack to make it a standout game that would usher in a huge player-base. But the game is by all means, a decent play. So let’s get into it. Stormfall: Age of War pits you into the middle of a race for land between several warlords after a kingdom has fallen. As a player in the game you must restore the peace and build up your army to keep it that way.
As with many games in the genre, you start out with a small kingdom and have to build up your castle, army and resources in order to get more and more powerful. One thing that Stormfall does that many other MMORTS games doesn’t, is engross you in a story about how the world came to be this way, and how you can help it return. The game does have voice-overs for many quests, which can be sort of hit-or-miss. In the end you’ll end up doing a lot of sitting and waiting while you build up your army to prepare for your enemies and/or to attack them.
