bitComposer has today revealed the first official screenshots for the forthcoming Citadels, an upcoming strategy videogame that invites players to experience a new take on the legend of King Arthur. Players of Citadels must maintain their defences against enemy onslaughts in both single-player and multiplayer gameplay modes.
Citadels takes the player away to the legendary world of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. There are, however, dark powers plotting to dethrone Arthur and seize power themselves. A gigantic army of Saxons and Norsemen has already assembled before the very gates of Camelot, ready to attack at any moment. Running out of options, Arthur undertakes a last desperate attempt to defend his kingdom.
Players will construct impregnable fortresses, and defend them with troops and traps. Your strategy will determine whether you achieve victory or suffer defeat. However, a castle alone does not ensure victory: the right combination of fortifications and units, as well as resource extraction and production, is decisive in determining the outcome of battles.
Currently in development exclusively for PC, Citadels is expected to be made available in spring 2013. Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details on Citadels and other forthcoming titles from bitComposer.
