Siegecraft Commander, the action strategy hybrid from Blowfish Studios where players create a network of fortresses by launching buildings from catapults while attacking to topple enemy bases, is available now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, and HTC Vive. A free update adding support for PlayStation VR as well as separate Oculus Rift and NVIDIA Shield 2 versions will arrive at a later date.
Commanders create a web of interlinked offensive and defensive towers to fortify their home base, cross the battlefield and reduce enemy central posts to rubble. Players are free to design a sprawling network, but their towers must all remain linked to their base. If a structure in a chain is destroyed, everything disconnected from the base in that chain also falls.
Siegecraft Commander supports cross-platform multiplayer for 2-4 players between PlayStation 4 and PC as well as Xbox One to PC. Players can also opt for a birds-eye view of the battlefield by using a VR headset with a traditional gamepad or VR-supplementing motion controllers.
Multiplayer matches can be played as tactical turn-based or action-packed RTS battles. The single player campaign features a real-time war between a band of defense-focused knights and a tribe of offense-oriented Lizardmen.
Siegecraft Commander is available for $19.99 on Steam, the Humble Store, PlayStation Store and Xbox Store with a 30% launch discount in most stores. The game features full English voice work and subtitles.
