Developer Diary: Kingdom Wars
Dawn of Fantasy publisher 505 Games has released a second video diary of the game earlier today, this time showcasing the game's innovative single-player adventure mode, Kingdom Wars, with new in-game footage and narration from the team at Reverie World Studios as well as a sneak-peak of some of the game's voice-overs currently being scripted into the game.

After watching the video, head on over to our Media Fair forum for more information and screenshots on this exciting game mode!

Los Angeles, CA - May 18, 2011 - In Dawn of Fantasy's second developer diary, Assistant Producer and Lead Writer Gordon Farrell is back to guide viewers through another game mode - this time with the help of Arielle Parkas, Assistant Voice-Over Director and Voice Actor for several elven characters. The captivating duo takes players through Dawn of Fantasy's innovative 'Kingdom Wars' game mode.

Kingdom Wars is an exclusively single-player Conquer-the-World style campaign mode with a mix of Skirmish and MMORTS gameplay elements to create a new, action-packed experience. This game mode takes the epic siege warfare, continuous army progression, army construction, and World Map from the massively multiplayer Online Kingdom mode and pairs it with an intelligent and aggressive AI, improved diplomacy features, and the ability to control conquered strongholds. At the same time, Kingdom Wars leaves out select Online Kingdom mode elements including city construction, advanced economic micromanagement, and story-driven quests to promote fast-paced action at every turn.

While introducing the Kingdom Wars mode, Gordon and Arielle detail key elements including World Map interaction, stronghold and economic management specific to KW, diplomacy, army camps, and epic stronghold sieges. The pair discusses some of their favorite features, with their competing biases thrown in for good measure. Viewers are in for a definite treat, as Gordon and Arielle take players to exotic locations never-before-seen in video, such as the dwarven mines where the player can stock up on gold reserves.

Developer Diary #2: Kingdom Wars

The three great realms of Mythador await a unifying leader... Will you step up to the challenge? Stay tuned for the third developer diary, which will show off Dawn of Fantasy's premier game mode, the story-driven massively multiplayer 'Online Kingdom' campaign!

Awww! I was all:
Noooo! dont end i Need! to see how it ends
Rofl, the siege fight looked like so much fun too.

I really love all the different layers on these maps, it really showed in that map in the mines, looked pretty epic. If they had of rushed all down that path, they woulda been cut off from the upper region were the ranged units were. It isnt all a flat map, all sorts of vantage points, very nice.

Aww it looks so pretty too
So close now cant wait. :)
