This is the Hundred Years War. Each man must stand tall. Each man’s mettle will be tested. But amongst all men there are leaders, there are those who will not be cowed. Can you be that leader? In this epic strategy RPG you will lead your army through the greatest of medieval wars and make history live again.
In History® Great Battles Medieval you take command as a general in control of English or French forces during the Hundred Years War. As the English you will fight under the Black Prince, Henry V and other heroic characters from history, and as the French you fight for the famous Joan of Arc and the King.
The game has a free form quest map that allows players to decide when and where to fight within a historical framework. Weapons and shields are added to each unit by the player, meaning an almost infinite number of equipment combinations are possible. Every equipment change modifies the appearance of the models. Never before has this kind of customization been possible on such a scale. Animations and behavior change to match the equipment you have allocated.
