Paradox today announced the King Arthur Collection. I played the original game — it’s like a Total War game in the time of mythical Britannia. It was also freaking hard. I can’t speak to the expansions and the DLC packs, but if anyone did play these let me know. If the campaign wasn’t so brutal I’d have played it more as I liked the basic design quite a bit.
The King Arthur Collection includes:
King Arthur: The Role-playing Game
The Saxons expansion
The Druids expansion
Knights and Vassals DLC
Legendary Artifacts DLC
• Real-time fantasy battles: Engage in battles featuring thousands of soldiers and renowned heroes, such as Sir Lancelot and Merlin.
• Turn-based campaign map: Britannia is represented as a three- dimensional topographic map.
• Create your own legend: The saga of King Arthur, an epic tale about the conquest of Britannia, is told through a story-based campaign.
• Morality Chart: Every decision you make in the game will influence King Arthur’s position on the Morality Chart. These choices unlock special content, allies, heroes, units, and developments.
• RPG elements: Heroes learn skills, spells, and abilities. They can also use magic items or become liege lords, entrusted with the leadership of a province.
The pack is set for a late May release.
