Call your fellow countrymen to arms and conquer the known lands
Raise your shields and spears, do not let the enemy through your ranks
Expand your empire and become the ruler of the entire continent
Play as one of the seven currently available factions - Koreans, Aztecs, Mongols, Arabs, Chinese, French or Byzantines, and build your medieval-themed empire from the ground up in this free-to-play classic RTS, Empires Apart! Set up your base, build military and economic structures, utilize your faction's unique military tech, and conquer your opponents!
The objective of this game is to take control of the map and become the ruling power of that region. There are three main types of structures that you can build, economy, war, and defense. From these, there is a large variety of structures that you can build to create a settlement and send your army to conquer the enemy bases. Economy structures are buildings such as houses, farms, and the marketplace. For military options, war structures allow you to build barracks, archery range, and stables. To safeguard your base, you can build gates and walls from the defense structures.
First of all, you will need a town center where you can train villagers. Villagers are the most vital components of a settlement, in charge of gathering food, wood, and stone as resources. These resources are then used to train additional units and build more structures to expand your settlement. Keep in mind that there is a population cap based on how many town centers you have, so construct additional town centers to raise the limit.
This game is as much about war as it is about the economy. Build barracks and other war structures to train spearmen, archers and knights which are vital to protecting your settlement, as well as invading the enemies’ bases. At the same time, you should constantly keep up a good trading system with your allies using the marketplace, and sending merchants out to trade in safe or neutral markets to ensure that the economy of your base can thrive.
Train priests at temples to collect ancient relics for huge bonuses. You can also gain control of a hero unit of a specific faction. Hero units are particularly strong and have special abilities to use that can turn the tide of battle into your favor. On a side note, ordering multiple villagers to a building under construction will speed up the process.
Increasing civilization development level unlock new units and buildings to improve your settlement. These require a hefty amount of resources, so be sure you are well stocked before upgrading. Likewise, you can also increase your military development level to unlock new units and buildings for war.
Do note that if you are playing the free version from Steam, you will only be able to use the Byzantines for skirmishes and ranked matches online. The in-game store allows you to purchase loot boxes and cosmetics using real-world currency.
