Release date: Early 2016
A sandbox game in an open fantasy persistent world with real time tactical battles, strategy, empire management. Endless possibilities.

Players assume the role of a General, command massive armies and free roam in a world where individuals and empires scheme for power and dominance. It is a world which never sleeps, as everything is happening in real time, and where decisions and actions of players have a direct effect.


Recruit from a wide variety of unit types, heroes, engines and races to form your armies. Each race has its own unique roster of units and heroes with unique stats, special abilities and spells.

Generals, Armies and Guilds have different skill trees with various upgradeable skills, providing true specialization.

Customize your army and heroes with different skins and warbanners to create your unique custom army.


Free Roam in a massive open world map in real time where Empires control regions and antagonize over land and resources. Interact freely with the environment but beware of other AI/player armies, which may not be that friendly!

Do you want to become a General who provides his services to the highest bidder, or perhaps simply pillage and raid cities and trading caravans to amass a fortune? Do you want to take part in the politics and schemes of the world? How about forming a Guild or join an existing one, to conquer Regions in an effort to create an Empire? In Empyrean Rule, only YOU decide what life you want to live and your decisions WILL affect the world.

The game world economy is player-driven and all items and products in the game can be produced by players. There is no abundance of raw materials and products, and players’ actions directly affect the economy. (Supply & Demand, Monopolies, Economic Wars, Resource Wars, etc.)


In-depth battle mechanics (FOW, Line of Sight, Friendly Fire, Morale, Ground Elevation, Flanks, Endurance, Weather Effects, etc.)

Random generated battlefields. No battlefield is the same. Take advantage of your surroundings to get the upper hand in a battle.

Player vs Environment in Single or Cooperative battles - Player vs Player battles. Battles as big as 30 vs 30 players! Depending on the circumstances under which a battle was initiated, there are different battle modes such as Total Annihilation, Survival, Conquer Objectives, Destroy / Protect a Target and of course Sieges.


Players seeking more power can form or join a Guild consisted of other players. Become a Mercenary Guild, raid, lay siege to cities and fortresses, or conquer and own Regions to create an Empire in a persistent world!

Guilds owning Regions can fully manage them with absolute control over production, infrastructure improvements and regional upgrades (eg. ore deposits, cities, special buildings, fortresses, watchtowers, AI regional armies, etc.). They also have access to many other kingdom functions such as trading, diplomacy and espionage.

-An online persistent world where players are free to make their own decisions and their decisions forge the world - NON linear gameplay

-Custom made fantasy armies with heroes, different unit types, monsters, flying units, engines with unique special abilities and/or spells, offering thus thousands of synergies

-In-depth battle mechanics where skill determines the victor on the battlefield - SIngle, COOP, PVP

-A sandbox experience with schemes, politics, trading, diplomacy, espionage in a world of thousands of opportunities

-Player-driven economy - Combine raw materials to produce final products (Supply & Demand, Monopolies, Economic & Resource Wars)
