Description
Release date: 2018 (2017 Early Access)
Grounds of Glory is a player versus player arena based game, set in a fantasy world. The combat system is tactical, promoting positioning, teamwork and correct skill use. Join up with other players to achieve glory in arenas and battlegrounds.



Grounds of Glory is being built in Unreal Engine 4 and will be released for PC.

Official website: Grounds of Glory[groundsofglory.net]

GAMEPLAY FEATURES

DESTRUCTIBLE ELEMENTS
Some elements in the arena can be destroyed, thus changing the battlefield and altering strategies. If a pillar is in your way, destroy it!

PROPER PROJECTILE COLLISION
When a projectile is in the air flying towards you, hide behind a rock or a pillar to avoid the damage. Furthermore, your allies can body block the projectile and take the damage instead of you.



BALANCED TACTICAL COMBAT
Devise a plan to defeat the enemy team. Use a combination of tools at your disposal. Crowd control the enemy healer while damaging the other opponent, coordinate Mage’s burst with Fighter’s stun, tank the damage when you activated your defensive abilities. We have been balancing the combat for the last two years and we can say that almost any team combination is good. Pair Stargazer with huge burst damage potential and an Assassin that can set up long stuns to overpower, or defensive Templar with a Healer to outlast your enemies.

REACTIVE GAMEPLAY
React to the enemy abilities while they are in animation. For example, dodge the Fighter’s stun by flashing away as a Mage or by jumping to the Spirit Dimension.



PLAY WHAT SUITS YOU
At the moment, the game has three distinct classes: Fighter[groundsofglory.net], Mage[groundsofglory.net] and Healer[groundsofglory.net]. We are planning to add more classes before the game is released. Each class has three different specializations that allow you to alter your gameplay by choosing active bonuses (masteries) and improving/replacing certain skills (talents). All classes and specializations are viable if you master them!

RANKED/UNRANKED ARENA & BATTLEGROUND MODES
Join a queue and fight against other players or AI. We support dueling, 2v2, 3v3 and battleground modes, both unranked and ranked play. Are you alone and want to play with someone? We’ve got you covered – use the supported solo-queue option. All games use proper matchmaking with the games hosted on dedicated servers for minimum lag and stable experience.



CREATE YOUR CHARACTER & ACQUIRE NEW GEAR AND OTHER REWARDS
We currently provide character customization with color selection, morphs to change the shape of your face, tattoos and (limited) hair styles, but are planning to add a lot more. There is no gender lock – you can play female and male variants of every class. You level up and obtain gold and gems when playing against others – use it to buy new weapons, shiny gear, flags, change how your spells look, change your avatar etc…



PROGRESSION, END GAME & SEASONS
When you level up and acquire all the abilities, masteries and talents, the game has just begun. There will be tournaments, seasons with unique gear sets and other enhancments to the game. Some rewards are reserved only for the best: participate in ranked modes to obtain titles and epic cloaks that make you stand out.



CUSTOMIZE YOUR USER INTERFACE & SETTINGS
Everything is in place for competitive PvP. We provide a wide array of user interface options that allow you to re-position and scale widgets, as well as to enable certain features. Enemy cooldown timers, frames for easier targeting, focus frames and more are all already included in the wide arsenal.

MATCH REPLAY
Replay your matches to improve yourself. View the match as a spectator or as any of the players, rewind, use slow motion or pause to better see what went wrong (or right).

HIGHLY OPTIMIZED
We are aware that not everyone has a gaming computer. With that in mind, we optimized Grounds of Glory to run on 660 GTX (HD7870) at 60 FPS or more on high settings. This means that you can play it on most laptops with dedicated graphics card as well.

This game is exactly what I've been looking for since WoW went bad. Cannot wait for this to be released.

Always nice to see strategy RPGs! Haven't seen one that looks to be real-time yet though.

We are running the Game Development World Championship and would like to see you participate. It's good for your visibility and won't cost you a penny.

You can check it out at www.thegdwc.com .

Good luck with the development!

There are not many good "player versus player arena based games" out there and this one has so much potential. I cannot wait for this game to come out. :senpai:

Exactly what I was looking for... I have no time to stay competitive in wow arena and no desire to play any pve. Plus the body blocking and unhealable looks amazing.
