King Arthur is an empire-building strategy game set in a medieval, mystical Britain where you will play the role of legendary Arthur, the Once and Future King. You build Camelot, enlist the Knights of the Round Table, unite the country and ultimately challenge the powers threatening the essence of all their previous endeavors. You choose their own path, be it the way of virtuous glory, the might of the Sidhe or your wish to succumb to the dark powers.
King Arthur's Britannia, though rooted in the actual historical past, is an innovative mixture of medieval chivalry, fantasy and myth. Its background, a mythical Dark Age Britain is an amalgamation of different cultures, tribes and petty kingdoms constantly on the brink of war, when the appearance of Merlin changes the order of nature and his protegée, Arthur upsets the balance and the flow of history with his very presence.
King Arthur, unlike similar games that concentrate on empire building, is a game where you can manage the Arthurian mythology itself: incorporating the management of the realm, the legendary Britain, the heroes, the adventures and the morality of the characters into the gameplay. There is no set alignment for the king: the decisions made by you define and shape Arthur's character.
Lead hundreds of brave warriors on the magnificent battlefields of Britannia! King Arthur incorporates strategy as its most important element and offers such long-term game experience that makes the overall enjoyment similar to that provided by empire building strategies. Arthur's main objective is to conquer all 40 provinces of Britain, build grandiose medieval cities and unite the kingdom with his Knights of the Round Table. These heroes can be assigned to adventures, they participate in battles as unique units and they indirectly influence the life of the provinces.
