Grand Ages: Medieval

The second entry in the Grand Ages series and the first to appear on console, the real-time strategy game is set in the High Middle Ages. It begins in the year 1050 A.D. and puts players in the role of a mayor governing a small European settlement. Your goal is to lead your people through the decades by expanding your trade routes and influence, and eventually conquering all of Europe.

The game will feature an eight-player multiplayer mode separate from the main campaign. It will let you set commands and protocols that let you take breaks from multiplayer without ever having to leave the game, which is a neat feature for playing with and against friends in other time zones.
