Slitherine and DESTINYbit are working together on a new RTS game called Empires Apart that's set in Medieval times and will be released this Winter on the PC.
Empires Apart will see you lead one of six factions in procedurally generated maps, with the gameplay looking a bit like Age of Empires or Battle Realms, as you collect resources, assemble your army and wage war against other factions such as the Aztecs, Chinese, French, Mongols, Arabs or Byzantines.
You can find more games like Empires Apart on our list of Upcoming PC Games.
We'll find out this winter if Empires Apart ends up on our list of The Best Strategy Games on PC!
In fact this really does sound a lot like Age of Empires, so we're excited about checking it out soon, as you must collect Food, Wood, Gold and Stone to build your economic structures and military might, while trading with allies and storing relics for powerful bonuses.
The good news is that you won't have long to play it if you're accepted into the beta phase, which has just started today. You can sign-up here.
Empires Apart will be released for the PC this winter.
