Of Kings and Men Free Download game
After a long wait and a failed kickstarter campaign Donkey Crew’s Braveheart simulator “Of Kings and Men” is finally in early access. Or “pre-early access”, as it is called on the site, whereby it is not clear what the difference is. Of Kings and Men plays in the 13th century and is a multiplayer PvP-Metzelfest. Players take on the role of knights who act as human lawn mowers to gain weight from the arguments of the various contending factions. The game promises huge battles and a sophisticated combat system and it plays like a kind of Call of Duty with swords and horses instead of machine guns and explosives. Or a simulator, where you can be William Wallace for a day – on a very bad day for William.
Description of the game
The title “pre-early access” for Kings and Men made me think of some kind of accident but I’m glad to say that it is not. It definitely needs a lot of fine work and some adjustments here and there but the game ran very smoothly and I got a good taste for what Donkey Crew would like to serve us. Of Kings and Men is a nice change to hectic PvP shooters, where you are usually sneaked away from a soccer field away from any 14-year-old who knows all the spawn points.
Story of game
There are currently three game modes (more are announced) for early access players: InstantBattle, Conquest, and Deathmatch. No matter which mode you choose, the servers are pleasantly full (at least while I was playing), and the packed battlefields have pushed the excitement a lot. The terrain is open and crowded at the same time: there would be plenty of room for movement, if there were not around 150 other players who are fighting around you in their hand.
Successes in combat bring silver as well as steps, with which one buys and upgrades weapons and armor. Through this, and through the spheres of influence that can be fought and defended, this open slaughter becomes even more exciting and preserves the game from becoming a day-fly. Traveling through the landscape with a horde of wild animals makes for a heathen passport and feels so good with a dangerous, hard-won blade.
