Big Week for Swords & Soldiers!
Swords & Soldiers lands on PC & Mac, gets Move support & new demo on PS3
UTRECHT, THE NETHERLANDS – December 1, 2010 This week the armies of Swords & Soldiers bring their tactical action gameplay to different shores yet again! After duking it out on the pearly white beaches of the WiiWare service the brutal Vikings, the vicious Aztecs and the devious Chinese arrived last month at the pitch black moutains of the awe-inpsiring PlayStation®3 system. Infusing the game with a new innovative online mode and eye-poking HD & 3D graphics the PS3 version exposed console gamers to the glory of cartoon warfare in a way never before seen on this planet. And now the Swords & Axes have been sharpened to do it all over again: Swords & Soldiers has arrived on PC & Mac! So now the everlasting wars are no longer contained to the living room. Featuring the same 30 level single player campaign, customisable skirmishes, 3 highscore bonus games and Steam powered online functionality, the PC version has every bit of brawn as the PS3 version. So support us by buying it from our store (http://ronimo-games.com/SwordsAndSoldiers/html/store.html) or get it from Steam! Both routes will get you the Steam enabled version which can then be installed on Windows as well as OSX.
But PS3 owners aren’t left out in the cold, as they shouldn’t be these days. Because this week, we added Move support to the PS3 version. Ever since Sony showed a cursor supporting controller and we announced that we’d be porting our cursor-based game to the system, people have been doing the math. And we’ve reached the same conclusion: Swords & Soldiers should support the Move. So now it does! Our office has seen lots of battles trying to determine the definite control setup, but we’re still undecided. So give them both a solid try, and let us know which setup has you preference!
Finally, we’ve also updated the demo on PSN. Apart from adding Move support, it now has some later levels from the game to give players a better taste of what Swords & Soldiers is all about. So if you haven’t checked out the demo or felt the first version was a bit too easy or missed Move support, go check out the new version!
