Codemasters ressurect a cult classic with Overlord: Fellowship of Evil

22

Codemasters are set to hit Xbox One with a top-down action RPG based on the Overlord franchise.

Codemasters are a UK based studio who enjoy an incredibly rich history. Perhaps most famous for various racing games, such as DiRT and Colin McRae Rally, but Codemasters have also turned their hand to other genres.

Overlord was a third person action RPG, which tasked players to take control of an Overlord, and micro-manage an army of minions with various abilities. Overlord for me always carried a very Fable-esque vibe, featuring very British tongue in cheek humour, a morality metagame and a rich colour pallet.

Overlord: Fellowship of Evil will sport elements of the cult classic Xbox 360 games of yesteryear, with some significant gameplay revisions.

Everything you need to know about alliance wars in Royal Revolt 2

51

Royal Revolt 2 from Flare Games is one of the best raiding games on Windows Phone and Windows 8. Whereas most raiding games feature somewhat casual strategic attacks on opponents, Flare's take goes a different direction. Every raid is full of action, with the player directly running through other players' levels and attacking their troops and defenses head-on. I've been playing it daily for over a year, which speaks to its amazing addictiveness and fun factor.

Earlier this week we reported that Royal Revolt 2 had been updated to support Alliance Wars, an exciting new feature. Alliance Wars have finally gone live, and the Windows Central Alliance is right in the thick of things. Read on to learn how Alliance Wars work and find out how you can join our site's official alliance!
