Ancestors Legacy is a real-time strategy game inspired by historical events during the Middle Ages. The game combines resource management, base building, and squad-based battles, in what the developers call an expansive experience. A highlight of the game appears to be the cinematic action camera that puts you right in the middle of the battle with the press of a button.
The goal of Ancestors Legacy is to take command of your army as you storm through medieval Europe in a series of campaigns. There are a couple of nations to choose from so you can play as either the Vikings, Anglo-Saxons, Germans or Slavs. Staying true to the Middle Ages, you go around raiding and pillaging enemy camps, villages, and other settlements. You have to use all of the tools and units at your disposal to conquer the land and establish your dominance for years to come. Ancestors Legacy also features a multiplayer component if you want a greater challenge against other players.
It's great to see the developer offering what appear to be a lot of enhancements for Xbox One X owners. Hopefully, this will be the case when the game launches over the summer, barring any changes.
Ancestors Legacy is currently an Xbox One console exclusive and the decision to only release it only on Xbox One and PC came down to ease of development. When asked about the decision, Gop said the following.
Hopefully Ancestors Legacy will be a polished and addictive real-time strategy experience when it releases on May 22 for Xbox One and PC. The developers is even considering cross-play support.
