‘BLADESTORM: NIGHTMARE’ to be released across Europe on 6th March 2015
Koei Tecmo announced today that historical Troop Command Action title ‘Bladestorm: Nightmare’, will be unleashed across Europe on 6 March 2015 on the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft. There will also be a PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system digital only version available at the same time.
‘Bladestorm: Nightmare’ is a strategy game where the player takes the role of a mercenary and chooses to fight either for England or for France in missions inspired by real events and battles of the era dubbed ‘the Hundred Years War’(1337-1453). Revisiting one of the lengthiest and most politically unstable periods in European history, Omega Force has developed this title in a way that allows the player to assume command of different kinds of army units, while it also offers them the opportunity to develop their own unique character, increase their fame, gold, and army and complete various missions irrespective of sides and loyalty.
Aside from the main mode’s educational value (it accurately follows the events as they unfolded), ‘Bladestorm’ will also include a stand-alone mode called ‘Nightmare’, which features an original, fictional scenario.
In ‘Nightmare’, as the war between England and France wages on as a mysterious battle horde of outlandish creatures appears led by a seemingly turned-evil Joan of Arc. The army is comprised of Dragons, Giants and Demons of various kinds and infinite numbers and the kingdoms of England and France momentarily cease fire and join forces to drive this evil out of the world.
This new mode allows the player to take control of an additional 32 playable characters, based both on fictional and prominent historical figures of the time. With their assistance the player’s character can try and control the demonic armies, restore Joan of Arc to her former self and save the world from evil.
This fun new twist diversifies the classic strategy elements of the game, and effectively splits ‘Bladestorm: Nightmare’ into two parts; ‘Bladestorm’: the historically accurate account of the 100 Years’ War, and ‘Nightmare’: a fictional fantasy scenario that unfolds in the same world.
