King Arthur Collection Announced

Paradox Interactive invites gamers to dust off their armor one more time and prepare for the ultimate King Arthur experience with the newly announced King Arthur Collection, available in late May 2011. To celebrate, an announcement trailer has been released!

This brand new product will include the original King Arthur game, as well as both The Saxons and The Druids expansions, in one magnificent package that would even make the Lady of the Lake think twice about trading Excalibur for it. From building up armies to slaying mystical beasts, this collection will transport players back to the time of Merlin and Sir Lancelot as they battle their way through an engaging campaign mode that challenges them to prove that Arthur is the Once and Future King of prophecies.

The King Arthur Collection includes:

  • King Arthur: The Role-playing Game
  • The Saxons expansion
  • The Druids expansion
  • Knights and Vassals DLC
  • Legendary Artifacts DLC

Features include:

  • Real-time fantasy battles: Engage in spectacular fights featuring thousands of soldiers and renowned heroes, such as Sir Lancelot and Merlin.
  • Turn-based campaign map: Britannia is represented as a three- dimensional topographic map.
  • Create your own legend: The saga of King Arthur, an epic tale about the conquest of Britannia, is told through a story-based campaign.
  • Morality Chart: Every decision you make in the game will influence King Arthur’s position on the Morality Chart. These choices unlock special content, allies, heroes, units, and developments.
  • RPG elements: Heroes learn skills, spells, and abilities. They can also use magic items or become liege lords, entrusted with the leadership of a province.

If he isn't playing one of those, you'll probably find him in a role-playing game instead. He's definitely not afraid to provide a straight up opinion on any game and has a strong like for indie developers. We all start small, after all.
