*About BLADESTORM: The Hundred Years' War*
In the 14th century a quarrel over English succession to the French
throne escalated into what history would call the Hundred Years' War.
This ongoing war had exhausted the standing armies of both sides and
there was a growing dependence on mercenary soldiers.
Taking the role of a mercenary soldier, players must contract their
services to the English or French; with the ultimate goal of achieving
glorious fame and fortune. Those who establish a reputation as a
formidable warrior and leader of men, will amass a valuable war chest
and lure hardened warriors to their employ.
As arrows rain from above, knights charge on horseback, and cannoniers
fire volleys at heavy infantry, armies will collide in unprecedented
scale. Players will be immersed in ferocious battles where an innovative
action style enables them to defeat countless numbers of soldiers with
one cleverly chosen attack command. Outwit your opponents and overwhelm
the enemy with dominating force to be the last one standing when the
dust settles on one of history's greatest conflicts.
