July 15, 2015 Written by Jason Dunning

A real-time strategy game from Kalypso Media and developer Gaming Minds, Grand Ages: Medieval is releasing on September 25 in Europe and September 29 in North America for the PlayStation 4 and PC.

Set in the High Middle Ages, Grand Ages: Medieval features a game world of over 20 million square kilometres in 1080p.

In addition to a single player campaign, you’ll also find an 8-player multiplayer mode. As Creative Director Daniel Dumont explained, “A cool and unique feature of our multiplayer is that you’ll be able to set commands and protocols that let you take breaks from multiplayer without ever having to leave the game.” However, he adds that you should use this feature sparingly, as you may come back to see your own defeat.

You can check out how to play Grand Ages: Medieval in the trailer above, with full game details below:

It is the year 1050 AD.
