The Plague: Kingdom Wars
Release: July 10
Developer: Reverie World Studios
Price: $19.99 | £15.49 | AU$28.95
The next instalment in the long-running Kingdom Wars series is a timely RTS / grand strategy hybrid focused on managing your kingdom during the black death plague of the 1300s. As either a minor lord or king you’ll need to bolster your society, keep it happy, defend it, and inevitably go to war with other nations.
