Default Great Battles Medieval iPad (Slitherine)

Hi guys

in another thread someone asked about this game for iPad. The game is approaching beta and we expect to release some time in June. It is already available Android, PC, X360 and PS3.



The game is a Role Playing Strategy game set during the Hundred Years War where you take your army with you through many battles, gaining experience and equipping them. Key battles are introduced by movies for a really absorbing experience. Select missions from the quest map and in battle issue orders in pause time and then start the battle and see things fight out in real time. You can pause at any time to issue new orders. The battlefield is grid based to make selection easier and avoid the issues of RTS clickfest.

For a detailed over go here.

Features:
  • Free form quest map that allows players to decide when and where to fight within a historical framework.
  • More than 20 different units all accurately researched and carefully modeled in amazing detail.
  • Almost infinite number of equipment combinations.
  • Specialise your squads with over 100 unique skills.
  • Play as the English under the Black Prince.
  • Innovative Battle Card system that gives bonuses and penalties in battle.
  • The most detailed and realistic medieval combat model ever created.

These screenshots are from the Android version but we'll update when we have the iPad screens. We expect it to look at least as good but almost certainly better, especially on the latter iPads.

Default Hell yes!!

Thank you Slitherine!!

Can't wait to get the next best game on the iPad ...next to Battle Academy of course!

I am going to go ahead and pick up the XBOX version but will still get the iPad version as well.

Will there be cross-platform play in any form?

This game looks great on Android!! can't wait to see what ipad 3 screenshot looks like!!, will it come with retina display from day one?
As a non pc gamer and drifting away from the console scene it's good to see some qaulity stragety games heading to IOS.
Day one purchase for me as I've never played a medieval stragety before, what with this Battle Academy and Panzer Corps coming up it's looking to good to be an ipad gamer

There is no multiplayer in this one - its all about the single player campaign.

There is multiplayer on 360/PS3 and PC buts its head to head live connections only and it would have doubled or tripled the development time to get that on iOS and Android. The community never really got in to multiplayer anyway - they all played single player so it just didn't seem any point.

As far as I remember we have retina support. I haven't seen it running yet but have been promised it any day now!

Will the iOS version (HOPEFULLY) include "skirmish mode?"
Also, are the enemy AI units in the campaign randomly generated or are they static each play through?

Thanks again for the info and hard work!

From Iain@Slitherine:

Great Battles Medieval update - Apple seem to have given in on the consumable gold issue, but still rejecting it - trying to find out why.

Doesn't Apple review team always provide explanation why it was rejected ? If only problem was IAP consumables and they sorted it out, why wouldn't it be approved ? Is this delaying tactic to patch up a game ? A bit confused here
