Lords And Heroes - Independent MMO Strategy/RPG - Gameplay Video

Hi Everyone!

Our small independent team is happy to present Lords And Heroes - a MMO Strategy/RPG that was announced by us back in 2011 and took 2 years of hard work and passion to build.

Finally we are at Alpha version, most features are working and we have something to show!

Check out more information on the website - www.lordsandheroes.com

This game is being created for gamers by gamers, with gameplay in mind as a higher priority over revenues. We neglect any freemium models that in our opinion corrupt the gameplay totally by making it a money race. Lords And Heroes will have a flat subscription fee without any paid items, purchasable currency or character boosts.

The concept is a faction-based strategy where 3 factions clash for resources in an alternative medieval world. Battles are real-time 3D with realistic weapons, armor and movements. We have extensively consulted with our local LARP (Live Action Role-Playing) community who kindly provided a whole lot of information about historical medieval fighting. Special thanks to them!

Finally we have a soundtrack that we can be proud of! It's recorded live with power metal band "Cherny Kuznets" ("Blacksmith") - who were very excited about the game - and featured by performers from St. Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra.

Find the original soundtrack on our YouTube channel - http://www.youtube.com/user/LordsAndHeroes

Now to add some more content and tweak the balance, carry out beta testing, wrap it up for release, set up game servers worldwide and do some initial promotion we need more resources. This may take long if we continue to self-fund it. Which is why

Today we have launched an Indiegogo campaign to support the upcoming release. Get pre-paid play time today at cheaper rates, appear in the game credits, collect soundtrack CD and other awesome perks!

Thank you all!!!

There is a lot of similarity indeed, although we did not intend to clone that game. Also Mount & Blade is not a MMOG.

You are right, Heroes III was one of our main inspirations since we spent months playing it back in 2000s!

As for the battle system we were somewhat inspired by good old Golden Axe but we made it 3D.

Thank you and we are happy you like it!

We'll specially announce beta testing, how soon we do it depends much on how our Indiegogo campaign progresses.
