What were you doing Christmas eve? I was getting recipes together for Christmas meals, then I was in church singing Silent Night, which is such a pretty song. Unfortunately, I didn’t tell you all about Heroes of the Realm, so I’m doing so now. It’s OGPlanet’s free-to-play card/strategy RPG that offers numerous challenges and deep gameplay right from your web browser.
Heroes of the Realm blends key elements of the simulation, card battle/collection, and strategy/RPG genres into an addictive hybrid of a game unlike any other. Players build kingdoms and amass an army of Heroes as they restructure and restore glory to Midland, one of three dimensions plagued by a 300-year-old war. By collecting Heroes, players are able to expand upon their kingdom, adding new structures and unlocking new abilities. To rule the land and restore it to its former glory, players must utilize their Heroes, optimize their battle stats and formations, and take on engaging quests and challenges. The path to victory does not lie in wealth and riches, but in the mind of the player and the morale of the Midland citizens.
Those 300-year-old wars, I’ll tell ya what; may as well give up trying to turn those swords into plowshares. Can’t imagine there’s any land left to farm anyway. But Midland’s misfortune is your gain, as it gives you a lot of problems to solve and plenty of time to do it.
Key features include:
- Over 350 unique heroes to do battle with and collect, with many more on the way
- Build and strengthen your kingdom, made in your image
- Customize formations, hero squads, AI settings and more to maximize strategy in battle
- Engage other players in Player versus Player combat in Arena and Colosseum
- Use enchantment cards and combine heroes to unlock special heroes that can be used to turn the tides of war
- Instant Play! Browser-based game means big adventure and strategy without a big download.
If you’re about to get hit by this big snowstorm threatening those of us in the northeast, Heroes of the Realm, looks to be a good way to kill some time when you can’t get out of your driveway…or just want an excuse to not go out and shovel.
