About

Bannermen is a real-time strategy game that takes place in the semi-fantasy medieval realm of Valtoria. While staying true to its roots, Bannermen takes the best elements from the genre and adds its own unique flair to it.

STORY
Having suffered a crushing defeat in the Battle of Beckron, you, Lord Berrian must now regain former bannermen that have surrendered to Lord Karthor. The days of chasing glory are over, as terror spreads and forces ever greater sacrifices to hold Lord Karthor’s men at bay. Without a home and much time to spare, you must travel the vast lands of Valtoria to obtain supplies and convert soldiers to your righteous cause.


GAMEPLAY
With a strong focus on unit control, battling for map control and performing well in enemy encounters are vital. Take manual control over each unit and use its abilities wisely. To become a successful commander, you also need to manage your resources well and establish your bases strategically. Each map has unique nature powers, which are spells that can be cast to cause your enemy tremendous damage. Unlocking these nature powers is a constant struggle as you have to build and defend temples, which can only be erected in holy spots that are located on strategic positions on each map. Other than this, you also have a hero unit under your command, which can be levelled up to become stronger and unlock powerful spells.

Besides online matches and custom games, Bannermen features a full-length singleplayer campaign, that lets you dive into the realm of Valtoria as its hero. Command troops, free prisoners, infiltrate strongholds, manage resources and construct buildings in order to achieve victory in the great war. Learn to fight in many vastly different environments; use sandstorms to hide your advance, set up traps against incoming attacks or why not blow up your enemies with an explosive barrel? With creativity, you must use your surroundings to gain an advantage.


Campaign

Fight for the world of Valtoria and push back the evil that has come to possess it. You are Valtoria's last hope. Taking the role of Lord Berrian, you must defeat Valtoria's oppressor Lord Karthor, but he is not a conventional foe. Even though you won many battles in your days, this is will not to be like you ever seen before. You will have to seek help and use your own sword to bring victory. This time, it is not just your life that is at stake, but the whole world.




GAMEMODES
•   Singleplayer Campaign; take on the role of a fallen lord on his journey back to become one of the mightiest in the realm.

Environments

Bannermen takes place in a vast kingdom where the climate varies. Therefore, the maps and the environment varies depending on where in the realm you are located. You will experience everything from wintry landscapes to green valleys and deserts.




Nature powers

Temple buildings allow you to wield supernatural powers and unleash tremendous power. Whether it be electrocution, or calling in a sandstorm depends on the map.

- Fixed translations on tutorial map.

Content update on friday!
3 APR @ 3:43PM - PLAYZOR



Get ready for the weekend!
Patch 1.1.0 is coming April 5th!

What's in the update?
•   New King's Court unit, Vanguard.
•   New Workshop unit, Ballista.
•   New 2vs2 map available in Skirmish and multiplayer
•   Bug fixes, primarily concerning hotkey bindings.


Ballista
The ballista is used to take down units at great distance from the rear.

A heavy range unit with unbeatable attack range. The Ballista has a special ability (which needs to be activated manually on an enemy unit) that fires away an arrow missile with a chain attached to the Ballista. When the enemy unit has been hit, the Ballista pulls the unit close. This ability can be very useful against heavy armored range enemies, such as Catapults. Ballistas are produced in the Workshop building.


Vanguard
The vanguard is the leading part of an advancing military formation.

A melee unit with great attack range thanks to his long halberd. His standard attack does not only deal decent damage, it also pushes the targeted enemy unit away from the Vanguard. Vanguards are especially useful against heavy melee units, such as Knights. Vanguards are produced in the King's Court building.
