Rebuild Empires in Stormfall: Rise of Balur

Dragons, heroes, and quests are all good and glorious, but we know that realistic fantasy has a bit more of a macro-economical approach – one that rings with bags of gold and shines with the steel of employed armies. The just-released Stormfall: Rise of Balur gives every player the power to forge an empire from scratch to fight back against adversaries and fulfill their destiny.

Stormfall is a free-to-play fantasy MMORTS in which each user manages his or her empire. They start out by planning out the intro economy and creating mines, farms, guilds, and markets, which grant wood, iron, and gold, the basic resources. But perhaps an even more important part is to recruit forces to defend the burgeoning empire: Paladins, knights, barbarians, and wizards are all available to fight for the cause. Players can either stand against the forces of darkness solo, or team up with friends in strategic alliances.

While the real-time strategy combat is playing out, developer Plarium has also created a fully-voiced storyline to follow and walk through events in Stormfall. Those revolve around non-player characters. Furthermore, fans can enjoy the experience in a variety of languages: English, Spanish, Italian, German, French, and Russian are all supported.

Rise of Balur is the mobile successor to Stormfall: Age of War, which amassed 30 million users on social media platforms. Plarium was recently awarded one of Facebook’s “Best New Games of 2014” for Sparta: War of Empires, also a strategy game.

Those interested in starting their own fantasy empire can get to downloading Stormfall: Rise of Balur now from either Google Play or the iTunes store. Check out Plarium’s website for more information on their games.
