Rise of Immortals
is the latest free-to-play game to be announced that fits into the action-RTS genre that has exploded lately on the PC game scene. This new entry comes from developer Petroglyph
and is set in the same fantasy universe as the developer's downloadable strategy game Guardians of Graxia
. The game will feature single player gameplay that will serve as practice for the game's online multiplayer modes with support for up to 10 players.
The game will allow players to upgrade their Immortal characters via a persistent skill tree that will allow players to keep their new upgrades and abilities after matches are over. There will also be a place where players can show off their game achievements, chat with other gamers, form and manage guilds and more.
While the game is designed to be free to play it will have an in-game store where players can purchase items like skins for their Immortals (the game's version of Champions) and more. The title will have 12 Immortals to choose from when its released and new ones, along with other new content, will be added on a monthly basis. Petroglyh is already taking sign ups for the game's closed beta test on its official web site. Rise of Immortals
is set for its official launch later this spring.
