Publisher Nacon and developer Artefacts Studio have moved up turn-based strategy game Crown Wars: The Black Prince from its previously planned March 14, 2024 release date to March 7, the companies announced. It will be available for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, and PC via Steam and Epic Games Store, with the Switch version to follow at a later date.
Here is an overview of the game, via Nacon:
In Crown Wars: The Black Prince, the player dives into the Hundred Years’ War, which embroiled several royal families in bloody conflict, with the crown of the most powerful kingdom of the West as the prize. But that is without taking a powerful Evil into account, one that can change History. A secret and diabolical organization is sewing chaos throughout the kingdom in its quest for power.
In these troubled times, the game lets you play as a young lord from one of four families that have fallen out of favor, each with particular skills and its own history that is revealed as the game progresses. Guided by the mysterious alchemist Nicolas Flamel, you must restore your lands to their former glory and lead the fight against brigands, knights and the henchmen of the Order, the dark power behind the reign of terror. In order to liberate the kingdom from invasion and corrupting evil, you must recruit, equip and train squads of companions comprised of the 6 classes of soldiers available in the game. Without you, the war is lost. You are the last hope of the Brotherhood of Light.
