ELOA Being Spun Up A Third Time, As Warlords Awakening
There's a new game in town, and it's ... well, an old game. Warlords Awakening is on Steam, developed and published by Playwith Games. It's going to go into early access later in 2018, and will allow players to go "on a journey to become an Elite Lord with an action packed story and ominous monsters around every corner."
"Elite Lord"? Wait, that sounds familiar ...
Indeed it does. Warlords Awakening is a new version of Elite Lords of Alliance, a.k.a. ELOA, which launched in 2015 and shut down 10 months later -- and then relaunched two months after that and shut down again last August.
If you're skeptical of the third time being the charm for ELOA/Warlords Awakening, you're not the only one. Playwith has posted an FAQ on the Steam page, where the first question is "Why should we expect anything different from a game that has shut down?" Their answer basically consists of throwing the previous publisher under the bus, saying that it was "never serviced properly" and that "there was a clear disconnect between the user’s feelings towards the game and how it was presented." Naturally, Playwith pledges to do a better job this time around.
Oh, and don't worry, they promise the game isn't "another cash-grab or pay 2 win title." Not that we think it will be, but that's what everyone says.
