Ironfell is an interesting game. Its a hex-based 2D MMORTS whereby players can expand their kingdom, trade with other players, cross vast oceans and of course fight for the chance to continue expanding said kingdom. The game is very much a sandbox MMO with everything ingame created by the players themselves.
Ironfell offers players a staggering 64 units and structures to build with the promise of even more units in a future expansion including dinosaurs, time machines and two new resource types. Players will even eventually blast off into space.
Unlike most other MMORTSs. Ironfell encourages players to gain an unfair advantage. Put simply, the more you play the more resources you get, and the stronger you become. An RTS you can never pause. How fun that is for a new player I can’t say, but the hardcore/unfair nature of the game may be appealing to some unphased by the staggering entry requirements. Perhaps those who also get a kick out of EVE Online.
