Gogogic, a development studio based out of Iceland has announced a partnership with Sega of America to create a free-to-play MMORTS called Godsrule: War of Mortals. From the looks of it the gameplay is fairly standard. Players will choose between two rival factions, expand their empire by collecting scarce resources and attempt to dominate contested territories by slaying their enemies with upgradeable units and spells.
It’s the usual stuff one might come to expect from an MMORTS, but with a surprising amount of aesthetic charm. The game is slated for both browser and Ipad release with the two platforms utilizing the same persistent game world. Unlike other browser based MMORTS, the combat seems to be non-autonomous which is always a good thing. However, I am not sure how easy it will be for Ipad players to fight against someone with a mouse and keyboard. If you are interested in checking Godsrule out you can sign up for the closed beta here.
