Arthurian legend speaks of the legendary King expanding his realm to Ireland, Gaul, Iceland and Norway in a series of epic battles and strategic subterfuge. Take command of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table as Arthur strives to extend his Kingdom. Will you be able to unite the Britons to raise an army before marching on the road to conquest? Can you turn villages into cities to support your war machine, creating intricate supply lines, criss-crossing Europe? Follow the traditional path of the Warrior or draw on the powers of the mystical mage Merlin to turn the tide of war in this epic fusion of turn-based and real-time strategy.

The Battles of King Arthur has been painstakingly created by hand to offer the ultimate turn based battlefield. King Arthur's battle map encompasses Britain, Ireland, Gaul, Norway and Iceland.

Draw your enemies towards you or charge head-on into hostile territory. The battle map offers endless opportunities for talented tacticians to shape the flow of war to their strengths whilst avoiding dangerous military weaknesses. Rally the Kingdom of Camelot to your cause, swelling the ranks of your military to utilise each settlement to generate supplies from nearby resources.

Success depends on skilled management of your logistics as you create an infrastructure to support your battlefield units. Engage in diplomacy or rain down a hail of arrows as alliances are formed and broken in the shifting sands of an ebbing and flowing battlefield.

Build an army of epic units including bowmen, pikemen, mounted knights, siege weapons, trebuchets and all the paraphernalia of epic medieval warfare. Research from a wide variety of options to upgrade your military to emerge victorious against your foes.

Unleash the fearsome Celtic dragons as they scour the battlefield in search of enemy positions. Utilise the unique powers of major characters from Merlin who unleashes spells of fire upon your enemies to the rallying cry of King Arthur whilst avoiding the will sapping Mordred and the might of Morgaine as they serve your enemies.

Choose your faction - play as Arthur King of the Britons or aim to wreak devastation on your enemies playing as the leader of Iceland, Norway, Gaul and Ireland.
