Description


Battle Brothers is a turn based tactical RPG which has you leading a mercenary company in a gritty, low-power, medieval fantasy world. You decide where to go, whom to hire or to fight, what contracts to take and how to train and equip your men in a procedurally generated open world campaign. Do you have what it takes to lead them through bloody battles and to victory?

The game consists of a strategic worldmap and a tactical combat layer. On the worldmap you can freely travel in order to take contracts that earn you good coin, find places worth looting, enemies worth pursuing or towns to resupply and hire men at. This is also where you manage, level up and equip your Battle Brothers. Once you engage a hostile party the game will switch to a tactical map where the actual fighting takes place as detailed turn based combat.


  • Manage a medieval mercenary company in a procedurally generated open world.
  • Fight complex turn-based tactical battles with historical equipment and brutal injuries.
  • Permadeath. All characters that die in combat will stay dead – unless they return as the undead.
  • All characters come with their own background stories and traits. Want a stuttering ratcatcher, a greedy witch hunter or a drunkard disowned noble?
  • Character development without a restrictive class-system. Each character gains experience through combat, can level up and acquire powerful perks.
  • Equipment that matters. Different weapons grant unique skills – split shields with axes, stun enemies with maces, form a spearwall with spears or crush armor with a warhammer.
  • Diverse enemy roster. All enemies have unique equipment, skills and AI behavior.
  • A dynamic event system with atmospheric encounters and tough decisions outside of combat.
  • Three late game crises – a war between noble houses, a greenskin invasion and an undead scourge – add a looming threat.
  • Two full hours of orchestral soundtrack.
  • 70 Steam Achievements and Steam Trading Cards.

Overview
Battle Brothers is a medieval, turn-based strategy game with management elements. This game is clearly inspired by Mount & Blade, which you can see in the way you go about trading, and travelling around the world map. The key difference from the said game is that Battle Brothers doesn’t have real-time combat, which is instead replaced by the turn-based strategy aspect. This is probably the best way to summarize this game.

Breakdown
Think before you attack
Combat in Battle Brothers has been done incredibly well, and this is coming from someone who is very picky about turn based strategy games! You have a variety of warriors, ranging from your standard archers or swordsman to people with pitchforks. You can arrange your team in various formations which have unique features and provide their own boosts. On top of that, each individual character will level up and develop their own perks. As a result, you will easily get attached to certain characters; especially when the lone survivor from a long drawn battle goes on to level up and fight for you in many successful battles. But you better be careful. Your characters love can be lost forever due to some foolish mistakes. Furthermore, There are many enemies with their own unique mechanics. Some of them even delve into the realm of fantasy. For example, you will encounter zombies who can come back to life and some monsters who will consume the dead to become stronger and you better be weary.

Finding your golden trade route
One of the things that the game clearly take inspiration from M&B is the way trading is done, as well as the town aspect. Each town has its own kind of economy such as mining, farming, fishing etc. As a result, each town will sell certain goods cheaper and will pay more for certain goods. For example, a farming town will sell you food for cheap, but at the same time, it will pay a hefty sum for a mineral or gem. You will quickly pick up on these things and will look to find your own trade route, which will ensure you get maximum profits in no time!

It looks a bit...unappealing
The aesthetics is the only place I that can give some negative critique to this game. It isn’t the best and will definitely make a few players stay away from the game. However, once you look past the game’s looks and into what the game holds, then you will definitely be pleased with the game.

Are you ready to lose endless hours?
Battle Brothers will do just that. This is the kind of game you will start playing only to look at the clock later to see that you spent the entire day just playing it! That being said, people who don’t enjoy this kind of game will probably not enjoy this one either as it does not reinvent the wheel. However, this is very good in what it does. I wholeheartedly recommend this game. Definitely worth buying!
