Tomorrow, the colorful and fast-paced fantasy RTS 8-Bit Hordes launches for PlayStation®4 and Xbox One. To celebrate this occasion, a brand new launch trailer was revealed today, showing savage battles in enchanting realms.
The Hordes are here
8-Bit Hordes is the second game in the 8-Bit RTS Series by Petroglyph, known from their work on many RTS games and currently working on the Command & Conquer™ remake. It’s a fantasy RTS in which players build a headquarters and raise a massive army of magical beings such as Phoenixes, Treants, Dragons and Cyclopes, to crush the opponents. In their review, PlayStation Country describes 8-Bit Hordes as “a fun, accessible-yet-challenging RTS that speaks to the dev’s heritage”.
Online cross-title battles
8-Bit Hordes offers a unique online cross-title multiplayer mode with the other two games in the series, which means that players who own 8-Bit Hordes can battle online against players who own 8-Bit Armies or 8-Bit Invaders!. The first game in the series, modern military themed 8-Bit Armies, already launched for console in 2018. On the 26th of February the third and final game in the series, the sci-fi RTS 8-Bit Invaders!, will also release for PS4™ and Xbox One.
