'Conqueror's Blade' Season XI: Helheim Will Brings Vikings to Your Shores In Early June - Trailer

by Rainier on May 24, 2022 @ 10:49 a.m. PDT

Combining both heroic action combat with tactical troop maneuvers, Conqueror's Blade allows players to experience authentic medieval warfare as they command fearsome armies.

Booming Games' proprietary engine, CHAOS, delivers a seamless experience, even with thousands of troops onscreen at once, as well as authentic effects, such as fire and explosions, and diverse weather events, including thunderstorms and sandstorms. Stunningly detailed graphics replicate the weapons, armor and equipment of actual medieval troops. The game requires strategic thinking and skillful use of resources, as players must deploy the best army for the battle at hand from a wide selection of both Eastern and Western Legions, powerful Generals, and thousands of weapons.  

Battles are fought in a vast sandbox landscape several thousand kilometers wide, where players seek to conquer lands and reign over their own Kingdom. Mirroring our own world the terrain features high mountains, deep rivers and fierce deserts, and populated by a variety of nations and cultures. Players may acquire territory to build their own House and Kingdom and fight to defend them.

Conqueror's Blade features Match PvP, Match PvE and Big World PvPvE. Match PvP features five different battles, including a 15v15 multi-stage siege offense vs defense skirmishwhere the offense must take the defense's flag by selecting from one or two established attack routes. In Death Match, 8v8 or 5v5 sides must kill more Generals before time runs out. Match PvE features two different battles where players escort an NPC and protect it from enemy NPC attack.

In Big World PvPvE, an all-out war ensues in which players compete against each other to occupy territory as well as the AI defenders who hold it. This mode includes two Stronghold War capture the flag-type contests. Stronghold Wars feature up to 15v15 battling simultaneously. Both sides have a flag that cannot be taken at the beginning, along with a neutral flag. The side that captures the neutral flag may attack the enemy's side, and if successful, may occupy their flag for a limited time. The defense wins if it can protect all its flags until the end of the game. In Stronghold Wars, Generals can be revived, but the Legion chosen by the General cannot.

The new Season of Conqueror’s Blade was announced, launching as a free update on June 9, 2022.

Conqueror’s Blade: Helheim opens the new seasonal campaign which is inspired by sea-faring Viking raiders and includes two types of units, reworked maps and other unique content.

The Northmen seek to re-establish their empire on new and distant shores—heed the battle call in the starting region of the Borderlands or Ungverijaand play every week to see their saga unfold. Players will initially have access to 3-Star Units across Siege, Field, and Territory Wars battles, and their power will only grow as the Season progresses. The most courageous generals will be able to battle in twice-weekly Territory Wars with their House, complete Stages, and prepare for the final showdown in Reginopolis at the end of the Season.

attles with enemies will be more engaging with two new units, inspired by fearsome historical Viking warriors, including the most brutal skirmishers the Northlands have to offer:

  • Huskarls (4-Star) - Available June 9: Bodyguards of noble stock, Huskarls can inspire allies as they charge furiously into battle.    
  • Varangian Guards (5-Star) - Available later in the season: Elite warriors who found their calling on distant shores. Fuelled by rage, these brutal mercenaries can switch between swords and shields or axes to hew enemies down in a furious tempest.

With the launching of Helheim, players will be able to have a new experience on  reworked versions of fan-favourite maps, including the besieged Broch Eastray, La Grande Gloire, and the Northmen's own ancestral home of Heilung Fjord. Broch Eastray will be available on June 9, with the raiders making appearances on new maps as the Season progresses.

Anyone who wants to get the most out of the new season can pre-order a BattlePass or check out a similar option in-game, the Battle Pass is accompanied by a set of bonus items,  including new and exclusive cosmetics, Emotes, currency, and so much more.

Moreover, Conqueror’s Blade will launch a unique event in honor of the 3rd anniversary of the game. From May 26 until June 16 players can absorb yourself in a host of special events such as Sea Monster Beach Party, PvP/PvE Event: The Reginopolis Rumble and much more.

Key Features:

  • Massive Battles and Sieges: With commanders perched at ramparts and enormous trebuchets hurling burning boulders at the battling armies, Conqueror’s Blade delivers unforgettable battlescapes and a visceral medieval combat experience. With more than 1000 units charging the enemy at the same time, 30 commanders and their wisely chosen, battle-hardened troops will face off in attempts to outmaneuver the opposition. The players are the vanguard; personally, protecting the battering rams while under fire from death-dealing arrows - all while looking to exploit an overextended enemy and secure the choke points required to emerge victorious.
  • Medieval Cultural Clashes: Capturing warfare at the peak of medieval rivalry, Conqueror’s Blade sets up conflicts between military forces that have never crossed swords. Players will choose from ten commanders, each with their own fighting style and weaponry. Can a Japanese nodachi withstand a clash against a Swiss halberd, and will be a Hospitaller’s lance be swift enough to charge a recurved Mongol bow? Answers to centuries-old questions will be finally settled on the field of battle.
  • Conquest of an Open World: Conqueror’s Blade’s war theater is a persistent open world divided by regions with unique landscapes, resources and cultures. Players explore the fictional, mysterious heart-shaped continent for as far as their army can take them -- and where skirmishes over resources are inevitable. A key task for player guilds is how to organize their commanders and cooperatively plot to conquer each region, all while building and upgrading infrastructure and recruiting for the armies that will protect the spoils of war.
  • Trade and economic system: Kingdoms will wither and die without healthy trade, so set up your economy with an eye on the markets and diplomatic options open: it makes all the difference between a house and an empire! Trade coins and items at the Auction House, buy basic equipment from Merchants, or take risks on the Black Market to sell off rare materials for silver or gold.

Players can register on and take their first steps in creating their empire’s epic saga.
