'Songs Of Conquest' Early Access Update Adds Barony of Loth Campaign

by Rainier on May 15, 2023 @ 10:37 a.m. PDT

Songs Of Conquest is a turn-based strategy adventure game that fuses RPG, tactical combat and kingdom management.

Songs Of Conquest is a turn-based strategy game where players can build their kingdoms, explore distant lands and battle for dominance in single player campaigns, online and local multiplayer or skirmishes. In battle, players will take control of a wide range of combat units as well as Wielders, unique hero units that can control magic and buff their troops, as well as cast destructive spells on their foes. The game will also launch into Early Access with a map editor that will give players the tools to create their own adventures and share their creations with others.

Songs Of Conquest is brought to life by an original take on pixel art design, allowing players to explore a unique and beautiful fantasy setting. The in-game world is teeming with noble knights, nefarious necromancers and forest Faey locked in battle over power and territory. Players will encounter four distinct factions, each with their own unique aesthetics, gameplay and hero units, ranging from the noble knights of Arleon and the mysterious Barony of Loth to the swamp dwellers of the Rana tribes or the mercenaries of Barya.

Songs Of Conquest is defined by its unique combat system, utilising hero units known as Wielders, each with their own affinity to a specific set of magic spells that buff their troops, rain destruction on their enemies or grant players extra turns and combat options. Each of the four factions prioritises a different magic school, and the Wielders’ mana resource, known as Essence, comes directly from the number and size of its army.

Coffee Stain Publishing and Lavapotion are excited to release a major new Early Access update (Steam, GOG and Epic Games Store) for Songs of Conquest, where players can explore the Barony of Loth campaign, a new single-player experience offering a closer look at the game’s necromancer faction that is sure to rattle your bones.
The Loth single player campaign will feature four individual missions available on Easy, Normal and Hard difficulty, offering a real challenge similar to the previous campaigns of the Arleon and Rana factions. Players will witness the rise of the Barony and utilise the faction’s unique trait allowing them to raise an army of undead to fight once more.
Throughout the campaign, players will gain insight into the dark history of the Barony of Loth, as well as the tragic fate that befell the Aurelian empire. The campaign begins with the tale of Baron Aldus of Loth who encounters a mysterious figure that offers him a chance to seize an ancient power. Desperate to save his vassals and secure his legacy, Aldus strikes a deal with the stranger, only to find out that there is a dark price to be paid, and death is only the beginning. The Baron soon finds out that the road to ruin is paved with good intentions as he will watch his comrades and men at arms rise into undeath.

“We’re very excited for players to experience the Barony of Loth campaign starting today, and get a firsthand look at how our darkest faction operates,” said Carl Toftfelt, Lead Game Designer at Lavapotion. “We’ve been ‘dead set’ on perfecting this story and expanding on Songs of Conquest’s intricate lore to give players a chance to explore the darker side of Aerbor - if you like skeletons, wraiths, and other undead creatures, you’re in for a thrill.”

The game will continue to receive additional updates throughout the Early Access period, with exciting new content such as the Barya campaign and achievement system currently in development.

Songs Of Conquest is available through Steam Early Access, GOG and Epic Games Store for 29.99$ / 29.99€.
