Set in the fantastical realm of Ruachland, players will engage in epic battles, utilizing a blend of tactical prowess and magical abilities to conquer territories and create a legendary legacy. The game is designed to offer a rich strategic experience, where players can lead armies, recruit heroes with unique talents, and explore a world filled with diverse factions like the Holy Oath Alliance and the Elven Empire.

Developed by PB Studio and published by Luckycalf, Pennon and Battle is set for release on June 20, 2024 PC as an Early Access title; it aims to incorporate extensive player feedback to refine and enhance the gameplay experience. The developers plan to involve the community through various social channels, ensuring that the game’s development aligns with player expectations.

The Early Access version already boasts substantial content, including story campaigns, Arena, and online PVP modes, featuring five distinct factions, over 50 heroes, 80 types of soldiers, and 70 spells.

Players can expect a dynamic and immersive gameplay experience, with randomly generated battle elements and event cards that can influence the course of each skirmish.
