Seed Studios announced the launch of Under Siege, which is one of the the first RTS game developed exclusively for PlayStation 3.
Under Siege will be available for download towards the end of the year and will retail for £11.99 in the UK, $19.99 in the US and €14.99 throughout the rest of Europe (no local price is known at this time).
Set in a medieval fantasy world, Under Siege sees players control a small group of heroes – Eirik, Kari and Asgeir – in a battle against the huge invading army of King Ingvar. With a single player campaign, as well as online and local multiplayer content, the game works with the DualShock/Sixaxis controller and is also one of the first games to support the Playstation Move controller.
Under Siege places extreme emphasis on user-generated content and in-game battles. Using the same powerful in-game editor used by the developers, players can create their own maps to share and play online with other members of the Under Siege™ community. The game interfaces with several social networks, for example allowing users to directly upload pictures to Facebook and videos to YouTube.
Filipe Pina, Developer, Seed Studios, said, “Under Siege™ has been two years in the making and we’re delighted to be unveiling it to the Under Siege™ community. Due to their often complex control systems, many people associate real time strategy games with the PC, a keyboard and a mouse. But we were keen to demonstrate what is achievable on the Playstation®3. The new Playstation®Move controller in particular, offers some thrilling new possibilities for this genre that we wanted to take advantage of.”
