Eador: Imperium Is Now Available on Early Access

Grand Strategy!

Turn-based strategy and role-playing hybrid Eador has a new standalone expansion on Steam's Early Access, introducing stalwart commanders to a frigid new world and a host of new units to help conquer it.

It's been quite some time since the Eador series released any new games, but the new expandalone Eador. Imperium [Steam page] [Yes, they do punctuate it that way -ed.] promises to give grand strategy fans plenty of reasons to once again conquer the broken "shards" that make up its universe. Along with a new frozen shard world and tactical map, Imperium adds 15 new unit types and four new heroes.

A post to Eador. Imperium's Steam Community page dives into what players can expect from the new heroes. "Lich and his army are dead, and as they say — what is dead may never die. A horde of undead can break through defense, die, then rise and keep going forward again. No more regrets about fallen 7-level paladins, which have been with you for 158 turns." It also has Sorceress, Legate, and Pilot heroes that each have their own distinctive styles and strategies.

Eador: Imperium is just starting out in Early Access, and Snowbird Games have detailed plans to eventually introduce a whole new singleplayer campaign, an additional 15 units, and some new mechanics on top of everything already established in the Eador series.

Right now, Eador: Imperium can be picked up for 10 percent off until June 9 at $18/€15,99, with an additional 15 percent discount for those who already own the previous Eador: Masters of the Broken World. When Adam looked at Broken World a few years back, he really enjoyed it despite having a few issues with the combat, and Imperium looks like it only expands on that foundation.
