Stormrise is a post apocalyptic real-time strategy game from Creative Assembly, the makers of Medieval II: Total War. Two warring factions arise from the rubble: the Echelon, a technologically advanced race that endured the planet's fallout by way of self-induced hibernation, and the Sai, a tribal society that adapted to the new apocalyptic environment and evolved over time.
In Stormrise, players can command units in the air, across rooftops, on the earth's surface and even underground; this unique idea of "verticality" introduces multiple layers of gameplay that must be mastered for strategic advantage. The experience is heightened by a simple yet effective control system tailored specifically for consoles, which allows easy unit selection, rapid navigation and precise deployment.
- Lead from the front. Control units and issue commands while viewing the battle from the 3rd-person POV of any unit on the battlefield. The 3rd-person camera offers unprecedented immersion in the game world and presents warfare in a more visceral, emotional, and epic manner than ever before.
- The first fully 3D RTS. Gone are the flat levels of traditional strategy games. Engage in warfare on battlefields comprised of sprawling cities and towering skyscrapers that let you play in a truly 3D environment.
- Revolutionary console RTS features. Groundbreaking control method for quick and intuitive controls. The 'Tactical Playbook' gives players all the strategic choice they get from a traditional RTS, but with the simplicity and accessibility of a playbook.
- Advanced multiplayer features. Multiplayer modes feature "join anytime" functionality, previously only seen in first-person shooters and a breakthrough for console strategy titles.
