The free-to-play empire-builder will have you rewriting history.
Ah, it's been awhile since I got embroiled in a good city-builder with a good measure of politics thrown in. Having been released just yesterday, Fortuna is the latest in MMO publishing giant Perfect World's lineup, allowing you to pledge allegiance to one of three houses vying for control of the empire.
Described as a 'war torn world full of conflict and political intrigue," Fortuna is set in Europe during the renaissance era. Three goofily named families - the Medicis, the Tudors, and the Fuggers - are all competing for control of the empire. It's up to the player to choose their allies, build a hamlet into a metropolis, and amass armed forces against those who would capture your land. Players will be able to engage in trade with each other, bolstering their rise to power.
And while the city grows, warmongering also plays a big part. Players will have access to over 20 types of military units, as well as a large collection of powerful generals with such names as Christopher Columbus and Jeanne D'Arc making an appearance.
