Stardock Announces New Fantasy Strategy Game, 'Elemental: War of Magic'

Stardock announced its next major
PC game, Elemental: War of Magic today. Stardock, the company that has
released such award-winning PC games such as Galactic Civilizations,
Ironclad's Sins of a Solar Empire and is nearing the release date of Gas
Powered Games' Demigod has set the retail launch date of Elemental: War of
Magic ( for the first quarter of 2010 at $49.95 with a

Like all Stardock titles, Elemental: War of Magic will include no on-disk
DRM and will be available for re-download and updates through the Impulse
digital distribution platform ( regardless of wherever

Elemental: War of Magic is set in a world filled with magic and ancient
lore. As the ruler of your kingdom, you must expand your empire through a
combination of magical power, military might, diplomatic skill, technological
advancement and bold adventuring. Your worlds will be of your choosing, or
players are free to create their own.
The story of Elemental: War of Magic begins with an immersive single
player campaign with you being the only person in your kingdom with the
ability to channel magic through mysterious shards of magic that are scattered
across the world. These shards, a result of a tremendous cataclysm that
occurred a century prior when powerful beings waged war across the world, are
the source of much of the world's magic.
With the powers of old now gone, you now hold the key to the use of magic
in your land. As ruler of your land and a channeler of magic, you must decide
how much of your power to imbue into your heroes as you build new cities,
explore dungeons, perfect spells of ever-increasing power and negotiate with
friends and foes alike. Other channelers in the world, whether they be of the
race of Men, The Fallen or the Beasts, are also able to access magic and may
not share your vision of the world.

Harnessing the technology of ImpulseReactor(TM), ground-breaking
multiplayer modes include traditional skirmish modes as well as a persistent
universe mode. Additionally, integrated modding support allows players to
submit maps, items, creatures, races, technologies, spells, buildings,
environments and much more from right within the game and become available to
