Earlier this month, we reported that Fair Weather Studios’ Ancient Frontier, a new turn-based strategy game with two fully voiced campaigns, would be launching on Steam on September 21st. The game offers two major factions and “three sub-factions,” large battle maps, elements of resource management, Fire Emblem-style permadeath of ships, and a hex grid. I maintain that hexes are better than squares, so I was rather happy about that last point.
While there was gameplay footage available before now, Fair Weather published a video of the entire first level of the Federation campaign earlier this week, giving us a much better look at the way that the game is played. It looks like quite fun thus far and the scale of battle maps was certainly not overstated.
