Kingdom Heroes (KH) is a free to play 3D online role-playing game set in the legendary Three Kingdoms period of Ancient China. The title introduces a wide range of new and revolutionary features to the MMORPG genre.
In Kingdom Heroes, players are able to recruit and customize NPC soldiers to form their own personal armies. Organize a crew of players and take to the seas in exciting ship battles. Work together to establish, develop, and defend player-controlled cities and conquer enemy strongholds using an impressive arsenal of troops, mounts, ships, and powerful siege engines.
In addition to this unparalleled array of features, Kingdom Heroes offers numerous character customization options, branching classes and talent trees, mounted combat, a player based economy, instanced battlefields, thousands of quests, and global player-versus-player (PvP) events where rival factions battle for control of player cities and territory.
Epic Kingdom-wide Combat
Experience PvP action on a scale like no other. Venture into battle to raze enemy forts and strongholds; or join other player armies to take over entire cities and ports, with each conquest and defeat changing the tide of war.
Players experience the rare opportunity of convening on a seafaring vessel to take down enemies. Ships are tied to the in-game guild system, and the captain of the ship can assign navigation, gunnery and repair roles. Up to seven players can work these roles on one vessel – but many more can be on the ship’s deck as support raiders.
For ultimate conquest, and when players absolutely, positively must kill every last enemy soldier in a stronghold – look no further than siege weapons. Player armies can use ballistae, catapults, trebuchets or battering rams for a lightning-quick assault, or a full-on brute force siege of city defenses.
Player-conquered cities can become vital sources of income for a guild. Once a city is taken over, an administrator is put in charge to develop building upgrades and defenses, and is rewarded with taxes collected on local business. However, greedy players will soon find their coffers empty as the pulse of the market travels elsewhere.
Players can customize their formidable armies to a great extent, from diverse unit categories to different types of formations and marching orders. Players can even give old armor pieces to soldiers to bolster strength for the battles that lie ahead.
