Description Edit

Empires Apart is a historical Real-time Strategy (RTS) indie game due for release on 29th March 2018 on Windows PC[1].

Empires Apart's game-play has been inspired by Age of Empires II (AoE2), an RTS game developed by Ensemble Studios and published by Microsoft, first released in 1999 [2]. AoE2 is still widely played today and tournaments continue to be played and commentated by YouTube and Twitch enthusiasts.

Empires Apart will be built upon the Unreal Engine 4 – a free to develop set of tools designed to aid developers to create games faster with less ground work. The engine is developed by Epic Games, INC [3].

The game is in development by DESTINYbit – an independent game development studio based in Italy co-founded by Gian Paolo Vernocchi, Co-Founder & Creative Director, and Simone Daminato, Co-Founder & Technical Director [4].
