RavenMarch: Empire in Flames is a free to play browser MMORTS developed and published by Kabam. It’s a fantasy game set in a medieval flavored fictional world where players become city builders and military commanders. The main game goal is to raise powerful armies and establish PvP dominance but this cannot be done without economic development and strategic planning. Social interaction is another important RavenMarch aspect. Competitive players that want to increase their chances of success should find likeminded allies to form alliances and sign military or diplomatic treaties.
RavenMarch starts with avatar selection followed by a short tutorial that introduces players to basic building, combat and the background game story. Players will also be required to choose one of the 2 playable game factions: The Empire or The Kingdoms. This is a personal choice, players are advised to go with the faction that appeals them the most. Upgrading a modest settlement to a vast empire takes time and resources such as food, timber, steel and gold. RavenMarch resources are produced by buildings. There are also other ways to get resources such as praying to temporarily boost resource production. Units are recruited using resources. A general to guide units and troops in battle is needed as well. Generals can select one of the 3 types of attacks when fighting against an enemy, these types follow a rock paper scissors strengths and weaknesses system that ensures balanced combat and fair chances for everyone. Players have to fight mobs to unlock PvE content and other human players in PvP matches so combat is an important part of RavenMarch. Completing quests, missions and scenarios is a rewarding activity. Additional rewards come from winning fights, taking part in RavenMarch events and even from daily logins. RavenMarch follows the freemium business model adopted by all free MMO games, there is no initial cost to play the game and no monthly subscription. Dedicated players are given the choice to obtain special currency in exchange for real money and use this currency to acquire premium goods and services. An optional paid membership is available as well. The main reason to use premium services is to speed up city development but for veteran players this is also a way to show their support and appreciation towards the RavenMarch development team.
