KINGMAKERS Game Trailer Brings Modern Guns to a Medieval Knife Fight

“Don’t bring a knife to a gunfight” is really solid advice, but what about its inverse? What about bringing a gun to a knife fight? That’s exactly what you’ll get to do with publisher tinyBuild and developer Redemption Road Games upcoming third-person shooter strategy game Kingmakers. Its sending you back in time to wage war with modern day weapons. And the game’s new trailer shows that driving around medieval England in a beat-up pickup with 21st century items is an easy way to reign supreme in a fantasy world.

Gamers will soon be able to travel 500 years into the past without giving up any of their modern amenities thanks to Kingmakers. The sandbox strategy/shooter places you in the middle of “massive war-torn medieval battles.” There you can “build, lead, fight,” and alter events forever, all while also possibly stopping the apocalypse. Here’s the official synopsis from Redemption Road Games:

Go back in time to a war-torn medieval era with a vast arsenal of modern weapons, change the course of history, and save the future in this epic action/strategy sandbox. Build your kingdom, grab a gun, and lead an army of thousands into massive, real-time simulated battles — solo or in co-op.

Players will get to take on an entire army of swordsman in real-time battles. You’ll wage war with “assault rifles, shotguns, grenade launchers, armored SUVs, bikes, attack helos, air strikes, and more.” You don’t have to do that alone, either. The game allows you to have as many as three friends join their armies with yours in an online co-op mode.

Gamers can also switch between engaging in direct combat or merely issuing orders any time they want. That way you can play as many different ways as you like, from being right in the middle of the fray to trusting your subordinates to help you conquer this violent world. But while Kingmakers will send you to the past, it won’t come out until the near future. It arrives on PC via Steam sometime in 2024.

Until then we can probably guess what happens when you bring a gun to a knife fight. Based on this trailer it’s a lot of fun.
