The game is an instanced 4-player online strategy game set in a Tolkienian fantasy environment. 5 initial factions will be available – Humans, Elves, Dwarves, Orcs and Demons – with more to be added over time.

Once each of the players have chosen their faction in the lobby, the game starts.

The main game map is a medium-sized square map and the player bases are positioned at the 3 o’clock, 6 o’clock, 9 o’clock and 12 o’clock positions respectively.

Each player has a base with 9 buildings already constructed and players cannot build more:

  • 1 Citadel
  • 3 Barracks
  • 4 Towers

Units are controlled by the computer to a large extent so that players can focus on the strategic aspect: they need to decide which upgrade to research when and what additional units (and heroes) to spawn.

There are plenty of upgrades available, usually more than time or money allows you to buy, so choosing which ones to research is a matter of strategy. Sending Heroes and Commanders at the right time to the right spot is also key to victory.

The winner of the game is the last player standing.

The game is a Free For All so only 1 out of 4 players can win.

Cradle of Chaos is to be released for PC and Mac.

The game will be available on Steam, Epic Games Store and Microsoft Store.

Cradle of Chaos is expected to be released in 2024.
