PR: The Golden Horde – JoWooD Productions Announces New Strategy Game

Armchair General

Liezen, Austria, February 15th 2008; The Golden Horde takes you back to a place in time where the heirs of Dschingis Khan were ready to fight for their honor and glory. Choose your battles wisely; you will be up against fast and flexible Mongolians, heavily armed Crusaders and seemingly unconquerable Russians.

About The Golden Horde

The Scenario is based on events taking place in Europe, central Asia and Russia at the beginning of the XIII century. The game will offer recreated versions of famous battles and political crisis in an epic campaign where the outcome is yours to determine.

With sophisticated RPG elements, individual Heroes, stunning graphics and easy controls, The Golden Horde offers the perfect exotic setting for a real-time strategy game in the early middle ages of Europe and Asia.


Three different factions
Crusaders, Mongolians und Russians: each faction will have unique types of military forces, buildings and combat and heroes with individual abilities.

Takeover of enemy Units / Weapons
Take control of neutral horses or their slain riders’ weapon.

Equipment “on the fly”
Provide your warriors with new weapons or switch them directly on the battlefield.

Weather is a key element
Wind affects the flight qualities of arrows; Rain greatly affects visibility; Snow slows down units, which may cause the units to break through the Ice of frozen lakes.

Developer: World Forge
Genre: Strategy
Expected Age Rating: 12+
UK Release: March 28th 2008
