Experience Of Kings And Men At Its Best With The Launch Of 'The Long War' Update

p>Wednesday 6th December, London, UK - Warlock Wireless and Green Man Gaming Publishing are pleased to announce that Of Kings and Men will be available as a free trial during the Free Weekend on Steam from 7th December to 11th December 2017. The medieval battle game will also be available to purchase at 66% off during the Free Weekend period. On top of the free trial, the game has also received a new update ‘The Long War’ which will add more maps and improvements to the way battles are handled.  

New and existing Of Kings And Men players will be able to take part in the biggest multiplayer battles the game has seen in De Re Militari, the strategy layer to Of Kings And Men, as it receives a selection of changes and improvements in its latest update. The Long War update enables players to ambush passing armies from enemy clans and battle on new maps; share troops to include multiple regiments in one army; and an upkeep system, which requires players to manage finances from their battles to keep their stronghold running.

The new update also gives the game a new quest system, which encourags new players to experiment with different weapons and combat styles, and offer experienced players daily challenges to gain additional experience and rewards. More maps have also been added to the Skirmish mode, providing more arenas for players to test their skills in tense multiplayer combat.

“Following the feedback we’ve had throughout the initial launch of the De Re Militari mode, we have been able to make some improvements to the way battles are handled on the strategic map, allowing for clans to ambush each other and plan more combat scenarios. By including more maps, including the quest system and allowing ambushes, we have introduced plenty of ways for players to experience Of Kings And Men, and look forward to seeing old and new players battling together during the Free Weekend on Steam,” says Gary Rowe, EVP Publishing at Green Man Gaming.


Game Description

Persistent Medieval War

Air thick with the stench of death. Bleeding hands fumbling over heavy, rusted swords. The sharp swish of an arrow as it pierces the air. The cry of a dying warrior, his scarred arms flailing as he crashes down against the dirt. He cries for help, but it is muffled by the sound of combat. No one can save him. 

This is life now in medieval Europe. War has arrived.

Join the ranks. Don’t back down. Slaughter, or be slaughtered.

Key Features


Our featured De Re Militari mode allows you to experience a real-time medieval war campaign set in a persistent world. Now you can gather your clan, plan your attack, and brace yourself against the enemy. 

Join a team and work your way up the ranks as you battle it out with up to 150 other players in a fight. Learn the ropes, and someday you might even try your hand at leading your own army...


Experience a realistic combat system based on the study of historical European martial arts and medieval manuscripts. Fight with a fast-paced, intuitive combat system that will leave your heart pounding.

Meet and chat with fellow players in our Lobby. Socialize and get to know one another by choosing to play in fun modes, or risk you life by venturing into the wilderness in search of adventure. 


Level up in combat, and choose which stat points to upgrade. Make enemies cower in the face of your strength as they tremble under the ferocity of your sword. Or maybe you're quick and nimble, preferring to snigger at your foes as you pierce them with your arrows from afar. You are in control. 


Unlock new gear, from full plate armor to two-handed swords. Create and customize your own unique warrior. Stand out, and make them remember you. 

Draw your sword, and march forth into battle with your head held high. It's time to claim your place as the most powerful lord of the realm.
