Bladestorm: The Hundred Years War

Developed by Omega Force and published by KOEI, the team that brought you the infamous Dynasty Warriors series are just now putting finsihing touches on a new franchise for the PS3 called Bladestorm: The Hundred Years War.

It’s believed that the game will follow the history of the actual Hundred Years’ War that was fought between France and England. The war lasted from 1337 to 1453 and started when English Kings fought over the throne of France. Militarily, it was the introduction of new weaponary and tactics, which led to feudal age armies being dominated by heavy cavalry.

Details are still scarce on the title and there have only been a few trailers released for the game. What we do know is that Bladestorm will feature many medieval weapons, large castles, and up to 65,000 characters on screen at once. Also you can expect the game to play a lot like a hack an slash similar to that of Dynasty Warriors with a few improvements.

Bladestorm was suppossed to launch with the PlayStation 3 but has recently been pushed back until first quarter 2007.
