    Providing an evocative look back at some of history's most visceral pre-modern battles and conflicts, Ancestors Legacy is a superb PS4 RTS that fans of the genre shouldn't miss out on.

    Ancestors Legacy Conqueror’s Edition is the RTS title the PlayStation 4 gamers were waiting for. Easy to learn, balanced factions, long campaign mode and stable multiplayer mode. A real time strategy game that hooks you in since the first minute. Probably we are not before the strategy game more deep of the market, but the gameplay works really well and delivers a great medieval story.

    It’s always great to see strategy games being released on console. Ancestors Legacy is a deep and challenging title, and one of the not-so-many games of this genre available on these platforms.

    Ancestors legacy comes to PS4 and Xbox One with the same quality within the RTS genre.However, the control is not so well adapted to be comfortable to play with a traditional pad.

    If you’re looking for a beefy console RTS experience that’s inspired by real events and oozing violence out of every bloody orifice, then look no further than Ancestors Legacy. It may not be the perfect experience, but it’s shockingly solid, especially when you consider the design hurdles that the development team must have been facing. This is the perfect entry-point for anyone who’s been curious about real time strategy, when armed with only a Dualshock.

    Due to unfortunate design choices, I just wanted to rush through everything and couldn’t exactly enjoy my time with the game. In short, Ancestors Legacy felt too much like a chore to play. Saying this doesn’t bring me any joy because the Middle Ages setting and the presented factions were actually cool. The idea to make a history-based, story-driven RTS title with dynamic features could have been great, but all these sides didn’t mesh well here. I really wanted to get into the gameplay, but the best I could muster was excitement for engaging cutscenes and disturbingly alluring images.

I wish more modes and maps maybe some new features for the game, to keep this great game alive. Also i have to say the port from pc to PS4 was successful and the controlling is fast and easy to learn. Expand
