The Gods War

Designed by Sandy Petersen and set in the mythic world of Glorantha, The Gods War is a fast moving multiplayer strategy game set in a universe on the brink of disaster.  In The Gods War, you take the part of powerful elemental forces, battling to determine the fate of the cosmos.  The Gods War was in development for more than three years and is tightly balanced.  It is highly asymmetric featuring wildly different factions.  Fight over territory, perform miracles, and command monsters and gods.  Storm the gates of heaven itself or watch the world collapse into the Chaos Rift.

Unique Gameplay features and extreme Asymmetry

WRITTEN REVIEW

The Gods War, how good it is to be a God of Glorantha!

This afternoon we had the chance to welcome the excellent Pit De Cazernal, who came to our office to give us a demo of Sandy Petersen's Glorantha: The Gods War, which is currently being delivered. We instantly backed this game during the Kickstarter campaign, and I was eager to try it. I was indeed practically predisposed: not only do I appreciate the excellent asymmetrical mechanics of Cthulhu Wars, but I am also a huge fan of the mythical world of Glorantha, one of the most complete and original fictional universe ever created in my eyes. Mixing the two could only please me... on paper, anyway.

Well, the result exceeds my expectations. It's really a fantastic game I played, and it's interesting to say that my colleagues, who did not know Glorantha at all, loved it too......
