Strategy sequel Grand Ages: Medieval is coming to PS4

Prepare to conquer medieval Europe on 25th September

Hello PlayStation fans! The team and I at Gaming Minds Studios have been looking forward to sharing this news with you for some time – our new strategy title Grand Ages: Medieval will be launching on the PS4 on 25th September. We’ve been working diligently on the PS4 version for some time, so it’s a big deal for us that I can finally introduce the game to the PlayStation community today.

To give you a quick introduction, Grand Ages: Medieval is the second entry in the Grand Ages series and the first to appear on a home console. While this is our first title for PS4, the development team at Gaming Minds is comprised of strategy veterans with experience going back 19 years, and we’ve been releasing strategy titles on Sony platforms as far back as the PS2 era. Along with our publishers Kalypso Media, we’re really happy to be back on PlayStation and continuing the Sony tradition by releasing Grand Ages: Medieval on PS4.

For those new to the genre, Grand Ages: Medieval is a real-time, grand scale strategy game that takes place in the High Middle Ages. The game begins in the year 1050 A.D. as you assume the role of a mayor governing a small European settlement. Your goal is to lead your people through the decades by expanding your trade routes and nation’s influence; and eventually, begin conquering all of Europe.

Aspiring empire builders will have to utilise politics, trade, warfare and research advancing technologies to assert their empiric control over the 20 million kilometre playing area. With that kind of scale we hope you’ll begin to see just how “grand scale” Grand Ages: Medieval’s campaign will be.

In addition, we’ll have an exciting eight-player multiplayer mode available for when you want to take a breather from the main campaign. A cool and unique feature of our multiplayer is that you’ll be able to set commands and protocols that let you take breaks from multiplayer without ever having to leave the game. This feature is great for playing with and against friends in other territories when timezones interrupt your schedule, but should only be used sparingly as you may come back and find you’ve slept through your own defeat.

So, on behalf of the entire team at Gaming Minds Studios I really hope you’ll be looking forward to the release of Grand Ages: Medieval on PS4 this September, and we look forward to sharing more with you before launch.

  • Have to admit I didn’t expect to see a strategy game like this on PS4, but this looks very, very cool. A 20m km playing area sounds freaking huge!

  • This looks good i will be gettig this

  • The video looks amazing. Please upload PS4 footage and how it will work on a controller.

    As a veteran of Medieval Total War, Settlers and Age of Empires player I am looking forward to playing this.

  • I was never into this kind of thing until Game of Thrones, but there we go! Looks interesting :-)

  • What changes have you made to the user interface to make it good for PS4?

  • Nice one Team Gaming Minds :). I enjoyed Grand Ages Rome, but think the broader approach you’re taking with GA:Medieval has the potential to give the game a lot more depth/replayability, looking forward to giving it a run on PS4 :).

  • your charging full retail price on aa console for a strategy game. are you serious because you must be having a laugh. expect very, very low sales.

  • Yes, finallly! After so many uninteresting game announcements something new and different for the PS4. Somehow this reminds me of Lords of the Realm, a game I loved to play. This looks nice and since I love medieval times, I have to get this :D

    In case people don’t know, the physical release comes with 2 DLC packs (Camelot and Ancient Wonders) and a Tech-Tree Poster. Camelot gives you a special starting castle in your starting town and Ancient Wonders adds points of interest to the map. There will be a download version, but I don’t know if those DLC’s are included in that one as well.

    A real shame about the price though…. why do PS4 owners have to pay €20 more then PC owners?

  • I was a huge fan of the total war series back in the day – if this is half as good I’m in.
