Leading Eastern and Central European publisher 1C Company announced today that the hotly anticipated game Battle Lord (working title) has changed its name. Moving forward the project's official title is King's Bounty: The Legend. The change of names does not mean any changes for release dates or the main conception behind the project.
"King's Bounty: The Legend is an adventure with tactical turn-based battles and RPG elements unfolding in a rich fantasy world. The character and his army of companions travel across a huge continent, visiting dozens of different locations all connected to each other. While communicating with NPCs and fulfilling different tasks, the player controls their character in real-time mode and all battles take place in classic King's Bounty mode with a strong emphasis on turn-based tactical elements", says Ivan Magazinnikov, project lead designer.
