As the Captain of the Palace Guard, you must defeat your enemies by building up your military force and gaining territory, and the only way to do this is to defeat the rivals, who are in no hurry to conquer your kingdom. This RTS game will put you in the shoes of a medieval king and will have you waging a war to regain lost provinces. The game’s campaign mode is set during the Peasants’ Revolt in England.
The game also introduces mercenaries and siege weapons, which can be hired in the town hall. You can hire these mercenaries for a certain price, from one to five gold pieces. The mercenaries range from a rogue who slings rocks at enemies to a giant axe wielding warrior. In the Peasants Revolt campaign, you can even hire mercenaries and pay them with gold.
Another essential component of Knights and Merchants: The Peasants Revolt is its economy. Every citizen and unit in the town has an upkeep cost. Despite its simple design, a skilled player must pay close attention to food production and other economic features. The town’s roads and designs must also be taken into account. Once these features are in place, you can start building your towns and conquering the world!
The Peasants Revolt contains both the original campaign and a brand new campaign. It also includes a skirmish mode. Originally planned as a free expansion pack, it was delayed for unknown reasons, but was eventually released as a commercial product. This version features the original campaign as well as many new missions. The game also includes new buildings and technology, but it is a separate game.
