The Fantasy Tactics Game You Can Play Against A Friend

By Spencer . April 22, 2013 . 3:06pm


Ravenmark is one of the deepest strategy games on iOS and the team at Witching Hour are making a new entry in the series with PvP. Six years after The Scourge of Estellion, Eclisse is still at war in Ravenmark: Mercenaries. You play as a mercenary brigade commander caught between three nations. Since you’re for hire you can choose which nation to assist when their land comes under attack or settle petty conflicts for quick payments. 


New for Ravenmark: Mercenaries is asynchronous multiplayer which lets you challenge a friend. In this mode, players take turns moving units on the battlefield like Words With Friends so Ravenmark waits for the other player to get back before the match continues. Ravenmark: Mercenaries also adds commander traits that buffs all of the troops under you control and one Standard Bearer which augments your brigade with an aura.


Ravenmark: Mercenaries is slated for release this summer and while the game’s price hasn’t been announced it probably won’t be $54.99.

    “The Final Fantasy Tactics…”-OH WAIT.

  • I read this as Final Fantasy Tactics.

    I’ll check this out whenever I have an iphone.

  • Romangelo

    not Final Fantasy Tactics… :(

  • MrTyrant

    So most people got tricked by the title. I was too, i expected FF tactic D:

  • cloudcaelum

    I want new Brigandine… :( Sad, cuz will never happen…

  • JustThisOne

    Uhm, I’ve always wanted to play a tactics game against friends! This is awesome.

    But this will also depend on how great the customization is. To great unique teams is basically all I live for in tactics games. (Working on breeding my Batman streetpass team for Fire Emblem: Awakening right now.)

  • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

    Kinda glad they’re making more games like these. Adding asynchronous multiplayer is a good move, if it doesn’t have Bluetooth wireless multiplayer.

    And I too am disappointed that this isn’t a new FFT titleā€¦ =(

  • Callonia

    Graphics, art style is very barebones when compared to FFT.

  • SE you bastards, don’t you ever put the words “fantasy” and “tactics” next to each other in a headline again. My heart just can’t take the disappointment. :(
