GS2 Games announced that Broadsword: Warlord Edition is coming May 7, 2024 to retail for Switch. Designed and developed by Hoplite Research Games, Broadsword: Warlord Edition, the turn-based tactical strategy game recreates historical conflicts in Medieval Europe, allowing players to reimagine battles featuring legendary figures such as Henry III and Joan of Arc.

Turn-based strategy gameplay compels players through dramatic missions in the Middle Ages as they take command of one of five different armies: the English, the French, the Spanish, the Poles or the Hapsburgs, and see their troops fight boldly in full 3D battle action! Lead various units into battle, including archers, winged hussars, knights, longbowmen, pikemen, and catapults, with special units depending on nationality. Special units feature historical figures such as Henry III, Joan of Arc, Wladylaw I of Poland, Peter of Castile and others who bestow special ‘hero’ powers and can affect the entire battlefield with a strategic advantage.

Plan wisely! Historically accurate maps provide distinct weather conditions that can help or hinder your troops. Players can utilize the environment to gain defensive bonuses and healing, or suffer movement penalties. Construct and upgrade buildings like town centers, mines, mills and farms to raise units and create resources for your empire. Research different technologies like forestry, ballistics, husbandry and more to advance your empire’s technology. Tactical use of mercenaries can strengthen your army and give you an edge.
