Blood of the Warrior – Gameplay
This is a fighting game in all its glory. Players are constantly under siege by opposing warring nations’ troops. There are thirty-nine cities, with designated battlegrounds and hundreds of enemies waiting to attack. Capital cities and palaces serve as a safe haven, with the option of challenging another player if inclined. PvP duels within the city limits can only take place if accepted. NPCs stationed along specific spots highlighted with a green arrow in the city allow players to go on missions and participate in scheduled wars. Missions in W3K can vary from collecting wood to invading enemy camps. Even the simplest missions will require combat. Killing an enemy will produce needed items to complete quests. When an enemy is destroyed, blood splatters in the air and on the ground as the fallen warrior cries out in defeat. The fast-paced bloodshed and mayhem of the game is very entertaining, and addictive as well.
