Gather your armies and fight!

After three years of production Under Siege is ready to hit the PlayStation3!
Under Siege is an action and strategy game in real time, where a small group of heroes fight against a huge invading army. The game is set in a medieval fantasy world and follows the story of Eirik, Kari and Asgeir. Designed to be played with the Dualshock3 controller or the PlayStation Move controller.









The built-in editor is one of Under Siege's most interesting features; it allows players to create their own maps and game modes. The same exact tool that was used by the team to create all of the levels is available to everyone from the start, and there is no need to play through the campaign to unlock anything.

Some cool features:
- PlayStation®Move support
- 2 players online and splitscreen
- Video and audio chat for online gaming
- Custom soundtrack support
- Video and scren shot capture supported
- Plays in Full HD 1080p
- Support for Dolby Digital 5.1
- Available in 6 languages

We also decided to release for free our Under Siege Comic Book. Watch, download or print here!

The game is out and is only $10 for PS+ members, which is basically $10 for everyone the first month once the PSN Welcome Back goodies are given out.

I'm not an RTS player, but the impressions are good from gamers at forums like NeoGAF. The optional Move controls are getting exceptional praise for how well it works, and I'm hearing that the 1080P graphics are gorgeous. Too bad there won't be a demo soon (if ever).

Good luck with the sales, Seed Studios.

I purchased this and really like the look. I have only just begun the single player campaign so can not comment too much on the depth of the title, but I am at this point satisfied with my $10 purchase.

I did struggle with the Move control/calibration. When the Move controller was turned on I could not get the camera to stop spinning. I am not sure what I was doing wrong. Any ideas?

Turned it off and played the first mission with the DS3 only. It was nice enough, but I can see where Move control with point and click type accuracy would be very welcome. If I get some help here I'll try it again, or next time I play will try to make sure I have a bit more time to fool with getting it set up properly.

The visuals are very cool though, can't wait to get deeper in to it.

One negative comment I've heard is that it is a very challenging game (ign.com harshly slammed it almost solely because it was too hard for them, even on easy ).

However, that issue is being dealt with (along with a few others) in the upcoming patch:

Quote:


These are the preliminary patch notes for the next patches. Things may change during testing and development, but we will keep this post updated. Full patch notes will be included when installing the patch on the PS3.

Patch 1.02 (In testing)

- ADDED: New option to enable additional post processing at high resolutions
- ADDED: New option to disable edge scrolling when using the PlayStation Move controller
- ADDED: Players can now continue the campaign from any level they have already finished, instead of only the last
- ADDED: Antialiasing at 720p and lower resolutions (MLAA)
- CHANGE: Player units now only pursue nearby enemies up to 5 meters from the position ordered by the player, and return there after either killing the enemy or if they get too far
- CHANGE: Improvements to controller dead zone handling
- CHANGE: No longer necessary to reassign the navigation controller to slot 1
- CHANGE: Player units in casual difficulty receive less damage
- CHANGE: Enemy units in all difficulty levels no longer benefit from flanking or critical bonus (only affects single player)
- CHANGE: General performance improvements and shorter load times
- CHANGE: If a player disconnects during a ranked match, the other player is automatically awarded a win
- CHANGE: Balance adjustments
- FIX: Players in casual difficulty receive double the gold from killing enemies
- FIX: Improvements to online play
- Several minor adjustments and fixes


Patch 1.03 (Being worked on)

- ADDED: Map sharing feature
- CHANGE: 720p video recording

Under Siege PSN Code Giveaway

Quote:


Under Siege is a real-time strategy game for the PlayStation Network. Developer Seed Studios provides players an exclusive RTS experience on the PSN featuring a full single-player campaign, multiplayer (co-operative/split-screen), and custom map editor.

The title also supports 1080p HD visuals, PlayStation Move, Dolby Digital 5.1 audio, audio and video chat, 720p video recording, screenshot capture, and custom soundtracks.

Due to the PlayStation Network outage a few months ago, many game developers had their titles bunched together, missing highlight time on the PlayStation Network and suffering unforeseeable impacts to the outage. Under Siege was one of these titles. Since Under Siege is a PlayStation Network exclusive from an indie developer, and the game features stunning user customization for allowing many different game types for multiplayer, we’d like to give the game some more attention.
