Ancestors Legacy: Saladin's Conquest is the first add-on to Ancestors Legacy, a real time strategy (RTS) set in the real world, for which the Polish studio Destructive Creations is responsible. The production introduces a new nation of Saracens to the game, as well as a related feature campaign. The authors of the basic version are responsible for the development of this title. The publisher is 1C Entertainment.
The story of Ancestors Legacy: Saladin's Conquest focuses on the title character - Saladin, or rather Salah al-Din - the greatest sultan in the history of Egypt and Syria and the founder of the Ayyubid dynasty, which ruled various regions of the Middle East between the 12th and 14th centuries. The game tells the story of the first victories and conquests of the discussed leader. There is no shortage of historical events here, such as the Battle of the Horns of Hattin and the siege of Jerusalem.
In terms of gameplay mechanics, Ancestors Legacy: Saladin's Conquest is no different than the basic version of the game - we are still dealing with a real-time strategy, in which we control the troops in battle and develop the base, thus gaining access to new tactical and strategic opportunities (however, the emphasis is on fighting - other aspects are slightly simplified).
The production introduces a new nation of Saracens to the game, along with their characteristic soldiers and war machines, such as Assassins, Grenadiers and Scorpions. The first unit specializes in short-circuit combat and has the ability to disguise itself (it hides from the enemy's sight until the enemy gets very close) and deadly traps, dealing damage over a certain area. The Grenadiers, on the other hand, as the name suggests, are a ranged troop. They can fire exploding missiles that devastate buildings and damage large groups of enemies. The third novelty - Scorpions - is the Saracen ballistics, with a different model and statistics.
In Ancestors Legacy: Saladin's Conquest we can play alone or with others. There is a five-mission feature campaign. There are also novelties prepared for the multiplayer module, in which we can play on three new maps.
Ancestors Legacy: Saladin's Conquest does not introduce any significant changes in the audiovisual setting - we are still dealing with the same, nicely looking production, made on the basis of Unreal Engine 4 engine. Noteworthy are the designs of new units, which, as in the basic version, are characterized by a high level of detail and well reflect the climate of the presented era and nation.
