Players control tens of thousands of troops - including archers, infantry, riflemen, and the powerful cavalry - and engage them in epic battles from the Warring States Period of seventeenth century Japan. Taking on the role of Japan's most fearsome warlords, players guide their battalions into decisive conflicts and provide the leadership to rewrite the history of a nation.
Beautiful, rich environments and ultra-detailed, storied characters dazzle the eyes and imagination. And Kessen introduces Agent Technology into the control of troops, which makes individualistic behavior in the context of group action sequences extremely realistic.
Players can command and interact with massive numbers of 3-D characters on screen at one time. Betrayal, assistance, revenge . . . they each have their place in Kessen. The high of victory or the humiliation of defeat are all in the hands of the Commander and their ability to read the eddies of war.
