- Ironhide published a blog post and teaser trailer for the next Kingdom Rush game.
- The fourth in the series, Kingdom Rush: Vengeance will play from the perspective of Vez’nan, the series’ antagonist.
- No release date was announced, but there is an email list you can subscribe to.
The series of fantasy tower defense games – including the original Kingdom Rush, Kingdom Rush: Frontiers, and Kingdom Rush: Origins – are some of the highest-rated titles in the Google Play Store. A new installment in the series hasn’t launched since Kingdom Rush: Origins landed in 2014.
Needless to say, fans are likely foaming at the mouth to get a new game. Check out the teaser trailer for the upcoming Kingdom Rush: Vengeance:
The trailer doesn’t give us much hard info about the game, but it does back up the rumor that the new installment will focus on series antagonist Vez’nan. In the Ironhide blog post today, the game studio says that “you’ll need to lead the troops and assist the almighty Vez’nan” while he conquers his foes.
The idea of making a game where you play as the enemy rather than the hero is not a new concept – games as old as 1993’s Jurassic Park (where you are a raptor) or 1998’s Super Mario Land 3 (where you are Wario) are just two examples. But any time you get to turn a franchise on its head to play the villain instead of the hero is always fun.
Ironhide doesn’t give any information about when we can expect to actually play Kingdom Rush: Vengeance. However, you can enter your email here to get notified of all the upcoming news about the game, and possibly even get some beta play.
