Historical video games are exciting because they possess the ability to offer interesting and fun “what if?” scenarios to gamers and fans of history. Games can offer all kinds of unique scenarios and defy history by straying from reality to deliver a new take on history. Several historical video games have even opted to blend multiple historical eras into one game, mixing cultures and periods in interesting new ways.
Past titles like the Deadliest Warrior quite literally grab prominent warriors from various different periods and cultures like medieval knights, pirates, and ninjas and asks, “who would win in a fight?” Historic Fighters explores a similar concept, but rather than playing like a fighting game, it features strategic gameplay.
Figures From Throughout History
Historic Fighters almost sounds like the Super Smash Bros. of history fans, in a way. The game offers a wide selection of different classes of warriors from throughout history, including pirates, cowboys, medieval knights, Spartans, Vikings, samurais, Amazonians, and ninjas.
Each class has its own set of stats and different strengths and weaknesses. Additionally, players will be able to level up their classes as they progress through the game. Starting with teal color, players will be able to slowly unlock higher-level tiers. New level tiers are color-based, with orange, green, blue, red, and black each representing higher-level tiers. It’s unknown whether the developer will be adding additional classes in the future, but eight seems like a solid start for now.
Various Historic Fighters
Each class also has three different class types, including Fighters, Rangers, and Healers. The Fighter class specifically uses melee attacks that are ideal for more short-range combat but are at a disadvantage against Range classes. As the name suggests, range classes are ranged units and are best suited to fighting from a distance. They use weapons like bows, guns, and ninja stars which are great when used from a distance, but the class is more vulnerable against close-ranged enemies. Finally, the Healers are used to heal fellow soldiers but are the most vulnerable of the three-class types. Because of this, players will have to strategically use Healers to their advantage.
