Featuring both a single-player campaign and competitive multiplayer modes, Songs of Silence is a story-rich strategy game, set in two distinct fantasy worlds threatened by the all-devouring Silence. Songs of Silence features a fresh mix of turn-based kingdom management, exploration, and hero development, contrasted with short and intense real-time battles.
Unleash your armies in exciting real-time battles and support them by casting powerful combat spells from your heroes. With more than 100 different units available, there’s plenty of deep customization when it comes to constructing your very own army. Engagements are decisive and focused, only lasting around a minute!
Songs of Silence offers a fresh take on strategy games where cards represent the unique actions granted by heroes and locations. Each faction and hero has a distinct play style – both on the strategic map and in battle. Choose from hundreds of cards ranging from boosting the growth of your cities to spreading the life-devouring Silence. The options are nearly limitless!
Songs of Silence also features a soundtrack by legendary composer Hitoshi Sakimoto, best known for scoring Final Fantasy Tactics, Final Fantasy 12, and Valkyria Chronicles.
“We wanted to give players a sense of the richness and beauty of this world, as well as the scale of its wars,” said Alexander Kehr, Songs of Silence Game Director at Chimera Ent. “Players need to construct their own militia from a variety of factions, level up their armies, and play their cards right if they’re to win this epic campaign of warring worlds. Feel free to try the first couple hours of Songs of Silence in the Closed Beta right now!”
The Songs of Silence Beta consists of two different modes: there’s the first two maps of the story-driven single-player campaign mode, which follows a young queen in search for a safe haven for her people, or the solo version of the PvE mode, where you play on skirmish maps against the AI. Here players can explore the world and game mechanics on randomized maps at their own pace.
For this Beta, three biomes are available – The Light Side, The Dark World and the Silence – each with a unique landscape, factions, armies, and challenges. Players can test the 1000 Kingdoms faction, with access to dozens of various units to construct their armies.
