King's Bounty: Dark Side
Third party DRM: SteamThis game requires a free Steam account to play.
Time has come to join the Dark Journey to the other side of Teana and visit a mysterious part of the world never before seen by royal bounty hunters.
For the first time in King’s Bounty series, players will be able to choose their hero’s race as well as class. Become a fearless Orcs warrior, lead and heal your troops as a Demoness, or use dark magic as a fearsome Vampire.
The world is in turmoil. After winning the battle of Tristrem, arrogant elves plunder Orcish villages, desecrate holy shrines, and massacre the innocents. Orc-Baghyr, the greatest living Orc warrior, is forced to flee with a handful of loyal followers. He vows to return with a stronger force and retake his homeland!
Armies of human knights invade the land of Atrixus. A young Demoness named Neoleene, still mourning the death of her royal father, and her small unit of devoted imps is all that stands in the way of the invading horde.
Castle of the ancient Morton clan is threatened by an army of vampire hunters. Young Daert leaves home to seek allies among the other Dark races. All must join him or perish.
Fates of the three heroes are sealed. They come together in the depths of the Black Cave, where many centuries ago races of Light imprisoned Ancient Evil. The heroes exchange vows and share antique artifacts, then gather their armies and march to fight for the very survival of their race. They must unite against the Light or face extinction!

King's Bounty Dark Side is the newest entry in the Kings Bounty series, a turn based strategy game which is similar to the Heroes of Might and Magic series. This is going to be more of the same for the series for the most part, the engine and gameplay have gone a long time without any real improvements and it is definitely starting to show, people who have played the past games are likely to not find much new to offer here. The main change of this game is that you are now playing as the "Dark Side", or the kind of forces you would have been more likely fighting in the other games. The world and map design are less interesting than they have been in the past, giving you less reason to explore, and quests seem to be more focused on fetch quests making them much more boring than in past games. Dark Side is a lengthy game that should be played by die hard fans of the other games in the series, for new players I would recommend trying out the other games first or picking this one up when it is on sale.
