How much time do I need to beat Ancestors Legacy?
Ancestors Legacy features 6 campaigns - each has 5 missions. These missions can be really long and can often take you more than an hour. This means that the campaign on the default difficulty level can take you 25-30 hours to beat. In addition to that the game also has skirmishes mode where you can fight on special maps and in two different modes - Annihilation and Domination. All of this makes Ancestors Legacy a lengthy RTS with a lot of content - what is more, the developers are planning on releasing more historical campaigns.
Ancestors Legacy in a nutshell
- A complex RTS game developed by Destructive Creations, a Polish indie developer. The game is set in medieval times and the campaign is based on historical events.
- During the game you will control four different factions: Slavs, Germans, Vikings and Anglo-Saxons.
- The game mechanics focus on large-scale battles and the key to success is to come up with the right tactic based on terrain.
- Besides battles in open space, you can also conquer towns and villages that belong to your enemies. Don't forget about economics: expand your base and gather resources.

Ancestors Legacy Video Game
- genre: Strategy
- developer: Destructive Creations
- publisher: 1C
- platform: PC, XONE, PS4
Ancestors for PC, PS4 and XONE is a complex real-time strategy game developed by an independent Polish studio, Destructive Creations. Developers who work there have a reputation of being scandalous due to their controversial shoot’em up game Hatred and rail shooter IS Defense where the players repel an invasion of the Daesh. Despite that, Destructive Creations managed to establish cooperation with 1C, a company that published the game in topic. Initially, Ancestors was released on PCs and Xbox One and on a later date on PlayStation 4.
Like many other RTS games, Ancestors for PC, PS4 and XONE focuses on large-scale battles. Figuring out appropriate tactics that consider the lay of the land and skillfully flanking the enemy are the key elements that will lead to victory. Our soldiers’ morale and experience influence their combat effectiveness. Cutting off our enemies’ supply lines is also an important aspect of gameplay because along with the open-field battles, we will be able to besiege enemy towns and villages. We will also have to pay some attention to the economic side of our conquest (i.e. gathering materials and resources, upgrading and improving our headquarters).
What makes Ancestors stand out among the similar games is the low entry threshold – both newcomers and experienced players will feel at home when playing it. What makes the game even more interesting is the possibility of observing the battle from the first-person perspective of one of our soldiers.
Ancestors for PC, PS4 and XONE features high quality 3D visuals and uses Unreal Engine 4. The game’s environment is full of detail, just like the military units we will lead and fight against. Advanced particle effects (like realistic fire and smoke) only complement the already visually pleasing game.
