Tower defence game innovated with multiplayer raiding.
Caravan War takes the inherent challenge from the historical Silk Road trading route and turns it into a beautifully illustrated multiplayer tower defence game. Blending strategy and pre-battle planning, you are tasked with managing a commercial empire with immense resources – including a well-equipped caravan perfect for acquiring goods and gold. Assemble a squad with carefully chosen towers and units (some of them sporting special abilities), and then venture into the world by undertaking campaigns and ambushes.
You can assemble your army as you see fit, and set up your caravan based on each unit’s distinct skills. You’ll also need to build and expand the kingdom in return for resources and technology. You can play in both player versus enemy and player versus player modes.
Phuong Nguyen Vu, Product Lead at Hiker Games said of the multiplayer:
“We love tower defense games – but we also know that the genre is in need of some innovation. The answer is multiplayer. Caravan War is laser-focused on PvP – with kinetic gameplay not unlike a real-time strategy game, since you do whatever it takes to defend your caravan. Sure, we have PvE combat as well – but there’s nothing quite like building up a powerful squad and grinding your enemies to dust. Who says hostile takeovers can’t be fun?”
