The folk at Cyanide Studio have a Confrontation
coming in the near future, and they want you to see what it looks like with two new screens and some artwork. After reading over the description (after the jump), it sure sounds like this game will have elements of both an RPG and RTS built in it. It was developed as an adaptation of the fantasy miniature wargame by rackham, so this make sense. The game will hit retail services in Q4 of 2011 exclusively for the PC.
NEW IMAGES OF CONFRONTATION!
Cyanide Studio, the team that brought you Blood Bowl and A Game of Thrones, unveiled today exclusive images and artwork for Confrontation! Developed exclusively for PC, Confrontation is the video game adaptation of the fantasy miniature wargame by Rackham. Finely mixing strategy and numerous role-playing game elements, Confrontation offers a rich and unique gaming experience, emphasising tactic and intense battles.

The game is set in the fantastic and original universe of Confrontation, Aarklash. As the Age of Rag'narok is approaching, you will take the lead of a troup of elite Griffin warriors infiltrating enemy territory in order to bring an end to the Scorpion threat. During their journey, they will have to face numerous threats, such as the fearsome creatures of the Alchemists of Dirz, the brutal Orcs of Bran-O-Kor, or the ferocious Wolfen pack. The route will be full of danger before they reach their destination in the depths of the Scorpion’s lands.
You will have to astutely lead and develop your squad, in order to obtain victory. Develop the soldiers and creatures that will fight by your side, and establish sharp tactics to annihilate your enemies! Careful management of your units, their powers and skills, as well as clever use of your environment will get you through near-death situations and lead you to epic victory!
