Epsom, UK – March 07, 2014.

“Science is the captain, and practice the soldiers.” (Leonardo Da Vinci)

Europe, the 16 th century. Tensions in the continent have reached their climax. Mighty lords want to expand their influence at all cost and war appears inevitable. But this war is bound to be different from the previous ones; because this time one man has changed the rules of war for ever. This genius, Leonardo da Vinci, has developed cutting edge inventions that have major consequences for warfare - and the nobles have jumped on this opportunity to strengthen their armies and update their tactics!

In Da Vinci’s Art of War on iPad, the players will join a faction and fight their way to conquer European provinces. They will be confronted with tough AI opponents that will adopt various behaviors and strategies so that every game is very different. As they earn Victory Points, they will have to take economic and military decisions and invest in Da Vinci’s technologies to boost their armies and territory production levels.

Inspired by the famous boardgame Magnifico, Da Vinci’s Art of War has been especially designed for tablets. Players can move units, build defense structures and develop dreadful war machines simply and easily. However, only the best tacticians will be able to adapt to this new European context and bet on the inventions that really make the difference!

Get more information on Da Vinci: Art of War from the official trailer of the game and its product page.
