LONDON, 8 December, 2010 - Portuguese games developer Seed Studios today announced the launch of Under Siege™, a real time strategy (RTS) game developed exclusively for PlayStation®3 and The Playstation®Network. The game will be available for download towards the end of the year and will retail for £11.99 in the UK, $19.99 in the US and €14.99 throughout the rest of Europe.

Set in a medieval fantasy world, Under Siege™ sees players control a small group of heroes – Eirik, Kari and Asgeir – in a battle against the huge invading army of King Ingvar. With a single player campaign, as well as online and local multiplayer content, the game works with the DualShock/Sixaxis controller and is also one of the first games to support the Playstation® Move controller.

Under Siege™ places extreme emphasis on user-generated content and in-game battles. Using the same powerful in-game editor used by the developers, players can create their own maps to share and play online with other members of the Under Siege™ community. The game interfaces with several social networks, for example allowing users to directly upload pictures to Facebook and videos to YouTube.

Filipe Pina, Developer, Seed Studios, said, “Under Siege™ has been two years in the making and we’re delighted to be unveiling it to the Under Siege™ community. Due to their often complex control systems, many people associate real time strategy games with the PC, a keyboard and a mouse. But we were keen to demonstrate what is achievable on the Playstation®3. The new Playstation®Move controller in particular, offers some thrilling new possibilities for this genre that we wanted to take advantage of.”

Other features of Under Siege include;

  • Control scheme specially designed for the DualShock/Sixaxis Controller
  • Playstation®Move Support
  • 4 players online
  • 2 players split screen
  • Video and voice chat in game and in the lobbies
  • XMB screenshot and custom music support
  • Video recording
  • Plays in Full HD 1080p;
  • Available in 6 languages: English, German, French, Spanish, Italian and Portuguese.
