Yep, Nonstop Games's real-time strategy game Heroes of Honor might feel a bit familiar to Warcraft fans.
In fact, hardcore RTS players will probably blanch at the idea of applying the free-to-play formula to the genre in the first place. The very suggestion of paying for a victory in lieu of earning it through strategising is almost blasphemous.
Truth is, Nonstop Games is pretty fair about its free-to-play system here. Most of the wait times aren't outrageous, for one. And the dev is generous with freebies.
Still, that might not be enough to entice veteran RTS fans. Newcomers to the genre could certainly do worse than use Heroes of Honor as a RTS jumping-off point, though.
Heroes of Honor is a compelling blend of city-building and real-time warfare. Genre veterans might not appreciate the free-to-play elements, however
