Introducing Prologues & BattlegroundsIntroducing Prologues & Battlegrounds

Dawn of the Tyrant: Prologues is the exciting precursor to the forthcoming full version of the game and a special way to experience the early Alpha version of the game.

Exclusive to our Tyrant Legions members on Patreon, those who unlock Alpha Battlegrounds access as part of their tier rewards will be among the first to try out the game and can take their part in the Prologues story by playing a series of Battlegrounds: fast-paced scenarios where they will help write the future storyline of the game through World Quests.

Introducing Prologues & Battlegrounds

Fight in fast-paced Battlegrounds

Each Battleground in the Prologues series is a playable scenario in the Alpha version of the game where players will lead and fight alongside their chosen warband in one of the many scattered clashes that will pave the way for the flames of all-out war.

Battlegrounds in Dawn of the Tyrant play host to fast and brutal battles. Some can be over and victory declared in just minutes. Choosing the best Path for your player character, selecting the right composition for your warband, and finding the perfect moment to unleash your special abilities can all lead to triumph – while a moment’s hesitation or a poor decision could see your warband wiped out or a critical objective lost.

Take part in the first World Quests

Each Battleground scenario in Prologues will include our signature World Quests feature, giving players the power to influence the future and start influencing the story before the full version of the game even starts. What happens upon the Battlegrounds of Prologues will affect the story and balance of power when Chapter I is unveiled. In fact, the first Battleground will come with no less than 10 World Quests – 5 for each faction, giving you a multitude of ways to gain Chapter Points and get your faction ahead.

Introducing Prologues & Battlegrounds

Reveal the world through Explore Mode

Players will quickly discover that Battlegrounds are dangerous places where there is barely time for thought before the ensuing clash of steel. To give you a look at a different side of these zones and experience them fully, every Battleground zone in Prologues will also include Explore Mode.

Under cover of night, you can scout through each zone, discover more about these strange lands and reveal their mysteries – though doing so may well bring threats of its own.

How you can get involved

You can secure your place to be part of the Dawn of the Tyrant: Prologues story right now by becoming a Patron.

Alpha Battlegrounds access will unlock with our $5 per month Tyrant Legionnaire tier, or choose our exclusive First Generation tier to become one of the legendary veteran warriors of the War in Heaven.

Prologues is an exciting step for us to share the world we have so carefully crafted with our fans. It also means we can give our first players a voice in helping us make a better game. We would love to hear your thoughts and feedback as we work though improving gameplay, enhancing the characters and environments of the game world, optimising the various game systems and generally getting things battle-ready for Chapter I.

All of our tiers also include Discord roles, giving you access to the Dawn of the Tyrant Discord server, where you can chat with the team and connect with other players – or simply use the Community tab on Patreon.

      Project Story: Condors and Ocelots have been at war for generations. Battles have left some settlements in ruins. Others teem with refugees. Even away from the fighting, towns and villages suffer from having their fighting-age citizens lured away or conscripted by one faction or the other. Players control their armies and try to wipe out their opponents! Use terrain, abilities and pure cowardice if need be to achieve victory for your faction!

      The Riverine design looking like a snake didn’t work very well with the animation so we re-designed this creature to look more like a colourful caterpillar type of animal.

      mod.io is an cross platform mod service created by the team behind ModDB.com and IndieDB.com. It can be integrated in-game using the  REST API, C/C++ SDK or engine plugins (if available) Unity is ready and Unreal Engine is in development.
      Features include:
      Platform agnostic (support 1 click mod installs on Steam, Epic Games Store, Discord, GOG, itch.io and even consoles in the future) Clientless (mod.io has no other dependencies and works behind the scenes in your game) Embeddable web app UI, so you can integrate your mod community anywhere Powerful search, filtering and tagging of mods Moderation and reporting systems built-in Steps to getting mod.io integrated:
      Add your game to our test environment or production Read our API documentation for an overview of how mod.io works Choose an Engine Plugin, API or SDK to integrate mod.io into your game and mod making tools Ready to launch? Add your game to our production environment then let's discuss promoting your release Need help? Our team is available on Discord to assist and our getting started guide has more information for you  
      Benefits of using mod.io:
      mod.io offers the same core functionality as Steamworks Workshop (1 click mod installs in-game), plus mod hosting, moderation and all of the critical pieces needed. Where we differ is our approach to modding and the flexibility a REST API offers. For example: 
      Our API is not dependent on a client or SDK, allowing you to run mod.io in many places such as your homepage and launchers Designing a good mod browsing UI is hard, our plugins ship with a UI built in to save you a lot of effort and help your mods stand out We don’t apply rules globally, so if you want to enable patronage, sales or other experimental features, reach out to discuss Our platform is built by the super experienced ModDB.com team and is continually improving for your benefit Your community can consume the mod.io API to build modding fan sites or discord bots if they want Large studios and publishers:
      A private white label option is available to license, if you want a fully featured mod-platform that you can control and host in-house. Contact us to discuss.
