Fortuna is a new free-to-play Real-time Strategy game from Perfect World that provides classic tactical and managerial fun on the web browser. Set in Europe during its renaissance era, the game brings players to the conflict center of vying for power among three burgeoning royal families there.

Which family do you want to stand by, Medici, Fugger or Tudors? Choose your side and start your legacy. As usual, you start off with an almost empty land and your task is to turn it into a prosperous metropolis. If you’ve ever played any strategy game, you will pick up this one immediately; and if it is your first try of this genre, you will have no difficulty getting the hang of it either, due to its helpful tutorials and relatively low learning curve.

Fortuna

Buildings, resources, army units, researches, trade, diplomacy, alliance, battles, etc. – the established concepts in a RTS title are still the core of the gameplay. You can just follow the quest chain to handle every front and then get a developed large city after some time.

In construction, you don’t have much freedom to lay out the city in the way you wish but have to place all buildings in the pre-set slots on the land. Time and resources are the usual essence here. If you want to bypass the waiting time, spending some real-world cash is always a choice, bringing a more comfortable and quicker growth with purchased advantages.

Compared with that, you have greater control on the building of army. There are more than twenty types of units you can unlock and train in the barrack and a variety of generals you can recruit in the tavern. From the lowest soldiers to the powerful artillery, you can gradually get them all with the upgrading of your structure and further expedition in the solo campaign. As you push your army further on the PvE map, you will encounter progressively stronger enemies and fight them to horn your skills of deployment. By trial, you will figure out tactics in maneuvering troops and assigning generals to make the best in capability.

When you enter a battle, your mission ends after you made the deployment. You can’t do anything more when your army is in the battlefield. The battle is automatic. Though its animation is really engaging, there is still the lack of immersion caused by the shortage of involvement. There is the fair portion of player interaction by way of trade, politics and cooperation. If you want to make a mark in the world, it is essential to find alliances and draw upon their power to realize the ambition of domination.

To sum up, Fortuna is a relatively new RTS game with updated artwork in its grand metropolis and animated visual effects in battles. But on the whole, it is a renovation of the old strategy games at best, short of any fresh or innovative features of its own. While it still can be a solid time-killer for casual players, it doesn’t have something unique or fresh to put itself on the map.
