A new free to play MMORTS has been released into the big wide world, its name, World of Battles. I say free to play, but of course that is never really the case any more, gems are the secret behind this game, purchase gems and it sounds like you will get a huge advantage over non-paying gamers.
The debut trailer shows a nice enough looking game with plenty of choices for customisation of your units. There is a global campaign with the forces for Good and Evil fighting for supremacy while a Neutral grouping strive to maintain the balance. Usual fantasy staples are present, Elves, Dark Elves, Orcs and the spooky sounding Undead.
