World of Battles: Morningstar features balanced play, taking players to a fierce mythical land where they’ll form alliances and engaging in fierce single and multiplayer PvP battles.

To win, players maneuver their soldiers with charges, counter-charges, formations, flanking and back attacks, with tactical possibilities for solo players and teams of allies. Victories yield both experience and gold– upgrade fearsome master units with a multitude of weapons, armor, war mounts and magical jewelry.
