SANTA CLARA, Calif. – Aug 5, 2011 – Aeria Games, a leading global publisher of free-to-play online games, today released details about the back story for Golden Age, its upcoming exclusive Real-Time Strategy (RTS) browser-based title. Golden Age unfolds a riveting tale of murder, bloodshed, opportunity and enterprise. Based on true events from medieval European history, Golden Age starts its epic storyline with the rumored conquests of real-life historical figure Jacques de Molay, the last known Grand Master of the powerful Order of Knights Templar.
Following Molay's documented outrage at baseless arrests of the Knights Templar in 1307 A.D., Golden Age introduces a fellow knight said to have received a map to a lost continent from Molay himself. At Molay’s request, the knight secretly leads 400 Knights Templar to safety in these unknown lands. Players enter the tumultuous Golden Age setting shortly following the Templars’ discovery and colonization of the mysterious treasure-filled region, and must defend their developing fortresses from oncoming waves of greedy plunderers.
Players take their roles in Golden Age as one of three distinct classes of citizens:
- Knight Templar – Based on fictional members of the historical Order who fled persecution in France in search of a lost land of gold and treasure.
- Ibero Alliance – A later group established in the new land on the democratic principles of ancient Greece and Rome.
- Rhine Commerce Guild - Founded by a traveling merchant and his greedy civilian followers, this class of citizens has real-life roots in medieval Germany.
