About Far Wilds
The Far Wilds, an online strategy game in a fantasy setting that combines elements of collectible card games, real-time strategy and massively multiplayer online games. The Far Wilds emphasizes strategy and clever plays rather than fast clicking. The battlefield is randomly generated so each game is very different. Players must constantly be adapting to the changing game conditions. In addition to this higher level of strategy the configurable armies gives The Far Wilds unique, interesting and addictive gameplay.
Ages have gone by since the ancient evil was sealed behind the rift. The civilized world has since been isolated behind a great wall of defense. Now a few brave souls have ventured out into the wilds to build their kingdoms and carve out new realms in the wilderness beyond the wall.
You are one of these brave souls, a warlord in the outskirts of the known world struggling to establish a kingdom in the wild lands. You must use strategy and wits to establish yourself and not be pushed back further into the wilderness. Failure results in your death and the death of your army, and success cannot be measured in mortal terms.
