KINGS OF WAR
INSPIRED BY THE CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED KOHAN SERIES
Sugar Land, TX (May 12, 2003) - TimeGate Studios, Inc. announced today that it is developing KINGS OF WAR, a fantasy real-time strategy game inspired by TimeGate's critically acclaimed Kohan series.

The original development team behind the Kohan series is now developing an exciting new title that will feature TimeGate's trademark innovation and depth of gameplay.
KINGS OF WAR immerses players in the world of the Kohan as one of the immortals who lead the fight against an ancient evil that has risen again and is bent on destroying civilization forever. The story unfolds as all-out war plunges the world into chaos.
