After spending about a year in Early Access, the Mount & Blade inspired action-RPG Empire of Ember is now nearly ready for launch. Once it arrives on January 20th it'll bring with it a combat system designed around massive battles between armies, the ability to design and fully demolish fortresses, and just to spice things up a bit, a bunch of dungeons to pillage for loot and resources in between all of the warmongering.

You can get a pretty good idea of how all of this translates into actual gameplay through the recently posted trailer. Have a peek:

As is tradition, the full release will also be accompanied by a major update. The exact details have not been revealed just yet, but considering that the previous update added the finale, it's highly likely the launch patch will be primarily about polishing up the existing content and getting rid of any remaining bugs.

Whatever the actual answer may be, you can learn more about Empire of Ember, as well as keep an eye on its development moving forward, over at Steam. Enjoy!
