Warlords Battlecry III

Warlords Battlecry is coming back to us for the third time – and this is probably one of the unique cases in the gaming industry, when for the third time actually the same product is sold, undergoing mainly quantitative changes, and if qualitative, it’s rather huge amount, but the little things.

Well, while we are waiting for the victory of the real national team of Russia over Wales in butt games, we can indulge in virtual football battles. By the way, the club orientation clearly indicates that EA Sports will prepare for us another surprise with a thematic add-on or a significant addition to the game dedicated specifically to the European Championship.
Will wait.
