As the player, you are one of the many Atelian warriors of Warlord Sahrab’s Army. You are charged with the defense of the city-states in a last ditch effort to overcome the invaders. Along with your comrades, either controlled by friends in multiplayer or the computer in single player, you must defend and make a final stand to fight for Atelian independence.
Iron Grip: Warlord revolves around fighting off large invading armies with a small elite group in an urban setting. Players must deploy defenses and ensure their stronghold survives wave after wave of Confederation warriors without being overwhelmed. This scale of battle is achieved by combining real-time strategy construction with first-person combat to create the ultimate defense game.
