Here. Billed as the “world’s first collectible online real-time strategy game”, Saga is readying for a March 4 launch with an open beta which starts today.
The site says, “The exact time isn’t nailed down yet, but we hope to have things up and running as soon as possible.” Old skool. It’s worth looking at if only for the really clever Flash dragon that flies past the navigation at the top. May as well give the game a go while you’re at it.

Phantagram’s working with Korean outfit Blueside to create a sequel to Xbox strategy title, Kingdom of Fire. The original was well-liked among the Xbox hardcore at the time (2004), who will no doubt rejoice to learn that the sequel, named Kingdom Under Fire II, is a “MMOARTS” (massively multiplayer online action real-time strategy) title. It’s a gothic, knights and monster affair, with lots of swords and horses.
Have a look at the link for screens. Kingdom Under Fire II releases in 2009.
