Battle Realms

The first in a series of games developed by Liquid Entertainment and published by Crave Entertainment, the real-time strategy game Battle Realms is set in a story-driven fantasy world where samurai roam, surrounded by werewolves, ninjas, and geisha warriors. Battle Realms offers a deep and complex story, intensely detailed anime-inspired art, a living resource system, ever-changing strategies, and imaginative units, along with a unique 3D engine. The story of honor and heroism combines with clear goals and detailed character development throughout.

Guide the fate of Kenji, heir to the fallen Serpent Empire, who, having returned to his homeland after a seven-year exile, must now make a choice whether to subjugate or liberate his feuding land. Standing against him are the wild, untamed Wolf Clan and the malignant Lotus Clan in a world that is visually alive -- a place where peasants go about their daily tasks, and time marches on around you regardless of your actions. A wise sensei smokes his pipe outside the dojo while warriors train inside, birds nestle and fly among the trees and just down the road, a geisha bathes in a hot spring outside her home. In Battle Realms ninjas vanish in clouds of smoke, monks leap to impossible heights, and Zen archers can hit sparrows from across the battlefield while blindfolded.

Battle Realms is also set in a world that features a "living resource system," so how you manage your resources has a direct impact on your remaining tactical decisions throughout the game. If you use all of your peasants to grow rice, the town economy will boom and more options for troop armament and technological advancement will open. At the same time, the number of troops diminishes, because the peasants are busy farming and not training to become warriors. You will need to plan your strategy carefully to succeed.

Battle Realms' combat system is distinguished by its combat engagement AI because units intelligently react to terrain, opponent ability, and distance in combat situations. If a mounted samurai is on a hilltop firing down upon troops in the distance, the unit will know to use its secondary weapon, the Katana (a hand-to-hand weapon) when the opposing troops come into close range. In addition, if the opponent is using muskets or other ranged weapons, the unit will know to take cover to avoid bullets.

Liquid, drawing on their experience working with the Command & Conquer and StarCraft development teams, worked diligently to balance the units in the game and used many sources for inspiration, including Asian cinema.

Battle Realms: Winter of the Wolf

Players return to the mystical, Asian-influenced Battle Realms in this prequel add-on set seven years before the events of the first game. Players take the role of Grayback, an unproven chieftain of the scattered Wolf Clan, who must reunite his people and release them from oppression. Grayback must make wise use of his limited assets, overcoming the superior numbers of his powerful enemies with cunning tactics.

Like many good RTS expansion packages, Battle Realms: Winter of the Wolf adds new missions, weapons, and units. Along with the many warriors available through the game's distinctive "Unit Alchemy" system, advanced settlements can now produce new Zen Master characters, with special abilities that may prove crucial in the Wolf Clan's campaign for freedom. Previously established unit powers also find new functionality, in puzzle-solving scenario elements that test brains as well as brawn. Winter of the Wolf also brings a new winter setting to the game, in which rice grows more slowly and units may be tracked by the footprints they leave in the snow. The expansion pack was developed by Liquid Entertainment, the same firm that crafted the first game.

For Windows (32-bit Systems) [*Please review compatibility/platform sections in 'What You Get']


This item is for the original media, and includes only the media (ie. CD, floppy ...) UNLESS specifically stated above and/or in the title. If more than just the media is included, it will state which items are (ie. box, manual, etc ). Items that come in a sleeve refer to a generic CD sleeve (typically white) and will be sent with shipping protection to avoid damage during transit. If available, we will also send the front and/or back CD inserts if in stock. If these are important to you, please message us to verify we have them available to send. Please do not assume items are included other than what's stated. Again, ask questions PRIOR to purchasing if you have any concerns.


All images/pictures are stock photos and are for reference only, mainly to show the type of game you will be getting. Please read "WHAT YOU GET" for what is included with the media. Screenshots may vary based on your own computer system, video card, monitor, etc.


Computers are like people, each one is different. Unlike console games, a computer game may install and work flawlessly on one system but may need adjustments on another. This is due to a variety of factors, mainly the OS platform running, video card you have, drivers, protection software installed, etc. Many times manufacturers release updates to games to fix bugs and add enhancements. We would be happy to help get the game going on your computer, but ultimately compatibility issues are the responsibility of the buyer. We suggest going to Google and searching for the name of the game along with the words "system requirements" to determine if your system is suitable. Ultimately, we are not responsible for software compatibility problems or publisher's errors.


Stated within the auction is what platform the game will work on (ie. Windows, Mac, Linux...) This is a generic statement and specific platform versions (ie. XP, Vista...) will have to be researched by the buyer. Games that came out PRIOR to XP or higher will not specifically state they will work on that release, but only because they came out before those versions were made. Many, if not most, will work on XP or higher with a few quick adjustments. We provide instructions with all items purchased on how to do this adjustment using the Program Compatibility Wizard. If we find out that an item will definately not work on a specific version, we will state it. For DOS games, you may need to play it with a free DOSbox program if the Program Compatibility Wizard does not work.

64-Bit Windows OS Systems:
For 64-bit Operating Systems, older games most likely will NOT work due to 64-bit systems not being able to run 16-bit programming code (most games prior to 2000). For DOS games, you may need to play it with a free DOSbox program.

Macintosh Systems:
For Macintosh programs, most older games will need to be run in Classic Environment if you have a MAC OS X 10.0 - 10.4 version. Please research Google on how to do this, or send us a message for information prior to purchasing. If your MAC OS system doesn't support Classic Environment (ie. MAC OS X 10.5 or Higher OR Intel Macs), you will have to try running it using the free program called SheepShaver, but compatibility is not ensured. Please research prior to purchasing or ask questions.


Please verify you have the required hardware in order to use the specified media (ie. CD, DVD, floppy drives, etc.) If the item comes as a floppy disc, make sure you have either the needed 3.5" floppy drive or the bigger and older 5.25" floppy drive.


  • Ask questions PRIOR to purchasing an order to avoid any confusion.
  • Be patient if there are problems during installation or gameplay. Typically someone else has already ran into that problem and has listed a solution online. Contact us and we will do our best to help.
  • Be sure to update your video card drivers and search for updates to the game from the manufacturer.


    We typically ship all items out within 1-2 business days after payment is received. In regards to the stated shipping and handling, remember that these costs include more than just postage.

    International buyers please email/chat with us to determine if you are eligible for shipping of a specific product. If you are, then international buyers not shipping to an address within the U.S. can expect their orders to take anywhere from 5 days to 4 weeks to be received, depending on how fast/well USPS is moving. Additionally, international orders typically have to go through governmental customs, which can delay the arrival process. Import duties, taxes, and charges are not included in the item price or shipping cost. These charges are the buyer's responsibility. Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to buying. Customs fees are normally charged by the shipping company or collected when you pick the item up. These fees are not additional shipping charges.
