RAVENMARK: Mercenaries

By Witching Hour Studios

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Build your mercenary army and raise your banner to epic heights in a broken, ravaged world. Wage head-to-head battles against other players in the finest turn-based strategy wargame, RAVENMARK: Mercenaries!

**** Selected as the App Store's Best of 2013 for Indie Games in Singapore! ****

RAVENMARK: Mercenaries is FREE TO WIN! The game was designed such that you do not need to spend real money to defeat other players, only your wits. However, certain options to customise your army, which are not required for enjoyment of the game, may be purchased with real money. Additionally, the game is ad-supported. If you prefer a seamless play experience without ads, please consider supporting us by purchasing the Collector’s Edition IAP to remove ads.

Mercenaries delivers an evolution of the turn-based strategy mechanics that won critics over in the original 2011 wargame, RAVENMARK: Scourge of Estellion. Mull over strategic troop placement in the Command Phase, before committing your orders into the “we-go” Battle Phase where friend and foe move and attack in the same phase. Conquer your foes with grit and tactical superiority!

Challenge other human players to asynchronous battles, or embark on mercenary contracts to sharpen your skills on your own and gain favour with each of the warring nations. As your mercenary company grows rich in silver and renown, be prepared to face off against tougher challengers in multiplayer matches.

Acquire the services of diverse Brigades of mercenaries, each with their own history and combat styles. Mix and match these Brigades together to form your own style of combat! As you gain experience in battle, experiment with Commander Traits to embellish your style of command, and hire Advisors to reap greater bounties from your battles.

Stalwart combat features like Standing Orders and Formations return to offer expanded tactical options for players, while new features such as Zone of Control and the Standard Bearer throw game-changing twists into battle! Observe the satisfying progression of your mercenary company as your Brigades harden with battle experience.

In the events of Mercenaries, set six years after the events of the original RAVENMARK, the world of Eclisse has been scarred irrevocably by the vendetta of Estellion’s vengeful new ruler, the Scarlet Empress. Players may delve into the world’s rich lore and discover the evolved power struggle between the three warring nations: once-glorious Estellion, the fledgling Varishah, and silent but stern Esotre.

RAVENMARK: Mercenaries requires a network connection to play. Also, please note that the game is a constant work in progress. Certain aspects of the game involving multiplayer combat may be rebalanced from time to time to improve the player experience.

What's New in Version 1.10

- The battle replay system has been overhauled! Players can now choose whether to save replays of specific matches in progress. Players will be also able to watch the playback of any round of a given battle at any time during the Command Phase, not just the previous round.

- Everyplay has been updated! With the new replay system, players can now upload entire battles.

- Players may now enter chat with their opponents directly from the multiplayer lobby, without having to load up the specific battle with that opponent. Push notifications for chat also link directly to that opponent's chat window without loading the specific battle.

- Numerous optimizations and bug fixes.

Excellent TBS with deep lore

I didn't come into Ravenmark expecting much. I saw a wide UI, mandatory accounts, and as I entered a tutorial level I was prepared to prematurely judge it. But it's a lot deeper: the lore is ridiculously detailed, the battles complex. I have a few gripes with the core gameplay, but as far as iPad turn-based war games go, Ravenmark is worth $5 at least. Even compared to other platforms I'd rate it 3/5 minimum.

Great Old Fashioned Strategy Game

I played Scourge of Estellion and now this and both are great old fashioned strategy games, I enjoy the combat mechanics and the story Witching Hour has created


I love turn based strategy games but why can't I control who the archers shoot? And when I choose "pursue" the archers run out of cover two spaces away when they could have shot from behind my shield wall. Same issue with the other ravenmark game. If that issue was fixed I would definitely buy the game.
