Ancient Egypt is known for having a polytheistic society with many different gods and goddesses being in control of different aspects of life and death. In Ankh, players will take on the role of these gods as they fight it out to see who will be the one left when Egypt goes monotheistic. In this preview, we get a look at the different gods from the core box.
From the post:
One of the characteristics in Ankh: Gods of Egypt that sets it apart from its predecessors in the legendary saga – Blood Rage and Rising Sun – is the high level of asymmetry in the game. The presence, or absence of, a god in a particular game highly changes the texture of the experience and the strategy that needs to be applied. This happens because players represent the gods themselves and their powers. Let’s take a deeper look into which gods are included in the core box and how their powers are represented in the game.
