This past October, the hardest working team in iOS gaming Foursaken Media announced Block Fortress War, a spinoff of sorts to their excellent crafting-style tower defense game Block Fortress [$1.99]. In Block Fortress War, you'll choose one of four different races and create an army, overtaking key points on the map with the eventual goal of destroying your opponent's base. Unlike the original Block Fortress, there won't be any first-person action in this game, rather you'll battle from an overhead view similar to a MOBA or RTS. Block Fortress War seems to be coming along nicely, and recently Foursaken posted the first in-game screens which you can see below.

The last that Foursaken said on the matter of a release date, they were shooting for sometime in January. That was back in mid-December, so it'll likely still be heading to the App Store this month or at the very least sometime very soon in February. If anything changes with that we'll let you know, but you can find out more information posted from Foursaken as well as community reaction to Block Fortress War in the game's forum thread.

    Looks really cool, and Block Fortress was an awesome game.

    These brothers are amazing! Pumping out unique quality games on the regular so fast so good they make it look easy. I cannot wait for this and REALLY am CRAZY NUTS excited for BH 2!

    An appealing idea. I wasn't a huge fan of the first person shooter aspect of the last game, but I loved the building and tower defence gameplay. Could be a pretty fun change to the formula.

      FM was supposed to add a new game mode that allowed for the tower defense without the FPS element but it seems not to have come to fruition.

    They always do games well it's one of the very few developers I know I can buy a game from and I'll like it.

    • loophole

      Yeah and they also don't forget about there old games. Heroes and castles is still getting updated

    Block Fortess is my favorite iOS game. I still play it at least once a week. That being said I'm just not "feeling" this one. I was really hoping for BF + More instead of a BF MOBA. I'll still buy it day one to support FM but I guess I'm really wanting BF2 more than this.

    Yay for no first person! Really love defense games. I just don't really like fps. No offense to all FPS players! :P
