It's early medieval RTS with heavy focus on tactics maneuvering with your squads.

You may apply to beta-test here:

I've already tried beta-multiplayer and I'm very positively impressed so far.
I haven't learned many things yet since there is only PvP mode but the game has many tactical features like morale, flanking, formations, LOS, friendly fire, day/nigth cycles with ambushes and traps and the most important... you can't move your squad which is engaged in melee combat but only use it's abilities. If you want to disengage from the combat you have to give retreat order and your squad will flee until reaches your nearest camp. Just like in Dark Omen! (except there are no camps there :))

All mechanics felt meaningful and important during my few games. For instance, I was able to hold with my spearmen in spearwall formation 4 enemy squads and was winning until 5th enemy squad charged my spearmen from the rear.

There are still building, recruiting and resource gathering mechanics but they are very simplified and automated, so you can focus on combat much more then in other RTS games.
