Perfect World's (NASDAQ:PWRD) fortunes might just be improved with a freshly announced new title. The company has revealed that its latest game, Fortuna, will be available starting on July 18. Set in Europe during the Age of Discovery, the browser-based title is a strategy/war game in which players vie to develop modest settlements into global empires. Fortuna features the usual cutthroat conventions of the strategy and combat genres, including the ability to throw armies into battle, and to form opportunistic alliances with other players.
The game also features appearances from well-known families and individuals in and around the time period, including the Medici, England's Tudor dynasty, and Joan of Arc.
Items can be bought and sold using Perfect World's ZEN currency.
