Bladestorm: The Hundred Years' War is a video game for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 platforms. It was published by Koei and developed by Omega Force.

The game is loosely based on The Hundred Years' War between the Kingdoms of England and France in the 14th and 15th century.

Just like the Kessen and Musou series' from Koei, certain liberties are taken from the original history. For example, unlike what happened in real life, it is possible to save Joan of Arc from her tragic fate.

Gameplay

Players assume the role of a rogue commander with a group of mercenary units who can align themselves with the French or English sides, depending on the situation. Units include infantry, cavalry, archers, elephants, cannoniers and castle siege units. The commander's reputation will affect things like the quality of troops available and the difficulty of the missions. Individual troops will also strengthen as they gain combat experience.[2]

The gameplay appears fairly similar to Kessen III published by Koei.

Koei has released a FAQ explaining the basics of gameplay.
