Like other online strategy war game, 5-Empires also has a very detailed layout. The developers have incorporated a complete story into the game, making sure that no loopholes are left behind.
The story revolves around a virtual realm, at the birth of which, power was divided equally amongst five regions. Each of the five empires was governed by one of the five almighty spirits, also known as ‘influences’. It is imperative for the five influences to co-exist but a constant struggle for power amongst them continues.
The Five Influences:
Terra: The only female out of the five. Although she is kind in nature and influences growth and natural order, her hard headedness and strength often leads her to dominate by brute force.
Ignis: The young and furious one, born out of fire. His behavior is extremely unpredictable except for one thing: he is furious all the time. Ignis influences freedom and emotion.
Umbra: Born out of darkness, Umbra is a manifestation of pessimism and evil. Self-centered and egocentric, Umbra’s only concern is his own well being and fortune. Influencing darkness and death, he enjoys seeing enemies in pain.
Aqua: Aqua is rather the intellectual. Believing knowledge is the greatest power, he relies on logic. But with intelligence comes a price. To get closer to his ambitions, Aqua adapts deception and influences manipulation and illusion.
Lucis: Being the oldest of the five influences, Lucis is overly protective and proud. Honor, Integrity, Order and Justice are what drives his motivation. Influencing order and protection, there is no stopping him in putting an end to the wicked.
