Empire is a 2016 hardcore video game, and remake/spiritual successor of an umbrella fighting title called Radioactive. It features a group of travellers hailing from all over the gaming spectrum who are subject to fight each other in a virtual environment, unbeknown to them that this is all the work of one grand master of all things evil. It was released as one of the many expansive launch titles to the Pacifico sometime in 2016. It was rated "M" for Mature by ESRB and "18" by PEGI for Violence, Obscene Language, Fearful Scenes, Sexual References and Drug References.

Empire features a large group of characters from all different aspects of the video gaming genre, who have all been collectively selected to participate in a competition with the main goal of killing or be killed. One by one, they will fall unless they can determine the cause for this disaster in the history of mankind, and ultimately destroy it.



Empire plays similarly to Radioactive, but has a lot of graphical improvements and mechanical improvements to make the game play more smoothly and fluently. The game takes a lot of inspiration from open world roaming games like The Legend of Zelda and Tomb Raider to name a couple, where you play as your own character in an open world, however, specifically in Empire, where your one mission is to kill or be killed. 

You have a limit of health in the game, which can be depleted through many methods. If you don't keep eating food and drinking clean water, you can lose health and become more slow and sluggish as your travel the world. Less health makes your vision become more blurred and less clear, making it harder to move around the world. You can regain health through eating healthy food or drinking a clean drink, but if you have an open wound from combat, you will need to treat that first to stop your health from diminishing.

Empire Ender

Empire Enders are the finishing moves or final moves in the game which will kill your opponent. Every character has at least one Empire Ender which is exclusive to themselves only, which usually reflects the characters personality and play style in the game. Some Empire Enders are unlocked when specific requirements are met within the game, so not all characters will have them right off the bat.



CHECKMATE is the Story Mode of Empire. While details are still very scarce on the story of the game, it is assumed that the plot will take a similar turn to that of Radioactive. Due to the title, it may also have a stronger theme of power, and kings and queens, as the chessboard and respective pieces are referenced a lot in the title and logo. It is also heavily hinted at that the game's story will be longer to incorporate all of the characters in some way in a significant role. 

You can find a death table here, which simply shows all of the deaths in the game so far.

Season 1

The game's story is separated by seasons, all of which will have an undetermined number of episodes. The entirety of the first season was released alongside the game, while other seasons will be released when they're completed.

Game Modes

Alliance Mode


Alliance Mode is the first mode you encounter in the game. Similar to Faction War in Mortal Kombat X, you have to select an alignment which will give you greater access to items, moves, and other bonuses which help the characters that are also aligned in the same faction as you are. During battles and other fights in the game, you will earn a special type of experience points called Allegiance Points, which are the basis for unlocking the new content for your Alliance. There are several different Alliances that you can be a part of, all with different benefits.

Conquest Mode


Invasion Mode


Survival Mode


Bizarre Bazaar



Many different characters are set to be presented in Empire. Similar to other games that have larger rosters than the normal, like the LEGO video games, you can unlock different characters through the story mode of the game, when their character arc begins. There are also several other methods to unlocking characters, most of which will be explained in the respective section.

This section will most likely be bare until the entire cast of the game is revealed.

SS This will be expanded upon new characters being revealed for the game.


Empire has been very positively received, by critics and fans alike. The game was initially teased in early 2016, which led some fans to speculate a new title in the Radioactive series following Remastered. The final logo for the project was teased at the end of Illusion Works' E3 2016 presentation, and then following the show it was confirmed that Empire was the remake of the Radioactive series.

Due to being unreleased as of now, Empire has no critical scores or reviews, or wikia awards. However, many critics have explained their interest and "hype" in the game and are highly anticipating its release.


  • Empire was created on June 28, 2016.
  • Empire is slated to be the first of many remakes made by Illusion Works.
  • Empire is inspired by many different games and forms of media, especially Battle Royale, The Hunger Games, Radioactive and Until Dawn. There are also some mechanics and modes based off of other games like Fire Emblem or Hyrule Warriors.
  • The emblem for Empire is a scorpion, the same one as the one presented in the logo. However, the significance, if any, has not been explained.
  • Origin dates for Fantendo articles are determined from the day they were created, instead of released, as they are fictional in real-world sense.
  • Credit to Athena Hawkins (tbc) for the Unlock Requirements table.
