Battle in London – level 2

24-05-2016 15:00

In the shadow of Tower Bridge in London last Wednesday, 125 men did battle in the name of the Red King.

The battle was to promote Clash of Kings – a real-time strategy game for iOS and Android devices. In it, players battle to build and protect their empire.

The battle surprised commuters and tourists. Many of the men in the battle are professional battle re-enactors.

Difficult words: promote (to advertise, to make popular), clash (a fight, a battle), commuter (a person who commutes or travels every day to work).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
