Witching Hour Studios, the Singapore based developers of the popular iOS game, Ravenmark: Scourge of Estellion, have announced the release date for the Android version of their 2nd game.
Ravenmark: Mercenaries is coming to Google Play on Dec 3rd, 2013.
The game is a turn based strategy, where you build an army of mercenaries and take on your friends, random opponents, or an AI, in asynchronous battles. Think over your strategy in the Command Phase and head to war in the Battle Phase. Sounds simple? Don’t expect it to be.
Official Description of the game:
Challenge other human players to asynchronous battles, or embark on mercenary contracts to sharpen your skills on your own and gain favour with each of the warring nations. As your mercenary company grows rich in silver and renown, be prepared to face off against tougher challengers in multiplayer matches.
Acquire the services of diverse Brigades of mercenaries, each with their own history and combat styles. Mix and match these Brigades together to form your own style of combat! As you gain experience in battle, experiment with Commander Traits to embellish your style of command.
Stalwart combat features like Standing Orders and Formations return to offer expanded tactical options for players, while new features such as Zone of Control and the Standard Bearer throw game-changing twists into battle! Observe the satisfying progression of your mercenary company as your Brigades harden with battle experience.
A WORLD SCARRED
In the events of Mercenaries, set six years after the events of the original RAVENMARK, the world of Eclisse has been scarred irrevocably by the vendetta of Estellion’s vengeful new ruler, the Scarlet Empress. Players may delve into the world’s rich lore and discover the evolved power struggle between the three warring nations: once-glorious Estellion, the fledgling Varishah, and silent but stern Esotre.

Here is the official trailer for the Android version of Ravenmark: Mercenaries:
The game will be free to play, so yes there will be In-App Purchases. And it will also contain some advertisements.
The only downside is that the game will require an internet connection to play. Let us hope that they make the SinglePlayer mode playable offline.
