'Gordian Quest' Gets Steam Early Access Date

by Rainier on Feb. 28, 2020 @ 1:54 a.m. PST

With a unique blend of tactical combat, strategic gameplay, and boisterous animated heroes, Gordian Quests takes players on a journey to defeat an ultimate evil plaguing the land.

In Gordian Quest players will be able to assemble the team of heroes of their choice and lead them through challenging missions while also strategically building their decks and assigning their heroes new attributes. Each of the heroes in Gordian Quest brings unique class skills and playstyles to their party. Players will be able to train their heroes and upgrade their abilities as well as equip them with weaponry and armor in order to take on the challenging missions that lie ahead. Each map and dungeon in Gordian Quest is procedurally generated, making each encounter different from the last. In order to survive players will need to react quickly and think strategically when forming their team.

In addition to bringing unique skills to the fray, heroes in Gordian Quest are able to form bonds. As players progress through their quest to save the land they’ll be able to discover and forge bonds of friendship, rivalry, mentorship or even love between their heroes, giving players access to powerful combo abilities. 

Featuring a unique blend of tactical turn-based combat and card battling, Gordian Quest will challenge players to position their heroes smartly while also strategically using the cards in their arsenal to keep the tide of battle in their favor. Each battlefield in Gordian Quest is divided into two sections, player side and enemy side. While players are on their side of the battlefield they’ll have freedom of movement in order to predict oncoming assaults from enemies and avoid them while also positioning their heroes to get the most impact when using their cards.

Players will be able to begin their Gordian Quest when it comes to Steam Early Access on March 27, 2020.

A list of Early Access features include:

  • Form your party - choose from six different heroes each with their own unique class, skills, and playstyle.
  • Train and equip your heroes - upgrade and train your heroes and choose which weaponry and enchantments to give them in order to face the battles ahead.
  • Collect legendary items - gather relics throughout your journey which may turn the tide of battle in your favor or stack the odds against you.
  • Shape the course of your adventure - embark on side quests and events, and shape the outcome with your decisions.
  • Enjoy endless replayability - procedurally generated maps and dungeons make each playthrough and encounter different from the last.
  • Choose your difficulty - take on hardcore mode for a teeth-gritting permadeath experience or play more casually where death is only a setback.
  • Customize your play - activate shrines that permanently change random areas of the map, multiplying the danger but also the rewards - adding another layer of strategic planning and risk assessment as you traverse the world.

Additional features and content planned for the full version:

  • PVP - engage in skirmish fights with other players using your preferred mix of heroes and skills.
