The Waylanders is an RPG that will provide players an engaging narrative featuring impactful character development, unique companion romance options, and a deeply technical combat system.

A fantasy RPG inspired by beloved classics such as Dragon Age: Origins, Neverwinter Nights 2, and even a smidge of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (time travelling!), The Waylanders is a party-based experience set in the Celtic and Medieval eras featuring innovative and technical combat to make it stand out all on its own.

Real-time combat with a tactical pause option, The Waylanders can be played from the classic isometric, top-down view but can also be shifted into third person perspective. Featuring unique character creation and a massive 36 character classes based on six basic classes and 30 more advanced ones means every play style imaginable can be accommodated. Its most innovative offering, is the introduction of formations whereby characters will combine into offensive formations allowing for deep combat tactics and enabling players to play the game their own way.

In The Waylanders, you lead a party of 5 characters, utilizing over 800 different skills, to overcome challenges and defeat your enemies.

In advance of a major localization update coming next week, The Waylanders team has released a new trailer showing off the new location Compostella, a city founded on the religion of the era. Compostella is a thriving city run by the church where merchants, farmers, and craftspeople all gather under the safety of the cross. But this city is no haven to those connected to the old ways or with magic in their blood. As well as showing an overview of the location, the video also hints at an antagonist of the second act of their mythological RPG. 

Next week, a localization update will be added to The Waylanders giving fans the chance to play in Spanish, Latin American Spanish, French, German, Simplified Chinese, Russian, and Galician. This update is planned for January 25th and will release alongside a final roadmap leading to launch.  

“We know players are eager to find out what is going to happen next and we can’t wait to see people explore medieval Galicia.” said The Waylanders Creative Director, Sergio Prieto. “I hope this little taste of what’s to come keeps all our fans excited. Early Access has been an important part of developing gameplay accompanying this story which is so close to our hearts.” 

The coming Localization Update is the third of three planned winter updates for The Waylanders. Previous updates in the series have added major gameplay changes based on community feedback, origin videos for character backgrounds, and photo mode features.   

Key Features:

  • Real time combat with tactical pause, character creation and 36 classes (6 basic and 30 advanced)
  • Played from top-down isometric perspective that can be shifted to third person perspective
  • Inspired by RPG classics Dragon Age and Neverwinter Nights 2
  • 12 different combat formations (2 per class) where players fuse characters to provide varied and technical combat options

Currently available through Steam Early Access and the GOG Games In Development, The Waylanders is coming to PC in Spring 2021.
