'Wayfinder' Temporarily Delisted While Rights Revert Back To Developer Airship Syndicate

by Rainier on April 8, 2024 @ 8:04 p.m. PDT

Wayfinder is a new character-based, online action/RPG that delivers endless action adventure as players work to control the chaos and reconnect a fractured world.

Wayfinder development is led by creative director Joe ‘Mad’ Madureira (Battle Chasers, Darksiders, Ruined King: A League of Legends Story).

The world of Evenor is being consumed by the foul force of the Gloom. As Wayfinders, lights amidst the darkness in a world consumed by Gloom, players must control the chaos and reconnect a fractured world as they choose a unique path through an online world of endless action and adventure. To cease the Gloom’s devastating decay of Evenor, players will choose from a variety of Wayfinders (characters) to control, each with their own unique story, play styles, and abilities, harnessing their power together to defend Evenor from forces that seek to destroy it.

Uniting with fellow Wayfinders, players will use their Gloom Dagger to adventure into Lost Zones - dungeon-like areas touched and consumed by the Gloom – resulting in shifting change and chaos. Wayfinders can control the chaos with their Gloom Dagger, an ancient artifact of obscure origin, strategically implementing mutators that can dictate enemies encountered, items and resources dropped, and more. Wayfinders attempting to control this chaos will find the Gloom pushing back - implementing its own augmentations and modifiers to enemy damage, environmental hazards, and more where no two play sessions are the same.

After Warframe creator Digital Extremes shut down its publishing division, developer Airship Syndicate is now in the process of taking back Wayfinder's rights, and therefor is temporarily delisting the game on Steam.

Wayfinders,


We have reached an agreement with Digital Extremes to begin the transfer of Wayfinder to Airship in earnest. Until this moment, Digital Extremes has remained the publisher of record on Steam and PlayStation. We now begin the process of transferring those responsibilities to Airship.

We know Wayfinder had a rocky launch, but we still believe in the game and the world we created.

When we founded Airship it was to create great games in compelling worlds, with memorable characters and adventures. With those core principles in mind, we've spent the last several months working behind the scenes, challenging some of the core ideas in Wayfinder and creating an experience that remains consistent with our standards and beliefs. We did this while keeping in mind that we want to respect our founders and excite new players - all while staying feasible as a business model for us as a new independent publisher. We plan to share these changes soon, but we aren’t quite ready.

Due to these changes, we’ve turned off new sales of the game for the time being. Those who have purchased Wayfinder can still access and play as normal with no interruptions.

Airship is committed to keeping Wayfinder active and vibrant. There will be major changes, and major improvements, but we have no plans for it to disappear like so many online-only games we’ve all played and loved. We think Wayfinder can be something special, and be around to play forever.

Thank you so much for your support. Stay tuned to our social channels for more information in the next 4-6 weeks.

  • BECOME A WAYFINDER: Born of the Gloom, Wayfinders wield arcane magic, mystical tech, or cunning weapons, to restore the balance of a broken world. Customize the way you fight by choosing your weapons and gear and augmenting your powers with the Echoes of your fallen foes.
