The Waylanders will pit you against godlike foes, hits Early Access next week

What happens when you take some of the people that brought Mass Effect, Dragon Age and Pillars of Eternity, and they start making a party-based RPG? You sit up and pay attention, that’s what.

The Waylanders will hit Steam Early Access on June 16, and so far the game looks great. Get ready for a blend of Medieval and Celtic eras, gods, monstrous beings and time travel.

The Early Access build will have the game’s first act, which is about a quarter of the game. Over time more combat options, balance updates and the rest of the story will get added, until Early Access ends late in 2020 or early in 2021.

I can’t wait to explore such a colourful world, to gawk at massive statues and godlike entities, all while planning my attacks and doing quests or spending time with whichever character I want to romance. Don’t deny it, you know the romance options are one of the biggest draws of these games.

If it has the letters RPG in it, I am there. Still battling with balancing trying to play every single game that grabs my interest, getting 100% in a JRPG, and devoting time to my second home in Azeroth.
