Fresh off their exclusive reveal on IGN Live at Gamescom 2019 and exactly one year after it was first announced, Gato Studio is sharing an absolutely stunning look into epic time-travelling RPG, The Waylanders with an all-new cinematic trailer. They’re also excited to announce that joining narrative lead Emily Grace Buck, whose hard work has shaped this already stellar storyline, The Waylanders also sees the addition of legendary scriptwriter, Chris Avellone, alongside Emmy Award-winning musician, Inon Zur (Dragon Age: Origins, Fallout 3, Crysis) who will be along for the ride as the lead musician on the project.
Chris turn up everywhere
Chris Avellone brings with him an extensive resume and has been working on The Waylanders for the past 18 months. With past credits on games such as Fallout: New Vegas and Divinity: Original Sin 2, as well as upcoming credits on AAA projects like Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and Dying Light 2, Avellone adds to an already top-rated writing team which includes narrative lead Emily Grace Buck (Telltale’s The Walking Dead), consultant Mike Laidlaw (Dragon Age: Origins, Jade Empire), and game director Sergio Prieto. Together, this exemplary team is crafting a sweeping and fantastic RPG story.
Its innovative gameplay boasts unique formations for deep, tactical combat, in combination with 6 basic and 30 advanced classes, as well as 5 playable races (based on Celtic mythology) with full character customization and different origins for your character.
Companions are an integral part of any RPG experience, and The Waylanders offers a variety of travelling companions that can join you on your journey. The player will be able to talk to their companions in-depth, discover their past, play loyalty missions, and even experience romances with them.
The Waylanders will be coming to PC in 2020.
