After raising an incredible two million dollars on Kickstarter, and a successful beta release, the console version of the game is launching on March 1, 2022, on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
To celebrate the console release date, a new trailer was premiered during Microsoft’s ID@Xbox showcase revealing the main villain and the companion cast that players can recruit on their journeys; details about the new characters, gameplay mechanics, and mythic transformations were also unveiled.
To fight against the demonic invasion, players will choose a mythic path, which grants them a unique skill set, followed by a distinct narrative arc – ultimately leading them to their mythic transformation.
As Commander, players can become a celestial angel, raging demon, powerful lich, cunning trickster, otherworldly aeon, a rebellious Azata, a wise gold dragon, an insatiable Swarm-That-Walks, or remain a mortal and walk the arduous path toward becoming a living legend.
Mythic transformations allow players to increase the rank of their chosen path, earning them new skills and abilities. Transformations also impact the world around them, including the capital city and largest fortress in the game: Drezen.
The trailer showcases crusade mode, along with mounted combat and tactical game mechanics. Crusade mode enables players to select their general, change the size of their army and explore the map. It also shows how many movement points are left, overall combat morale, army strength, and enemy strengths.
Animal companions will be useful for mounted combat, as they come with their own full-scale progression systems and levels of customization.
