If dark fantasy strategy RPG games are your bag (and needles – lots of needles) then Disciples: Liberation is one to keep a tab on.
Kalypso Media and Frima Studio are bringing a mature, dark fantasy strategy RPG called Disciples: Liberation to PS5 and PS4 later this year, as well as Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC – and it’s not for the faint-hearted.
The game is a brand new entry in the existing franchise but it’s also a new beginning as it breaks away from what came before to serve up something different.
You’ll explore a dark fantasy world filled with fantastical beasts to battle against in what the developer says is “intricate” turn-based combat. And, just like any RPG worth its salt, there will be hundreds of unique quests to go on, factions to align with and against, and, of course, that sweet, sweet loot that can be traded to upgrade your home base.
According to the developer, the game’s story will change depending on the choices you make throughout the game, with political alignments and other actions having consequences that ripple through the game’s narrative.
The trailer is not for those with an aversion to needles, so fair warning before you start watching the dramatic reveal trailer. But really, shouldn’t we all be getting used to the idea of needles right now?
