Crimson Tactics

Step into a realm of power struggles, wits, and strategic warfare with Crimson Tactics: The Rise of The White Banner. Now available on PC via Steam in Early Access, this masterful turn-based tactical RPG, nestled in a medieval high fantasy world, offers players a riveting journey through the tumultuous political landscape of Wendalle. The survival of a kingdom hangs in the balance, swayed by characters whose lives are interwoven with desire, destiny, and inevitable demise.

Crimson Tactics The Rise of the White Banner

The kingdom of Wendalle teeters on the brink of catastrophe, fractured by competing ideals and smothered with distrust. A devastating siege escalates into civil war, the resulting turmoil reverberating through the realm, threatening its very existence as dukedoms scramble for the coveted throne.

Among the contenders, the formidable dukedom of Swozalta labors under Duke Arsenio Duran, a man as cruel as he is cunning. He rises relentlessly towards power and prestige, leaving destruction in his path. But a glimmer of resistance persists – a defiant band of rebels intent on toppling him. However, with the Duke’s formidable military closing in, their flame of rebellion flickers precariously.

Amid this backdrop of chaos, the player steps in, poised to etch a path through the unfolding narrative. They face a quandary of choices. Will they guard the lives of their comrades or manipulate them for their strategy? Will they extend a hand to the needy or hold firm to their beliefs? The decisions made by the player will sculpt the destiny of Swozalta, influencing the very fate of Wendalle.
