The highly anticipated tactical turn-based RPG, Crimson Tactics: The Rise of The White Banner, developed by indie dev Black March Studios is ready to release on PC via Steam Early Access on July 25, 2023. Set in the immersive medieval high fantasy world of Wendalle, this game offers players an action-packed political narrative filled with desire, destiny, and demise.
The kingdom of Wendalle teeters on the brink of disaster, riddled with ideological divides and awash in mistrust. A raging civil war spurred by a power-driven siege risks disrupting the kingdom’s stability as dukedoms fiercely vie for the throne. Amidst this turbulence, players will navigate the sinister schemes of Duke Arsenio Duran of Swozalta, an antagonist with a relentless ambition for power, and aid a dwindling rebellion fighting against his oppressive reign.
Crimson Tactics: The Rise of The White Banner puts players at the heart of this power struggle, pushing them to make critical decisions. Will they value the lives of their comrades or exploit them? Would they help those in need, or succumb to their own ideals? The choices made will shape not only the course of Swozalta but the entire kingdom of Wendalle.
Taking inspiration from iconic games like Final Fantasy Tactics and Tactics Ogre, Crimson Tactics introduces innovative twists and enhancements to the genre. Key features include:
- A unique mounting system featuring horses and dragons
- Challenging tactical gameplay with aggressive and adaptive enemies
- A dynamic difficulty option that adjusts according to player performance
- Tactical grid-based maps promoting a broad range of playstyles
Additionally, the game incorporates a robust Class System, offering playstyles from melee close-range fighters to long-range archers and mages. The Class of characters can be regularly changed, retaining Abilities even after the change. An expansive Equipment system also allows players to mix and match different Weapons and Gear for a customized experience.
Crimson Tactics: The Rise of The White Banner promises a thrilling gaming experience filled with strategic battles, immersive narrative, and unforgettable characters. Watch out for its release this July!
