About Wartales

Set against the backdrop of the Edoran Empire, players will lead a band of skilled mercenaries, navigating through treacherous terrains, from rolling hills to dense forests. The game allows players to accept challenging bounties in bustling taverns and then dive deep into strategic turn-based battles with a chosen squad of sellswords. The objective is clear: master the art of tactical assaults, secure victory, and proceed to expansive campaigns.

The world of Wartales is vast and challenging. Nearly a century after the devastating Great Plague, players find themselves in a land of turmoil, where recruiting a formidable team is essential for survival. From navigating ancient ruins and treacherous mountain paths to facing off against beasts, bandits, and more, every decision counts.
