game release date for PC:
Glorious Companions is a dark fantasy open-world RPG game in which we take on the role of Mercenary Leader, crossing the Navaroth continent and fighting turn-based battles against opponents we meet. The game was created by the Ancient Forge studio, whose original goal was to create a new RPG system, but it grew so large that they decided to make a computer game out of it.
The action of the game takes place in the unfriendly world of Navaroth, full of dangerous creatures, bloodthirsty bandits and ancient secrets. We take on the role of a beginner mercenary commander, whose team at the start consists of himself and a faithful servant. In order to create a powerful and lucrative group, we need to gain fame and, above all, the money that will ensure the loyalty of the hired thugs. And this will be useful to us, because the mysterious Ancient Guardians, who have been singing for many years, are awakening, being a real threat to the world and its people, whose fate is in our hands.
The world of Glorious Companions is procedurally generated at the beginning of each game, making each adventure and exploration unique. This uniqueness is also influenced by the fact that this is a complex RPG with an open world, in which our decisions affect the development of the plot. An example of this are the numerous races in the game, on whose side we can stand, the ability to join a selected faction and advance in its ranks, as well as to create their own.
In the game we play the role of the Mercenary Leader, who will gradually expand the ranks of the group with new members. These come from different backgrounds, have their own history and unique statistics. Our task is to know the predisposition of a given individual and to develop it and equip it with such equipment that it is as effective as possible on the battlefield. Each one of them also has his or her own needs, which we as a leader must satisfy in order to maintain good morale. They are influenced by, among other things, food and drink, taking care of the level of health after the skirmish and investing in the development of subordinates.
However, our activities will not only focus on mercenary management, but also on dealing with economic and political conflicts.
An important element of the game is the combat taking place in the turn-based system. It is demanding and unforgiving, because every attack has a chance to knock down the opponent. Moreover, the battlefield situation itself can change dramatically, even if the loss seemed inevitable, because the elimination of the captain ensures an automatic victory. This applies both to us and to the opponent.
Glorious Companions is a three-dimensional game set in a style matching the fantasy world, where our actions are observed from an isometric view.
