SpellMaster: The Saga now available for PC
Publisher Valkyrie Initiative and developer Spellbook Creations have today released SpellMaster: The Saga for PC (Steam).
The first-person open-world RPG was originally announced to be released in Early Access in 2021 - published by 1C Entertainment. However, after a year of silence, the game now lands on Steam with a different publisher, not as an Early Access title. The developer states 'I decided to go full access because I thought the game looked more finished than it needed for early access.'
SpellMaster is an open-world RPG where you play as a wizard opening your own magic academy, heavily inspired by the Gothic series.
An updated description for the game can be found below alongside new screenshots, via Valkyrie Initiative.
