Open-world tactical RPG Wartales launches for Steam on April 12

Shiro Unlimited has announced that Wartales will exit Early Access on launch for Steam on April 12.

The open-world tactical RPG originally released in Early Access on December 1, 2021, and the game has since sold 400,000 units.

A launch date trailer and description can be found below, via Shiro Unlimited. The official website is here.

Wartales, the medieval open-world tactical RPG from developer and publisher Shiro Unlimited that has sold more than 400,000 copies, invades the new Kingdom of Alazar region alongside launching into 1.0 on Wednesday, April 12, 2023, as revealed at Future Games Show spring 2023.

Enter a land ripe with brutality, deceit…and opportunity. Untold wealth and dangers abound in the full version of Wartales, now exiting Steam Early Access with a cart full of new and updated community-inspired treasures. Alongside the 1.0 launch, traverse a brand new region bubbling with secrets unlike any the party has encountered.

Painted with snow-covered fields and dark intentions in the high mountains of Drombach, the beautiful but treacherous realm of Alazar awaits adventurers. Join native forces dispatched by the Church of Edoran to save the land from the divine Wrath of the Eye. Track down what — or who — has unleashed this destructive force with a reworked faction of Alazarian Soldiers and the Inquisition, proudly protected in Purifiers’ Guild armor.

Overcome new fauna and predators specific to the frigid front with superior turned-based tactics. The fall of the Edoran Empire led to a life of greed for many: form a loyal band of sellswords, each with a specific skill set, to accept contracts, collect bounties, and thrive in the dangerous lands ahead. Earn a deadly reputation, then make camp to train fellow comrades up to par and prepare for the next journey.

Wartales’ full 1.0 version also features:

  • Polished graphics
  • New arenas, rouste fields and battlemaps
  • New ruins, forsaken villages and secrets
  • More character customisation options
  • Additional balancing, skills, and specializations

“Our community's contribution in building Wartales’ identity has been crucial, and we’d like to extend the biggest thank you to them for it,” said Quentin Lapeyre, Game Director, Shiro Games. “As we come to the end of this Early Access, we are convinced that the heart of the game’s success this far lies in the shared passion that drives our team and our amazing community. Of course, the end of Early Access is just the beginning of a new adventure in which we still have many tales to tell, secrets to uncover, and throats to slit. So, friends, sharpen your blades and polish your shields because the high mountains of Alazar are coming in April and its inhabitants are rather... inhospitable.”

Wartales will be available Wednesday, April 12, 2023, on Windows PC via Steam with English, Chinese, French, German, Spanish, Russian, Polish, and Portuguese language support.

New recruits will be able to begin the adventure out of Early Access on Steam for $34.99 USD.
