Isometric action RPG Farsiders available now on PC
Gambit Ghost Studio released Farsiders, a new isometric hack-and-slash action RPG, on PC via Steam. They state that they have launched it in a beta state because its final story chapter, Act 6, is not in the game yet and will be added in the future as a free update. Acts 1-5 are fully complete and in the game.
Farsiders used to be a project entirely self-funded by Gambit Ghost Studio until it launched a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign back in April to secure the necessary funds to finish development. It reached its initial goal in less than 24 hours.
Players take on the role of Spectralon's youngest member, Cassandra (or Cassie). On her mission to take down a group of terrorists known as the Soul Syndicate, she was swept into a portal conjured by the Soul Syndicate's leader. Now, she wanders the mythical realm into unknown lands as she searches for a way to stop the Soul Syndicate once more.
Farsiders has players combine spell abilities with skills from Cassie's talent tree to make custom builds with different synergies. Certain talents can enhance the properties and behaviors of spells. Talent trees are divided into elemental affinies that all have unique identities, such as the Dark elemental tree branches specializing in debuff duration and spell cooldown; meanwhile, the Ice elemental tree branches can have enemies freeze on perfect parries and slow movement speed on nearby foes.
Seveal attributes that players wil lhave to consider for Cassie are Vitality, Cooldown Reduction, Weapon Damage, Spell Damage, Attack Speed, and Movement Speed.
A combat guide trailer for Farsiders was released a month ago and more details with screenshots are available down below.
