Warlander is an action-packed third-person online multiplayer game with a unique style that combines a medieval-inspired environment, fantastic items and abilities… and… EVEN POWERFUL ROBOTS!
Featuring intense competition and epic castle siege warfare for up to 100 players, you must use the almighty powers of godlike warriors, clerics, and mages, as well as siege weapons and cataclysmic spells to control the battlefield.
To be victorious, you must work together as a team, defend your stronghold and tactically break into the enemy’s stronghold to destroy its core!
- Innovative genre hybrid – In its 2 Army Battle & 5 Army Battle game modes, Warlander combines the tactical teamfights of a modern MOBA, the mind-blowing gameplay of a battle royale, a smooth blend of 3rd-person hack-and-slash and long-range combat, and a touch of 4X-inspired strategy Diplomacy – all in large-scale battles with up to 100 players.
- Complex gameplay – Features fast-paced action combat and smart decision making where you must play the role of your squad, either defending your castle and core with anti-siege weapons – roaming the battlefield to intercept the enemy, capturing towers and firing powerful catapults – or by infiltrating the enemy stronghold with siege weapons and epic disaster spells. Defeating enemies, building gadgets, and completing objectives earns you Valor Points that can be used to bring powerful versions of your characters into battle and help turn the tide of battle!
- Action Oriented Tactics – Maneuver and tactically control the battlefield by following your commander’s orders, controlling spawn towers and using the available siege engines to clear the enemy fortress’ fortification layers. Gates, walls and bridges can be destroyed to create chokepoints or new routes into the enemy stronghold, and alliances can be made or broken to change the dynamic of combat.
- Power to play your way – Build an eclectic roster of bespoke class-based characters, each with their own set of rarity-based and customizable gear, skills and talents, as well as emotes and dance moves. The choice is yours – build decks that are balanced, fill specific roles, or offer multiple ways to play your favorite class – then take them into battle and defeat your enemies!
