Despite the bad news, the Gato Salvaje Studio team does not want to leave a bad taste in the mouths of players who are eagerly awaiting the release of The Waylanders.
Gato Salvaje Studio, a Spanish studio, has formally announced the postponement of their major project, The Waylanders. The game, which was supposed to be released in November, has been postponed for three months, to February 2022, in order to improve the title’s launch optimization.
For those who are unfamiliar with this fantastic project, The Waylanders is a party-based RPG with real-time combat and a tactical pause option. It is an ambitious adventure influenced by classics such as Dragon Age: Origins, Neverwinter Nights 2, and The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.
The Waylanders, set in the Celtic and Medieval eras, contains unique warfare and intricate tactics, as well as the introduction of formations in which players may merge their characters to construct coordinated and strong offensives.
It’s not all bad news
Despite the disappointing news of the delay, Gato Salvaje Studio has announced that The Waylanders will receive Early Access updates that will improve several areas of the game currently available, such as The Cave of Eternity and the Fomorian World in The Corrupted Cove. Hopefully, the additions will help players cope with the delay. The upgrades will also include the final text localization for various Celtic-era missions, as well as bug fixes noted by the community.
In addition, advanced classes are coming to The Waylanders at launch. Before beginning their quest, players construct their character using one of six fundamental classes: Warrior, Guardian, Rogue, Ranger, Sorcerer, and Healer.
