The Waylanders Reveal a Stunning Cinematic Trailer at Gamescom 2019

A new trailer and some incredible new additions to the team highlight a big Gamescom presence for The Waylanders

Cologne, Germany - August 23, 2019 -- Fresh off their exclusive reveal on IGN Live at Gamescom 2019 and exactly one year after it was first announced, Gato Studio is sharing an absolutely stunning look into epic time-traveling RPG, The Waylanders with an all-new cinematic trailer. They're also excited to announce that joining narrative lead Emily Grace Buck, whose hard work has shaped this already stellar storyline, The Waylanders also sees the addition of legendary scriptwriter, Chris Avellone, alongside Emmy Award-winning musician, Inon Zur (Dragon Age: Origins, Fallout 3, Crysis) who will be along for the ride as the lead musician on the project.

Chris Avellone brings with him an extensive resume and has been working on The Waylanders for the past 18 months. With past credits on games such as Fallout: New Vegas and Divinity: Original Sin 2, as well as upcoming credits on AAA projects like Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and Dying Light 2, Avellone adds to an already top-rated writing team which includes narrative lead Emily Grace Buck (Telltale's The Walking Dead), consultant Mike Laidlaw (Dragon Age: Origins, Jade Empire), and game director Sergio Prieto. Together, this exemplary team is crafting a sweeping and fantastic RPG story.

Inon Zur, the lead musician for The Waylanders project, is also no stranger to the world of videogames. Known for his internationally acclaimed work on the Fallout saga and its unforgettable main theme, Zur has seen his name in the credits of many of gaming's biggest heavy-hitters including Dragon Age: Origins, Soulcalibur V, Dragon's Dogma, and more. He is an Emmy award-winner and three-time BAFTA nominee.

An exciting fantasy RPG inspired by classics such as Dragon Age: Origins and Baldur's Gate, The Waylanders showcases a unique, party-based experience that time travels between two distinct eras -- Celtic and Medieval -- covering a rich history that has been largely overlooked in video game lore up to this point. Choices made in one time period can have dire consequences in the other, meaning players will feel the impact of their decisions in surprising and shocking ways.

Its innovative gameplay boasts unique formations for deep, tactical combat, in combination with 6 basic and 30 advanced classes, as well as 5 playable races (based on Celtic mythology) with full character customization and different origins for your character.

Companions are an integral part of any RPG experience, and The Waylanders offers a variety of traveling companions that can join you on your journey. The player will be able to talk to their companions in-depth, discover their past, play loyalty missions, and even experience romances with them.

The Waylanders will be coming to PC in 2020.

Decent teaser trailer but will the game actually get released?

Unsurprisingly they still haven't released the final part of their previously Kickstarted adventure game AR-K, nor have there been any more updates since last year. The Steam page previously said Spring 2019 now just says "coming soon" again. Funny, during the Waylanders Kickstarter they swore it would be done by early 2019.

I get an Earthsea vibe from that trailer. The graphics look cartoonish though.
