Airship Syndicate has an interesting slate of games under its belt, and they’re all pretty good. Battle Chasers: Nightwar, Darksiders Genesis, and Ruined King: A League of Legends Story Everyone was warmly welcomed. Now, the studio is back with an original IP, this time delving into the world of free-to-play. Wayfinder is its name, and it’s an online action RPG.
The setup is fairly specific material: the world of Evanor has been ravaged by The Gloom, but the Wayfinders have found a way to weaponize the material. You and your friends can play in co-op to fight back in dungeon-crawler style missions. Each Wayfinder has its own story, play style, and exploration abilities.
Most interestingly, while using your Gloom Dagger, you can customize your experience by applying mutators of your choice. These allow you to have some control over what you encounter, including which enemies are found, which items drop, and so on. However, depression will further modify things for you to fight, creating “endless” possibilities.
Interestingly, the game is being published by Warframe studio Digital Extremes, which will likely bring its free-to-play expertise to the project. Wayfinder will initially launch in Early Access on PS5 and PS4 in early 2023, with a proper release for the fall.
