And as a result you can now explore the open world of Aldor. A kingdom almost in ruin. Since danger lurks around every corner. Where you face ravaging bands of orcs and fanatical cults. And even the undead. But, a world in flames offers up ambitious adventurers. And certainly, an ample opportunity to acquire coin. With a multitude of contracts and quests to fulfil in Stoneshard. Along with items to trade, and bounties to collect. Check out the trailer below. Where the narrator says “mercenry” instead of “mercenary”. UGH!

Taking nods from classic turn-based RPGs of the past. Stoneshard adds challenging twists to the mix. While including a simple, yet unique, health system. Where players must mend not only their physical wounds. But also tend to their mental state. Wounds and broken bones can be mended with a plethora of potions and salves. But the mental fortitude, or weakness. This can result in either rushes of adrenaline to aid in battle. Above all, crippling panic attacks at the least opportune times.

But while the world of Aldor is fraught with dangers. Adventuring heroes have at their disposal complete freedom. So you can evolve and grow your characters in Stoneshard. With over more than 200 unique skills and 400 items. All of without class or level restrictions. Build a damage dealing tank or magic wielding. Or anything in between fright from the start. So you can make every single playthrough completely unique. For the truly brave, the game’s Ironman mode. This adds permadeath and the constant risk of total defeat.
