Wartile tabletop-inspired RTS now available on Early Access

wartile tabletop inspired RTS available now on early access linux gaming news

Playwood Project’s medieval #tabletop-inspired #realtimestrategy #game Wartile. Now available on Steam Early Access. While only available for Windows PC for now, the graphics in the game are incredible. So the real gaming news, Playwood have put some serious time into creating the right aesthetics for the gameplay in Unreal Engine 4. Featuring stunning, highly detailed digital dioramas and innovative, for true tactical gaming.
Since Wartile takes players on a journey through intricately crafted environments. Hence leading a hoard of Viking warriors through a series of beautifully detailed battle boards. While each has their own story and lore.

“We’re thrilled to finally launch on Steam Early Access. We are confident that Wartile’s impressive digital dioramas and unique gameplay will bring something new and visually jarring to the RTS genre,” said Michael Rud Jakobsen, Founder and Creative Director of Playwood Project. “The combined effort from all the team, not to mention the initial praise and reaction from press and community news. Have all kept us going for many months and we are keen to see what players think of our efforts thus far!”

Gameplay

Wartile is a singleplayer and multiplayer real time tabletop gaming experience for Windows PC with a strong turn based flavor. The game replicates the feeling of playing a tabletop game but with a tactical edge and more immediate combat. Each Battle Board is an intricately realised digital diorama. Complete with tiles that allow players to strategize their tactical moves and attack in real time. Units are fully customizable with armor, weapons and new stat tokens. So players can pick up these items throughout the game by completing special challenges.
Stat tokens provide points that players can add to their characters’ stats which unlock when players level up. Available in each of the various Battle Boards in the game. Players can add a tactical slant to their close quarter and ranged combat moves by utilising cards. Hence Ability cards and Godly cards apply to their figurines, gaining more experience and by completing special Battle Board objectives. Godly cards and abilities can be put together by the player before engaging in battle or during combat. These cards can easily change the course of the fight should the odds stack against their flavour.

The most significant game news, Playwood Project plans to eventually include a wide range of detailed environments. Including Norwegian mountains, murky swamps, rocky English coastlines, dark dungeons and sweeping grasslands. Wartile also allows players to unlock and collect an array of different characters. All with different combat abilities to provide a choice of tactical gaming options before they embark on each quest.

The Linux release:

According to the games developer Playwood Project, their ultimate goal is to release a Linux and Mac version. It won’t be for the Early Access stage of the product because they don’t know what effect that will have on the current pipeline. But it’s very much on their agenda.

Wartile’s beautifully realised digital dioramas and innovative game mechanics aim to bring a wholly unique and refreshing perspective to the RTS genre. Players will be challenged to utilise their Viking figurines carefully in both ranged and hand to hand combat as they navigate each Battle Board toward their objective. Wartile will also be making an eagerly awaited appearance at EGX Rezzed in London’s Tobacco Dock in the Unreal Showcase Zone from the 30th March through to 1st April.

“Currently the game is fully playable and generally bug free with three different figurine classes and the first quarter of the story line, with associated battle boards, is playable. With the completion of the campaign battle boards, a multiplayer battle board will unlock allowing players to engage in quick matches against other random players.”

Two other games that fall in-line with Wartile are both Nyheim tabletop and Northgard – currently seeking Linux vote.

Wartile is available now on Steam Early Access priced $19.99, €19.99, £14.99. A 10% discount offer will be in place for its first week on sale, until March 24th. And obviously Linux and Mac support will arrive later, no specific release date has been set.
