Launch date for Warlander for PS5 and Xbox is May 18.
Warlander, a free-to-play, third-person, online multiplayer combat game, will debut on May 18 for the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series, according to publisher PLAION and developer Toylogic. Cross-play between the console versions and the current PC (Steam) version will be available.
Below are the most recent details.
Warlander features a new genre of competitive gaming that is a hybrid between hack-and-slash, shooter, and strategy with up to 100 players divided into five armies with the goal of destroying each other’s castles. Boasting three different classes: the warrior, the mage, and the cleric, players can choose their preferred playstyle including the use of catapults, siege towers, battering rams, and cataclysmic idols capable of potentially changing the tide of the battle or securing victory.
In preparation for the console launch there are:
Two New Maps
Dawn Bridge B is an alternate version of the original Dawn Bridge map but is covered in fog along with other new playstyle updates.
Moonlit Temple allows players to experience battles under the moonlight and features four catapults in the center that can play an important role in pushing the frontline. Additionally, siege battles utilize two routes, requiring new strategies for both defense and attack.
Two New Skills
The Divine Hammer builds up the cleric’s power that is unleashed with a mighty hammer blow. It blasts nearby enemies away and heals allies at the same time. The skill can be charged up in three stages – with the higher stages boosting range, damage, and knockback
Phoenix is an ultimate skill exclusive to the new Rank 5 Mage title, Inferno. Players can summon a phoenix to fly over the battlefield that rains down fire, destroying siege weapons and other structures
Warlander combatants have finished over 400,000 battles on Steam so far—slaying over one million players in the process.
It is now the perfect time to join Warlander with the start of Season 1 of the Season Pass, which contains new armor skins, new weapons, new emblems, new titles, and more. The shop will also receive an update with new items becoming available at the start of the season.
