PCGamesN’s Joe Robinson was wow’ed by Wartales, a medieval open-world tactical RPG following a mercenary warband from publisher Shiro Games. With survival dependent on managing food and payroll and a large land mass full of fights that can be tackled in any order, Wartales offers an engaging strategic experience on Steam Early Access:

It was a short but sweet demo, and I can see why Wartales is already generating some buzz. Wandering around the campaign map was dreamy, and reminded me why I loved Battle Brothers’ design in the first place. Seeing it in 3D, while not strictly speaking necessary, helped immerse me in the fantasy even more, and the ‘camp’ interface is a great touch.
