Glorious Companions is a single-player turn based tactical RPG adventure where you have freedom to choose your own path and endgame as you play – ranging from becoming a powerful lord, to solving the mystery of the Ancient Guardians, or just making a fortune from trade.
Currently in development by Ancient Forge Studios, Glorious Companions is a tactical turn based RPG that gives players an unprecedented amount of freedom to carve out their own adventures in its rich fantasy world. In the game you’ll take on the role of the leader of a mercenary company and will set out in pursuit of fortune, glory and power. You really will have to be a leader to your men too – they’ll take notice of your actions in battle you need to keep their morale up and you’ll also have to make sure they get paid (mercenaries don’t fight for free).
Glorious Companions generates a new world for each new playthrough and in each one you can decide what your story will be. You can join a faction and rise through its ranks, you can found your own kingdom, you can become a vigilante, solve the mystery of the Ancient Guardians, become an honorable hero, a scoundrel or you could just focus on managing wood supplies for the surrounding cities. It’s entirely up to you and no two games will ever be the same.
The turn based tactical combat in sees each side attempting to eliminate the rival captain. You command your units in grid based battlefields, with you able to move and attack as in the X-Com games. You have to be careful though – nobody is invincible and a even your strongest warriors can be taken out by a well aimed strike.
The visuals of Glorious Companions look great but it’s the deep tactical turn based combat and the freedom to forge your own adventures that really entices. Turn based tactical RPGs are usually fairly linear mission based affairs so it’ll be nice to truly be in charge of your own destiny for a change. Sign up for the Alpha to be one of the first to enter Glorious Companions’ world full of possibilities.
