When the world comes to an end, we’ll just have to take it in stride — one turn at a time.
It’s certainly been a while since the gaming world has seen an isometric turn-based post-apocalyptic RPG, but steel yourself for mild Fallout flashbacks when you lay your eyes on the upcoming Dreadlands. Created by Blackfox Studios and coming to the gaming world in 2019, Dreadlands invites players to form a gang and venture out into the shared world of Krater.
Blackfox founder Peter Nilsson said that he was inspired by older games like X-Com and wanted to bring that style of play to an online setting: “With Dreadlands we want to take the online elements of an MMO or a shared world shooter and combine it with addictive turn-based gameplay.”
Dreadlands has a distinctive cel-shaded look, reminiscent of Borderlands (which is also making news as of late). Both PvE and PvP content was mentioned, as well as base building and an “epic story-driven campaign.” The title will be shown off this coming weekend at EGX Rezzed and is taking up shop on Steam.
