What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We've completed only a major game mechanics. There's a lot of work to be done with balancing, GUI usability, single- and multi-player parts both, where we will need a continuous flow of players feedback. Also there's a lot of content waiting to be added like units, cards, more single-player campaigns and skirmish battlegrounds. So we're looking forward for feedback from a true fans of complex, tactical board games, to make Warbands a tactical gem on release.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Full release is planned for a spring 2017.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Release version will have a lot more content and features like:
  • More miniatures
  • Cards
  • Crafting system
  • Tournaments
  • Events
  • Clans system
  • More skirmish maps
  • At least 3 single-player campaigns
We plan to add more features to combat mechanics such as boost points (weapon racks, shogun's banner, water bucket e.t.c), units conditions (burning, bleeding, poisoned..), 3 and 4-player skirmish modes and so on.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Right now we've completed a major game mechanics: combat system, characters, tutorial, units and cards boosters, Orders and Abilities cards, skirmish maps. But still there's a lot of work to be done with balancing, GUI and single-player part.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We might slightly increase the price as soon as we will add the major single-player campaign, which will be the largest of our scenarios.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Some of feedback we've received during our small beta-test already transformed into content. So we always looking forward to more gameplay and balancing suggestions.”

About This Game

Warbands:Bushido - is a miniatures board game with cards, miniatures, dice (i.e. dice random involved) and beautiful terrains to fight on, with both multiplayer battles boardgamers used to, and challenging single-player campaigns (soon to be released), essential for computer RPGs.

Game has a isometric, tabletop-style look with miniature-style characters, cards, dice, pre-rendered battlefields and story-mode locations. There will be more than 100 various paintable units and heroes planned for full-scale release and later additions. Story driven single-player will be highly influenced by Final Fantasy Tactics and Valkyria Chronicles, with several different campaigns with their own characters and events. While multiplayer skirmish will let you test your skills in best traditions of tabletop wargame classics like Warmachine or Mordheim with a fast-paced Hearthstone-like gameplay.
