What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The Waylanders is made by RPG lovers. We know there are many more RPG lovers worldwide, and we would like to count on all of you to help The Waylanders grow and improve. Our community is the best and most useful asset we have, and we want to listen to all of you. Early Access allows us to work side-by-side with the community and that's why we want to release an early version ahead of the final launch. Your feedback will be a game-changer!

Don't hesitate to contact us in the Steam Discussions section. We will be checking all the feedback posted.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The Waylanders Releases from Early Access February 2, 2022.”

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

“Some limitations you’ll experience playing Early Access:

  • Game length: The Waylanders is divided into three acts. The Alpha version includes a part of the first act. We'll include more story content in upcoming updates.
  • Languages: you’ll be able to play in English during the early versions. The final release will include the rest of the available languages: Russian, Simplified Chinese, German, French and Spanish
  • Some voices and dialogues are missing.
  • Some cinematics are missing, meaning some parts of the story may not be strongly connected in the Alpha.
  • Saved games: some major future updates could delete your saved game.
  • Stats and attributes: we'll improve the combat balance during Early Access.
  • User experience: expect major changes to adapt the game to players. We'll check all your feedback and take it seriously to improve the game in multiple ways.
  • Bugs and game crashes: if you hate to find gameplay issues and unexpected errors, maybe Early Access is not for you. Try to be patient and expect some issues when playing.

All this means that The Waylanders will be a bigger RPG when it reaches the final version and will include much more content.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“In terms of story, 25% of the game's content will be available in the upcoming updates, and we'll be progressively adding more. The combat system is fully available, but we’ll improve balancing, some combat mechanics, skills, advanced classes, and more.”

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

“We appreciate the feedback from our Kickstarter backers and Early Access users. This means that yes, the price will increase in the future.”

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

“We are constantly improving The Waylanders. We take your comments very seriously and we intend to review all the reports you send in. We have a Steam discussion section for Early Access players, so you'll be able to report any issue you find in the game directly to us in Steam. Don't hesitate in telling us your impressions, suggestions, and feedback. We are here to listen to your opinion.”

About This Game


The first meeting between the Celts and their gods, the Tuatha de Danaan, should have been a time of celebration and enlightenment, but when negotiations go catastrophically wrong, a battle against a god leaves you near death and untethered from time!

Return to a land overtaken by magickal corruptions and a kingdom splintered into multiple factions warring for the throne. The Celtic society, a complex tapestry of different religions, human cultures, and mortal and immortal races such as the Mourians, Werewolves, Goblins, and monsters threaten to tear at every seam. Will you support the immature, yet rightful, heir, or the pragmatic general in their bid for the throne? What alliances will you forge, what friendships will you foster, what romances will you pursue, and... what will you do when you are suddenly thrust into Medieval Spain?


Things look pretty different in Galicia under Christianity than it did under Celtic rule. Magic is fading, religion is everywhere, and much has changed. Where are your immortal allies now, and what has become of the souls of your mortal friends? Discover changes made to the land over a thousand years of cultural change. Could the corrupt magicks that interfered during your meeting with the Tuatha have led to the destruction of all that the Celtic world held dear?


The Waylanders draws inspiration from classic RPG, opening up a world of adventure for you and your companions to explore. Use real time with pause to strategically select party member combat spells and abilities to defeat roving bandits, rampaging beasts, monsters of legend, and more!

Discover a treasure trove of weapons, armour, trinkets, and more to outfit your party through your journey. With gods standing in your way, you’ll need every edge you can get.


The companions who set out alongside you on your journey make a massive difference in how you’ll overcome enemies. Different party class makeups grant a variety of Formation options, each with powerful offensive and defensive abilities. As you level up, unlock new classes, and explore, you’ll discover new Formations and formation abilities to add to your roster.


The Waylanders is an exciting fantasy RPG inspired by classics such as Dragon Age: Origins, Neverwinter Nights, and Baldur’s Gate.
