Munich, Wednesday, May 16th, 2023 – Toylogic and PLAION are proud to announce that Warlander, the free-to-play, third-person, online multiplayer warfare game launches today on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S with full crossplay capability across all platforms, including PC.
Warlander features a new genre of competitive gaming which is a hybrid between hack-and-slash, shooter and strategy with up to 100 players divided into five armies with the goal of destroying each other’s castles. Boasting three different classes: the warrior, the mage or the cleric, players can choose their preferred playstyle including the use of catapults, siege towers, battering rams and cataclysmic idols capable of potentially changing the tide of the battle or securing victory.
“Warlander launched on PC to wonderful response from fans and new soldiers alike. The feedback and support we have received has gone beyond what we could have hoped for and we are thrilled to now bring both PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S players into the fold through crossplay. No matter which of the three platforms you play on, form armies with your friends and join us in 100-player battles.” – said Yoichi Take, Game Director and President of Toylogic
Season 1 of the game’s ongoing content plan will kick off simultaneously on all platforms and will contain new armor skins, new weapons, new emblems, new titles and more. Warlander will also receive patches, bug fixes and feature updates on a regular basis.
Warlander is free to play right now on Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5 and Steam.
