Publisher Kalypso Media and developer Frima Studio have today released a brand-new video featurette in preparation for the launch of Disciples: Liberation next month. 'The Companions of Disciples: Liberation' introduces players to a handful of the unique and morally dubious individuals whom they will be able to get to know, recruit, and even romance, if they so wish, as they fight and loot their way across the war-torn world of Nevendaar.
Disciples: Liberation marks a new beginning for the franchise, allowing players to explore a richly detailed dark fantasy world, fight foul beasts in intricate turn-based combat, take on hundreds of unique quests and foster relationships with an assortment of in-world factions: from a human empire tinged by religious extremism to the dark forces of the undead lead by a mad queen. Alliances forged, players can build an army and trade hard-earned resources for an assortment of upgrades to their home base. No choice is without consequence and depending on decisions and political alignments, one wrong move could see a deadly domino effect, irrevocably changing the course of their story.
Disciples: Liberation will be released on October 21 for Windows PC, PlayStation®4|5, and Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S.
