Looking for a new adventure? One that draws inspiration from the most classic of pen and paper games? Project Witchstone may just be for you.
Created by the development team at Spearhead Games – previously known for putting together Stories: The Path of Destinies – Project Witchstone has previously been confirmed for PC. Now though it’s also getting a console version, with a drop onto Xbox One and PS4 in Q2 2020.
Project Witchstone promises to offer unmatched freedom and opportunity as you look to roleplay in a vibrant, reactive world. Every move that the adventurers make ripples outward into the environment, opening new doors and closing others, as dynamic systems intertwine to produce a one-of-a-kind experience tailored to the your most detailed of actions.
Set on a newly-colonized continent where a patchwork of competing factions struggle against one another for control, Project Witchstone’s landscape is teeming with potential allies and adversaries to befriend, confront, double-cross, rob, swindle, and more. Everyone on this massive island has their own motivations, allegiances, and routines that connect with the people around them to form a bustling place filled with boundless potential.
This is a game that has been designed around choice and consequence, and that means the world of Project Witchstone will be able to provide the ultimate canvas; one with near-endless possibilities that players are invited to explore, shape, plunder, or even destroy. There will be a whole myriad of interweaving systems spanning from turn-based combat and dialogue trees, to dice-based ability checks and subterfuge that wield influence over the world and allow travellers to write their own unique stories and decide the fate of this realm.
“Project Witchstone will deliver a roleplaying experience unlike any video game you’ve seen before,” said Atul Mehra, co-founder, Spearhead Games. “Bringing the freedom of pen-and-paper games into a digital space is such an exciting undertaking and we can’t wait to share the experience with everyone when Project Witchstone comes to consoles and PC early next year.”
