Warlander Is A Dark Fantasy Soulslike With Lightsabers

If you seek revenge, you should dig so many graves

We wrote about Warlander at the end of last month, and I loved how it looks and the things it’s trying to achieve. It takes place in a dark fantasy world, one where you have been resurrected to try and wreak vengeance on those that wronged you. What sets it apart from the competition is the intensely visceral combat that has you cutting your enemies to ribbons with a lightsaber style sword.

It looks incredible, but it’s not just pretty, it’s deep too. There’s a skill tree to mess around with, abilities to learn and master, and loads of enemies to keep you on your toes. This all sounds excellent on its own, but the most intriguing thing about Warlander is that it’s a roguelike, which means you can relive this power fantasy countless times. Of course, that also means you’re going to die a lot, but you’re not going to let that stop you, are you?

Well, I’m not just writing about Warlander again because I love soulslikes and roguelikes. I mean, I do love them, but the most exciting thing I can bring you today is that the game finally has a release date, and that means we can all slash our way through our problems when it releases on February 26th 2020. That’s next week, which means you can bet you’ll be seeing a lot more of Warlander (Morelander) in around a week’s time. That’s good news for you because it looks great, but it’s also good news for me because it’s perfectly my kind of nonsense.
